Welcome Fans to the Holiday Gift Guide 2012

brought to you by  Emtpynester Reviews.

I have spent a lot of time and energy, thinking of just the right original items, I think would be a great gift idea for you. Like snowflakes, which are all unique, so are the people we buy for each year, and what better way to create a gift guide then to make it so that you can choose just the right gift for just the right person, unique and personal.

Each day I am going to be bringing you a giveaway, in conjunction with My Gift Guide. This way we will be able to share with you my choices, you will be able to read my reviews, and perhaps be the lucky winner of the day for each individual giveaway.

I will be starting giveaways nightly at 12 am est and ending at midnight the following evening.

I will be updating winners information as soon as I have them confirmed right here on this post as it progresses!
