The True Colors Top Ten Christmas Gift Ideas Guide

Tis the Season for Giving True Colors style

For many of us, Christmas has become another highly commercialized holiday that requires us to demonstrate our love and affection through the purchase of gifts.  But trying to find the right and perfect gift during the Christmas rush, can be downright overwhelming, especially if we are the type to wait until the last minute. Furthermore, the longer we wait to begin shopping, the harder it can be to make meaningful choices.  How often have you received a Christmas gift from a co-worker or loved one that left you wondering if the giver really knows you at all?
