Gift Guide 2013 for Mothers, Sisters and Girlfriends

This is my fourth year writing a Gift Guide. Each time it is such a joy because I get to spend hours scouring the web for presents I find unique and think the women in my life would love. This year I tried to find gifts that would be useful to the recipient and might pose the question, “Where did you get that. It is so flippin cool?” from her friends.
