Fab Five – Holiday Gift Guide Edition

‘Tis the season to share lots of great gift guides being published around the winter blogger-land. These posts are so good they need no further introduction.

Lazy Man’s Gift Guide 2008.  I enjoyed the layout of this gift guide as Lazy has taken the work out of gift-selection by matching items with the various personalities on your list (him, her, the chef, the traveler, etc.).  My favorite item is the ThinkSport Sports Bottle–an alternative to plastic water bottles.  Better for the environment, your health, and your wallet!  (@Lazy Man and Money)

50 Frugal Gifts You Can Give This Christmas.  Just like the title reads, these are fifty frugal gift ideas.  From this set I really like the picnic pack, even though I could probably come up with an cheaper alternative from the dollar store. Still, it inspired a great idea for this spring and summer!  (@Bible Money Matters)

Free 2008 Cool Savings Holiday Savings Guide.  The folks at Cool Savings have put together an excellent guide for saving around the holidays.  The variety of topics is what makes this guide such a great deal (well, that and the price–free!).  Check it out for ways to save on gifts, holiday travel, decorations and more!

The Best Gift You Can Give Yourself.  While we are on the subject of gift-giving, I have to mention this great post from Ron. Now is a good time to treat yourself to a holiday budget, and then carry over those principles into the New Year. (@ The Wisdom Journal)

This isn’t a complete list of my favorite holiday gift guides, but in keeping with the roundup rules I’ll stick to just five for now.  Look for another roundup of holiday gift ideas soon!
