Let the surfeit of charming gift-giving commence

Sparkly charm-i-days to you and yours.

Wrapper foreshadowing of charm to follow

It’s that time of year again, charmers. Time for early onset reindeer decorations in stores. Time for eggnog lattes and gingerbread man bubble bath.

Again this year, I’m doing my best to bypass my cranky interior monologue about commercialism and the entirely wrong-seeming tableaux of Christmas trees sitting helplessly next to discount Halloween candy. Instead, I’m easing into the cheer-making spirit by embracing it. Gently. So that means it’s time for the 2009 Charm-i-days gift guide: We’ll lead up to the holidays one charming, thoughtful gift idea at a time.

That said:

With that trumpet-like prelude, the gifting can begin. And oh, it will begin …  shortly.
