Holiday “Pin Inspiration” from World Market

The Holidays are upon us and I’m online looking for gifts, as usual. I’m always stumped for gifts for certain people in my life. Along with the gift giving, I have Holiday parties to attend, baking to do, and people asking what I want for Christmas. Luckily, there’s this awesome online website called, “Pinterest”. Have you ever heard of it? I thought so.

As as avid shopper of World Market, I was recently asked to create a PinInspiration Board on Pinterest of my favorite things that I found online at World Market’s website for the Holiday Season. I had a ton of fun working on this board, and started calculating all of the money that I mentally spent while making it. World Market is going to drive me to the poor house. At least, my house will be decorated for the Holidays, and everyone will great gifts…virtually and mentally, of course.

Because there are so many awesome things that I “pinned”, I thought that I would share some of the best items:

Holiday Baking Essentials: I bake a ton during the Holidays and I found some fun and cute things at World Market. The Gingerbread House Kit and the Sleigh Cupcake Stands are two of my favorites in the baking department.

Hanukkah Items found at World Market: For my Jewish friends like Ciaran, who celebrate Hanukkah.

Please allow me to add, this may come in handy...If you are in the market for a piece of jewelry you can realize significant savings by waiting for the right time of year to buy. Christmas and Valentine's day are especially busy times of the year for jewelers, and they may be less likely to negotiate during these times of year.
