Holiday Gift Guide for the Frequent Traveler

I love putting together holiday gift guides, because I absolutely love buying gifts.  Being a avid traveler myself, The Holiday Gift Guide for the Frequent Traveler is definitely one of my favourite gift guides to put together. Some of my picks are practical such as the electronic luggage scale, travel blanket, passport holder, or the luggage.  And some of the gifts are more thoughtful neat gifts to give a person who has a severe case of wanderlust, such as the clock, print to hang on the wall or the remote controlled Volkswagen.

Handmade Finds November

It's here! Handmade Finds November! If you are in the holiday gift buying spirit then nothing is sweeter than receiving a handmade gift.  So here a few shops that make beautiful handmade products that you can definitely put on your wish list or give as a gift!

1. A Cat-Like Curiosity 

A Cat-Like Curiosity is a fabulously arty, creative and curious business based in Yorkshire in the UK. It is staffed by Sarah Leonard - an artist, creativity coach and curious soul who loves all things arty and cat-like. I work from my home studio using mixed media and illustrative techniques to create gorgeous art. I then use that art to create all kinds of other goodies. I transfer my art onto necklaces, candles, brooches, cards and more!

This gorgeous and whimsical piece of art work is created on canvas board with lots of lovely layers of collage, paint, watercolours, stamping and more. It features a wonderfully whimsical lady with a soulful look and a musical soul. She appears by moonlight with her owl companion and they sing their own song.
