BTB's Holiday Gift Guide

There are really two types of people when it comes to holiday shopping. The ones who plan, coupon, Black Friday brawl, and have everything ordered and/or bought before December hits. Or those who are frantically at CVS, Target, or Amazon Prime the night before, praying everything comes to together by the next morning. Ok, there are probably some in-betweeners as well. Since we are in the Holiday spirit, BTB wanted to lend a helping hand. We’ve accumulated a list of places to get some must-have items that are owned and operated by ladies within our inner circle. Check out this list and happy shopping:
