Blogmas Day 14: My Christmas wishlist

I wasn’t originally going to do a Christmas wishlist post, but I just been loving reading other bloggers’ wishlists, so I decided to make a post of my own.

Here we are for day two of #HBJblogmas and today I’ve got a gift guide for y’all! Today’s post is all about ideas of what to bring to a white elephant gift exchange. If you’re not familiar, in a white elephant, everyone brings a gift to put in a common pool. Then, people draw numbers to determine the order people will pick gifts.
