Wednesday Wishlist: Top 5 Over $50

It’s part 2 of my Etsy favourites, this week focusing on the presents you would buy for the people you must reeeeeally like – gift ideas over $50!

Last time I explored my favourite treasures under $50, and had to hold back temptation to buy them for myself while uploading the pictures. This week, I am struggling even harder to not buy some of these items I may or may not have been eyeing off for a few months now.

It’s 8 weeks and 1 day until Christmas, time to get your present lists sorted! If you’re not into the Christmas spirit, read my blog post from the start of the month on what my mother taught me about the holidays.
