Holiday gift shopping can be mind-boggling for some.
And for others it’s a walk in the park.
No, I’m not bragging. Most of the time I have no glue what to give. However, you know when that item crosses your path….and wallet!
I have taken the time to list a few of my favorite gift selections.
So if you have VFJ in your life, fret no more.
