The 2007 Pinks & Blues Holiday Gift Guide is an online guide of the coolest, hippest, most fabulous sites for holiday gift giving.

In keeping with our tradition at Pinks & Blues, where we recommend “trendy and ultra-hip family picks” daily, our 2007 Pinks & Blues Holiday Gift Guide features mostly “indie” sites and products from entrepreneurs who, like us, love what they do, love what they create, but don’t have a Wal-Mart sized budget to get the word out.

So while you’re busy working, dropping the kids off at school, food shopping, making the beds, coaching a soccer league, cooking dinner, taking the dog for a walk, arranging play dates and trying to squeeze in a shower, let the Pinks & Blues Girls make holiday shopping easy – and fun – for you and your family.

*We even included a Dooney & Bourke handbag giveaway as part of our Holiday Gift Guide!*
