The holiday season is in full swing in New York City! I love this time of year: the lights, the holiday parties, and the downtime! I am off to India tomorrow for one final trip of 2016 and when I get back I can't wait to hunker down with my fiancé and our dog.
Before I go I wanted to share some gift ideas. All of these items are things I already own or that you'll find on my christmas list and are great for travel!
