Do you have someone on your holiday shopping list who is especially hard to buy for? We all have at least one but this year, we also have a little help! All My Children’s Denise Vasi (Randi) is sharing some of her holiday favorites! has learned that Denise is going shopping with Essence Magazine to help us all find the perfect gifts!!

Denise’s first hint? Don’t forget about discount chain stores! According to Denise you can find really great buys there from top designers but at much lower costs than buying direct from a designer’s own store. That is the perfect advice for those of us heading out to last minute holiday parties, isn’t it? And while you’re checking out the chains keep an eye out for accessories! For those hard-to-buy-for girlfriends, Denise suggests gold-toned jewelry, dangly earrings or stacked bangles.

Hey, that’s a great way to save time and money!

Okay, on to co-worker gifts. Denise suggests a bottle of wine because it is a gender-less, safe gift idea!

Finally, if money is really tight, Denise suggests a gift from the heart. A specially created scrapbook or photo album is certain to please anyone – even someone who already has everything else! And, if you’re interested in fun, handmade gifts but don’t have time to make them yourself, click here for some great buys!
