Start Holiday Shopping Today! Our Staff Picks!
The dates seem to be flying by rapid-fire style and I am already curating my holiday closet for events! And just like that, poof – in a month you’ll all be frantically looking for the perfect gift (Hanukkah and Xmas are on the same day, ahhh!) for your mom, sister and BFF. Here at Michaels we are starting early! We have decided that this is not the year to wait till the 11th hour since the holidays are overlapping… instead we are packing away those gifts now. So go ahead and give thanks to us this year because the Michael’s ladies got together and pulled what we think are the best gifts our website has to offer. These lil’ numbers will go fast – so get to shopping! We certainly hope that our boyfriends, husbands and moms see this blog post :)
Please note that all jewelry will come with a plain white box if it is missing its original box.
Check our staffs picks… after all, they are total rockstars!
