  1. I am a bit surprised. Are you an american? The reason I am asking is, you are talking about holidays season, and you named Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Is this post for americans? Dont take me wrong .. I am just asking.. By your name, I thought you were Indian.

    • The Mom Writes says:

      Hi Smriti, thanks for stopping by. No, I’m not American but a large percentage of my readers are and the Holiday Gift Guide concept is largely US/Australia/Canada-centric, hence the mention of those holidays.. :-)
