    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Every year it seems, without fail, that one individual or sometimes several seem practically impossible to shop for.  They don’t seem to have any particular things that they have asked for, or they are maybe a coach or special individual that you want to show you care for.  This is always difficult…and can lead to hours upon hours spent in stores just glancing through aisles aimlessly.  Well, stay calm.  Sometimes it is the simplest of things that can please a person and show you are thinking of them.  Here are some last minute “stocking stuffer” type ideas for your shopping troubles.  Some may be more humorous then helpful, but hey, you deserve at least a few laughs!:
