Don’t know what to buy your girlfriend? Check out 9th&Elm

Last year on Christmas day, I was so excited to open the gifts that had been waiting for me under the tree – until I started opening them. My boyfriend had remembered how much I hated to peel and chop a garlic clove, and had gotten me a garlic press.

9th and elm logo --- takes Dwolla

Of course I sucked it up, smiled and said thank you as convincingly as I could. This year, I have taken it upon myself to be sure I never end up with a kitchen gadget Christmas gift again. I’ve put together a holiday gift guide with some unique finds from 9th & Elm that will satisfy even the pickiest of girlfriends.

To help beat the cold

Tis the season to snuggle up by the fireplace and watch reruns of National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. For the times when you and your girlfriend have to venture into the great outdoors, check out these fashionable clothing items to keep her warm.
