How I Wandered Amazon Using a Song for Outstandingly Unique Gift Ideas

Every time I hear “my favorite things”, a little tune breaks out in my head as the classic Julie Andrews song in Sound of Music.  So, I decided to use it to find new gift ideas and I was pleasantly surprised!  Whenever someone asks me what I want, I never know what to say and I usually just say that I’m fine with whatever because I really am.  The great part about this list is that most of it is under $50 with quite a few options under $25!
