Sky's the Limit: Gift Guides for the Design Lover - Part 1

I'll admit, the phrases "shoot for the moon," "money's no object," and "sky's the limit" rarely ever apply to my spending circumstances. In fact, with all the options out there, I often wonder, if I didn't have a budget, how would I ever decide what to buy at all??

But I do realize that there are those out there that may not be in the same situation. There are those select individuals that are more than ready and able to splurge on themselves or others at the holidays. For them, the term "wish list" is less of a "wish" and more of a reality. These are lists for the luxury minded. But what about the rest of us? Well, let's suspend reality for a moment, shall we?
