May and Mother’s Day crept up on us this year but I wanted to be sure to share some of the items I’ve been eyeing, not only for my own mom but for me personally!
Less than two weeks before Xmas, I mean we are totally in the spirit as we speak. The tree is up and you can hear nothing but Xmas songs all over the radio. For ABDZ, it's our time of the year where we would share our gift guide, this will be the Editor's edition. Hello, it's me! François from ABDZ, I decided to take a different direction this year and I divided my hand-picked selections into imaginative type of characters of what (in my opinion) would describe our most popular categories this year on ABDZ. Introducing the Shutterbug, the Vlogger, the "UX, UXD, UED or/and XD", the Originator and the Fitness Guru. I hope you will enjoy this gift guide and we wanna wish you all a very Happy Holidays!
