What can I say, I am a sucker for late 90’s holiday acappella...

Don’t know where to begin? Tumblr! Don’t know what you will write about? Just start writing, stuff will come to you (and if not, there are always GIFs to reblog.)

fallingdeep asked: Hi Emily! I've got a question for you: one my friends just had a baby today, and a group of us would like to get a small gift for them.

Do you have any suggestions for something that would be useful and appreciated? Thanks!
