Feast of Winterveil Gift Giving Guide

It's that time of year again. The time when Great Father Winter brings us citizens of Azeroth gifts! But you don't have to have a beard to join in the gift giving fun! I usually always get my WoW friends gifts during this time and I highly suggest you guys do too! What's that? You don't have any ideas you say? Well then let me help you! For today I have organized a guide to help you with gift ideas for ANY kind of WoW player in your virtual life.


 Warning - Some of my suggestions are fairly obvious. This is to make a point. Gifts don't have to be one of a kind or crazy unique. It's the thought that counts, really! Sure some of my suggestions may be more creative then others, but seriously people will be thankful just to know you thought of them this holiday!

          General Gifts
