Friends! I thought it would be super duper fun to share some of my favorite things with you this holly-day season in a gift guide! Grab some great ideas for that special someone in your life! Or, Aunt Edna. Why is she so hard to buy for?
For the mindset maverick
Know someone who loves to keep their mindset in check? Head over to these useful, inspirational mugs, notebooks, and shirts from Louisa Dykstra, author of the Joy Revolution book! My favorite is this one (above), check out everything she’s got at this link!
For the prayer warrior
Thisssss place, y’all. I hand my family the catalog, and say, go hog wild. There is not a thing they make that I wouldn’t love. Current favorite: this prayer box. How sweet is that?
For the one who’s always cold
If this isn’t the toastiest set of slippers I ever did see… well. They are, so. I won’t do anything like eat my hat, because we can all clearly see how very roasty toasty they surely must be. Also, Tom’s, so win-win! If you aren’t familiar with the mission of the company, head over and read all about it here! Then go get you some slippers! Or any of the billion styles of shoes they have now! When I first bought a pair of Tom’s, they had only the alpargatas– and I love them to this day.
For the one seeking guidance
My current favorite oracle card deck is this one from Kyle Gray- I have several of his decks, and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on his new one, Angels and Ancestors, as well. I reach for this one more than any other, mostly because the artwork is so stunning. The artist’s name is Lily Moses, and the way she captures the spirit of the card subject is just beyond imagination- highly recommend for anyone who enjoys card readings. PS, full disclosure-amazon links in this post are affiliate links, which means I’ll earn a tiny kickback if you choose to purchase.
For the lover of literature
Oooooh, this book. Poetry fan on your list? Person who loves to visit other lives, live through stories that are different from their own? Loves seeing things from new and unexpected angles? Grab this, they will be happy.
For the tabletop gamer
Looking for something the whole family will enjoy together? Check out our favorite board game, Ticket to Ride. This one never gets old, and it’s complicated enough to keep adults interested, while still being accessible for younger members of the family. The box says ages 8 and up, but my 6 year old was able to play with a little support. If your family does get tired of the base game, there are myriad extension packs you can purchase to add to the fun! Days of Wonder now makes a junior version, too, called First Journey.
For the one who needs pampering
If you’ve got a mom in your life, this product line is the best to pamper her! I love the scents, especially sugar kiss, and the luxury price delivers a real luxury feel- these are the products sold at my local day spa. My favorite is the sugar scrub, but everything they make is fantastic!
For the kid-at-heart
An absolute dream gift for any Harry Potter collector, this Hogwarts Castle lego set will blow every other gift out of the water! Looking for something a little less pricey? Lego makes tons of sets intended for the young-at-heart- cars, city skylines, famous monuments, and even this very cool ship in a bottle!
For the imagineers
For the little guys, you can’t beat this dollhouse from PlanToys. I love every product this company makes- the company is ‘green’, socially responsible, and they make fantastic products. Some of the pieces in this house are modular, meaning you can decide where the windows and doors should go, and move them around as you like. I got this toy for my two teens when they were little, and it is still going strong for my younger two ten years later! Definitely worth the investment!
For the one drawn to ceremony
Do you have someone in your life who practices spiritual ceremony as a part of their practice? Bell Pine Art Farm has many beautiful, handmade, very reasonably priced pieces, like this River Keeper! They make statuary, focusing tools like handheld labyrinths, and offering bowls. SO much goodness here, check them out!
That’s all, folks!
Wheeee! That was fun! I hope you loved this little tour of favorites as much as I loved making it for you! Happy holidays to you and yours!
