I realize there are about oh… roughly a million gift guides on the internet. But allow me to add one more. My gift guide has a collection of things that I love, enjoy and new things I have stumbled across this year that I think would be a treat for any gift recipient.
Holiday Gift Guide
St. Jude Tribute Cards
Have a long list of extended family members to buy gifts for? Struggling to think of something perfect for each one but just really overwhelmed with it all. How about this brilliant idea? Pick up a small stocking stuffer for everyone and then use the money you would have spent on all of those gifts and send out St. Jude Tribute cards to everyone on your list. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is an organization who will always receive my donations because of this fact – No family ever pays St. Jude for anything. The tribute cards are adorable and easy to order online – simply follow this link and enter all the names and addresses you’d like to send cards to and they will mail them out for you. The cards will be printed with your message and let the recipient know that a donation has been made to St. Jude in their name. (Trust me no one on your list can complain about this gift).
Birchbox Membership and Gift Boxes
I joined Birchbox a few months ago as a special treat for myself and I have to say I am like a kid in a candy store every month when that sweet little box arrives in the mail filled with beauty and lifestyle samples. For $10 a month you get some fabulous treasures to test out – often full size products. They have Birchbox for men as well!
Oh maybe you have heard me mention Cowboy Magic products once or 12 times in the past few months and while this may be biased what with it being my Aunt and Uncle’s company – that doesn’t make the products any less fabulous. Have a horse lover in the family – give them the gift of fabulous equine grooming products (also great for dogs!), have any women on your gift list who enjoy a high quality hair care product – this is the gift for them. The Detangler & Shine is my personal favorite – I use it as a detangler for my girls and a blow dry serum on my own hair! Check out their skincare website and their pet care website to find a store near you!
If you have someone on your gift list who is a gardening enthusiast or what’s to learn how to live a more sustainable life. Than pick up a copy of this brand new book for them. Angela England has filled this book with so much valuable information that you will wonder how she found the time to write it with 5 young children at home. The book isn’t just for experienced gardeners or farmers – even the novice can follow along and learn just what they need to transform their own yard (and lifestyle). Check out the website this week for some fabulous giveaways as well or order the book today.
DIY Gift Tag Ornaments
And if you need to add an extra special touch to your gifts this year, than make my DIY Gift Tags from mason jar lids, that double as Ornaments – bonus!
How about all of you? What are your favorite gifts to give AND receive.
