Say hello to the hustle and bustle of the holidays! (Eeekk!) Every year we put together a series of gift guides to help you with your Christmas shopping, and we are so excited to hear just how much you all love them. Can you believe we are here again? Oh what fun. My hope is to get my shopping done relatively early this year, I know we all find it more enjoyable to be prepared and really slow down with the hustle and bustle. Does anyone else promise themselves that every year? Especially so, when thinking about gifts that need to be sent out to your loved ones that aren’t close to home. AND on time! With Black Friday just around the corner, what better time to start than now?
With the world being so connected these days, I’m sure many of you – like me – have loved ones from a far. To kick off our Gift Guide series we have those loved ones that are close to your heart on our mind, and need to be checked off our Christmas list first. Below you’ll find my favourite items that are easy to package up and ship. Along with well wishes for this special time of year from whatever distance that might keep you apart.
Let’s start off with our local Vancouver friends at Saje. This Am to Pm Diffuser Blend Bar is filled with pure holiday bliss. With 4 scents that will bring nothing but relaxation and comfort to your faraway loved one that loves essential oils. I love the marble block that stores the little bottles in a design-friendly fashion. This really is the gift that keeps on giving. It will fill hearts with Liquid Sunshine and Energy to wind down at night with Tranquility and a Peaceful Slumber. A must in every home.
Nothing beats some good skin care during the cold season, that’s right, we’re talking about Goop’s Rose Quartz Glow Kit. It is my go-to every morning! I keep mine in the fridge for an instant pick me up while I prepare my morning coffee. While we’re on the wellness train, a book I’ve been loving to fight that lack of vitamin D is Rebekah Lyon’s Rhythms of Renewal. It is my current favourite book, a truly enjoyable read, filled with tips on how to renew your daily rhythm to help escape the stress and anxiety of the day leaning on God’s word. Plus, the author Rebekah is as sweet as they come and full of goodness and insight for this busy season we find ourselves in.
Wish your distant dearests the warmest of winters with this Cashmere-lined leather tech gloves, this adorable Ribbed Beanie with Faux Fur Pom-pom, or this comfortable Long-sleeve Flannel Sleep Set in Star Dot all from J.Crew. And how lovely are these EMU Australia Mayberry slippers to keep the feet fabulous! For that wild friend in your life, who can forget about these stylish Jungle Cat Ankle Socks.
For those that are all about home holiday decor, these Festive Wire Word Ornaments and Our Home 2019 Ornament will bring your loved ones the wishes you intend for their space! Or send them something thoughtful to help organize and care for their space and possessions like this Leather Charger Roll Up or this Cookbook & Tablet Stand, because let’s face it, we all need a little more care and love for our devices.
That wraps up the first of our Gift Guide Series! We hope you get a good start this season for your long-distant loved ones.
