The first of December is tomorrow which means 25 days to shop, wrap and ship the gifts to those you love. And while picking the perfect gift can sometimes be difficult, I’ve gathered a few items that may catch your eye.

With that said, the best gifts are individualized to the person, so choosing an experience (tickets, passes, gift certificate to a spa, etc.) to events the person is eager to attend is almost certain to be a memorable gift. As well, consumables: food, candles, beauty products, any item that can be used and enjoyed that gives the receiver a luxury they may not have spent on themselves is also something to look into especially if you have artisan talents in your backyard.

Needless to say, only you know what the best gifts will be. Trust your intuition, respect your budget and let the holidays begin!

  1. Thanks so much for this list, Shannon! You always come through with wonderful gift ideas. The hard part is resisting the urge to buy one for them and one for me! Have a beautiful holiday season and a happy, healthy and inspiring 2016. I look forward to the many ways in which you will inspire all of us in the coming year! xo

  2. I am so excited to read the Home organization book that you recommended. I looked thru some of the book on Amazon & will be preordering. Great find Thanks!! The code you listed isn’t working – did it expire?

    1. Kristy, Toni’s book looks to be quite comprehension. I too am looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately the promo code was only available for a short period of time and selected books only.
