Christmas is such a special time of year. All of the decorations and feelings of joy make me want to permanently relocate to the North Pole! Gift giving can be stressful. I know that sounds so stupid, but it can, especially when you want to find the perfect gift for friends and loved ones. Below is my gift guide I put together to get you started, or maybe you will find THE perfect gift and won’t have to look any further!
1. Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candle
Do NOT, I repeat… do NOT spend $50 plus dollars on a candle. Bath & Body Works has the BEST candles, the triple wick allows them to fill your entire house with the lovely scent of your choosing. Speaking of… they have about a bajillion different scents so it is practically impossible to not find one you like. Word of advice do NOT, I repeat…do NOT spend full price on these candles, they go on sale pretty regularly. I buy in bulk when these babies go on sale.
2. Monogramed or Personalized

When you give a gift to someone that is personalized for them, it is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give them. Taking the time to add their personalization to an item can really make the best gift. It is something they will always have and makes the recipient of the gift feel like you went above and beyond and in turn makes them feel super special!
3. Tea Set or French Press
Tea or coffee is such a lovely gift especially when you know the recipient is an avid tea or coffee drinker. I love using french presses because the coffee tastes really good. When I make tea I usually like to make loose leaf, because it is higher quality and also tastes much better. Not everyone has the proper contraption to brew loose leaf tea so gifting a beautiful teapot is something they not only can use often, but also cherish. Check out my post on how switching to tea can give you more energy!
4. A Book
5. Nice Body Wash or Cream
Using a nice quality body wash can really transform your shower experience. This is a great gift, especially for someone that would not normally buy this for themselves. If you are loyal to drugstore brands, I recommend branching out and trying something new yourself. It really does make a difference in your skin. A beautifully wrapped body wash or cream with a lovely bow or ribbon makes a beautiful gift.
6. Gift Basket
I don’t know about you all, but I love me a good gift basket! First of all I am always wowed by the presentation, and then I have to get over the fact that to use anything I actually have to take the prettiness apart. But once I do, I just love all of the fun snacks and gourmet chocolates! I personally believe gift baskets to be under utilized in gift giving these days. This is a perfect gift for your holiday party hostess, someone who lives far away, or a great supplemental gift for under the tree!
Ohhhhh Disney! If you know me, you know I am a Disney fanatic, if you don’t like Disney, there may be somethin not quite right with you. I know Disney gifts are not for everyone, but for the most part, people really love Disney. Check out the super cool Haunted Mansion Collectors Plate…..and of course the amazing Cinderella Pumpkin Carriage Ornament!
9. Keepsake Ornament

Gifting an ornament is a classic and wonderful gift. Most people collect nice ornaments and helping add to their collection is a really nice gesture. I really love the world of ornaments. The detailing and colors, and the overall art and magic of Christmas that ornaments bring fills me with joy!
