My Favorite Things {Gift Guide 2017}

Oprah has a list of her favorite things that I always enjoy getting ideas from for Christmas shopping.  So in that same spirit, I thought, why not make one of my own! Here is a list of my favorite 10 things (mostly under $50) that I hope you'll enjoy!

My Favorite Things gift guide #Christmas #gifts


To Be Where You Are is the newest book from my favorite fiction author, Jan Karon.   Mitford is the town I love to return to, again and again.  Like a warm quilt, baked mac n' cheese, a hot cup of apple cider after a day outside, these are my comfort books.  I'm saving this one to read over Christmas vacation. 








These geode bookends are the perfect gift for book lovers.  I gifted these to my sister earlier this year and I've been eyeing a set for myself ever since. 








Renew: Daily Retreats for Body, Spirit, and Mind  Yes, this one is mine- but I really do love it and I think it would make a wonderful gift! This retreat offers daily themes that repeat over 20 modules: inspire, rejuvenate, create, connect, and Sabbath. A private class website, printable/downloadable files, and beautiful full-color, 90-page book are all included.  Projects, recipes, essays, devotionals, and prayers will be woven throughout and offered in a way that invites a restful pick and choose approach. 

**Special pricing now through the end of November**

50% off the regular price!



Renewed, by Scents of the Spirit.  I keep getting asked about this perfume because it is so pretty!  It's a soft vanilla orchid, lemon and cashmere musk scent.  You can ask for free samples in the mail.  They also have a scent called Hopeful, as well as candles and lotions.  


Fill the air of your home with beautiful scented oils (vanilla is my favorite).  I love having these in multiple rooms.  I've given these as gifts to several people and they always seem appreciated.  











UGG Ansley Moccasins

These are my favorite slippers of all time!  Seriously.  These are the walking on clouds. The fleece fur on the inside keeps my feels so good to sink my feet into. The soles are durable enough to wear outside if you forget to change into regular shoes before you leave the house (something I've done more than a few times). 











Leila Love Macarons

Who wouldn't want to get this beautiful box of macarons? I always feel like a princess when someone brings me macarons. These ones are delicious and rich. Love!








Lash Boost by Rodan and Fields

Full disclosure, I'm a consultant for R +F- and I had a hard time picking just one product to include on this list. If you've ever thought about getting lash extensions, why not consider this instead.  You will have the look of lash extensions but they will be your own lashes.  I have been amazed by my the results on my own lashes.  This stuff works! If you want to get 10% off and free shipping as a preferred customer, I can help you with that! 


I love the elegant minimalistic look of this planter.  This stylish piece would look great with a variety of decor. 









The Message Canvas Bible: Coloring and Journaling the Story of God

I love this Bible!  I've been using it for most of this year and I really appreciate the wide open margins and the pretty illustrations that I can color in.  It's a beautiful book and the Message paraphrase is one that I'm really enjoying.
