2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Ho Ho Ho Merry.... Wait. Please tell me how it's already DECEMBER!!!! 

Happy Holidays babes! I don't know about you but from Thanksgiving to New Years is hands down my favorite time of the entire year. For Christmas gifts this year I have decided to only give handmade gifts or gifts that I've bought from local vendors. I have tons of great gift ideas that will cover everyone on your list. 

Give your loved ones a pampering session, we all deserve it every now and then! Glow has such a wide variety of different treatments and products, everyone could find the perfect fit for them. We also just started offering a Circadia Skin Care Cocoa Enzyme facial with a Marshmallow Whip Moisture Mask. A hot chocolate facial?! That just sounds heavenly!!!

Photographs are such a treasured and valuable thing to me. How wonderful would it be to capture special moments with those closest to you and be able to hold on to those memories forever?! 

Kaitlyn also sells gorgeous prints of photos she's taken over the years that would look gorgeous in anyones home. 

3. Clothing from Ittikid!

Everyone has little ones to shop for this holiday season! I have just the place for all of your kids clothing needs!! 

"Ittikid is a family run online shop, selling organic, unisex, & eco-friendly children's clothing from Scandinavia.  We carefully select brands that design and make durable and high quality clothing that will last and last. Each brand that we carry was founded by parents, and the clothing made by adults with the highest fair labor standards and humane working conditions. I run the company from home, in between nap time and diaper changes! My Swedish hubby, Calle, and I are always on the look out for high quality Scandinavian brands that encourage kids to be kids, to play and get dirty, and to feel comfortable in their bodies."

I stumbled across Kaylee's Instagram randomly one day over the summer and have been obsessed with her creations ever since. Kaylee is from Northfield, MA and started Flower & Fern just a couple months ago. Everything is handcrafted with lots of love, and she is an absolute pleasure to work with! 

Going to the Buxton Christmas Barn has quite possibly become my favorite holiday activity. All of the scarves so unique and cozy with the cutest leather cuff to accessorize with. Grab your girlfriends, some hot cocoa (and peppermint schnapps), and make a day out of it! Your holiday season will not be the same! 

 My friend Danielle is quite possibly the most talented human being I've ever met. Every single piece of artwork, pottery, or jewelry she makes takes my breath away. These mugs would be the perfect gift for any avid coffee drinkers in your family.

Speaking of coffee... If you haven't noticed yet I'm quite possibly addicted to SFCR... Grab your loved ones a gift card, or bag of freshly ground coffee. They'll thank you later! 

I've said it time and time again, Burning Heart has changed my life in so many ways. Give the gift of self love, exercise, and sanity this Christmas with a Burning Heart class card or gift certificate!

A gift card/certificate from Honey and Wine would be such a wonderful gift for the fashion lovers on your holiday shopping list this year! Honey and Wine has such a unique and wide variety of clothing and accessories to chose from. Every piece you pick up is so different and would make a great addition to anyones wardrobe. 

With the new year quickly approaching these affirmation cards would be such a thoughtful gift for anybody trying to make a big life change, or just wanting to become a happier and healthier version of themselves. I pre-ordered my deck already and cannot wait for them to arrive in the mail! 

With the holidays quickly approaching this year I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year! Thank you so much for reading!

Love always,
