I thought I would put together a list of items that I have found over the last year that I love and that could help you with your Christmas shopping for those hard to buy for people. This year I am really trying to be intentional with my shopping and try to find small businesses that I can purchase gifts from.   I think we all know; small businesses have struggled since 2020 and how amazing would it be to support these businesses during this holiday season? Here are 8 different companies and products that I have tried, tested, and love!

  1. Crystal Bracelets from Apartment 020- I love Etsy because it helps small businesses showcase their products. I have several bracelets from this company and have given a lot as gifts. They are great quality and very cute.
  1. Personalized Notebooks and Stationery- I love these Erin Condren Notebooks. I have given then to my leadership team and my assistant for Christmas the last two years. The notebooks are very cute and you can personalize them with their name on the cover.
  1. The Start Today Journal- If you follow me on Tik Tok or any social media platform you know I LOVE a gratitude practice. This journal is one I have done for about 3 years, you write 5 things you are grateful for every day BUT there is a whole dreams/goals exercise as well. I feel like this is the perfect gift for just about anyone! They are $19.99 but usually every year around Black Friday they go on sale for $9.99. I personally by 4 every year because they are for 90 days.
  1. Peanut Butter Wings from Chocolate Pizza- This might sound weird but don’t knock it till you try it, it’s a rippled potato chip that is covered in creamy peanut butter and then drenched in gourmet Swiss-style chocolate, they are nothing short of AMAZING!
  1. Shower Frosting! If you have never tried this type of soap, it’s a must! This is one of those gifts that really works for everyone, your boss, friend, neighbor, family. It’s like a whipped, exfoliating soap. I have asked Santa to make sure I get some of this in my stocking this year! Their soap by the slice is amazing too.

  1. Our Back Porch Candle Co- When we were in Colorado I found this candle called Colorado Blue Spruce and it is the best Christmas scent if you like the “tree” scent but they have so many great scents, check them out here
  1. Our one-time Joy Boxes- Of course I had to put our Joy Seeker and Meditation box on my list of great gift ideas! Each box has a book, an activity that goes with the book, an act of kindness, and self-care items, perfect for any woman in your life …. Boss, co-workers, neighbors, teachers, wife, daughters, sister, mother, or friend! The Joy Box – The Joy-Box Save 10% today using SHOPSMALL
  1. Smallwoods pictures- I am a huge fan of pictures that capture great memories. I have several of these framed canvas prints. I have also given many as gifts. The quality of these pictures is fantastic, and they usually have a discount code to use!
