Happy Monday! I’m coming off of a total high after watching two of my friends get married in Palm Beach this past weekend. It was surreal how beautiful it was – and we had so much fun dressing up for a black tie event. It doesn’t happen often, so I rely heavily on Rent the Runway for these occasions! (this is the dress I wore – I loved it. It runs a little big. I got a 6 and ended up wearing the 4)
Now it’s all about preparing for our trip to Asia which we leave for this week. I’ve never been, and it actually hasn’t even sunk in that I’m fortunate enough to add this to my list of life experiences. I truly did not think that my life would look like this just a year ago. I was in such a different place, and while yes I was doing a bit of traveling, my mind-frame was just so wonky. I felt like I was living in a fog – living solely within society’s expectations rather than my own. Not only is life so much more freeing and fulfilling these days, but traveling to different countries and witnessing different cultures with a healthy, calm mind-frame makes all the difference. I appreciate each experience so much more. Stay tuned for updates on our trip, and be sure to follow along on Instagram where I’ll be sharing photos and posting on InstaStories often! :)
Okay, so on to the main event. The biggest post of the year which takes a lot of thought and consideration, so I hope you love what I’ve put together! I tried to keep it as simple as possible (the name of the game), and if you’ve already downloaded your FREE copy of the Mindful Shopping Holiday Guide then some of these items may look familiar. But the good news? I’ve added even more ideas to this post then what’s included in the guide. So let’s get started.
Holiday Gift Guides: For Her
Whether you’re purchasing for a woman in your life (girlfriend, wife, mom, sister, best friend, etc) or simply gaining ideas for yourself to pass along, I wanted to try my best to incorporate women of all walks of life within this gift guide. To do that, I thought it would be easiest to break them up into categories based on hobbies and lifestyle. Also, this post is a great place to visit for minimalist jewelry gift ideas!
For The Homebody
Holiday Gift Guides: For Him
A handful of categories to browse for the men in your life this holiday season. (Is it just me, or are guys generally difficult to buy for?!) Fear not. Just like the women, I’ve broken these ideas into categories so you’re bound to find something that fits the mold just right.
The Style Enthusiast
The Early Riser
Holiday Gift Guides: For the Littles
On to this cute gift guide. Putting together these guides for the little ones is SO fun. I basically just think to myself, “would Juno, River and Soren like this? Would I buy it for them?” (my niece and nephews) Also, I love the idea of being able to gift kiddos with items that are educational in some way, or supportive of their emotions. Hopefully this helps any of you who are stumped and just need a fresh dose of inspiration and ideas!
For The Little Ones
That’s it for this year’s gift guides. How it’s almost 2018 is beyond me, but it’s been one hell of a beautiful year. Stay tuned for a lot of fresh holiday content to come, including a different outlook on New Years resolutions and how to take good care of ourselves during this season. x
