Last Minute Gift Guide

So…how goes that gift shopping?

Me? I’m still waiting on Rho’s new Christmas pajamas. All the gifts I purchased are sitting in a drawer.

Even my wrapping paper is still in a box.

So I get it. I’m woefully behind on blogging, on holiday shopping, and in life in general. Today, I’m sharing some of our family’s favorite items and some things I’ve created myself to make the holidays (and life) a little bit better.

Bonus – everything on this list will get delivered by Christmas.

 The Best Gift Money Can Buy

starts at $1

With everything that’s going on in the world, I think that going giftless is the best thing you can do – for yourself, and for your loved ones. With everything going on in the world (ahem, Aleppo), asking for things can feel selfish.
Which is why gifting impact is the best gift you can give and receive this year.
And we make it easy via NO.GIFTS. Fill out the form, make the donation, and we’ll do the rest.
Give it a try, won’t you?

How To Pack: Travel Smart for Any Trip

I’m shameless. I know.
But I’m really, really, REALLY proud of my book. And I do think it makes a really fantastic gift.
If you pre-order the gift for a loved one (or yourself…or both), forward me the receipt and the name of the person you’re gifting and I’ll e-mail you a personalized printable to give for the holiday.
Plus, you’ll be entered to win some amazing, exclusive prizes over the next two months.
Order. E-mail me. And pack better.

And because nothing beats opening a wrapped gift, here are some of my and my family’s favorite items – available for delivery before Christmas.

All of these items are ones we’ve owned for months (if not years), and are frequently used and loved.

I hope your loved ones will enjoy them as much as we do.

Merry merry, everyone.

  • Okay, you convinced me to add the Hug book to Lawson’s stocking! You mentioned it somewhere else recently and I couldn’t pass it up this time. I always get the best ideas from you since Rho is a few months older than Lawson.

    We also donated to 5 organizations that are helping in Aleppo. It really does seem silly to be buying gifts when there’s so much bad in the world right now. It’s heartbreaking. Thanks for keeping it at the forefront.

      I think I mentioned HUG in my Mama Notes feature! Rho LOVES the book. When I come home and fling my arms out for a hug, he runs to grab the book and plops into my lap so I can read it to him. It basically makes my heart explode.
