It’s beginning to look a lot like… well, you know!

The holidays may look different for many of us this year, but one thing doesn’t change: the need to find great gifts for friends and family! 

I’ve put together a few gift guides to share some ideas for all the special people in your life… starting with this one. Fabulous gifts that are cozy, comfortable, and promote well-being are ALWAYS appreciated! 

Here are a few of my favorite things!




GraceLaced by Ruth Chou Simons

Though a beautiful book, GraceLaced is about more than pretty florals and fanciful brushwork—it’s about flourishing. With carefully crafted intention, this beautiful volume of 32 seasonal devotions from artist and author Ruth Chou Simons encourages readers in any circumstance to become deeply rooted in God’s faithful promises. GraceLaced extends a soul-stirring invitation to draw close to God, while feeding your soul with beauty.

More than 800 individual pieces of art came together in the crafting of this book, including dozens of new, hand-painted Scripture vignettes that Ruth is known for. Who we are and who God is never changes, even though everything else rarely stays the same. Let this book point you to truth as you journey through the changing seasons of your heart.

Fur Cuff Reading Socks

Step into cold winter months with these knit socks lined with faux fur. Imagine coming home and slipping these on while curling up with a good book! Guess where these are sold? Barnes & Noble! So while you’re on the site, grab these along with a great new release for a gift sure to please. And browse around… these come in multiple colors, so get an extra pair for yourself!

Plush Sherpa Blanket

Look at this, friends! Fuzzy sherpa on one side, velvety soft fleece on the other. I have a vivid mental picture of curling up under this on a cold night. Who wouldn’t love it?!? Off to order one of these for myself… err, I mean, for my gift list. Okay, fine… both.

Earthley Christmas Cookie Set

Like natural products mixed with total luxury? Me too, and so will anyone on your list! Earthley products are completely natural so you can feel good about gifting them — or using them! Christmas Cookie is a limited time, seasonal scent that smells absolutely delectable!

Even better, if you’re new to Earthley, I can give you a code for 10% off your first order… so you can stock up with gift sets, stocking stuffers, and a few pampering items for yourself!

Now, because of its popularity, the set has already gone in and out of stock a couple times this season. If the above link is out or doesn’t work, here’s a general link for you to use, so you can explore other products! (I highly recommend the Vanilla Bean Body Butter!)

Milkhouse Candles Holiday Home Butter Jar

Everyone loves a soft candle glow with a delicious scent, right? Milkhouse Candles is a semi-local company for me, and their products stand apart. Holiday home is my favorite scent from them, but there are loads of good ones. 

These candles are made with soy wax infused with beeswax, and feature lead-free cotton wicks. I love that they’re more natural and have really authentic scent to them. Browse around the site and find a scent that speaks to you!

So, what do you think? Do any of these check a box off your list? Or have you just found a page full of stuff you want for yourself? Nothing wrong with that… I mean, you have to be cozy and comfy while shopping for everyone else’s gifts, right? Either way, everyone can find something perfect. Happy shopping!
