I have talked a lot this past year about the importance of being life-giving to yourself and to others. Life can be hard enough on its own; being life-giving means making the small choices to ensure you aren’t making it any harder on yourself or those around you. It means being positive, nourishing, and supportive, and making sure that with every action you take, you aren’t being a drain to yourself or to others. In the all-seeing eye of decision-making, there are far better options than taking from anyone’s life by causing them stress, worry, panic, concern, or insecurity. I have put together options to be life-giving to those you love this season in every department of this year’s holiday gift guide. Giving releases really positive vibes from deep within us. Not only does it bring joy to our loved ones, but it makes us all healthier and happier!

This may look like a strange gift but my skin smells so fresh and feels so soft because of this llama!!! I am totally obsessed with these.
Ok I am clearly a fan of skin scrubbing and this is hands down my favorite.
I have been a fan of this incredible woman for many years. I have been gifted her special pieces many times and I cherish each of them. I couldn’t have been more excited than when she launched her clothing line with Barneys. This was totally made for me! I have always loved little ethereal throwback pieces and Jen really captured that flirty feminine yet down to earth vibe. I think any woman would love one of these!

This is in my gift guide every year. Scent is very powerful. It can connect and center us. I don’t get centered from chemicals so I am truly grateful for Tata Harper and all she had done to bring the pure nature of beauty forward. Anyone that knows me knows that I wear the irritability roller everyday throughout the day and have for years.
STAR WARS, THE BLUEPRINTS
Santa brought My son Sam this book a few Holidays back and it’s safe to say it’s now more important than ever to dive into the Blue Prints of this universe that is clearly not going anywhere.
So, I have this pal Paige. Paige is a giver. Paige is cool. Paige has killer style. Paige is kind. On every day, rain or shine, Paige is sunshine. I have known Paige as a client and friend for five years. She is one of those people that can literally feel other people’s feelings, who wants to bring everyone nothing but consistent, gentle reminders that they are loved and appreciated by her. We all get challenges thrown at us in life. When I was thrown a particularly difficult one out of nowhere, I received a gift from Paige that gave me strength every day. She gifted me one of Tracee Nichols’ epic courage necklaces. I wear it every day. Yes, I love the necklace, but what I love even more is the person who gave it to me, and how she knew how much life it would give me in ways far more powerful than the material aspect of a piece of jewelry.
Paige consistently makes me smile and feel loved. She has given my little Penny and me the coolest gifts. She is the owner and agent at Fox Creative, dishing out campaigns for the likes of HBO, Fiat, FX, and the Four Seasons, to name a few, so it does help that she has a trained eye. Paige is sharing her cool with us to give you some killer ideas for gifts you may never have known to look for and where to find them. Thank you Paige, you rock my world!
