Christmas Gifting Ideas

I love giving gifts and I love receiving them! (I mean, who doesn't?) But I especially love, whether I am on the giving or receiving end, when a gift is very thought-out, complimenting a person's personality and tastes. That makes gift-giving (and gift-receiving) extra extra special. Whether it be my husband's Christmas gift to me last year (with a trip to Paris and Amsterdam), my best friend giving me a book with loads of pictures and captions in it from memories we've shared through the years, a maidenhair fern that is hard to come by gifted me by another plant-lover friend, or homemade cross-stitch linen napkins from a long-distance friend, it doesn't have to be extravagant to be special...just memorable. 

I've come up with a few gift-giving ideas to maybe help in your search for the perfect present this season. Here are a few of them..

*fresh beans from a local coffee shop for the java lover in your life* 
*vintage piece of clothing for that one-of-a-kind friend (my favorite is Shop Bonjourmoon)* 
*homemade gift created from a special talent of yours* 
*a day trip or experience (concert, play, or museum tickets)* 
*plant from a local nursery that a friend can enjoy all year long* 
*a custom address stamp for an old soul* 
*a beautiful calendar is always a good idea (this one & this one are lovely options)*
*create a photo book with all those pictures you've never got around to printing*

I hope I was able to give you just a few ideas when making your shopping lists! Thoughtfulness goes a long way when choosing a gift. Think twice before purchasing that gift card this year. 

Happy Gifting!
