Another year has gone by, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like the holidays literally came out of nowhere. Don’t get me wrong; I absolutely love the holidays. Put me in front in front of a cheesy Christmas movie in holiday pajamas with a glass of mulled wine, a cinnamon candle burning in the room, and I’m in heaven.
The holidays are such a joyous time to slow down, participate in self-care activities, and celebrate the season with loved ones. It’s also the time that we fill up our online shopping carts with gifts for our families, significant others, and BFFs (or maybe you’re one of the brave souls who shops at the mall to snag those extra, awesome deals).
Sometimes the pressure of shopping can add stress or anxiety to the merry season, so I thought I’d take that pressure off you by creating the ultimate holiday gift guide. I scoured the internet to find the best gifts for everyone on your list. This year, give the gift of self-care. You’re welcome.
