Holiday Gift Guide 2022

December 11, 2022

The holiday season is here! I feel like it came a bit too early and I’m embracing the Netflix movies and spiked vegan eggnog. Also it’s a wonderful time for us to slow down, reflect, manifest and spend time with loved ones.

Christmas will be very low key this year and I’m spending a week with my dad in Sedona to begin 2023. That doesn’t mean gifting is on top of mind. I’ve curated a unique and fashion forward gift guide to shop for beauty addicts, her, him, foodies and fitness/wellness lovers. The best part there is someone for everyone on your list and will make them feel extra special. Also, They won’t break the bank. Enjoy and let me know what you’re loving below!
