    Hi Gals,

    So you've been searching for thoughtful easy holiday gift ideas for 2020, we got you. Holiday gifts don't have to be difficult, follow this formula for a sincerely thoughtful, curated gift sets ideas for anyone. 

     

    Step #1

    The presentation. Think about how you want to present your gift. Visuals show that you put effort and that you're thoughtful. It doesn't need to be expensive, there's lot's of ways to be sustainable by using newspaper and getting artsy. You can also use a cute kitchen basket, metal wire storage box - something that can be re-used to present your gift.

     

    Step #2

    Include something that smells nice or test yummy. I like to hit the most of the senses when gifting. There's something about smelling or tasting something that reminded you of something warm and positive. That's what I want my gifts to feel like. A custom candle, a DIY perfume making kit, or a cookie dough set is super sweet.

     

    Step # 3

    Include something that spoils them. We love crystals (positive energy) and jewelry of course! Yes we're partial, because we believe jewelry is a women's everyday armor. So go ahead, treat your special someone. We have seen lot's of matching sets being given (mother daughters or matching friend sets). Sometimes that special someone will put themselves before others and it's always nice to remind them they they are appreciated with something to wear every day. We love when you find meaning within our different pieces, it's empowering and magical. This one and this one are some of our most popular to include in gift sets.

     

    Step #4

    Include something that is helpful or something alive. Okay that sounded weird, hear me out. We love plants (air plants are so cute) and herbs. How about a tool that will help. A kitchen tool is always appreciated or a gardening set. What about seeds from a place or memory to grow? We also think mini milk frother is pretty handy.

     

    Step #5

    I thoughtful note that ties it all together. There's something about explaining why you picked the things that you did, it shows you took the time and that you care. A thoughtful story about why you picked the items in the gift sets is also helpful, such as a family traditional recipe. 

     

    I like to call these care package gifts that are good anytime of the year for many types of occasions, because they were curated from the heart. Examples of gift sets that meet these steps are the following.

    • Cozy gift sets that involve a custom or special cookie recipe, with a note on why you picked it, with baking tools, matching necklaces for mom and daughter. What a lovely experience don't you think?
    • Hostessing gift set that involves compound butters or custom olive oils, with a serving set, a note with how to use it, a herb plant, and bracelet to brighten their day.

    Do you have any other ideas? Would love for you to share! I hope these tips help you create some moments of appreciation for your loved ones.
