I feel a little bit like those stores that deck their halls in red and green before Halloween (and Thanksgiving).
While it’s only mid October, I had the itch to share a few ideas for gifts you might give this holiday season. I hope you can forgive my eagerness.
Coming up with last year’s guide was so much fun and that list remains chock full of some of my favorites.
And the sentiment I shared last year remains true:
There are infinite ways to show our love and gratitude, with spending money on (or making something for) another as just one possibility. Giving and receiving gifts can be magical. It can be a way to express that we truly see someone or it can show our support for a business or artist we love. The right gift, for the right person, at the right time is wonderful.
This year I’m going to be sharing three lists, one for each month remaining in the year.
Here, to kick it off, are 14 treats that might bring a little joy to one of your someones…
