Every year, Christmas sneaks up on me. You would think decorating in mid November with lights, holiday mugs, and a full blown tree in my house would remind me to start gift shopping. Spoiler: it doesn’t remind me. This year I made a pact with myself to give gifts with my entire heart behind the gesture. When a gift is done right — when it takes thought and the gesture is out of love — a memory is created in the parts of your brain that bring a cozy, warm, fuzzy feelings for years to come.
This year, I started my lists early for all the different people in my life. I decided to share my lists with you to inspire others to dive into the holiday spirit of giving, too. From the artistic visionary to the Holly Golightly in your life, you will have a more than perfect, thoughtful gift for everyone.
