I wish this could be like the Oprah Edition of the Holiday Gift Guide….but I just don’t have the means to buy you all one of everything. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t jump for joy, screaming, cheering in full excitement that today is the day, the day I release my 2015 Holiday List Guide (and yes some give-aways are coming!).
I know, I’m still in shock that it’s December so lets just all sit and let that soak in for a minute.
Feel better? Okay now lets get your Holiday Cheer on and check out these great gift ideas from my holiday gift guide 2015.
Lets start with the most important, those gifts that give. Yes, indeed these are the greatest ones of all and why I believe we should stand by and fully support those who stand by their mission and give back to a greater cause. Do I need to mention they are pretty, like good eye candy as well?
GIFTS THAT GIVE:
Wrist candy is up first with this Rose Gold Brown Leather Watch. Stylish and on a mission dedicated to redeeming time.
Need a new work bag, diaper bag or purse? Check out this Fashionable Crossbody Tote and with one purchase you help work to empower women who have overcome challenges ranging from prostitution to addiction to a simple lack of opportunity. Fashionable is ABLE to help these women find purpose in the work that they do.
This color is my fav but not that is in my closet. However, I think I could do it with these Mustard Diamond Flats from The Root Collective. They partner with makers in Guatemala helping to provide jobs, food and a family to many without.
Need beauty on the go? Check out this case which is a great place to stash health helping you to remember no matter where you are. The mission, to provide health education creating change with the next generation. I’m not even a big girly-girl but man this is handy.

You got to love the buy-one-get-one companies, especially when it means some fashionable new shades for you. This company of this beautiful products helps those in need get the vision coverage they need.
One of the most famous companies for one-for-one is not lacking in style and ambition. I’ve fallen head over heels in love with these wedges… and knowing my purchase helps another makes it that much more sweeter.
Stacked necklaces are my jam. These beauties not only are good looking they help provide college tuition money for inner city youth. They’ve already given away 40 scholarships!
These bags though! They are on a mission to make life better for women with every bag sold. They do this by employing women who have overcome barriers.
Blanket scarfs and infinity scarfs, both beautiful and functional. The in-trend of the season and giving back all at the same time.
Something different, fun and unique, this ribbon sandal package makes me want them just for the challenge of seeing how many different styles you can create.
Love, love, love these kids hats and better yet the company is on a mission to empower people to rise above poverty. Plus your gift is signed by its maker.
Bamboo Lid Mason Jars from the Mason Bar Company choosing to give back a portion of their profits to help the community.
The best smelling candles around. The makers at Links of Hearts are on a mission to raise awareness for depression and choose to spread hope.
I’m a sucker for these wooden signs. Such a statement in your home. Not to mention a portion of the proceeds goes to the Battle for a Cure Foundation working to enrich the lives of children fighting cancer by offering various outreach programs to them.
These boots, because statement rain boots are the best and even better when the company chooses to help overcome poverty by education and giving of boots to those in need.
I’m pretty certain if I owned this I would wear it everyday. One for the message and two because I love myself a good ol’ sweatshirt. Plus, it’s another company with a mission. Heart, heart, heart.
How about apparel that reminds you how great you really are? Yep we all have a purpose a mission and it starts with recognizing what’s within you. Check out these shirts that could be used as a daily reminder.
JUST BECAUSE GIFTS:
I’m ever so slowly adding these knives to my kitchen collection. Sturdy, high quality and a forever guarantee. The perfect gift that keeps on giving.
My newest obsession is brewing loose leaf tea. This makes it so easy and so delicious, whether it is warm or hot. Plus their teas are divine.
This has been on my gift wish list every year. The best insulated container for warm beverages that is pretty much stuck to me all winter long.
This is the best looking kind of fitness I’ve ever seen. I mean I’m already a fan but wow, so jealous of this cover.
Anything from this company gives me all the warm fuzzies. Memories captured and printed are forever memories.
Sweater Leggings, need I say anything else? Why would you wear anything but sweater leggings. It sounds like a little slice of Heaven on Earth.
Obviously I have a thing for beautifully written words to hang around the house as daily reminders. These prints are beautiful and something that could be cherished for years to come.
I’m such a sucker for tunics. I just can’t help it, they become the perfect excuse for leggings and the greatest verge of classy comfort.
Speaking of leggings, I can’t get enough of these leggings. They are my daily go-to and worn by far more than any other pant I own. Heart-eye emojis all the way around.
Cast Iron, its is my go-to pan in the kitchen. Perfect flavoring, little clean-up and use on the stove and in the oven. Perfect for quick, one-pan dinners.
I’m just a little bit obsessed with gold right now and when you combine that with my flatware collection I would say these are the perfect combination. Definitely something to be handed down later in life.
This makes drinking water convenient, fashionable and healthy. I’d say this company knows how to do glass.
By far my number one used kitchen appliance for the last five years. It comes at a higher price point but one that is worth it for years to come.
While it may seem strange, these salt lamps really have some great health benefits. Best known for helping to alleviate allergies, any type of air purifier is a bonus. I’d say it is a fair Christmas present?

Subscription box to Hatchery the monthly subscription box that sends you delicious small-batch ingredients and condiments allowing you to taste test some of the best. Mix up your palate such a fun and unique gift.
