This year my heart has been especially heavy with how many people are suffering in this world. I’ve been brainstorming ways that little ol’ me can help, to contribute to something larger than myself. My family has decided to give away gifts to children in need instead of giving to each other this Christmas, because who really needs another sweater. We’re all in this together.
With that said, I wanted to share some links in case you’re looking for some unique gift ideas.
My friend Vicent is an artist and has put his art onto clothing in his new project La Loba Kids. We have one of his prints hanging in Wylie’s room.
There are a plethora of incredible organizations. Unicef is one that I give to as well as Kiva.
Handmade La Conner face scrub is amazing.
Friends John and Heather make adorable, tiny pottery.
Someone gave me this as a gift recently and they were the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had. Hands down.
We have several prints from Frida in our apartment and her Have a Little Pun book is witty and charming.
Corrie has been making some beautiful, moody, art the past couple years.
My mom turned 60 this year and we gifted her a family photo session with all 7 of us. She was over the moon happy and said it was the best present we could have given. Give the gift that keeps on giving by booking a family session with a photographer.
Happy Thanksgiving and please be safe this week.
