Happy December 1! The official holiday shopping season is here!! I am so excited to share my "Holiday Gift Guide" with you.
I'm featuring some of my favorite shops and products. I know the special lady in your life will love any of these items ... or maybe you can just add a few things to your own wish list :)
First up is a new company I recently discovered. Lindsay, the owner, is such an inspiration and I know you'll love her hand crafted products.
HandMade Heat Therapy Packs
Lindsay's Etsy shop just opened and she is offering free shipping within the United States. To shop her amazing products, click here.HandMade Heat therapy packs are hand crafted and 100% natural. A portion of proceeds allows us to give beautiful, minimalist and effective heat therapy packs to women with chronic pain through our donation program; we have BIG hearts for the 1 in 10 women who suffer with pain, infertility and financial burden from endometriosis. Your health is a priority so we use only cotton, vintage linen + grain in our packs...your body needs the very best in your healing journey .As a survivor of chronic illness, Lindsay understands the darkness of a life with pain. She says, "whether your season of pain is short or long, let's all support one another with kindness + empathy."You're about to get warm + encouraged.
Dandelions In December
Dandelions In December is about remembering.
Dandelions In December began because of a girl going through a very hard time. A time when things weren't going as planned....you know, things that weren't "supposed" to happen. Like dandelions that grow in December, sometimes things happen in our lives that are just out of the ordinary. Dandelions are supposed to grow in the spring and summer. Not in winter!
Each piece is made by me with the prayer and hope that the word, quote or verse speaks to the hurting heart and brings comfort and courage!
When I began making, I committed to giving back. So, a portion of the proceeds of each piece will go to The Seed Company - this company translates the Bible into languages that do not have any part of the Bible in their language.
I have many items from Sheila's beautiful store and each one is beautiful and well made. To check out Sheila's Etsy store, click here.
Another creative I would like to share with you is an amazing author, Hillary DeVisser.
I'm a Midwestern native in love with my neck of the woods in southern Illinois. Rolling hills, cornfields and a slower pace of living serve as the perfect backdrop for writing small-town, second chance romances.
Writing has always been my passion and escape and I'm thrilled to share the first three books in my Coal Country series. I envision the series as four stories: Fishing Hole (2015), Copper Creek (2017), Poets Pass (2018), and Eagle Mountain, my current work in progress.
I hope you love reading my books as much as I love writing them.
Pré de Provence
I first fell in love with French soap in Provence and love that Pré de Provence offers so many products "Made in France."
Nature casts a magical spell on this haven in southern France, nestled between sky-reaching mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. The skies shine blue, endless mineral-rich waters sparkle, and verdant meadows abound with fragrant treasures of lavender, wildflowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables. Just breathing the wonderful scents in the air brings peace and tranquility.
It is these fragrances we infused into our products so that you may experience this Magic of Provence. Indulge yourself in a full range of skin nourishing Bath and Body products created using the purest vegetable ingredients, rich Shea Butter, Organic Argan Oil, or even sun-cured Sea Salt.
We believe that experiencing natural beauty should be an everyday, affordable luxury. And every product should be as authentically French as Pré de Provence.
Below are of my favorite products from Pré de Provence for the holiday season:
Vivi Et Margot
In the words of Charlotte Reiss - Owner:
My inspiration came from our dream of someday buying and renovating a house in France as an escape for us and our daughters to get away from all of the "hustle and bustle"of our city life in Los Angeles. Eight years ago, we finally took the plunge, bought a 150 year old rural property and have been restoring it ever since. In that time, we have traveled back and forth countless times and our love for French life has grown as we have settled into our French village life.
Needless to say, during these travels we have stumbled across countless brocantes, textile shops, and various French markets. It seemed like every time we went to France we were bringing home more and more things every trip for ourselves, friends and family and thought to ourselves, why not make some things accessible to everyone? And with that Vivi et Margot opened online in 2015 to great success and has continue to grow. We now carry a full collection of French homewares, textiles, antiques and of course our popular market baskets.

I hope you found this "Holiday Gift Guide for Her" helpful. I had fun putting it together and hope you also enjoyed reading more about each product.
