So we all survived Thanksgiving, right? Now the stress of the holidays is upon us. Hundreds of emails flood your inbox with deals here & there but the goal is to buy the best gifts, at the best price, without overspending or over-gifting. That always seems to be my problem! So today I saw 30 days till Christmas (insert panic now).
I polled my Instagram followers on my story today and 100% want gift guides. So I jumped in this morning and these are the categories I’ll be sharing this week (big goal) & possibly into next weekend::
~Vegan beauty gifts (with stocking stuffers ideas).
~host or hostess.
Each gift guide will range in price from around $10 on up to more extravagant levels and will have clickable links for easy shopping. Let’s get this started…
|1.|My favorite kitchen tool ever the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Fear not the days of the old scary pressure cookers. This modern day marvel cooks dinner in mere minutes and is the biggest lifesaver in my kitchen. |2.| This Himalayan All Natural Crystal Salt Cooking Tile (12″ X 8″ X 2″) is essential for grilling. It imparts flavor to your tofu, veggies or whatever you’re grilling (plus works for carnivores, vegetarians or vegans). Great gift idea that most people don’t buy for themselves. |3.| This Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking cookbook has been my staple for so long. It has the best vegan recipes with so many gf options. It’s my go-to each and ever week. Perfect gift idea for someone trying to go vegan or someone who already is looking for some wonderful new recipe ideas. Dana is the best! |4.|Veggie Spiralizer is the one question I get every single time I post a zucchini noodle pasta dish. So versatile, easy to use and clean up. Great gift idea. |5.| ALL Organic Cotton Nut Milk Bag is essential for anyone who wants to make their own nut-based milk. Great stocking stuffer idea and a gift idea for under $10 is perfect. |6.|Coconut Bowl with Wooden Spoon S/2 these sweet little coconut bowls have taken over social media. I love that we can use the hard outer shell of coconuts for an eco-friendly gift idea. Perfect for your smoothie bowls! Great for both men and women. |7.|Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix Pack of 2 – Lion’s Mane and Chaga & Cordyceps and Chaga. These coffees and hot cacao mixes have taken the health market by storm. Mushrooms are the latest and greatest health craze and I’m all on board. Perfect stocking stuffer, hostess gift or treat for a small gift idea. They come in various sizes/combinations. These are on my list for gifts I’m giving. |8.| This Marble Swivel Top Dual Salt box is perfect for the foodie on your list. So pretty it will fit on the counter for easy access. |9.| My love…Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron 9-Quart Round French (Dutch) Oven. I received my first Le Creuset Dutch oven 21 years ago for a wedding gift. I use this pot daily for every dish I make. Perfect for soups, stews or braising. Well worth the investment.
I hope this list gave you some ideas to help with your holiday gift giving list. Stay tuned for my next gift guide for the men in your life.
