Yesterday, my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas and my response was…I just want to be together and go on a trip as a family when you are home from deployment! Typically my response is experiences over gifts, but we did decide to each get something for each other because I LOVE opening presents! Mostly I think we are both excited this year because it is Remington’s first Christmas!
This year I am focusing on gifts that truly impact and keep on giving…not just to the recipient but also to the artisan creating them as well as impact your health in a positive way!
So this gift guide is short and sweet, but these gifts are items you will cherish for years to come! This year I want to encourage you not to buy just for the sake of buying something and checking a box…but going a bit beyond to gift with intention!
