A few of my favorite things — 2018 gift guide

Just call me Mrs. Claus!

The 2018 Holiday Gift Guides have officially launched and I thought I’d add one of my own.

I’m calling it “A Few of My Favorite Things” because it features, well, a few of my favorite things. I tend to lean toward items with purpose and passion. I like gifts made from the heart—for the heart. And, of course, I like them to be pretty! 

Use this guide to help you pick out something special for someone special in your life!
