Whilst we are talking Christmas wishes – have you helped me with my #Just1Wish message? Head here for all the details.
Oh boy, oh boy. I’m a sucker for Christmas. It’s like I haven’t actually ever moved passed 1983. I can’t even say I could forgo the hype. I love it. I love the excitement, I love the food, I love the energy, I even love Christmas Carols on repeat. I LOVE CHRISTMAS. It may also come from the love of being social, taking a drive to see the Christmas lights on a random week night and staying up late on a school night. I’ll own it – these very things make me happy. Christmas is a time of giving. We’ve scaled it back this year A LOT. For one, we physically have no room to fit another squeaky toy into our tiny abode. Secondly, we don’t actually need anything and if I step on another squeaky toy, I’m going to lose my cool and some. Where we’ve previously given gifts to loved ones, we’ve had the kids make gifts instead. Needless to say, the kids will still receive a truck load gifts no doubt – but it’s all about simplicity. Giving can still be simple! So with this in mind, I thought I’d share my 5 favourite things to give this season – to hopefully help your Christmas be a little sweeter and to help get me even more excited!
Here we go.
1. Well & Good
Ok this goes without saying. It’s more than a shameless plug. It’s because I wholeheartedly want women to understand their bodies better. It’s the reason the book was created. I want them to know what’s going on, let go of the ‘fear of the unknown’ and understand health is a work of art. So I’m offering this Christmas to those who purchase (and you can now purchase via this site – here), a personally signed copy. Buying as a gift? No sweat – I’ll sign it for the receiver so long as your order is in by EOB this Friday (19th Dec).
2. THIS Roundie from The Beach People
Oh my. This is literally ALL I want for Christmas. If I get one, you’ll know where to find me all summer long. I’ll be sitting on this. At the beach with a do not disturb sign hanging around my neck.
3. Lemon Canary Candles
Ok, I fibbed. I also want an endless supply of Lemon Canary candles for Christmas. I can’t even believe how lucky I am to have found this divine range. For more info head here. We’ve got a santa sack full of Lemon Canary Christmas scents here at The Pagoda Tree too (think Pine Needle and Sliver Birch OR Plum Pudding and Pomander!)
4. Give a chook!
I love this concept! Buy the gift of giving to others. You might like to check out these suggestions – you can buy a goat or a chook for a family living in poverty. Skip over to the oxfam site.
5. Melissa Ambrosini’s video series
My friend, the beautiful Melissa Ambrosini has created an amazing resource – her Video Training Series! What a gorgeous gift to give loved ones (or perhaps a special treat from your partner), to help you step up to living the life you LOVE (and deserve). I often find the icing on the cake to truly overcoming health conditions is integrating our own mindset. Owning that we are healthy and thriving is the key to long term wellness – because our mind isn’t ever separate from our physical body. I love what Mel has created – I’m even more excited to share it with you in time for Christmas (and bring in 2015 with a BANG!) Click on the image above to check it all out.
