Ahh the holidays.
It doesn’t have to be stressful and it doesn’t have to be expensive.
It can be as simple as you make it.
In my family, I have some members who prefer to NOT give or receive gifts, so we get creative and give experiences or do charitable donations.
Never the less, I love the holiday season, so here in my first annual Holiday Gift Guide!

TWO: Food or perishables
In my family, consumables are a wonderful gift ideas because they don’t leave clutter behind. If your family is just as big of foodies and chocoholics as my family is, here are a few ideas that you will love:
Brodo – the best bone broth I’ve tried! My favorite is the hearth blend.
VinoBox sends you the perfect flight of wines to taste. Monthly membership starting at one month. Perfect for single and wine connoisseur friends.
SMYLE foods is just ramping up their business delivers gluten free, grain free, sugar free, dairy free, soy free delicious food and pastries. I ordered their ginger bread at Thanksgivng and it was DIVINE.
Donation in the name of someone to a charity that is meaningful to either party. Choose a charity that you know your loved one is interested in or search for new ones with creative aspects – for example, Heifer is a company where you can give the gift of an animal that will feed a family in a foreign county.
FOUR: Give an experience
Experiences are also very popular gift ideas, and let’s be honest: they are endless opportunities to surprise someone with an experience. For example, cookie making or preparing a big batch of soup for their freezer, planning a holiday outing or creating a photo book from iPhoto.
Give the gift of Style
My Style Flash is the perfect gift for yourself or anyone else you know in need of help with her style or closet. (please not that I only work with women globally and in NYC)
