The holiday season is approaching us quickly, meaning that it is also the season of giving to those we love. Our friends and family give up their time to open up their homes to celebrate one of the most wonderful times of the year and the best thing to say thank you is a housewarming gift. These items not only will be a fan favorite at a Secret Santa party, but also are extremely affordable, especially if you happen to be attending multiple gatherings. The best gift is to make someone else's day with a personal handpicked gift and here are some of the best gifts to do so:

1. Capri Blue candle

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.
