Don't know what you want or what to give this holiday? Here are a few ideas that won't break your wallet. Any excuse to go shopping is good enough for me- I KNOW, I have a slight (okay, major) problem. But there is something special about shopping for others that makes it a completely different experience, it's a wonderful feeling. So here's a few gifts you will want to give- and receive- this holiday that will surely bring a smile to someone's face!

For Her

Girls, we are pretty easy to shop for. Give us a candle or a cute new mug and we will cry of happiness. But in case you REALLY aren't sure, here you go!

1. Pom-Pom Gifting Soap, Anthropologie ($9.00 each)

Every girl adores adorably-wrapped soap. Why? Who knows, but we LOVE IT.


2. Love, Style, Life Book, Anthropologie ($30.00)

We all enjoy a beautiful and inspiring new coffee table read now and then, but for some reason, we hate buying them ourselves. That's why they make such wonderful gifts!


3. Limited Edition Serena Applique Bra, Urban Outfitters ($39.00)

How pretty is this bra? If you love it as much as I do, your girls are going to love it even more!


4. Letters in Lights Earring Set, Anthropologie ($48.00)

A small, yet sparkly (and perfect) gift!


5. 10 Piece Brush Set, Urban Outfitters ($20.00)

Oooooh, pretty new makeup brushes. Yes, please!


For Him

Guys are SO HARD to shop for. Trust me, I LOVE shopping but when it comes time to buying gifts for my boyfriend, I freak out. He is sooooo picky. But I can assure you- even the pickiest guy will enjoy all of these toys!

1. The Unofficial Guide to Pokemon Go, Urban Outfitters ($13.95)

For the gamers out there. Let's face it, which guy do you know DOESN'T play Pokémon Go? Things we might never understand... oh well. Whoever you get this for will love it!


2. Google Home, Google.com ($129.00)

This thing is so cool. My boyfriend never uses the web to search for things anymore, he only uses Siri. This is perfect for any guy like that. Google Home will answer any of your questions and even do things for you, such as adjust your thermostat or turn off your lights! It's guaranteed to be a big hit!


3. Homemade Gin Kit, Anthropologie ($49.00)

Girls and candles are like guys and bartending. They all have this dream. Any guys who love drinking and a little bit of science will love this kit!



4. Cluse Full Black Marble, Cluse (E159)

Here's for the classy guy in desperate need of a watch. He's going to love the all black look.


5. Kelvin Tool 36, Amazon ($46.50)

Another SUPER COOL tool. Or should I say 36 tools? Yep, this baby has 36 tools ALL IN ONE. From a measuring tape to a screwdriver, this Kelvin tool has it all!

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.

Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.

Ty
