These fun items I found all online.
Bkr bottle: I want to drink water from this glass bottle all day long. I know my water consumption would increase with this bottle by my side.
Joules boots are adorable and they support bee life. We eat a lot of honey and have a huge respect for bees at our house and I think it's my purpose in life to sport these rain boots to spread the love.
3. I love these Clark boots. I have a cute gray pair that are quite similar but not as sturdy but I know I would wear these a ton in the fall and winter. I had a pair from Bass for years and years and the sole finely fell off. It's probably weird that I have two pairs of boots here. Excessive boot envy. What I really need is a warm long black coat but I cannot find one that I like or that is a reasonable price. I found one this year from Kenneth Cole; I like the style but it isn't very warm.
4. This dress from Anthropologie. Perfect for school or a night out. I have a perfect pair of black boots to wear with it. My ankles would be covered. It's cold here. If I wore wooly cream tights I could wear the above gift with this dress.
Now enough about me as the season really is about giving to others to be part of the true joy of Christmas. Here are some of my ideas of fantastic gifts for others:
3. Heifer International: We love Heifer and we're lucky to be able to tour their space in Little Rock, AR before we moved North again. We have a penchant for the bees but we've often purchased other animal gifts through this organization.
Please give generously. Skip one Christmas gift for yourself and ask for donations to a local charity this year. Find ways to give back. In the land of plenty most of us can afford a little extra holiday giving.
