Every year I’m surprised at how quickly November and December fly by. It’s the busiest time of year when I want to be the most intentional but, more often than not, I scramble last minute to find gifts for loved ones.
I’m already starting to brainstorm some gifts that would be perfect for this year and two of my favorite ideas have been watches and succulents. I love both so much for myself but they are also such easy and thoughtful gifts to buy for others. There’s something special about giving someone a timepiece, almost symbolic of the value you put on your time together. This will be a great gift for someone like my husband or my closest girl friends. I also love giving plants and succulents as gifts because they brighten up any space and they will be around for months, if not longer.
This holiday season there are some beautiful watch options by Fossil – metal styles with feminine faces like the one I’m wearing and also cool, vintage-looking leather strap watches. I live very close the the flower market in Downtown LA where you can find tons of shops that sell succulents but if you don’t live locally, Trader Joe’s is also a great option.
Let’s plan ahead on our holiday shopping and leave room to make some memories this year. Would love to hear any other thoughtful ideas you have for gifts – leave a comment below!
