Do you have a person in your life who loves anything that is technologically focused and makes their life easier? These items get a little pricier, but they will make your tech lovers day! I’ve even included virtual reality goggles, which will blow their mind.

Pet Lover

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know I am a dog lover and have a little Maltese named Mick.  Sorry cat owners I definitely skewed this toward dogs because it was top of mind! I must confess that my dog uses a cat bed for traveling in the car 🙂 He’s only 4.8 lbs…

Pamper Her

Do you know someone like this in your life? Super-woman: mom, career woman, wife, friend, daughter, etc.  She needs help calming her mind and body! Or maybe you are looking for a unique gift for your girlfriends? 

Pampering is always a great option and will really show you care!


Bath time or nap time things that feel luxurious, smell delicious, and drown out the crazy of the day are necessary for relaxing and de-stressing.

Looking for adventure yourself or know someone who plans their next trip before their current one ends? Or maybe you have a business road warrior who needs a little help making travel a little easier?


Keeping comfortable, entertained, capturing memories, and hauling all that stuff is critical to staying calm and grounded when traveling. Plus airplane air is so drying, so I linked a special facial oil to re-hydrate dry skin! I wish I had this after my long flights to and from China…

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year 😉 Check out my new Christmas mantel for decorating inspiration at this magical time.
