It is that time of year to celebrate, spend quality time with loved ones, cook amazing meals together, and at some point it usually involves a thoughtful gift or two. I must say that holidays have gotten, to some extent, overly materialistic. Not that I don’t buy presents, but it’s that so much focus has been put on presents…and LOTS of them! It’s nice to hold onto the true spirit of the holidays and share that celebration with your friends and family. All that being said, it feels good to give someone you love something special that you know they could use and will really enjoy.
We wanted to put a few items together that may help give you great gift ideas for all the sweet people in your life.
Ecojarz stainless steel small mouth mason jar lid with stainless steel straw and cleaning brush. These are awesome gift ideas – perfect for on-the-go drinks, or fresh-juiced produce. You can feel good not using any plastic materials and know that the taste of whatever you are drinking isn’t going to taste like the bottle you are drinking it out of. Click HERE to view. HERE are some Ball canning jars to go with them. These canning jars are perfect to package a gift in too…i.e. bath salts, dry baking goods, DIY manicure kit…this list could go on forever.
Green Pastures fermented cod liver oil… you need to make sure that you are getting this for the right person who will appreciate it, ha! Click HERE to view.

The best gift you can give is a “gift of time” as my Aunt Nancy puts it. I love that thought and it is so perfectly true. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family you love them, make the time to spend with them, and enjoy each others company…that’s what life is about.
Happy holiday planning everyone!
