Let's chat Christmas and giving gifts!
Below is a list of a few of my favorite things to give and to receive.
Many of these even ended up in my cart!
I can't wait to see what you love or even add to the list - if you've got a great idea and I didn't include it, comment below and let me know.
For the kiddos:
I recently found out about Jolabokaflod, one of the sweetest traditions I've heard of. Celebrated on Christmas Eve, the people of Iceland gift one another with new books.
Then they spend their day reading their books, drinking hot cocoa and ending the year immersed in their new literary treasures.
I must have some Icelandic blood in me because this sounds magical.
I highly recommend one of my family's favorite series, Green Ember, written in the tradition of C.S. Lewis and Tolkien.

Travel gear - update that quart sized baggie to this gorgeous Dopp kit, that is both essential and Fair Trade, handmade by Artisans around the world.
