Simone's Holiday Gift Guide

As the holidays rapidly approach, that old familiar feeling of anxiety and overwhelm is starting to creep its way back in. Instead of letting the feeling of panic take over, I have decided to confront this gift-giving season head on. I am facing my fears and starting my holiday lists early.

Here are some items from my personal holiday gift lists. Have you tried any of these products yourself? Do you have other gift suggestions to add? If so, I would love to hear from you.

Together, we may be able to get through the 2019 holiday season…
xo,
Simone
