High Vibe Holiday Gift Guide

High Vibe Holiday Gift Guide

Being a product-based business, I'm well aware of the focus placed on the Holidays and mass consumerism. I'm still feeling the whiplash of all the Black Friday emails delivered to my inbox this past week. What used to be a huge one-day shopping event has been stretched out to nearly a week-long marathon. (I chose to avoid Black Friday all together this year. I definitely don't relish at the idea of planning massive amounts of extra work for myself when I'm already overextended and really just needed a day to recharge. And besides, I strive to give ya'll great prices year-round, not just a few times a year.)
I would never want to be so caught up in selling, that I forgot that I'm here to serve and offer assistance. Yeah, at the end of the day I need to make a living too, but if I'm doing it at the expense of my people, then I'm not doing what I'm here for. 
So I wanted to create a High Vibe Gift Guide for ya'll in case anyone needs some #giftspo for some amazing intentional and high vibe gifts from amazing heart-centred businesses that are near and dear to my heart.

Valentines Gift Guide

Valentines Gift Guide

It makes me pretty sad when I think about all the "stuff" we buy, for ourselves and for others as gifts that just end up in the landfills. We need to kinder to our Mother Earth and consume less stuff. I personally love to gift handmade (surprise, surprise) but as a busy one-woman show, I totally get that DIY'ing isn't always possible. Not to mention all the times your beloved project doesn't work out as planned and then you're out even more time and money when you have to re-create it, or throw in the towel and go purchase something instead.

So I wanted to put together a little gift guide for you guys in case you're sick of the whole heart-shaped box of chocolate, roses, and a coupon for a sexy massage type of thing. 

 Here are my top 6 ideas for not so run of the mill Valentines Gifts:..
