What could be better than a gift that makes you feel right at home? Many of the things included in this guide are ones I wouldn’t think to buy myself when out shopping for myself. I received this Kate Spade ‘Escape the Ordinary’ journal as a wedding gift and absolutely love it. A personal goal of mine is to journal daily; by writing down my thoughts/experiences/frustrations helps increase growth and awareness. I’ve never been a big bath person, but I’ve found that the simple act of drawing a hot bath creates a serene and peaceful moment for myself. These bath salts from Herbivore Botanicals are nutrient rich and detoxifying…not to mention under $20!
A snuggly blanket, sleep mask, comfy pajama set and scented candle are all basic home necessities. I take my skin routine very seriously, especially during the winter. Not only does my skin take a beating from the high winds and blustery cold we get in Chicago, but my lips get very chapped. To battle this, I recommend exfoliating and applying Fresh Sugar Tinted Treatment – my favorite shade is nude.
Corey and I gifted ourselves the Bodum French Press and can’t recommend it enough. While a Keurig is convenient during the weekly grind, it’s nice to use the French Press to brew our own cup.
