I am so excited to share this gift guide with you. For several years, I have dreamed of offering a gift guide on The Mom Creative because I LOVE giving gifts so much. It is definitely better to give than to receive.
2015 seemed like the perfect year to finally offer a guide because of my books The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You and My Fringe Hours: Discovering a More Creative and Fulfilled Life. The heart of both books is that women must make time to steward their passions and take care of themselves.
Each gift idea in the guide was carefully curated with a fringe hours mindset. I asked myself, what are gifts will foster creativity, passion and joy from the recipient? The items I found do just that.
The gifts are broken down by category for ease of shopping. From the book lover to the woman who needs encouragement, a wide-variety of products are available. You’ll also find a few coupon codes at the back of the book, which will help you save more money while you shop. (I love a good coupon!)
If you have your shopping done, you’ll still want to view it to read my 6 tips for making time for you this holiday season (we all need this advice!). This guide took more than 20 hours to put together and I would be SO grateful if you would take a few minutes to check it out. Special thanks to my friend Chris who helped me get it designed.
This gift guide is in a magazine style format, which makes it beautiful and fun to experience. If you have never used issuu before, here’s how it works.
- The gift guide is best viewed by clicking to open in a new window and then click again to open full size.
- When you hover over an image, a little link image will pop up. Click on that to be taken to the gift. This makes shopping a breeze.
- Flip the gift guide by using the arrows on the right and left.
Of course, every item perfectly pairs with a Fringe Hours book. Take your pick – the navy blue trade book that is chock full of stories, tips and inspiration for making time for you, or the hard cover white gift book that is more of an exploration and personal journey, with lots of space for journaling and creative exercises. These books are permission slips for women to live creative, fulfilled lives and are a must-buy this holiday season.
I hope you be inspired by this gift guide, and that it will make your Christmas shopping a bit easier this year. May the women you shop for know that they are loved and appreciated by the gifts you select.
