For a gift that will make someone happy for 101 days, take a peek at 101 Smiles Make a Sunshine. It’s a gift book that becomes a sculpture. Every day write down something that’s make you happy. Then, fold the page. At the end of the 100 days, when you open the book, you have a shining sun. It’s a neat gift to give with a super important message. They also have another book called 101 Joys Make a Rainbow. Give someone both for almost a full year of memory making.

Give a gift that gives back! Hydro Flask’s 16 oz True Pints are made from 18/8 food-grade stainless steel and the double wall vacuum provides top-notch insulation power. Hydro Flask is proud that all of its products are BPA-free, 100% recyclable and are backed by a lifetime warranty. Gift givers can also feel great about their purchase as the company gives 5% of its net profits to 12 different non-profits through its charitable arm 5% back. These are useful, adorable and durable!

If you have someone in your live who loves nautical items, or lobster, or jewelry, I have a gift idea for you.

The Arc system is a DIY notebook. You purchase the style of paper you want, the notebook cover (and back) that you want, and then there are specialty inserts available. The notebook is put together with a set of rings. You can simply pop the accessories and papers onto the rings. Extra rings are available as well. (In cool colors!)
I do a lot of list making and writing. I have a lot of ideas, blog posts, and projects going at one time, all the time. As things are published, completed or abandoned, I like to tear the pages out. With a traditional notebook, this kind of leaves me with a mess. With the Arc system, the pages come out without fuss. I used the dividers to create groups for my blog, videos, other projects, and lists. I use the small list pad to write down my daily goals. These are grown up notebooks. They come in a variety of colors and textures. My fave is the Burgundy Notebook, perfect for the holidays!
If you’re looking for an inspirational book check out Chicken Soup for the Soul’s newest release, Think Possible. It’s filled with tales of over coming adversity, turning bad times into good and making the best of every single day. I like that it can be read in short segments, in between meetings and everything else going on in a busy schedule. It’s moving and I warn you, it will cause inspiration.
For a gift that does good and STILL gives the recipient something to open, try Faith Box. Each box contains favorite scriptures, inspirational quotes, and seasonal prayers – all centered around a unique monthly theme. These aren’t your average goods. Everything is made ethically, is eco-friendly, and is good for the soul. Every box that you purchase feeds a child-in-need through our Rice Bowls partnership! Plus, many of the products are from companies who match the purchases made with an equivalent donation to a worthy cause. The box I received had a snack bar (yummy!), a candle, a lip balm, a full length book and the daily devotional. It’s a great way to do good and gift.

(They hang on the wall!). Available in stadiums all over the country, with names and without. These are colorful, fun, whimsical and just what you need for those hard to shop for people on your list!
