Happy Holidays + 5 last minute meaningful gift ideas!

 

“What is Christmas? It is the tenderness of the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.  It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.” Agnes M. Pahro

I absolutely love this quote as it fully embodies the sentiment of this holiday season. We are remembering fondly experiences of past holidays spent with friends & family, cultivating courage & acceptance for this moment so that we can continue to stay hopeful for the year to come♥️

Since many of us are avoiding going out as much as possible, here a few ideas for last minute meaningful gifts for others or for yourself. Bonus – none of them require shipping!

The gift of meditation – A subscription to a meditation app such as Calm, Headspace or Insight Timer is a great gift for anyone who is curious about meditation or is a little stressed out these days (aren’t we all!). I like all 3 of these apps. However, I personally use Calm as I love the meditations – plus they have great bedtime stories for those who struggle falling asleep.

The gift of music – I love my Spotify membership and think it’s a fabulous idea for anyone who loves music. Many people use the free version which has regular commercial interruptions and quite a few limitations. The paid version is definitely worth the money! I love to create yoga playlists for students who enjoy listening to them during class – you can find them on my account reneewalkeryoga!

The gift of memoriesStoryworth is a great idea for someone special in your life. The recipient receives a question prompt every week to answer and receives a beautiful bound book at the end of the year with the compilation of thoughts & advice shared. You can print additional copies to keep or gift as a keepsake. A dear friend of mine gifted this to her mom and has cherished the final product ever since. I’ve purchased this one personally for someone in my life this year… shhhhh!

The gift of experience – Even though we can’t be together physically at this time, there are great virtual events happening such as fun educational workshops, cooking classes, chocolate & wine tastings, concerts and many shows. A gift of shared experience is always appreciated!

The gift of wellness – Is there any better gift than one that is all about feeling your very best? Cue – shameless plug🤩. I’ve got you covered from yoga, meditation, individual coaching & transformative group programs – it’s like a virtual spa for the mind, body & spirit. The Sacred Wellness Circle program or a monthly membership might just be the perfect gift to give yourself or someone dear to you this year!

And that is a wrap! I hope these gift ideas are helpful to you! Wishing you the very best this Holiday Season has to offer🎄.

Sending love & gratitude to you. May you find ways to nourish your spirit during the Holidays.
