Holiday gift guide for her

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Beyond exchanging gifts with people that I love, celebrating during this season is always incredibly special to me and my family. 
Something that is always top of mind in our family is that Christmas is not about gifts, Santa etc. It’s a time that we all come together to remember and celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ! 

Christmas comes with so many incredible things and I truly look forward to and cherish this time of year every year. But it can also bring a lot of stress - financially, scheduling, deadlines etc. An important thing I’m reminding myself and separating from this season is the lure and tangled web of consumerism. 

This time of year is often strongly associated with the concept of more. More things, more stuff, more food, more decorations, more more more. Let’s take a step back from the draw of accumulating more for the sake of more, and scale back.

 We’re scaling back on the more of it all and going with fewer, quality things that will keep on giving for years and years to come — that’s what I love most about giving gifts to people, buying them something that they’ll (hopefully) have and use forever. The goal is to be a little more thoughtful and intentional with what you’re giving (and why). 

So here’s a gift guide for any of the special women in your life and next week I’ll do a gift guide for the men! 
I have a few of these items, and others are things I would LOVE to own. I thought I’d share some isight on what to get your wife / sister / mom / friend, cause I know the struggle can be real! 

01. Babaa knitwear - this is a life purchase. I have a cardigan of similar design that my dad brought my mom back from Greece when she was pregnant with me and it is one of my most prized possessions. I’d love to add another classic jumper to my collection that I know will stand the test of time. 

02. Vitruvi diffuser - you guys obviously know my love for essential oils and Vitruvi’s quality. this diffuser is so so pretty and she’ll use it every day. Use 'vitruviXsavannah' for 20% off any Vitruvi purchase! 

03. Onecklace the name necklace - (14k gold) put your kids / an initial / or any special word on one of these personalized necklaces and she’ll cherish it forever. I plan to get one with our sweet baby’s name on it and I can't wait to wear this special piece every day. 

04. Mejuri gold bangle - (14k gold) the new bangle launch from Mejuri is the kind of piece you invest in and wear forever, and then pass on to your daughter. beautiful, classic, never goes out of style. 

05. Makeup Bag - the most beautiful leather makeup / travel bags to keep everything clutter free from one of my favorite conscious brands (with an entire movement on 'lean closets'). 

06. Pajamas  - linen, comfy, classic. you can never have to many pjs (also really into these)

07. Soma water filter - drink up! get your recommended water intake, but make it pretty. Soma also donates every time you purchase a filter to water projects to bring safe drinking water to people without it in developing countries. 

08. Leather clogs - I have been on the look out for a pair of clogs that I liked for a while now. I recently discovered No. 6 + their collection of clogs and I have fallen in love with the Issa Closed Back clog (it would be perfect to transition throughout all 4 seasons). 

09. Baggu pouches - these are on my wishlist to keep me organized once the baby gets here! plus I love these sunset colors. 

10. Negative underwear - a great balance of simple + sexy 

11. beeswax candles + salt tea light candle holder - did you know that regular candles release carcinogenic toxins into the air when you burn them? Paraffin and petroleum based candles contain a lot of the same toxins produced by burning diesel fuel - and no one wants to burn that in their house! 100% beeswax candles actually work to clean your air by releasing negative ions into the air and removing allergens. Stock up and make sure they’re 100%! We have these salt candle holders in every room of our house!

12. Everlane classic crew - Everlane is one of my all time favorite stores - they make the best classic silhouettes. This is a perfect transitional sweater from winter to spring! (Also loving this one, and this one)
