The holidays truly represent the best time of the year. Families gathered together sharing food, laughter, and gifts. This year we’ve really pulled out the stops to give you the best of the best! Here are our absolute favorite gifts to both give and receive so time to start crossing off those holiday lists!
2018 Holiday Gift Guide: Best of the Best!
1. Storyworth: A Book of Their Life Stories
I can honestly speak from experience when I say this is the very best gift I have ever given. Storyworth is a gift that lasts all year long. Every week, your loved one gets an email prompt asking him or her to share a story or experience from their life. This can be about their first crush, or a funny story you’ve never heard before. Your loved one types in their response, which is then emailed to all the members in your family. At the end of the year, Storyworth sends your loved one a beautifully bound hard-cover book that turns out to be the story of their life. We gifted this to my grandma last year and it was the most incredible experience. I learned some amazing things I never knew about her before…stories that would have been lost without Storyworth! I highly, highly recommend it as one of the best gifts you’ll ever give. Pitch in with your siblings or cousins to make this a very inexpensive and invaluable gift.

2. Nisolo: The Coolest Leather Sneakers
Nisolo is not only a cool place to get the best leather bags and shoes (even leather sneakers!), but it’s a dang cool company too! They’re pushing the fashion industry in a more sustainable direction with ethically made, exceptionally designed products. I have the Elayna Sneaker and I just got my hubby the Cortez. These leather sneakers are hip, unique, super comfortable, and go with any outfit year-round!

3. Rosetta Stone: Give the Gift of a New Language
Is travel in your future? I just got back from a dream trip to Italy and Rosetta Stone was a huge help! This year give a super creative gift—the gift of language! I learned enough Italian to feel confident ordering from a menu, asking for help, and travel around each city. What a great gift!
