Or a gift guide for yourself, if you’re a worrier.
And, in the interest of full disclosure, I want to make it clear that this is 100% not a sponsored ad of any sort. As of right now, this blog is completely unmonetized. While making a little $$$ off this blog is on my list of resolutions for 2016, rest assured that I will always let you know if anything is sponsored content. But as of right now, I’m just yammering about all these things because I think they’re super cool and want you to enjoy them too!
- A coloring book for grown-ups – I just canNOT call this an “adult coloring book” because…well…it seems too much like an “adult” film. But I am a (sort of) grown-up, and I love coloring! It fits my personal level of artistic ability very well, and it’s the perfect way to de-stress. A great accompaniment for a podcast, reality TV, or a glass of wine.
- How to be Happy (Or at Least Less Sad): A Creative Workbook by Lee Crutchley – This is on my list of things to buy myself because it looks really interesting and has great reviews. If you’ve used it and have thoughts (good, bad, or ugly) let me know!
- A stress ball – Sometimes I am a stress-ball myself–as in, I’m a ball of stress. But that’s not the kind of stress ball I’m talking about here. As someone with very restless hands, I always need something to fiddle with. This is a more relaxing alternative to folding straw wrappers.
- A subscription to Spotify Premium – It is free for the first three months, but after that it is $10 a month. It’s a great way to tune out the world and let out all of your ~feels~.
- Candles – Candles make everything better. It’s a fact. If you’ve never been to Denmark, then you have never enjoyed candle-culture at its finest, but believe me, it’s fantastic. Nothing makes a room cozier faster than lighting a few candles. Mrs. Meyers candles are always great, I loved Bath and Body Works’ fall candles, so I would hope that their winters ones would be no different!
- Some sort of favor! – What’s stressing your worrier out? Do they need a nice, quiet evening with their spouse, no kids allowed? Then baby-sit! Is their household clutter freaking them out? Plan a Saturday to help them out! You could even throw in a bottle of wine for the two of you to share once the job is done.
What are you getting the worrier in your life (and/or yourself) this holiday season?
