Hi everyone! We’re back at you with a new episode of the show, and this week it’s all about giving. Just in time for the holidays! As always you can stream the episode right here or get it by subscribing to us on iTunes.
Laura and I both love to get a great gift for someone. Some of our favourite things to give and receive are books! This year our top books to give are:
- From Laura: Journey to the Heart by Melodie Beattie
- From Steph: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed
And we have so many on our wishlists this season as well! Some highlights:
We also love to give experiences, like tickets to a show, Passport to Prana, or a cooking class.
When we want to give thoughtful gifts, we usually turn to Etsy for customized, beautiful things. You can see some Laura’s favourite shops here. I’m not organized enough to have my favourite shops saved, but I love Etsy too!
On the show we talk about how it is important to us to give back as well, especially at this time of year. One of my favourite organizations is Kiva, which offers micro-loans to small business owners worldwide. But it’s also possible to make a difference locally! Look around in your community to see which smaller organizations might need help or a bit of love this holiday season.
Really though, we agree with Lululemon that the most important thing we can give at this time of year is presence, not presents. We hope you have an absolutely wonderful holiday season.
Thank you so much for listening! Do you have any great ideas for gifts? Talk to us on Twitter @GreenGuineaPigs!
