Holiday Gift Guide : Charming Finds For $20 Or Less

I often set out to take care of the little gifts on my list first every year. I think I developed this habit one year when I overlooked people whom I should've remembered, and felt so bad last minute when I had nothing for them. Ever since I keep a small cache of gifts that are easy to give to anyone.
This year I'm also rounding up items that might encourage a little quiet, or pause in our busy rushed world.

First on the list. The gift of tea. I love teapigs.ca, it's easy to order and their teas are truly the very best I've ever had. Send it directly to the recipients home or order several packages to have on hand. Either way it's such a thoughtful gift. Enter the promo code 'Ericateapigs" you'll receive a 10% discount on your order.
At $20 this mug and tea combo is a cute option too.

I've purchased a few of these Illume candles to keep on hand. The candle itself is pretty and smells amazing, but the box is also such a nice touch with a reusable white and gold tassel topper. No one would guess it's only $14.

Fresh came out with their Zodiac Soap Collection again. I think these are such a thoughtful gift... likely because it also means you have to know when the recipients birthday is. Each bar comes wrapped in thick bright paper with a wire and gemstone in the centre. No need to wrap even. Every sign smells divine, so no one single sign is getting a more desirable scent.

Lot's of us commute or maybe spend more time in our cars than we'd like to. I love how this sweet little Saje diffuser is specially made for those longer rides and provides a little relaxation when traffic might not be. This gift is sure to make anyone smile.

Last but not least, I love keeping a few boxes of chocolates set aside. This particular box from Purdy's is delicious (I won't say how, but I know first hand). Worst case scenario, you don't gift them and you eat them yourself over the holidays. Otherwise these assorted boxes are just so nice to have on hand for a last minute gift.

These are just a few of the items I'll have extras of. The best part is that it's one less thing I'll stress about. Do you have a gift that you like to keep extras of?

I love challenges! My idea of a traditional holiday - the right way to do it - goes back to the days when gift-giving meant sharing homemade things: hand-knit sweaters, carved wooden toys, smoked meats and the like.

I'd add canvas prints featuring art like yours. These artworks will make every guest feel right at home. Robert from Parrot Print Canvas ►► https://www.parrotprintcanvas.com/
