The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide For The Soul


You’ve pulled out your most festive PJs. Your evergreen candle is burning on your desk. Your Spotify is locked and loaded with the best of Michael Bublé, Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber, and all your favorite holiday crooners. It’s that time of year again and you are in full on holiday mode. But raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by gift giving?

Of course, the concept of giving is wonderful. It makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and you may even love the hunt for that perfect gift. Let’s face it, though: you’re insanely busy, balling on a budget, and the gift hunt can be harder than getting to a 6am spin class.

With that in mind, we put together a gift guide for the soul. This season, when picking out that perfect present whether it’s for your mom, your workout buddy, or your bestie who seems to have everything under the sun, select your gift based on the energy you wish to evoke: positivity, inspiration, motivation, confidence, or comfort and care. Bonus: every gift is less than $100. Okay, okay. Every gift other than one is under $100. (We just couldn't get enough of the Paddle Your Own Canoe throw.)

It's the season of comfort and joy. That means you should be feeling all those positive vibes, too. Leave the stressful gift hunt to us.
