christmas gifts

We’re just about 2 weeks away from Christmas!! Are you ready? (cue the classic Home Alone scene) 

If you’re still struggling for meaningful, fun and affordable gift ideas, you’ve GOT to listen to our Sacred Grounds Podcast recent episodes…A Few of Our Favorite Things (Part 1 and 2). We’re sharing our favorite, affordable gift ideas for 2020, in order to bring you and your loved ones comfort and joy!

In Part 1, we explain the idea behind the “Three Wise Men” gifts. This was something totally new to me this year, and I’m so excited to try it out with my family. How could you simplify and provide deeper meaning to your gift-giving, by focusing on just THREE things? 

Similar to the purpose of the gifts of frankincense, myrrh and gold, we can focus on a gift for the body (clothing, self-care), a gift for the mind (spiritual growth gift, something to expand your mind), and a gift to delight (like gold, a special item that is just for fun).  I’ve had so much fun using this method for my family this year! 

In Part 2, we share gift ideas that are thoughtful, affordable (or free!) and great for last-minute shopping.  We’re talking homemade gift coupons for a favorite meal or a foot rub, “get out of jail free” cards for the kids, and memory-making experiences to enjoy being present over “presents.” 

You don’t want to miss these fun and festive gift ideas!

Our Christmas gift list to bless the whole family, is below. You can find links to some of the items here, in our show notes-the rest of them, you can find on Amazon or other online shopping sites. Be sure to hear our weekly podcast on your favorite listening platform!: Apple, Google, Spotify, Pandora and more! 

Coming up December 15th: How to Navigate Loss and Grief, During the Holidays, with Michele Novotni, Psychologist PhD.
