Christmas gift guides

{Post contains affiliate links; your purchase may result in funding toward my blog!}

I know, I know, you’re probably just here looking for Paris pictures. Don’t worry, they’ll be up soon! Listen though: I also know some of you definitely haven’t started your gift shopping yet (waiting for day after Christmas sales anyone??), and I also know some of you aren’t as lucky as me to be that annoying family member who might bring something from another country as a Christmas present this year, so I figured why not share some of my gift picks with you?!? You can find the three other guides that I’ve put together over here, including mom, dad, and that special guy in your life.

I decided to share the two gift guides for the free spirit as well as the traveler first because I’m pretty sure those are the trickiest people in the friend group to buy for (aside from dudes)!  I think they’re also the most fun though, am I right?

We all have that one friend (seriously, you know the one) who goes against the grain a bit, and I felt it was appropriate to make a whole guide just for her, because we totally celebrate that friend! I’ve been eyeing up a salt lamp of my own and I just had to include it in this guide, because I feel like that free spirited friend always has at least one in their room, am I right? And if not, you should probably gift it to them.

1. Everything’s Falling into Phase Yoga Mat
2. Tropic of Cancer book
3. It’s Sedimentary, My Dear Necklace
4. Still Circle Tapestry
5. Aura Smudge Spray
6. Salt Trade Bath Infusion Tea
7. Good Vibes Only, Zen As Fuck Candle
8. Himalayan Salt Lamp

This friend is probably always on the move, and you have to catch them when you can because you’re not sure the next time they’ll be in town (but when they are, I’m sure they’re a blast)!  I put this guide together with moving parts in mind, and things of necessity as well as fun things they can take with them (or things that will remind them of their travels when they’re home~). I’ve seen that book What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding being mentioned all over the travel facebook groups, so it was obviously a must-include that I’ll likely purchase myself when I get home, hehe.

1. All-in-One Travel Adapter with USB
2. There’s a Map for That Necklace
3. Passport Journal
4. What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding
5. The Adventure Begins Mug
6. Maps Desk Calendar
7. Polaroid Instant Snap Digital Camera
8. World Scratch Map
9. Mophie Portable Charger

Are there gift guides you’d like for me to put together?

    ooh yes Kate, I’m absolutely loving this gift guide set! My dad went ham and bought a bunch of salt lamps the other day, so I have one sitting next to me right now. I love the instant-bohemian vibe it gives- you should definitely get one! Also am totally in love with the Traveler gift set. so good!!
