Below you’ll find a list [+ some pics!] of some of our recs for Christmas gifts this year. Enjoy!

BROOKE

My favorite Lip Balmmm of all time! Specifically the Coconut Hibiscus one! So smoooooth and wonderful.

I love this book! Heather provides so much Truth to fill our minds with and also includes practical ways to renew our minds! A must read!

The Abridged Journal made by the awesome people at Letterfolk. This journal helps the wanna be journalers actually journal—it provides prompts and is so cozy looking. I’m putting it on my Christmas list.

My favorite candy of all time is Sees candy.  Have you tried it? You and your best friend need to share a box of these while watching Elf.

 

LINDSEY

Love Does by Bob Goff- Life-changing. That’s all.

L.L. Bean Wicked Good Moccasins (slippers)- I know they look like most slippers, but these are better than any others I have had. They are the softest, most plush slippers… and they have a lifetime warranty. They are well worth the price!

Dr Bronner’s Peppermint Organic Lip Balm- This stuff is bomb- so good for dry lips in the winter! It is so moisturizing and I love the smell. Also, it’s not filled with yucky chemicals, so that’s a plus.

Bose Bluetooth Speaker- Perfect for playing worship music in the background while you work or for those times when you need a dance party.

 

SARAH

Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey
Dried Mango from Aldi ((warning: addiction may occur- life changing yummy!))
Target Merona cotton-fleece leggings- SO COMFY and WARM- get them on sale!
Cool thrift store finds @ Fantastic Thrift in the Fan of RVA

MELISSA

These books are incredible. Rivers takes artistic liberties with them but Gods grace is clear throughout each.

Smells like Christmas joy!

A great bible study through the book of John for a group or going through John by yourself

Feels great! Smells great!

 

MAGGIE

A mug to drink tea/coffee in during time with Jesus

A craft you love and want to do but never make/have time

This devo about living life “unhurried” — [You guys can download the PDF of this HERE!]

And a glorious smelling candle.

KATHLEEN

1- really cozy Sherpa lined blankets (I have one that I’m obsessed with and have trouble leaving it in the morning)
2- cozy slippers
3- prickly pear and orange Sanpelligrino
4- late night bowls of popcorn

JOCELYN

 

You guys. I got this at Trader Joe’s this week and it’s almost gone. It’s a problem. Grab it while you can since it’s seasonal! But also be aware that it’s easy to eat a lot at once.

I recently found out about this company through instagram [@brunchcandlebox]. If you want to get/give a gift from a company that also gives back, and you’re addicted to candles like me, this company does a monthly subscriptions of a certain candle related to that month, and will even include a little snack in the box. For every box, they give a meal to a hungry child. You can just get/give a one time box if you want! The candles are great-smelling and last a while [even the small ones]. And it’s super fun to wonder what you’ll get!

You guys KNOW I love me some Ann. I’m always talking about this book but it’s so good and directs my heart to see the aspects of God’s grace all around me, even in the mundane.

For my creative types [or if you have one in your life]! This book my Jenny Randle is pretty cool. There’s different prompts each day to get in touch with your creative side, and there’s brief devo-type messages in each day to direct you towards God as the ultimate creator. If you need a little push to spark your creativity, this is a fun resource!
