Hi my loves, it’s that time of year again and I am so excited for the holidays! It’s such a peaceful time full of warm and cozy moments with friends and family, too many peppermint mochas, tree decorating, stocking stuffing (I could go on for days here) and last but not least of course, gift-giving! I’m a huge advocate for supporting our communities and each other all throughout the year but especially during the holidays. It is really a wonderful feeling to give to others in general but especially to those who really need it and even more so during this time of year. So without further ado, here is the 2020 annual holiday gift guide, packed full of fun ideas, local recommendations, charitable organizations and more!
