  1. Nice ideas and guides! I am mostly done with holiday shopping (still needs some touch-up and we are not done with secret Santa because we haven’t exchanged the targets yet) but it always is so stressful!

  2. I am a huge lover of any tea-based gift sets. Last year, a friend gifted me a tea advent calendar and it was like the gift that kept on giving with a new tea to try each day leading up to Christmas. I don’t have one yet this year but I was just thinking maybe I should pick one up. Sure, I should be a couple days into it, but I’m sure that I could handle catching up 😉 Right? lol

  4. I need to pick up tea! I’ll check out the company you recommended above, as you’ve always given great recommendations before. I’m doing themed gifts this year for everyone. Sloth theme for one, books/tea for another, veteran-owned companies for another, and stuff like that. My husband and I were just talking about needing to pick up some tea for the book themed gifts, so your recommendation is literally perfect!
