I realized this weekend that we are almost into December and I haven’t compiled any gift lists yet. I am not a huge gift guide person but sometimes it’s nice to give a few ideas that you may not have thought about before. My first gift guide is for the Introvert or Homebody. So in other words someone like me who prefers home to crowds, curling up in bed with comfortable pyjamas, warm socks, a throw, some tea, and a book. I’m always cold so I like warm things and things that are unique or quirky like the teapots from Lennymud (I have a mug from there that is my favourite mug ever), a cute LED light for the wall, and fun pillows.

My daughter is an aspiring artist and wanted some better quality pencil crayons so I picked her up some Prismacolor which come in several price ranges depending on the quality level. I bought her some mid level ones that cost me $25 on sale (regularly $50). Some good quality pencil crayons and an adult style colouring book are great gifts (I got her a learning to draw Anime book as well).

A warm yet fun robe for someone who is always cold, some loose tea and a cute diffuser for a tea lover, or The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees  for your minimalistic friend are some ideas that would be appreciated.

I officially bought my last Christmas present this weekend from a Black Friday sale (I still need some stocking stuffers but those are quick, easy, and inexpensive). It feels good to be done. How close are you?

  1. Very cool gift guide, Sara, I hope you had as much fun putting it together as readers like me do reviewing it. Thank you, Ardith

    • Christmas is my favourite time of year. I love planning and buying gifts, decorations, the overall atmosphere of everything. My mindset when making this was “what does Sara want?” I’m perpetually cold and all these things made me feel warm 😉 I’m such a homebody though.

  2. this is me to a T, i love this list! i’m pretty much done with my shopping, i’ve been buying stuff here and there throughout the year. and totally cool that your daughter is exploring art, i’d love to see her work on your site!

    • Thanks! She taught herself using YouTube videos and brings her sketchbook with her every where. I’m really proud how much her skill has improved over a really short period of time. It’s nice to see her working hard at something.
