Happy Holidays by Beautiful Stories Photography
Tis the season!


Tis the season of gifting! If you are anything like me, you are running late and out of ideas of what to get your loved ones. You want to give something thoughtful, useful, and meaningful. Something that sparks joy! You definitely do not want to contribute to the pile of “things” we receive but never use each year.

So after researching and searching the internet for hours, I came up with the 8 most meaningful things that will make up for the gifts I will give out this year.


Experience instead of things

I found this to be the most interesting and hence on the top of my list. How often do we indulge ourselves in a Cooking Class we have been eyeing for long or the chocolate and wine tasting evening to spend with our significant other? Not very often. But these are the things your loved ones will actually enjoy and talk about for the entire year! Does your mom love to bake? Gift her a baking class. Does your sister like pottery? Gift her an hour at her favorite clay store. This year, I am giving my Husband and I a cooking class at Sur-la-table.
