Holiday Gift Ideas 🎁✨ self care, wellness, creativity, eco-conscious, tech


Hi loves. Happy December. It’s officially holiday season, so I thought I’d kick it off with a holiday gift ideas video. I have over 20 gift ideas for you today in
self care, creativity, wellness and more. I’m also kick-starting a 12 days
of giveaways on Instagram, which will include a lot of the gifts from this list. So follow me on Instagram at @lavendaire and
@shoplavendaire right now, because the first giveaway starts today. All right, let’s get started. The first gift idea in self care is
a silk or satin sleep mask. I’ve been using this mask by Slip
and it’s so smooth and comfortable. I wear it on the plane and on nights when
it’s harder for me to fall asleep. Silk is super gentle on your skin and it also absorbs
less of your skincare than cotton does. The next gift idea is to get a beauty
subscription box for your loved one. This one is a haircare box by Facetory. They have subscription boxes for sheet masks,
K beauty products, and now haircare. Subscription boxes really are a gift that keeps on giving. They’re great for anyone who loves trying new products. Next, I don’t think you can go wrong with gifting sheet masks to your friends and family. Seriously, who doesn’t love hydration,
especially in the winter? We all love sheet masks and we can’t
get enough of them. More please, thank you! If your loved one enjoys spending
extra time on skincare, a rose quartz or jade roller and gua sha
would make great gifts. These are tools to help your skincare
products sink deeper into your skin, while promoting circulation and lymphatic drainage
in your face and neck areas. They’re fun and therapeutic to use
if you’re the type to enjoy making time for it. Lastly, you can always gift your favorite
skincare products that you know and love, especially if you know your loved one has
a similar skin type or lifestyle as you. Just share the love. This, for example, is a box of the most loved
green beauty products from Detox Market. These would be great for someone who’s interested
in transitioning into clean beauty. Next are my gift ideas for the creatives in your life. An Instax camera is always a cute gift, especially if your loved one loves to capture
memories, craft, or decorate. They also make really pretty room décor, so while the camera is on display, you’ll be remembered as the one who gave this to them. Another gift idea that I think is underrated
is an Instax printer. Basically, this allows you to print any photo
from your phone onto Instax film, making it easy to turn any memory into a cute tangible photo that you can use however you like. I actually love this more than the camera
because it’s more flexible. Print anything you’d like from your phone instantly. Next, I gotta plug in the 2020 Artist of Life Workbook. This is a guided journal that I created to help you plan your most intentional, inspiring, and successful year. Packed with questions and exercises to help you self-reflect and plan out your dreams and goals in detail, this is the perfect gift for anyone looking
to change their life in 2020. On top of the 12 days of giveaways
we’re doing on Instagram, I want to do one more here on YouTube for
the Artist of Life Workbook. So if you want to win a copy of the workbook, comment below with the best gift
you’ve ever received in your life. You must be subscribed to my YouTube and following my Instagram to be considered. We’ll pick one winner from the comments by
next Wednesday, so good luck! Another great gift from the Lavendaire
collection is the Daily Planner. I use this planner every single day to plan out my days and make sure that I’m focused on what’s important: my top three priorities, self care habits,
daily gratitude, and reflection. The cover says “Create Today” to remind you
to create each day with intention. There are also the new Pastel Notebooks. These cute notebooks come in lined,
dotted, and blank pages that are perfect for journaling,
planning, doodling, and more. The covers are a soft, velvety water-resistant material, and each notebook comes in a protective sleeve. Next, for beauty, I love these Color Drops Serum blushes by em cosmetics, as well as their Lip Clouds. I am such a Michelle Phan fan, so anything she comes out with, I will get it. These are beauty items that anyone can appreciate. The Color Drops comes in such a pretty bottle
and the Lip Clouds are amazing. A worthy tech gift is the Google Home. This one is the mini size,
but they come in a range of sizes. I have this one in my bathroom and use it
almost every day to play music in the morning and
while I’m taking a shower. I love asking what the weather is and
telling it to skip to the next song. No need to push any buttons, and I’m all about that. For the eco-conscious loved one, you can always give them items for their zero waste kit. An example are these mesh produce bags
for grocery shopping. Instead of using those thin plastic bags at
the market which are not recyclable, opt for these reusable washable mesh bags
for your fresh groceries. Another gift idea is this collapsible cup by Stojo. I saw this and was intrigued to try it. It’s basically a reusable cup you can take on the go. It collapses into a smaller piece and then you can expand it into a cup
when you’re ready to use it. Next, we have ideas in spirituality. If your loved one is interested in learning
tarot for inner guidance, this Fountain Tarot deck is gorgeous
and one of my favorites. You could pair it with a beginner’s tarot book like this one here to help them get started. Another cute gift is this Birthdate candle. This brand creates a candle for every day of the year, and on the candle are readings for that birth date
based on astrology and numerology. It’s a nice gift with a personal touch. Next is this book called
“The Encyclopedia of Birthdays”. Similar to the previous gift, this book has personality
assessments for each day of the year. I’ve had this book for years and it’s always fun to share this
with your friends and family, because everyone wants to look up their birthday and learn more about themselves. Moving onto the wellness category. A diffuser with some essential oils would
make a great gift for anyone who wants to enhance how their home feels. I love using a diffuser, because I could basically decide how I want my room to smell that day, and I change it up depending on the mood
or what I feel like I need. You could also gift a meal delivery service
for a couple months. HelloFresh is one that I’ve enjoyed using. They send you recipes and the exact ingredients
that you would need, so that no food goes to waste. So this would be a great gift for anyone
who wants to learn how to cook. Another idea is to gift a ClassPass
or a gym membership. I love ClassPass. It’s basically an app where you can take classes
at different studios, so you get to try out a lot of different types of workouts. Next are gift ideas for the readers out there. An Audible subscription is amazing for anyone who wants to read more but can’t find the time to. All you have to do is listen on your free time during commutes or while doing chores. Another subscription for more voracious readers
is Book of the Month. They send you new books each month
that have been carefully selected, so you could spend less time doing research and more time reading good books. And there you have it: 22 gift ideas
for you this holiday season. And now I am so excited to talk about the giveaway. I wanted a way to celebrate and thank our
most loyal and engaged Lavi Loves. So starting today, we’ll be doing 12 days
of giveaways on Instagram. The first prize is this Instax camera. So hop on over to Instagram to learn how to enter. Each day, we’ll have a new prompt, a new prize,
and a new winner. Lastly, I didn’t want to leave YouTube out, so don’t forget about the giveaway happening
right here in the comments down below to win the 2020 Artist of Life Workbook. All right, I appreciate you guys so much. Thanks so much for watching
and subscribing to Lavendaire. Sending you all my love. See you next time. Bye!

  1. The best gift I’ve ever received was a little Koala 🐨 winter hat. My younger brother was in 3rd grade at the time, playing a Christmas game at school and he wanted to win the hat because it reminded him of me.

  2. The best gift I had ever received was from my bestfriend she gave me a piece of paper and when I opened it she had wrote down all the fun times we had together and all the things she loved about me

  3. The best gift I ever received was my little sister. She was born on my 9th birthday and we adored each other from the very start🥰❤️

  4. The best gift I ever received was a bag of coffee from my brother. He went on a missions trip to Guatemala and while he was there he visited a coffee plantation where he picked roasted and hand bagged and sealed the beans for me. The bag of coffee came along with a video showing him go through the steps of the process it was soo special, irreplaceable.

  5. The best gift I’ve ever received was a pillow (seems lame), but my grandmother passed away two September’s ago and the pillow was made of the fabric of her favorite gown!! It means so much to me!

  6. The best gift I ever received was my cat. It was impossible for my family to have a cat as my mom and my little brother were allergic. When we discovered that Siberian cats are hypoallergenic, it was a game changer! However, they are really expensive cats and we didn't have the money to adopt one. Last Christmas, all my family pitched in so we would be able to adopt Gisèle, the most beautiful, funny, intelligent kitty 💖 She has helped us in so many ways! Zootherapy is a real thing! ✨☺️🐈

  7. The best gift I have ever received in my life was a beginner watercolor set along with a sketchbook. I didn't use it right away, but when I did a few years later (!) it changed my artist life for the better. I still use it (or what is left of it)!

  8. The best gift I recieved was tickets to go on a hot air balloon ride. Although the gift itself was already wonderful, it was how my husband and a sweet co worker got them that made it so special. Because there's no way we could afford them. My husband and co worker volunteered (thorough work) and his own time to get the tickets by helping at a place called Vista Hot Air Balloons in Oregon. I had no idea he was planning on getting tickets. I am so blessed to have such sweet people in my life.

    Thank you Aileen for putting out life changing content. You have really changed my mindset and I'm so glad I found you.

  9. The best gift I’ve ever received was earrings and a necklace from my dad. It was so amazing to see him pick out something special for me that he would never usually do.

  10. the best gift i received was my dog. i'd been wanting one since i was a kid and my mom had said maybe when you're 15. When i turned 15, she got me a dog!! sadly he passed away last year, but i'm truly grateful for all the moments i got to share with him 🥺

  14. my best gift will definitely be having Jesus Christ in my life. Without him, my existence & purpose will mean nothing. His saving grace & love makes my identity firm as a child of God

  15. The best present i've received were my skates for figure skating because without them, a part of me wouldn't be fulfilled✨

  16. I have not seen your videos from my YouTube pop ups. I’ve been lazy for setting or working on my goals for a long time. And this has made my feel very depressed. So I thought about your, and searched your name and you have not failed! I got my spiritual nutrition just what I need. I could not remember if I have received anything memorable, but if I get your planner, it would really make a difference in my life. Thanks for making these videos!

  17. The best gift I ever received was life. It’s filled with wonderful experiences and people. And challenges too that help us become who we are. There’s so much to learn. And it’s all thanks to family

  18. Last year gift was pretty amazing. I had been having a difficult time finding a job in my chosen career and right before Christmas I got offered a job position in an amazing location 🌴🌞 This year I was surprised by the news that I was expecting my second child and his due date is December 25, 2019. Although he is not here yet, he has giving me a lot of perspective and has helped me grow up a lot this year I can’t wait to meet him 👶

  26. I don't know if it's the best gift but, when I was little, one Christmas my mother didn't have much money for gifts, she couldn't afford any toys, so she bought some slate boards and chalk for me and my siblings. She thought we'd be disappointed and cry on Christmas morning, but we actually loved them! We could draw as much as we wanted, then erase the pictures and draw again!! It was a gift I didn't expect but it made me really happy, I used mine for years. I remember using it to give my siblings and cousins English lessons when I started learning the language.

  27. 💝💝 Well, I don't really receive gifts. However, the best gift I've ever received was my mother. She's the parent I could have ever asked for. She's the reason that I keep working on my life. Also, your channel has played an amazing part in my self journey!! Love you so much!! 💖💖

  30. One of the best gift I received was when a complete stranger who was sitting next to our table paid the bill of our table at the nice restuarante. She left before we found out so we didn't get a chance to thanks her. We paid it forward her kindness with big fat tips to our server 🙂

My dad is an OFW, so ever since I was a kid I didn't have the chance to spend the holidays with my Mom and Dad. If I only knew that would be our last Christmas together, I would have hug him tighter and make the rest of his days extra special. Dad, I know you are in good hands and you are my angel now. I miss youu so much.. you are the best gift that I ever had in my life. Iloveyou!!

    i don’t have instagram but was wondering if i could still enter the giveaway of the 2020 artist of life journal?

  48. The best gift I have ever recieved was actually from my mother in law. And she got me a whole box full of grapeheads. Which was my favorite candy as a child. It instantly brought tears of joy ❤️

  49. The best gift I received was a teddy bear… it wasn’t just a regular teddy bear though, this one had arms and legs that could move like a Barbie would.
