I am posting, unusually, on a Friday, because this is timely. First of all, I am going to go out on a limb and guess that 98% of you still aren’t done with your holiday shopping (I am right there with you) and would love some more ideas. Second, this is only available for this weekend (more on that at the end).
My friend, Lauren, just released her first eBook called Thinking Outside the Gift Box*. Clever title, right?
Well the cleverness doesn’t end there. Lauren loaded her book with over 70 amazing gift ideas that will certainly cover everyone left on your holiday list.
These aren’t craft projects that take hours to complete or impersonal “cookie-cutter” gifts. This is a collection of truly thoughtful gifts that will make you look more creative than you are and won’t take up a ton of your time.
In other words, exactly what you need during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
I have an extra special treat for you today. Lauren sat down with me for an interview. We talked a little decorating and a lot about gift giving.
Just to give you an idea, this is straight from Lauren:
It’s about celebrating someone in a way that is unique and specific to them. And when you give gifts with that kind of thought, care, and intentionality, it sends a two-fold message loud and clear:
“You are known. And you are loved.”
She also shared with me:
- How she and her husband found their decorating style through a really cool project
- How to get past “gifter’s block”
- How to come up with meaningful gifts for everyone on your list that they will treasure for years to come
- And, her favorite gift idea.
The best part of all, Lauren’s book Thinking Outside the Gift Box* is full of wonderful gift-giving stories (did I mention she is a former English and Theater teacher, aka gifted writer and talented storyteller?). Her book makes a wonderful gift in and of itself.
