“You have no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring You. Nothing seemed right. What's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the ocean. Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It's no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these. So I've brought you a mirror. Look at yourself and remember me.” - RumiEvery year around this time I am often asked, "Do you have any suggestions for an UNUSUAL gift for my daughter?" So I decided to answer that question here...
As my favorite poet, e.e. cummings once wrote
Yours is the light by which my spirit's born:
That said here is a short list to celebrate the light of the girl that is your sun, your moon and all your stars...
- you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.”
...how about a DIY star projector kit - $22.
Or this Solar System necklace by the lovely Gracie of AptoArt.
Looking for an extraordinary stocking stuffer? How about a tiny box of handmade perfume samples made by Jill. Her shop is called "For Strange Women" but there's nothing strange about it. Made from plant extracts and essential oils, you can choose from scents like Coyote, Moss, Horse... and my favorite, Winter Kitty ! - $16. Of course you may just have to indulge her in a full size bottle - $40.
Cassandra of Zenned Out makes lovely, customizable bracelets and rings with inspiring quotes!
And because you want her to follow her passion, you may want to consider this brilliant passion planner invented by Angelia Trinidad! - $30
For the girl who has everything, I'm quite certain that she doesn't have THIS...her very own hand mapping by my friend and gifted writer, Isabel Abbott. - $75
For the irrepressible doodler, there is Zentangles - $15.
Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season!
Made so & rooted by love,
