Christmas Shopping

It’s that time of year again and the Christmas shopping madness is in full effect.  I wanted to share some of my favorite gift giving ideas and a few favorite companies that are giving back when you make a purchase from them.


Some of my favorite gifts I have given have come from Etsy.  The site features handmade items. My absolute favorite is the memory bears I purchased from Paula’s Bears.  Paula did a great job transforming my late fathers t-shirts into three bears to keep in his memory and I could not have been happier with my purchase.



This is a family owned company that creates adorable hand-knit dolls and for each doll purchased 10 meals are provided to children in need.  Take a look at their website and I guarantee you will fall in love.


Horray for the Underdog!

The company offers greeting cards and stationery featuring rescued animals.  Check them out at:


State Bags

Crafters of stylish bags and the give back program.  For every bag sold, one is hand delivered to an American child in need.


Alex and Ani

Alex and Ani have a gorgeous collection of eco-conscious jewelry and accessories including the very cute and stylish expandable bangle.  Visit:


These companies have not sponsored or paid me for this blog, these are truly just a few of my favorites I thought I would pass along.

Check back next week for a list of great gift ideas for the men in your life!
