I recently asked my followers on Instagram for their gift recommendations and I was overwhelmed at the response. They gave me so many great gift ideas and I have decided to create annual gift guides based off of their recommendations. I added several of my favorite items as well. I was not able to include everything in these boards, but I did compile it all in my Amazon shop here. I am so excited to share these special gift guides, so let’s jump right in!
