So Christmas is fast approaching and I don’t know about you but I have been scratching my head for some time on what to get for those I love. I decided to do a little research on some of the things that I would love for christmas and thought I would share with you my ideas. All of these gifts are just perfect for the girl who is just starting her own self-development journey or has been working on her self-growth for years.

A Tribe Called Bliss - Lori Harder

This book has been on my wishlist for a long while now and I am so excited to read it. If you don’t know Lori Harder is an amazing woman who uses her podcast and instagram to inspire women to love themselves no matter what. I absolutely love her podcast, Earn Your Happy as it provides such inspiration and ltitle nuggets of wisdom to help you become more fulfilled.

This book is a recent release of hers and focuses on the people you surround yourself with. It looks at the benefits of having a supportive tribe around you and how when she focused on this aspect of her life she transformed from an anxious introvert into a confident woman.

I love the idea of getting this book for a friend as it is about friendships and relationships itself, so it will be quite fitting!

In A Tribe Called Bliss Lori Harder bridges the gap between inspiration and action, providing a lasting resource for positive change and a guidebook for establishing a support tribe

Essential Oil Diffuser

Essential oils are very popular in the self-care world. If you have a friend that is just getting into personal development essential oils are a great place to start.

What’s great about this is that you can purchase the oil diffuser as the main gift and depending on what you know your friend is struggling with at the moment, you can find the oils that will compliment them. Making this gift practical and thoughtful.

I love the look of this diffuser as it will go with any decor. It isn’t too imposing and it’s pretty neutral. This will look great on their nightstand and its such a good price you could buy yourself one too!

52 Lists For Happiness Book

If you have a friend that loves making lists or journalling, or maybe she just loves to put pen to paper then this gift is perfect. This is one of hte most inexpensive so great if you don’t have a big budget.

This book is basically just a load of prompts for the reader to reflect on themselves and start acknowledging their worth. This is such a beautiful gift for a friend that just needs a little boost in the self-love department and is open to putting in some work to get there.

I am actually putting this book on my own wishlist as I think writing down your thoughts and being aware of your feelings helps so much with your self-development.

Living Language - Spanish

We all have a friend that has always wanted to learn to play an instrument or learn a new language and I can tell you all they need is just a little push to start.

I have always wanted to learn spanish so I found this really affordable learning course. I would highly reccomend this as a gift because it is going to bring them so much into their life and could potentially change it completely!

Amazon have loads of different courses for languages, or even piano starter books and I can imagine they have almost any language or instrument you can think of.

Vegan Snack Hamper

As part of my self-development journey I have decided to take part in Veganuary (find out more about it here). If you have a friend that is also going through this journey then christmas is the perfect opportunity to gift them items that will help them and get them prepared for Veganuary.

A vegan hamper is perfect for this and mine has been on my Amazon wishlist for a little while so fingers crossed!

These hampers just include some chocolates and treats that are completely vegan and some organic too. It comes in a very festive burlap sack so no need to wrap up which is always handy. From my own experience, sometimes I feel like people are rolling their eyes at me for wanting to take part in Veganuary so getting something like this from a friend would show me that they are supporting my decision and are actually willing to help me out. So thoughtful and will be a winner every time.
