I’m thankful for the significant things like family, friends, and health. But, I’m also thankful for tangible things. This list of things I am thankful for makes my life easier or better. Tangible things I use regularly and are in some way unique.
These top 24 recommended gifts are sure to please. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that someone special on your shopping list, I have the perfect list for you.
My family loves Christmas. I mean LOVES it! For the last several years, our Christmas decorations have come out in October. It started the year my husband was diagnosed and underwent treatment for cancer. A dear friend came to visit to help out. She asked what else she could do and I asked her if she’d help me decorate for the holidays. I wanted the home cheerful while we were going through a difficult time, and I knew that without someone else’s help, decorations were likely to not make it up that year. Ever since, we’ve continued to decorate early. My son plays Christmas carols intermittently throughout the year, but fairly steadily from September or October through the holidays.
While giving gifts is one of my love languages, I have to admit that one of my favorite things on Christmas is our stockings. I don’t need much nor want much in the way of presents, but ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved the little surprises stuffed in the fur capped oversized sock hanging from the mantle.
I’m always in search of the perfect stocking stuffers for my boys, husband, and in-laws. This year I thought it might be fun to share with you some of my favorite finds.
While I am an author, I’m also an avid reader—reading somewhere between 50-100 books a year. Several friends come to me frequently for my “best picks” for what to read next. So if you’re looking for books to put on your Christmas wish list, or books to buy for your reader loved one, you’ll definitely want to check these out.
