Fall to me is not just about pumpkin flavored everything and cozy sweaters, although that has a lot to do with it. It’s a time to reflect on what you have, the people you’re surrounded by. It’s a time to express gratitude. I feel truly blessed for the amazing people I have in my life. I am so grateful I get another fall to snuggle up close to the people I love, to laugh around bonfires, and to give back to my friends, family and the people I love. One of my favorite ways to express gratitude is by giving small gifts! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Bake someone a delicious fall treat, like this pumpkin bread above.
There is nothing better than baking during the fall season, except maybe eating the baked goods. I love giving friends or even strangers baked goods because it lets them know you were thinking about them and you put love and hard work into the gift. They’ll appreciate it so much, besides who doesn’t love pumpkin bread!
Give someone the scent of fall.
Brock says I have a bit of a candle obsession, but I can’t help it. I love filling my house with the scent of fall and there are no better candles to do that with than Chalkfull of Love’s. She has the cutest mugs and candles but I think the candles make perfect gifts because they smell delicious and your friends will be able to enjoy them all throughout the fall. Unless they are like me and burn them all day and need to buy more weekly.
Give a meaningful piece of jewelry.
For your girlfriends or sisters, jewelry is always a great idea! Dainty pieces are my favorite gifts because they never go out of style and they dress up all of your outfits just in time for those Holiday parties! 31 bits is an amazing jewelry company that creates opportunities for women all over the world. They make the cutest pieces and every time your friend or loved one wears it they’ll think about what it means and the difference they make for women.
Give your favorite book and schedule a date to discuss it.
Fall is a great time to sit by the fire and curl up with a good book so your loved ones are sure to appreciate a gift like this. This is also a great gift idea for someone you want to see more of because it gives you both a chance to get together and connect over something you read together! I’m currently reading a great book called The Irrestistable Introvert, give it a read and recommend to a fellow Introvert!
Give a gift that gives back.
There is nothing better than sharing the gift of giving back and there is no better company that does so than The Little Market. Not only do you get to give someone a wonderfully cute present but you get to make a difference and make them feel like they made a difference too. The Little Market has everything from kitchen stuff to tote bags to children’s toys. You are guaranteed to find something for all of your loved ones on their site.
