Christmas Gift Guide
Olive_Tree_Sapling
Olive Tree Sapling

This is my absolute favorite gift to give and receive. For me, the olive tree is the symbol of eternal hope. Despite every challenge, the olive tree finds a way to live on. The olive tree’s trunk and branches die off many times over the course of their life and yet the tree never dies. The roots underground continue to send forth new trees over and over again. The olive tree is easy to take care of. You plant it in a pot in the sun in the summer and bring in the house in the winter.

“But I am like a thriving olive tree in God’s house; I trust in the faithfulness of God for ever and ever.” (Psalm 52:10).

Barefoot Dreams Covered in Prayer Throw

I absolutely love everything Barefoot Dreams makes. Last year, I gave myself and my mom their cozy robes. They also make yummy sweaters. This year I discovered their prayer blanket. They have several versions, each with their own messages: Covered in Prayer, Believe in Love and Trust the Journey.

Necklace
Heaven Inspired Classic Long Necklace

Crowning Jewels is a very special company. There are two ways you can order one of their hope necklaces. The first way (which I think is so cool!) is you send in the name of the person you will be gifting the necklace. The ladies at Crown Jewels pray over the name and ask God what encouragement this person needs. Next, they create a necklace with symbolic charms and words specific to this person. What I especially love is that they handwrite a note of encouragement to the person who will be receiving the necklace. The other way is to go in and pick words and charms yourself for the person you are creating the necklace! Either way, the necklace becomes this beautiful talisman of hope and encouragement.

Nativity_Set
A Savior is Born Nativity Set

I collect Nativity sets and I am excited to add this one to my collection. I especially love the menagerie of animals and the love note pinned to the stable.

Diffuser
Aromatherapy Light & Diffuser

I always love a gift that encourages more peace in one’s life. It is well documented the benefits of essential healing oils like lavender and roman chamomile to soothe the mind, body and spirit. This healing oil diffuser is extra special as it casts constellations of stars on the wall.

Book
25 Books Every Christian Should Read: A Guide to the Essential Spiritual Classics (A Renovare Resource)

I bought this book for myself for Christmas! I am always on the hunt for a new book that will encourage my spiritual life.

Wine_Membership
Scout and Cellar Organic Wine Monthly Subscription

My friend Shanna Belott from California introduced me to this company. The mission at Scout and Cellar is to work with winery’s committed to clean-crafted wine which means they don’t put any of the fillers, synthetic pesticides and chemical additives. They source organic, clean wines from all over the world. What I love is you get your own personal wine consultant! They really have a cool selection and they offer wine tastings!

Sweatpants
Beyond Yoga Sweatpants

I love the Beyond Yoga sweat pants. They are super cozy! They also have great yoga wear!

Bath&Body
Prosecco Bath & Body Set

My mom introduced me to Antica Farmacista and I love their hand and body wash and creams!

Painted_bottle
Hand Painted Bottle

Love One is a special company started by Suzanne Mayernick, a local Nashvillian with a saint’s heart! All funds raised at Love One go to help critically ill children in Uganda. I love these happy bottles for flowers for my kitchen table. They are hand-painted by women in Uganda!

Sleep_Machine
MARSONA Sleep Machine

We are nutty when it comes to sleep. I have been known to travel with my down pillow and box fan! This sleep machine was recommended by a friend and I am excited to try it out!

Wood_Puzzle
Van Gogh Wood Puzzle

These puzzles are such an amazing family gift. Each piece is hand-carved wood! This is not your ordinary puzzle!

pocket_cathedral
Pocket Cathedral

If you are looking for a gift for a friend or family member that could use some words of hope and encouragement,The Pocket Cathedral is a perfect gift. It is a collection of over 100 prayers that speak to and soothe the soul!

Gold_Heart_pot
Martha Stewart Heart Pot

This red pot with the gold heart makes me smile! I have gifted this joy pot to my nearest and dearest!

breakfast_from_paris
Breakfast In Paris

Heaven for me is French hot chocolate and a fresh baked croissant for breakfast! MEEL, created by my friend Marti Emch, is making it possible to indulge like the French with a simple Parisian breakfast (serves 6). Includes ½ dozen fresh baked croissants (or 1 dozen to serve 12) from Brightside Bakeshop packaged with thick “sipping” chocolate from French Broad Chocolate and Bang Candy marshmallows. Also makes a wonderful gift for your favorite teacher…. for a little extra they will package it in a wooden gift box and deliver straight to your recipient!

Love, Farrell

    I hope you have gotten to The Upper Room to see their Nativity Display. Over 100. We took the grandkids today. It was so wonderful.
