Hey Boho Beauties,
It’s finally here. The air is crisp, twinkly lights are twinkling, and let’s be honest: we’re all getting butterflies at the thought of fresh gingerbread men and seaming hot cocoa. It’s the season of giving all year round in Bohemia, but winter is grand- daddy gift giving time!
We had our first snowfall here in the mountains the other afternoon, and it had me daydreaming of all my favorite holidays gone by. I took time the fireplace to get cozy and think of the sweetest things I’d given to others in colored paper and bows, the special trinkets and gems I’d received; All of the places I’d been, and the special memories we’d created around the world.
As I sipped on my almond honey tea, I realized that my most favorite memories didn’t involve gifts at all. In fact, the greatest gifts I’d received weren’t things that had appeared in boxes or shining paper under the holiday tree, they were the moments that had memorable meaning in my mind.
Make it Meaningful
When you’re gifting your sweetie or fave gal pal think of your best memory with them, or the quality you value in them the most. See if you can reflect that memory or favorite thing in your oh-so-special gift to them. One of my most cherished holiday gifts was a snow globe Christmas ball that a girlfriend gave to me a couple of years ago. We used to take starry nighttime walks with her dog, Duke, laugh, and share our most special secrets. The snow globe reminded us both of those walks we’d taken and is still so very special to me. Choose a trinket that you enjoy picking just as much as your love enjoys receiving and they’ll value it forever!
Give a Memory
Instead of wrapping up a gift that may be forgotten about next year, take your pals or special sweetie some place magical and make a memory that will last for years and years to come! Think of your most favorite magical memory as a child, boho babe, and recreate it someplace even more enchanting! Think snowflakes, starlight, warm Christmastime drinks and all of your favorite loves
In a gyspy world life moves at the speed of light and our greatest loves can sometimes be worlds away. Your presence is the greatest gift that you can offer this season. Remember your best pals, sweetest loves, your special family (real and chosen), book that ticket “home” and give them your presence this holiday season. The simplicity of tea and a hug with your soul friends is beyond any gift that could be wrapped under the tree.
I hope your holidays are filled with meaning, memories and all of your favorite people, goddesses and gal pals!
Peace, Love and Magic from,
