It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only a few short weeks away. Each year it seems like the holidays sneak up on us and then we are left scrambling trying to find thoughtful, quality gifts at the last minute. After years of being ill prepared and giving presents that looking back we aren’t so proud of, we are finally thinking ahead and getting our shopping done early (major #adulting moment).
Sure, you can pick up an abundance of gifts at Macy’s or any neighborhood department store but do you ever find yourself questioning why you are buying tons of meaningless gifts? Giving gifts during the holidays has a rich history behind it filled with love, family and spreading joy but somewhere along the way, the intent behind gift giving has shifted. We think that the MORE gifts we give the happier the person unwrapping them will be. But is this true? Maybe the key to holiday gifting is to focus on giving fewer better gifts with more meaning rather than waisting money on a bunch of insignificant things.
You want the person that unwraps your present to feel special; like you put time, thought and energy into finding something that you know they will love. A difficult task we know! This is something that we found nearly impossible until we found Cuyana, a brand that carries a mother-load of thoughtful, high-quality goods. They have curated and designed the most delightful leather bags, cozy cashmere sweaters and the cutest personalized tassel keychains that you ever did see. Cuyana’s hope is to bring fewer, better gifts and to bring simplicity and meaning back to gift giving. And their little holiday hinting cards are such a cute way to drop subtle hints to your loved ones who might need a little help finding you a gift that you will truly love.
