With holiday season upon us, and the end of the year right around the corner, it feels bitter sweet. But it’s also an exciting time for new happenings and beginnings. From engagements to babies, there’s always an occasion where you need the perfect gift. I’m here with five gifts that will be perfect for any occasion, or that someone special on your holiday gift list.

Gift for Mommy-to-Be

Bringing a baby in to the world is one of the greatest joys in life. However, with that joy comes months of preparations, from getting the room ready, to buying little onesies and baby necessities. Why not give the new mother-to-be in your life one of the biggest necessities she will need? Bonding and time with the baby will be essential for both mom and the baby, and what better way to make it more special than with a Moby Wrap? As a new mom, when I first saw this wrap I knew I had to have it. What intrigued me most was the natural wrap that secured the baby like no other carrier. I love the close attachment that this wrap gives while wearing it, which benefits the baby in so many ways. I carried my daughter in this and I must say, it’s magic. It worked like a charm to sooth my baby when she was fussy and wanted to be near me, and wonderful when she fell asleep. It was warm and soothing not only for her, but comforting for me. Any mom-to-be will love Moby Wrap!

Gift for Bride-to-Be 

With the holiday season comes with family, friends, love and romance. It’s no surprise that most engagements take place during the holidays. Everyone knows a bride-to-be, and what perfect gift for her than a beautiful fragrance. For a bride, a fragrance is the perfect accessory to her already glamorous day. There’s no one better to bring you a wedding day fragrance than Reem Acra. For years, Reem Acra has been bringing us the finest of bridal gowns and dresses from red carpets to church aisles, and now she is giving us a glamorous fragrance. At first whiff, this fragrance smells like an sexy floral combination of some of my favorite notes including bergamont, jasmine, lily of the valley and peony. It’s the perfect gift for a bride-to-be with it’s gorgeous glass gold embellished bottle embossed with Acra’s trademark red dove insignia.

Housewarming Gift

Gift For Teacher

It’s my son’s first year in school, and it has been such a moving experience and a big change. I must say he has adjusted very well, and a lot of it is because of his wonderful teachers. The have been so nurturing and comforting to my son as he was adjusting, and I have so much gratitude.
