Call me old fashioned, but I love practical gifts. Something that will bring joy to the recipient every day. That’s why some of my favorite gifts to give and receive are pretty candles and fun mugs. There’s something luxurious about lighting a candle in the evening, and I love having brightly-colored mugs to wake up my morning cups of tea. I’m not a fan of saving something for ‘special occasions’ – I believe that we should indulge a little each day. Gifts don’t need to be expensive (everything on this list is under $30), but they can help make our days a little fancier.
