Hi Friends!

It’s one of my favorite episodes of the year…our Holiday Gift Guide! We’re posting it early this year to help you get a jumpstart on your shopping.

Joining me is none other than THE Joshua Palau. We spent the hour sharing our favorite gift ideas with y’all. Each of our lists have been researched and curated on our own, without sponsorship, or input from anyone else.

Don’t worry about grabbing a pen, we’ve got you covered. We’ve included all links mentioned in the episode for you below in the show notes.

We round out the episode by sharing some tips to keep your gift giving under control (make sure to download our holiday gift tracker!)

This is one episode you won’t want to miss!
