Things I love: Becca's Gift Guide

I absolutely LOVE this time of year: the gatherings with friends and family, decorating our little town home, and celebrating true Hope entering the world!  Here's a list of some of my favorite things to give during the holidays:

1. The Greatest Gift:  This is by far the best advent devotional I've read!  I am loving getting to read the story of Jesus' lineage and just be reminded of how creative God really is!  

2. Noonday Jewelry: ladies if you haven't heard of this company, check them out!  This company is only a few years old, and was birthed out of an adoption mom's quest to fundraise for her African adoption.  She brought back jewelry from Africa to sell as a fundraiser, and the pieces were such a hit that she founded a whole company based upon employing women in third world countries to make gorgeous pieces.  They also give a portion of their proceeds from trunk shows to fund adoptions.

3. Tom's Shoes: Most of you have heard of this shoe company that gives a pair of shoes to a child in a third world country for each pair of shoes you = win!  These wedge booties are the most comfortable shoe I own!

4. ValMarie papers:  This small company is run by a stay at home mom/designer. She crafts wedding invitations and these beautiful gratitude journals.

5. MayBooks:  If you love designs, and love notebooks, you will LOVE this company.  They design fun notebooks and stationary...

6. Deco Raleigh: Just visited this downtown Raleigh store for the first time and it is full of really fun local goods: jewelry, signage, mugs, beer glasses, etc.  You won't leave that store empty-handed, I can guarantee it!  I really love this Raleigh sign that they have:

7. Videri Chocolate:  I mean seriously, anything that's chocolate with sea salt is a winner in my book! This cute little downtown Raleigh chocolate shop is such a charm!  They also host small parties in their space - would be perfect for a wedding or baby shower!
More important than all these gifts though, is the sweet time with the ones you love this holiday! Soak it up!
