With the holiday season in full swing, you might be starting to sweat about gift ideas for the engaged ladies in your life. You want to buy your fiancée, sister, daughter, or BFF something special but have no idea where to start? Don’t worry—I’ve got you covered!

Here are 8 meaningful holiday gifts for the High-Vibe Bride:

1. “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brené Brown

While your High-Vibe Bride may not consider herself a perfectionist, I can almost guarantee there will be times when she feels overwhelmed. She is trying to do everything “right,” not hurt anyone’s feelings, and manage an insane amount of societal pressure. The teachings in this book will offer her a great deal of comfort as she navigates what she desires for her wedding day. Trust me, this is a gift that she will keep forever. My copy is dog-eared, highlighted, and wrinkled with tears. It is a constant source of inspiration.

2. Desire Map Planner

There is no getting around the fact that there is a lot to juggle when you plan a wedding. But who says the focus needs to be on boring logistics? Danielle LaPorte’s 2018 Desire Map Planner is the perfect gift for the High-Vibe Bride looking to weave more fun and soul into her daily to-do lists.

3. The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit Bundle

My clients and I are obsessed with these cards. First of all, they are gorgeous. Second, the animal spirit theme makes these cards very relatable (when was the last time someone asked you what your spirit animal was?!). This is a fab gift for any High-Vibe Bride who is looking for inspiration, feels paralyzed with all of the decisions or is drowning in a sea of Pinterest pins. These cards offer clarity, insight and a whole lot of fun.

4. “The Wisdom of Sundays” by Oprah Winfrey

Holy cow, this book is pure magic. Each page is a work of art. It is the ultimate treat for the High-Vibe Bride to have nuggets of wisdom from so many incredible spiritual teachers and thought leaders like Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Arianna Huffington, Cheryl Strayed, and Brené Brown all in one place. I always recommend my clients decrease the amount of time they spend on social media (and even go on the occasional digital detox!) so this is a great way to satiate the craving for inspirational quotes while not getting sucked into the Instagram vortex.

5. Essential Oil Diffuser

An essential oil diffuser is a great addition to any High-Vibe Bride’s self-care toolkit because of the many benefits of aromatherapy such as better sleep, reduced stress, and improved mood. Leigh Winters, neuroscientist and holistic wellness expert, recommends the diffusers from Aromis Aromatherapy and Organic Aromas.

6. The Five Minute Journal

As someone who logically understands the benefits of journaling but has a tough time carving out time to sit down and write, I love the short prompts and positive framework of the The Five Minute Journal. This is a great mindfulness gift for the High-Vibe Bride who has a lot of thoughts swirling around in her head, is prone to second-guessing herself, or is having trouble falling asleep.

7. Houseplants

Nothing sparks more joy for me than a new houseplant! Houseplants are a wonderful gift for the High-Vibe Bride because they bring a sense of calmness and cheer into any space, and will be especially grounding amidst the chaos of wedding planning (bonus: some plants can also purify the air!). My personal favorites are spider plants, snake plants and good old philodendron. Plants are the gift that keep on giving because you can always take a snippet and replant for new plant babies!

8. Meditation App Subscription

While meditating is something most High-Vibe Brides know they “should” do to decrease their stress levels, developing a regular meditation practice can be difficult when you already feel pressed for time. What I emphasize with my clients is how valuable it is to do just two minutes of meditation each day. Two minutes! We can all do something for two minutes every day. I have found meditation apps like Calm to be helpful with sticking to a daily practice because of the variety of length, theme and style of the meditations. This is the third year I am using Calm and it has become a trusted resource. TC mark

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
