Willow and Sage Gift Subscription

Words: Danielle Williams

As the end of the year comes into view, we tend to have gift-giving on the brain. Some people truly love to give to others; others might not feel the same, finding the obligation more stress-filled. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite DIY and wellness-oriented gifts for this season. A handful of items bring out the snugly vibes this time of year — soothing oil diffuser blends, warm scented baths, feel-good reads, and such. As the outside world welcomes colder temperatures and shorter daylight hours, an inspiring story or homemade bath and body recipe can usher in comfort and cheer to brighten your home and heart. They’re small, inexpensive luxuries with a big impact.

This time of year reminds us to be grateful for the people in our lives and the blessings we have received. Over the next couple months, we hope you take the time to embrace those around you and shed a bit of light and laughter. Cheers to another year and the joy that gift-giving brings.


Here are some of my favorites:
