One of the greatest joys of the holidays comes with giving. Over the years, I’ve fallen in love with the gift-giving experience, as it’s a fun way to share our love with others (while making them feel special). Not to mention, seeing the joyful look on someone’s face when they’re surprised to receive the perfect gift! It’s a win-win for everyone. But don’t just take my word for it…
Did you know that it’s scientifically proven that gift-giving boosts your own happiness? Giving gifts activates endorphins and dopamine in your brain. These natural chemicals are part of the body’s reward system and work to make you feel good. So, when you give someone a gift, it results in making you both feel good. No wonder they call it “spreading joy” because that’s what you’re literally doing!
Whether you’re shopping for the home-entertainer, the DIY-er who loves to get crafty, or even the fashion & beauty lover – here are 5 inspiring holiday gift ideas for the gals in your life.
That’s not all! One lucky reader will win a gorgeous gift that will surely put a smile on her face this season.
