4 Gifts to Give Yourself This Year

I am not sure about you, but I’m ready to give to everyone else, while also focusing on myself this year. I work hard and I deserve a little TLC for myself, as well. Here are a few gifts to give yourself this year:

Give yourself the gift of...


Drop Earrings from Aurate is a great gift to give yourself. Aurate sells ethically-sourced jewelry made from 14K Gold, 18K Gold, & Vermeil. Their fine jewelry is designed to be worthy of the women who wear it. Their Proud Pearl Earrings is a great example. Though the elements are enduring, the effect is pure modernity. An astonishing 12mm pearl beams from beneath a row of 12 white diamonds in a mesmerizing contrast. Against the timelessness of the materials, the pendant's graphic form firmly establishes this as a future-proof classic. Fine jewelry deserves fair prices. And so do you. All of their jewelry is born, raised, and handmade in NYC. No import taxes, no unnecessary middlemen, no insane markups. And they produce pieces on a made-to-order basis so that you don’t pay for extra inventory costs. Because they love gold, but not price tags. Plus you can feel good about making a purchase from Aurate. Aurate believes in paying it forward. Which is why they give a portion of every purchase to support developing literacy of students in the US.


As moms, we spend so much time and effort taking care of other people in our lives. Sometimes, we need to take care of ourselves, too. It’s essential, actually, and I’m not sure why we don’t put more of a focus on it every single day. There are so many ways that you can give yourself relaxation. Go to the spa and get a massage, or even a pedicure. A facial is also amazing! Go on a solo staycation. While you are “gone,” treat yourself to a really nice dinner, a movie in bed, and maybe even a morning or two to sleep in - as long as you want! Doesn’t that sound amazing? If you cannot get away, give yourself time to curl up with a book and a hot beverage.

A strong relationship

The gift of a strong relationship will not just benefit you now, but it will benefit you for months and years to come. As an individual, as a partner, and as a parent, a strong relationship is everything. It needs to be healthy and you need to be able to communicate with one another. If you do not have a strong relationship, this would be the PERFECT gift to give yourself. Looking for a counselor?

A home upgrade

Have you been wanting to update your home all year-round, but you haven’t wanted to treat yourself, or spend the extra money? Well, with the holidays coming up, it’s a great time to get those upgrades done. Treat yourself and do all the things that you’ve been putting on the back burner. Trust me - it’s a great way to spend your money.


We don’t give ourselves enough credit. We can be so mean to ourselves for our mistakes, and be so compassionate to a friend for that very same mistake. It’s great you can see the good in others and be kind to them, but what about being kind to yourself? You deserve that same kindness and love that you so easily give to others. Know that you are on this earth for a reason. You have purpose, talent, beauty, and so much more to share with the world. That is the gift that I hope all of you give yourself this holiday season, the gift of knowing your worth, the gift of self-love, the gift of setting boundaries, the gift of putting yourself first, the gift of practicing self-care and seeking help rather than holding onto your feelings, the gift of choosing you again and again, even when it is messy or confusing.

This year has been draining, traumatic and exhausting. But you have gotten through it. You have purpose and you are beautiful. You may not believe it, but every moment you walk this earth, you add something to it that wouldn’t have existed had you not been here. How incredible is that? To realize that the world is better, because you are in it. I hope you see that you are a gift and the gifts you add to this world. You are a gift to me. This holiday season and beyond, I hope you see your worth. I hope you get help when you need it. I hope you take care of yourself. Always remember that self-love is the best love, and you can do anything, if you just begin believing in yourself.
