Yes, I am talking about me. This gift guide is for me.
No, JK. But we all know a few people in our lives who love things that may not be on any NORMAL person’s list.
Before you go digging in your bottomless bag of goodies, Agatha - Check out this list I put together for holiday shopping for those weirdos you know and love!
1) Not your typical planner or journal
Don’t just go to your local Walmart or Staples and pick up a plain ol’ business agenda or notepad. Google bullet journals or creative planners like Passion Planner or Bullet Journal. These aren’t just pen and paper to usual beings like myself, they are a great way to get creative juices flowing and break down daily, monthly, even yearly goals.
2) Books about self love/care, crystals, metaphysics, space, (anything out of the ordinary really)
Who doesn’t love a good book? This person probably won’t pick up a 50 Shades book but they will pick up something on a deeper level, something that opens their mind and soul. Shop in the self help or science section when shopping for this guy/gal. Anything you pick will probably be useful to them and spark interest in one way or another!
3) Crystals, stones, gems
No, we are not talking about a pet rock like you has as a kid. The study of crystals and stones has become very popular, especially with spiritual people like these. We love learning about their meanings and healing properties. Head to Pinterest and research them individually - find the ones, you think your person will benefit most from. Sometimes you can find stone shops in your area where you can talk to someone who knows more about crystals and buy in person. We love having these trinkets around, it gives us a sense of peace!
4) Timeless clothing or accessories from local thrift stores/garage sales
This may seem time consuming or even cheap/not sanitary but you can really find some awesome, one-of-a-kind pieces in these spaces. Look for a unique purse, a wild pair of shoes, or even just a rad hat - us cool kids really appreciate something that has a story behind it or something that has traveled. It makes it more special that way.
5) Anything skincare or health related
Self-care is my middle name (it’s actually Nicole but I would switch it if I could)! On the top of my list you can find face masks, candles, beauty tools and spa treatments. Not only do us, “weird people” enjoy different, unique things - we like to pamper ourselves too. We see self care as a way to take care of not just our outer self but our minds and our souls. It comes full circle.
So, what is the take-away from this - THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! You won’t go broke shopping for these peeps, that’s for sure but make sure you put some thought into it. Do your research, ask other weirdos and remember, keep it simple.
Happy Holiday Shopping!
