Hello everyone! This blog section will be in a couple of parts between now and December. So if you have a small business or know a small business that has one item that you think will be a good gift to give. And that you think it should be part of this section please do the following:

Now onto the gift giving guide!:
1. True heart Intuitive Tarot, Guide by the amazing Rachel True (@trueracheltrue ):
A couple of months ago Rachel True came out with this tarot card box set. This set reflects more her personal stance of tarot and how the each card in the tarot deck can have a different understanding for the person that it is being read for.

2. Cat Party Pet Portraits by Danielle Spires:
I came across @catpartypetportraits a month ago. Because it combines two of my favorite things: great retro looking portraits and animals. She has a studio in Los Angles, California (this gift giving idea is for people that live in LA and any close by that city) and her most popular package sessions are the Double Exposure Portrait and the Classic Session (with the option to add the Double Exposure with a Double Exposure).
When you book a session with Danielle you do have the option of having holiday props and/or holiday backdrops and she has added 3 new backdrops too.
To book a session link is below (also if you don’t feel comfortable going to her studio. She does have the option of coming to you if you are local to LA.):
3. Gumball Poodle:
I have been a fan of @gumballpoodle for the past three years and have many of their socks. My preferred style is the gym socks because they keep my feet warm. They are also unique in design and super comfortable. If you sign up to their mailing list you will get a discount code.
You also have the option of building your own gift box!!

4. I heart Unicorns perfume by A Beautiful Life (Instagram account: @abl_brands ):
“I Heart Unicorns perfume by A Beautiful Life –The Original Cult!I Heart Unicorns is an ode to your teenage years, inspired by myth and the power of belief – Where Barbie dolls and blacklight posters co-existed in your boudoir. Bright notes of Lemon, Peppermint, and Pomegranate are grounded by a fresh, earthy base. Mystery swirls and surrounds with Nag Champa and Frankincense. It’s all bubblegum, bridles, and girly fantasy.”A heady mix of lemon, peppermint, and pomegranate, the scent was designed to evoke memories of the ’80s and ’90s, and somehow, it totally succeeds. ” – Nylon
Available in 1 oz ($28) or 2 oz ($52)
lady.cult followers can get 20% off during the month of November with discount code ‘lady.cult’ “
One of my greatest things to love is perfume. It’s hard for me to just have a signature scent because I wear perfume based on my mood. And I am more than just one mood so why should I just have one perfume?
