Holiday Gift Tips

Hello Friend,
It is the most wonderful time of the year! And….at the same time, it can be stressful as you are trying to think of nice gifts to give to those you care about. Here are a few tips on giving thoughtfully this holiday season. The key thing to remember is not to give them what you think they want, it’s important to give them what they want.
We are 23 days away from Christmas! Please enjoy 15% off your entire order until December 6th using code "giving".


  1. ASK: for their top 3 wish list items or ask them if they have a wishlist to share with you.

  2. SNOOP: Check their social media accounts to see what they have pinned or shared recently. It should give you some ideas throughout the year. Add the gift ideas on your phone notepad.

  3. FAVORITE PLACES: Find out the places they frequent and get them a gift card (restaurants, shopping, nail salon, massage, or coffee shops).

  4. LISTEN: If you listen, you’ll pick up on things they mention that they like or need.

  5. LOOK: This ties into the listen tip, but if you are in their home, keep an eye out for what they like or need. Complementing or commenting on what you like in their house will get them to open up about what they’d like to get for one of the rooms.

  • Donating: Minnieology donates to nonprofits throughout the year. It’s a great way to spread cheer and provide a tax-deductible donation. Love animals? Please donate to my dear friend, Lisa, to Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue and Sanctuary non-profit organization. It’s perfect with the end of the year coming!

  • Holiday Shipping Cut Off: The last day to place an order is December 6th to ensure delivery by Friday, December 24th. Handmade gifts take time and we want to consider the labor shortages and shipping delays My boxes have been known to take the scenic route at times.

  • Gratitude: It’s been a tough year for me personally, and Minnieology has helped me work through the ups and downs of life. I truly enjoy creating candles, reed diffusers, personalized gifts, and gift boxes for the special people in your life. Thank you for your support, I literally do a happy dance when I get an order email.


Happy Holidays to you and yours!
