So, I was getting my nails done yesterday…
And my nail tech (shout out to Nails by Aspen) asked me:
So, have you done your Christmas shopping yet?
Now, I’m not gonna lie – I’m a late Christmas shopper. But I don’t stress about it because I love to give experiences and gifts from friends and/or local places.
No fighting my way through a mall with that plan (thank goddess)!
So I thought I’d round up some of my favorite experiences and gifts from people I know, love, and have purchased from or worked with.
Any of these gifts are guaranteed to make you a legend in the world of gift giving (in a good way…not in an aunt that always gives you a suitcase full of drugstore make-up kind of way).
I’ll start with the ones that are the most time sensitive!
These offerings you can give separately or bundle together for amazing gift to get someone’s year started off with the magic of purpose and a good plan!
Here are all the links for your convenience, followed by the separate items:
Living my Soul’s Agenda
2024 Planner & Workshop
This Holiday Gift is time sensitive because Ani Anderson, author of Find Your Soul’s Agenda has created a 2024 planner so you can plan your year according to your Soul’s Agenda.
You can grab copies for all your besties (don’t forget you!) for $13.99 (maybe you start a book club…a planner club?!)
This planner is based on the Find Your Soul’s Agenda process – an assessment Ani developed (I’m linking the book below).
As someone on a life-long journey to know and relate to my Self better, I love love love a good assessment (from Meyer’s Briggs to the Enneagram to Human Design bring it!).
And as much as I love a good assessment, I also love a good planner!
A planner based on an assessment??? Shut the front door!
Plus, she’s hosting a 90 minute workshop on December 16th that will show you exactly how to use the planner – for free! Bonus: Everyone who comes to the workshop gets a copy of the planner.
The workshop will cover:
1) Define the 7 areas of life that you should always include in your annual planning
2) Outline the weekly review process that will help you feel like you’re making progress and moving forward with your life goals
3) Notice the #1 area around purpose that keeps most people stuck all their lives and see how to avoid that pitfall
Haven’t been through the Soul’s Agenda process yet? I got you covered six ways to Sunday (well, two at least)

Handmade Ceramics and Nature Photography, by Earth Witchery
Fucking Trinket Trays (buy two as gifts and give two fucks!)
Sara’s Etsy shop, Earth Witchery is full of the 👏 most 👏 amazing 👏 pottery and nature photography. You can check out her amazing work at this link.
Sara is a multi-media artist, primarily working with clay and nature, who uses creativity as a practice for meditation and nervous system regulation. She is passionate about how the act of creating with our hands can expell trauma from the body. She can be found at the pottery wheel throwing cauldrons for witchcraft, or outside somewhere in the dirt.
Her Fucking Trinket Trays are coming soon! In the meantime, she has beautiful ceramics and photos of her nature mandalas. They’re truly breath-taking!
Fun fact, Sara and I worked on one of her dreams several years ago and when I asked her at the end of her session what she would do to honor the dream, she said, “take a pottery class.”
Next Up: Fake Boyfriend for the Holidays
My dear friend Indigo Esmonde wants to be your Fake Boyfriend for the Holidays with either their Rom Com Classic, Rom Com with a Twist, or Identity Switch packages.
Here’s how they described their performance art for the Holidays packages:
It happens every December. You think you’ll be getting an engagement ring, but no, not this year. Instead your boyfriend dumps you just before Christmas. Again! You know you can’t go home fiancé-free. You have no choice. So you stop in at the corner café, grab the first stranger who looks, if not employed, at least employable, and convince him to be your fake boyfriend for the holidays.
On the long drive out to the suburbs, you discover you both patronize the same artisanal cheese shop and you share a disdain for reality golf shows. He seems promising! But midway through the first luncheon at your parents’ farmhouse table, he insults your sister’s famous green bean casserole, breaks the 200-year old Christmas ornament that inspired a minor Whitman poem, and embarks on a forty-five minute monologue about overland irrigation in Portugal in the 1500s during which he expresses some peculiarly offensive ideas about Early Renaissance aqueduct construction. It’s not even Christmas Eve yet, and the whole holiday is ruined.
There’s a better way. Let me be the man of your dreams!
I’m a trained actor, an award-winning drag king, and a co-founder of the Institute for the Calibration of Reality. More importantly, my Sun is in Sagittarius while my Jupiter is in its domicile in Pisces.
I will be your Fake Boyfriend this festive season. You can design the perfect man (me) to attend up to 5 hours of your family, friend, and workplace holiday events (as long as they take place online). Maybe you’re looking for a middle-aged professional croquet referee named Rufus who loves wine tasting, the zoo, and live-blogging Melbourne city council meetings. Or perhaps you want a wunderkind ad exec with a sexy French accent who can impress your parents with post-structuralist critiques of Eastern European decorative napkin-folding. This year, you really can get everything you want for Christmas.
Choose from three Fake Boyfriend Packages!
- Rom Com Classic: It’s a classic for a reason. We’ll have all kinds of funny mix-ups and jolly confusion because half the time I won’t even remember my own (fake) name! I’ll completely forget what gingerbread is, and you’ll swoon when I demonstrate my mediocre piano skills while singing White Christmas. We’ll leave out key details of our backstory and need to improvise. When your mother asks what I do for a living, you can say “architect” while I say “florist,” and then when your parents look hopelessly confused, you can say “he’s a floral architect!” while I say “I make small buildings out of snapdragons.” Or when your neighbor asks how we met, you’ll say “On a Caribbean cruise,” I’ll say “At the orthodontist,” and we’ll follow up with “It was a cruise with a lot of amenities!”
- Rom Com with a Twist: I’ll flirt with your sister, try to steal from your mother’s bank account, spend most of my time tweeting snarky comments about your family’s Christmas dinner, and generally be the worst boyfriend ever. I’ll put your present in a jewelry-sized box to get your parents’ hopes up, and when you open it you’ll find a Joni Mitchell CD. On Christmas Day I’ll announce that I got a big promotion, I’m moving across the country, and I’m breaking up with you. Just in time for you to get back together with your ex!
- Identity Switch: We’ll spice up the Rom Com Classic package with a double identity swap! I’ll be a prince who has switched places with a lookalike commoner so I can see how “real people” live, and you, believing me to be an unaccomplished sous-chef, will hire me to impersonate your fiancé. Halfway through our time together, I will reveal myself to be the Prince of San Liechtenbourg and your family will be thrilled they’re spending holidays with royalty!
Cost: $1495 USD plus expenses (e.g., heirloom emerald engagement ring, Christmas horse rental, hors d’oeuvre tray)
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will sell out quickly, so book your free Discovery Call to find out how to make the most of my Fake Boyfriend service!
