Arbequina Olive Tree, 6″ Pot
An Arbequina Olive Tree is an evergreen, long-lived, beautiful fruit-bearing ornamental with soft gray-green foliage. Potted in growing containers and are self-fruitful (produce both male and female flowers on the same tree). This variety is revered as both a table olive – for its mild, buttery & lightly fruity flavor – as well as an oil olive for its high oil concentration. Olives hang well on the tree & ripen at different intervals.
Ficus Ginseng Bonsai Tree, 6″ Pot
The Ginseng Ficus is most striking in appearance because it grows thick roots that stay exposed above the surface of the ground. The tree grows oval-shaped, dark green leaves. The trunk of the ginseng ficus is thick and bulbous, reddish-gray, and has tiger-like stripes. The leaves grow densely, giving you a thick canopy.

Have an aspiring content creator in your life? They’ll love this Canon EOS M50 Mark II Content Creator Kit, which includes a mirrorless 4k vlogging camera, EF-M 15-45mm lens, tripod grip, and stereo microphone. It made our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide because it has everything your creator needs to get started.
Apple iPad Pro 12.9 in (2021)
As an early Christmas present this year, I bought myself and my oldest teenager a 256 GB Apple iPad Pro 12.9 in. They needed one for their art (they are fantastic and make a killing on Red Bubble!), and I use it extensively for writing and editing my novel. Don’t forget to get an Apple Pencil, too.
Oculus Quest 2
I bought our family an Oculus Quest 2 specifically because I wanted to use the Supernatural app (kind of like Beat Saber, but for exercising in super cool destinations). What I didn’t count on was my husband using it so much! It’s really perfect for the whole family and makes the perfect addition to our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide.
Blackstone 28″ Flat Top Gas Grill Griddle
If you follow any foodies on TikTok, you’ve probably heard all about Blackstone griddles. I just knew it had to go on our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide; it makes cooking for a crowd super easy (it’s also perfect for meal prepping!). They make electric griddles, but this one has two propane burners. With five stars and over 8,000 Amazon reviews, it’s hard to go wrong.
Hush Hush Ritual Bath Salt
A blend of Epsom salt, pink Himalayan salt, lavender flower, lavender essential oil, calendula, and chamomile flowers equals the perfect ritual bath salt to use before bed. Hush Hush Ritual Bath Salts are made in small batches in Denver, Iowa (the mile-wide, not the mile-high). It made our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide because I think we can all agree—we need as much relaxation time as possible.
Peepers Blue Light Glasses
At my last eye doctor visit, they checked my eyes for damage and mine had it moderately. I asked what caused this and if I could fix it; Too much screen time (I’m a writer, and am at my computer all day), and yes — I can fix the damage by reducing blue light exposure. So, I set out to find blue light glasses.
Enter Peepers; The price point is more than ideal at $27 a pair and the quality of their frames is even better. All of their glasses feature a spring hinge that allows you to put on your glasses with one hand. Plus, anti-scratch coating, distortion-free, blue light filtering lenses that also provide UV400 protection.

Last November, I had COVID while I took an online cooking class. It worked out perfectly because I didn’t have to even leave the house.
The Ravenhood Series
This trilogy is complete, and when I tell you it will eat you up and spit you out, believe me. I read The Ravenhood Series in a matter of days over a year ago, and it doesn’t matter where I’m at; I could be in the car, at the grocery store, or waiting for my kid’s sports games to start. If my mind drifts to this series, I will tear up and feel an ache in my chest. There’s a reason Kate Stewart’s fan Facebook group is called Recovery Room; we need it.
Book 2, Exodus, will absolutely gut you. But please keep reading — book 3 is bittersweet and wraps up beautifully. This is also on Kindle Unlimited, and is the perfect addition to our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide.
A Court of Thorns and Roses Series
I average reading about a novel a day, so people like to ask my recommendations. A Court of Thorns and Roses is incomplete — more books are coming — but it is one of my absolute favorite series and I’m actually rereading it yet again. It made me fall in love with the fae, and I think you will, too. You can get the set here, or you can download it on your Kindle. If I re-read a series, you know it has to go on my 2021 Holiday Gift Guide!
