2017 Gift Guide

2017 Gift Guide

The holiday season is here and it’s my favorite time of year!  GIVING is one of the ways I pay it forward and it’s so important to me that it became a key part of my motto:  LIVE. GIVE. SERVE. GROW.

Here are 12 of my favorite things and go-to gifts for 2017!

Favorite Gifts of 2017
  • 01
    This year, I’m focused on things that just work.  You know, things that you can count on and not fuss with?  Well, this is one of the favorite tools in our household.
  • 02
    Don’t want to be consumed by more things this year?  We hear you!  In my family, we love giving the gift of experiences.  Whether it’s something big like a day skiing or something small like a movie night with mom, experience coupons allow you to share what’s most meaningful…your time and love.

    Selfie Light

    Let your best-selfie shine with a selfie light.  Honestly, this will be your best friend and greatest tool for looking great.  I use mine all the time to combat the tired and wrinkled look when on camera.  This is the one I use!

  • 04
    Every year since I was a kid, our family always donates an animal through the Heifer program.  If you haven’t heard of it, this is an awesome way to help children and families around the world receive training and animal gifts that help them become self-reliant.

    Complete a Holiday-Boo with Poinsettias

    I love fresh flowers and Poinsettias just feel like Christmas to me.  We’ve created a new tradition in our family.  It’s similar to “Boo-ing” people at Halloween, but instead, we spread the holiday spirit buy leaving a gorgeous Poinsettia with this poem on all the doorstops in our neighborhood.

    Mission Entrepreneur Gift Guide

  • 06
    Why not give back to the families of those who have given it all.  I love the Knight of Heroes organization, a wilderness adventure camp for the children who have lost a parent in military service.  You can learn more about their mission here.
  • 07
    We are animal lovers in our house!  Canines for Veterans is a “Triple Win” non-profit organization that rescues shelter dogs, reintegrates veterans with job training skills by teaching them to train the dogs, and revitalizes the lives of wounded veterans by providing them with a trained service animal.

    Ready to conquer your fears and let your dreams come true?  Pick up a copy of our bestselling book and learn how to apply secrets from military life to launch your next idea.  All profits from book sales go back to supporting military spouses!

  • 09
    We seriously love couldn’t love R. Riveter and their bags any more (watch the Secrets of R. Riveter Sucess here).  In fact, these are often my go-to gifts.  Help your guy stay organized with the R. Riveter Valet.  While you’re there, check out their awesome bags and grab something special for yourself!

    Whether you are trying to get a great selfie, on a video call, or testing out Facebook Live, you need your phone to stay in place!  Here’s the tripod that I love and I’m telling you…it works great!

    Why not travel to your next meeting (or Starbucks) in style and protect your laptop in one of these gorgeous covers.  I love the simple design, elegant feel, and pocket in the back for business cards and cords.

  • 12
    Let’s face it, who has time to deal with a dead phone battery?  I use this Mophie battery pack and it keeps me from having to worry about recharging my battery throughout the day.  And better yet, there are no cords that to drag around!
