Boho driftwood dream catcher

Dream catchers are talismans of native and tribal cultures that were originally woven and hung above beds to catch bad dreams before they could surface. Legend claims that the good dreams pass through the webbing, while the bad dreams are caught in the webbing and are destroyed by the morning sun.

Symbolic gestures are your best friend this Christmas due to all that’s going on in the world. Bad dreams can be brought on by anxiety, trauma, or emotional discord, and dream catchers can ease the minds  of those suffering from chronic nightmares and stress.

Traditional dream catchers feature feathers and beads, but there are many other more modern designs that you can check out depending on who you’re gifting to!

Biscotti basket

Definitely one of the best gifts you can give to all your coffee drinkers, this gift basket offers several decadent and delicious flavors that will greatly enhance their Christmas morning coffee experience this year! This gift basket would also make a great addition to any company holiday party you might be attending.

In case you’re unfamiliar with biscotti, it’s a sweet and crunchy almond biscuit that originates from Italy and is typically dunked in coffee—kind of like Oreos and milk. What’s awesome about this gift in particular is that each biscuit is coated in chocolate and other toppings, whereas biscotti is typically served plain or with minimal embellishments.

There are countless different designs and methods used to decorate horseshoes. They can be turned into sun catchers, wind chimes, or just simple decorations like the ones pictured below!
