For many of us, 2018 has carried much joy, but also its fair share of loss, healing and heavy-lifting. Perhaps someone on your shopping list this year could use a little extra light and love to bring encouragement and hope for the new season ahead.
Before we enjoy my curated gift guide below, I wanted to also suggest giving the gift of support this Christmas by making a donation to the Malibu Foundation. As many of you know, our local community has been ravished by wildfires and is in great need of your support and prayers.
