Give meaningfully, even if you’re out of time

 

 

Ah, yes. December. Christmas. Maria Carey’s and Jose Mari Chan’s season to rise, shine and thrive. Our 13th Month pays are in, and now that quarantine restrictions are letting up, intimate Christmas gatherings are being organized left and right. Finally, there’s more semblance of the past holiday seasons we enjoyed, including the anticipation of seeing our loved ones and celebrating a happy night with them. But for others, December brings forth a yearly struggle: choosing what gifts to give.

 

Here’s the thing. Some people aren’t too well-versed in the love language of gift-giving, and some are busybodies who can’t shop for gifts until the last minute. Whether you fall on either or both categories, don’t worry. We see you! Besides, gift-giving isn’t the easiest holiday task. However, that doesn’t mean you have to fall back on generic tokens for your loved ones—even if you’re running out of time. You can still give meaningfully with the help of a short and sweet cheat sheet. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

Direct the Scorpio in your life to a newfound obsession. And because this sign also loves being around nature, we have for your (and their) consideration: mushrooms. After all, why not focus their sights on growing a plant child of their own, especially one that needs care but yields tasty results?

Even the optimistic and expressive Sagittarius will appreciate any kind of bling that would enhance and go well with their personalities. Give them classic jewelry pieces made for keeps or eccentric, unique pieces that fit them like a glove to bolster their characters.

 

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19): Coffee Beans and Tea Bundles

 

Resourceful, tenacious and wise, nothing best pushes a Capricorn than a cup of great caffeine. So whether it’s an ultra booster from single-origin coffee beans or a soft nudge from ceremonial-grade matcha, Capricorn would greatly appreciate any (and all) sorts of caffeine sources.
