This Sentimental Etsy Buy Is the Best Gift I've Ever Given, and It's on Sale — 2018 Gift Guide

The holiday season is always a great time to reconnect with family and friends you may not see every day, get a little extra festive, and exchange heartfelt gifts. But it’s also a time to remember those loved ones who have passed on, and the good times you were able to spend together. And because that loss can feel extra apparent on celebratory days, I love giving sentimental gifts that help people feel a renewed connection to lost loved ones.

Last year, I gave my mom probably the best gift I’ve ever given: A beautiful necklace personalized with my grandma’s handwriting. And, today only, you can take 20 percent off your own engraved jewelry.

The Gimmicky Holiday Gift That's Actually Made My Life 10% Better

I am a naturally tired person. Therefore I love coffee in the mornings, tea (and sometimes coffee) in the afternoon, and coffee with Bailey’s in the evening. One thing I do not love about drinking warm liquids is that sometimes they are mean and tricky fiends. They hurt you if you’re too eager! They turn cold if you take your time! How rude!

14 Thoughtful Gifts for Your Kid's Teacher (That Aren't Starbucks Gift Cards) — 2018 Gift Guide

Though we should be thanking and showering our kids’ teachers with praise on the daily—sometimes right before holiday break is the only time we really get to slow down and remember to show our thanks.

But the thought process of gifting for your child’s educator usually goes like this: “I know my child can be a handful. I’m exhausted by just the one, so I imagine their teacher feels that way times at least 24… Starbucks gift card and cute mug it is!”

While this is a tremendously thoughtful gesture, many times you’re not the only parent who has come to this conclusion. “I know teachers who still haven’t used all their Starbucks cards from last year,” says Molly M., a preschool aide in Illinois. Allison S., an educator in Pennsylvania adds, “Definitely no mugs!”

In order to combat caffeine fatigue, I’ve asked my network of friends and family who work as teachers—as well as their colleagues—what they’d actually like to receive before holiday break this year.

Here, 14 gifts on their wish list this year:
