It’s the Most Wonderful Time of The Year!
…And it deserves the most wonderful kind of gift-giving. With recent fires, floods and other disasters around the globe, not to mention pollution from plastics and other toxins, the elephant in the room begs one question: “How can I gift without causing more harm to the environment?” Case in point, a recent article in Business Insider stated, “The fashion industry emits more carbon than international flights and maritime shipping combined.” This season is the best time to Gift with Intention!
First, what does “gifting with intention” mean? Websters defines intention as “an aim or plan.” An intention is a vibrational thought that propels out into the world and continues to circulate. Energy is always in motion, and when the season is centered around spending time with family and giving gifts, why wouldn’t you want to give the best energy to someone you love?
Sustainable Gifts are the Best Gifts
Sustainability has become a major discussion and concern. More and more companies are using less plastic to package their products and making their “Green Footprint” better. If you intend to buy something new for your gifts this season, take a look at where you are spending your “energetic” money. Your money holds an intention, so your dollars do count when you exchange energy on the monetary level.
The Law of Physics says everything is vibrating. So how can you build on a regenerative energy system instead of just sustaining the current one? Here are a few ways you can gift with the highest intention this year.
- Buy second-hand treasure. You could find a true gem. We’ve all heard stories of people finding thousands of dollars sewn into fur coats, rare jewelry, and ancient artifacts at the thrift store. I have never met someone who doesn’t love a vintage item. Some of the best compliments I receive are when I am wearing something I got from thrifting. You start to see a luxurious lifestyle through a new lens when you wear something someone put abundant intention into. From art to jewelry to books to household goods and even clothing, you just can’t beat that vintage vibe.
- Support companies who reflect the change you want to see. Find a brand and follow the CEO. What are they passionate about? It is your place to do the research to see where your dollars go and who they support, if you want to raise your vibration. These are the kinds of companies to support with your dollars, your gifting, and your shared intentions.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving
Reiki can give someone you love an energetic healing therapy. It makes an ideal gift because the receiver continually benefits from it. This healing art is an ancient Japanese healing modality that works on the Meridien energy system of the body, similar to acupuncture but there are no needles. It says that the source energy within everything can be guided to balance the body in multiple ways. Reiki never stops working once someone has their first session. A gift card for a session is the perfect gift for that family member or friend who gets that weekly massage or is into or curious about energy healing!
However you choose to gift, be mindful this holiday season and give with the intention to bring joy. Remember, it’s always the thought that counts.
