Let’s talk holiday gift ideas! Gift giving can be tough during normal circumstances, but after the many different challenges and hard realities that 2020 has delivered to all of us, it seems like an impossible task! What holiday gifts can you give that will feel meaningful? It seems like the usual stuff just doesn’t cut it this year.
That’s why we set out to create a gift guide that gives you thoughtful options. These gift ideas are meant to show people how strong they are, to offer hope, to acknowledge a loss from this year, and to bring some connection for the holiday season when many of us can’t be together in the way we usually do.
We know shopping is hard to do at the moment as well, so we really hope these gifts (which we’ll ship for you in a gift box, with a note, for free) helps make your holiday season a little easier. As we turn the page to 2021, send a visual reminder that positive changes and better days are ahead.
Beyond Flowers and Food 2020 Gift Guide
Send Coziness: Featuring the comfiest slipper socks that are made for lounging all day and a weighted heart "Love" stone this package says, "I love you, I miss you and I'm sending you a warm hug." Great for people who can’t be together on the holidays this year like they normally would. ($35)
Send Hope: Light glows warmly through the intricate patterns of this handmade lantern. The distressed birch pattern comes in white (a color associated with goodness). Birch is symbolic of beginnings, renewal and starting over. A candle is a symbol of the human spirit, reminding us that darkness can be brought into light. ($50)
Send to Thank a Teacher*: This year, teachers are putting in so much extra time and effort to restructure their teaching plans and create at-home and remote learning, so it feels like they deserve special recognition. What better way to show a teacher that you and your child care than by acknowledging them for the awesome superheroes that they are?! ($30) *female and male versions available!
Send a Boost of Strength: Fuel your favorite people with this adorable glass travel mug for their favorite caffeinated beverages and this sweet Strength heart that reminds them to keep pushing forward. It’s the perfect “little something” to propel them into 2021 after this exhausting and overwhelming year. ($25)
Send Lovebirds: For someone who lost a spouse, these wire birds are meant to be a visual reminder of companionship, partnership and love. Each bird in the pair complements the other but is a unique design, representative of a couple, and will look adorable on any shelf or side table. ($30)
Send a Calming Chime: This brass ornamental indoor wind chime is meant to be hung on a doorknob. The chime features an endless knot design, which is a Tibetan symbol that represents eternity, unity and the inter-connectedness of all things, and was believed to offer protection. The gentle ringing sound of the bell as the door opens is relaxing and inviting and is believed to attract good energy. ($40)

Send a Holiday Ornament: When they place this ornament on the tree, they can both take a quiet moment of reflection about the person who passed away, as well as recall your friendship and support of them during their grief – particularly this year, when many of us couldn’t be physically present for friends and family after a loss. ($20)
Send to a Sick Male: Get him to channel his inner strength with these fun Superman socks (with capes!) that will remind him of his strength and resilience. This gift package also contains a plush blanket in a masculine black and white check pattern and a lip balm made with goat's milk for ultimate hydration. ($60)

Send Warm Comfort: This gift contains a heat wrap designed to help her destress and relieve aches and pains in the neck and shoulders. And a hummingbird mug. Hummingbirds are spirit animals known for their light weight and adaptability. Although they may be tiny, they remind us that we have the flexibility and stamina to do far more than we think possible. ($55)
