Sponsored post

It's that time of year again, and you know what that means....It's time to start shopping for the holidays!  Here are some great gift ideas that you're entire family will love. 

Snuggle up this season with this gorgeous Alpine Infinity Scarf.  The soft chunky diamond and cable pattern knit is finished off with tassels.  It will quickly become a fall favorite!  Available in cream (shown), mid grey, tweed and wine.

Cuteness overload!  This is one of Dotoly's most popular animal rings and I can see why.  It is made in the shape of an elephant that wraps around your finger in silver.  Also available in sterling silver and other colors in their store.  

This breathtaking candy cane theme deco mesh holiday wreath is created with metallic red and silver candy cane striped deco mesh.  You will find many different types of red, white and silver ribbons.  There are two large wrapped shatterproof peppermint ornaments with adorable marabou trim, two large fuzzy snowflake ornaments, as well as large red and silver ball ornaments.  Wow...what a stunning handmade creation for your home this year!

Let the beautiful light from Harmony Lanterns brighten your room.  These lanterns will create a moving light show on the paper walls of the lamp.  They are crafted by hand with 100% natural material.  The heat generated from the light bulb in the lamp rises through the vents at the top of the insert and causes it to turn, casting light through the colorful insert.  This company offers over 70 inserts to choose from in a variety of colors.  There is something for everyone!

Simple, Stylish and Beautiful!  These wonderful reverse hoop earrings are available in 14kt Gold Fill, Sterling Silver, Copper and Niobium metals.  These hoops feature a clasp-less design and are one of the most comfortable pairs of hoops you will ever buy!  Available in multiple sizes and colors.

Full lips are always in!  This enhancer is the largest of the three and the only round one.  It is best used for an overall mouth fullness.  Because of its size and shape it encompasses both the top and bottom lips at the same time.  This new ultra-lightweight design features a more modern look and the same great results!  

Put a little sparkle in your hair!  This antiqued brass vintage hair clip has been handcrafted with each stone hand glued in place.  You will love the look and feel of this sturdy and elegant hair clip.  This would be perfect for a wedding, prom or holiday party.  This clip has a very strong hinge that creates a firm hold to secure hair in place.  Each clip measures 5 inches in length.  Available in other colors in their Etsy shop!

Acure Organics has done it again with their affordable and phenomenal argan oil!  Now available in Citrus Ginger, Rose and Coconut with a handy pump top.  This true super food is rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and proteins.  Argan oil helps fight lines, repairs imperfections, minimizes scars and stretch marks; all while restoring texture, elasticity and tone.  This lightweight oil absorbs very easily into the skin and smells delicious.  Your skin will thank you!

Who doesn't need a cord buddy in their life?!  Now you can keep your cord off the floor.  This smiley face buddy will hold your cell phone, bluetooth and other gadget cords in place.  Your cord won't fall behind your desk, table or dresser.  Genius idea!  Available in many other designs, too!

This festive Cascade Christmas wreath captures the magnificence of its namesake.  Accented by a velvety red ribbon, the pastel blue juniper berries, pale yellow incense buds, noble fir, and princess pine cascade into a burst of color and fragrance that makes this a favorite year after year.

Show off your loved ones with this beauty!  This lovely necklace features a selection of charms that can be customized for each family member.  Have fun personalizing this with your own names, words and initials.  You will receive five sterling silver, copper and brass personalized tags, a sterling silver vintage skeleton key and lock charm all dangling from a sterling silver box or ball chain in the length of your choice.

Cali and Me - Gold Glitter Headband & Silver Glitter Headband - $6.95 each

Your darlin' will dazzle her way through the holidays with these precious headbands.  They are perfect for holiday photo shoots and everyday wear.  Each headband features a fun glitter bow on a polka dot elastic.  Visit this Etsy shop to see all of their creative headband designs!

Looking for an organic, all natural deodorant that really works?  Here is your solution!  Primal Pit Paste contains baking soda that neutralizes the bacteria that cause odor and organic arrowroot powder helps you feel dry while allowing you to still sweat and release toxins.  These powders are mixed in a base of moisture rich, anti-microbial organic coconut oil and organic shea butter to soothe skin.  There are NO aluminum, parabens, fragrances, corn, gluten, GMOs or toxic chemicals in this formula!  Available in unscented and a variety of scents.

Money matters!  This multiple award winning moneybox is a timeless gift that will inspire and help teach your children about money.  This is a wonderful allowance tool with three separate colorful containers labeled share, spend and save.  Features removable acrylic lids and a family guide and passbook.

This oh-so-relaxing bedding features an inviting and colorful floral print of green, blue, purple, and yellow designs on an ivory comforter/duvet.  This comforter/duvet reverses to a green and ivory stripe which runs north to south.  All pieces are 100% cotton for a comfortable feel.  Breathe new life into your bedroom with this versatile set.

Nothing says forever like this 14k gold filled delicate hand wire wrapped eternity necklace.  The eternity pendant is hand formed using gold plated tarnish resistant wire.  You select the length of your necklace.  This would make a stunning layering piece.

Showertime will never be the same again!  Just look at these adorable gentle-flow handheld showerheads for kids.  Make bath time fun and help get your little one to want to take bath or shower.  These showerhead kits come in five different styles.  Each showerhead kit saves water with its gentle 1.5 gpm flow rate.  They are compliant with all EPA-inspired conservation laws and offer a soothing spray that is gentle enough for infants and toddlers.

Rub a dub dub....this stretch wash cloth expands to reach your back with just the right texture for an efficient shower experience.  This amazing cloth stretches to three times its size to reach all those hard to reach places on your body.  If features a natural cotton base layer with nylon exfoliating loops, and it reminds you when it's time to be replace with its worry-free replacement indicator.  Love Daily Concepts?  Be sure to let them know by leaving a review on their website!
