Everything (yes, everything!) is now 30% off in the Cultivate Shop through Cyber Monday! Shop now!

I don't know about you, but I've been thinking more carefully than ever about gifting this year. With all the talk about pressures on the global supply chain, we've been chatting on Team Cultivate about our connection to stuff and the reality that whatever we bring into our lives (or send into the lives of others!) will require someone's time: time to use the item, time to care for it, time to keep it clean and organized. 

And you all know how we feel about time! It's precious! With that in mind, I'm proud to share with you our 2021 gifting suggestions for the beloved women and kids in your life. Not only do we believe these gifts are worthy of their time and space, but in many cases, they'll actually give them back their time, or help them to use it in a more life-giving way.

And that, my friends, will really put the joy in giving and receiving gifts this year. We hope you find something for your loved ones (or yourself!) on this list!

Intentional Gift Ideas for Women:

  • 2022 PowerSheets® Intentional Goal Planner | I'm listing this first because it has the power to be a life-changing gift. It does come with a caveat, though: it can be a hard gift to give "cold" if she doesn't have any context for what it is. So, reserve this for the woman who has talked about wanting to live with more intention, has shared her big goals with you, has expressed interest in your PowerSheets, or who you're committed to walking alongside as she gets started. (What a beautiful opportunity for connection!)
  • Intentional Action Card Decks | These, on the other hand, are a fantastic gift to give "cold"! No experience or prep time needed - just help her live with more intention in her faith, wellness, or parenting right away! Such a fun gift for a friend or sister.
  • A purposeful notepad | With several to choose from, you're sure to find one that's perfect for a teacher, babysitter, or neighbor. Tie it up with a big satin bow for some extra flair! My favorites for gifting: Meal Planner, desk-sized Intentional Weekly Planner, Weekly Sticky, and Daily Planner.
  • Cultivated Conversation Card Deck | This is it!! This is my go-to gift for pretty much everyone on my list this year. This colorful deck makes such a fun, high-impact gift, and the questions really are excellent. 
  • Little-by-Little Journal | This sweet journal is a perfect gift for a mom or mother-in-law, I think! Help her slow down and notice the good. Plus, the pattern and gold-foil details are just gorgeous!
  • A Carry All Pouch or Accessory Pouch stuffed with goodies | Lots of fun ideas for how to fill these here and here!
  • A Write the Word Bible Journal | Did I save the best for last? I might have. These simple journals are beloved in this community - the perfect way to get into the Word daily and grow her faith! Plus, they're gorgeous and feel very giftable!

Intentional Gift Ideas for Kids:

  • Girls Goal Planner | I have a feeling you know which girl in your life this would be the perfect gift for: the one who loves crafting. The one who loves details and to make a plan. The big dreamer. This planner was made by our team with so much love and thoughtfulness - she'll be in good hands with this in her backpack!
  • A Write the Word for Kids Bible Journal | Our beloved Bible journals, made short and sweet for the minis! Choose your theme: Original, Fruit of the Spirit, or Adventure.
  • Gracie's Garden book | This children's book by Lara is just irresistibly sweet. My own kids request it as their bedtime read at least once a week!

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Women:

I know many of us are used to grabbing cheap trinkets at Target for this category. But I have to say: choosing fewer, better things for my loved one's stockings has been a revelation in the past few years. These pint-sized gifts from the Cultivate would all be perfect, useful picks!

For more gifting ideas, head to our 2021 Gift Guide. It includes four new bundles - perfect for gifting to one special loved one or splitting up between several! And don't miss our gift wrap (it is seriously SO CUTE!) and accessories.

Finally, on behalf of our small but mighty team, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making us a part of your gifting strategy this year. We know your recipients, your time, and your money are all precious, and it means everything to us to have your support. Thank you again! 

Everything (yes, everything!) is now 30% off in the Cultivate Shop through Cyber Monday! Shop now!
