What I’ve learned in my 25+ years on this earth is that gift giving can sometimes feel more like a hot dumpster fire rather than a joyous part of the year. The stores are crowded, the kids are anxious, it’s cold outside, and all of that together can turn you into a giant stress ball.

There’s no need to freak out though, simple heartfelt gifts are just as beautiful as extravagant ones. People simply like to know that you’re thinking of them and that they’re loved. I like giving gifts that help people pamper themselves a little more than they usually do. Look out for your fierce lady friends, your bros, and family, and treat them to little gifts of relaxation and nourishment. Not sure where to go from there? Check out our list of ideas below. Rejuvenated smiles and faces are sure to follow.

Guinevere Ayers gayers@billingsclinic.org

My name is Guinevere and I’m a twenty-something woman, born and raised in Montana. After a brief hiatus to experience the big ol’ world (Nebraska… yeah… I know) I’m back in Big Sky country, navigating life and working at Billings Clinic as a consultant in the Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery department. I have degrees in Medical Anthropology and Biology. I’m a lover of lazy Sunday mornings, a connoisseur of mac and cheese and I often find myself in situations that make my mother laugh and say, “what am I going to do with you.” I previously struggled to find articles about topics I was interested in, that were fun to read, down to earth and informative. Somewhere along the fruitless journey of wandering the Internet I figured, why not just trial the things I’m interested in and write about it myself. Thus, I bring you my experiences with the aesthetic side of medicine and cosmetics. It's going to be a wild ride!
