    Holiday Gift Ideas For An Asheville Mom


    Our amazing community in Asheville, NC has many options when it comes to giving gifts anytime of year. This year my list includes things that a mother of two young children would look forward to from my favorite Asheville businesses and outings.


    ♥At the top of my list is a monthly subscription to French Broad Chocolates. Chocolate in the mail, yes please. 


    ♥My family loves our Elderberry syrup and tea. You can grab a bottle of fresh Elderberry Syrup or Fire Cider handmade by Anna Morgan of Pisgah Folk or a Elderberry Elixir Kit  from Appalashen Apothecary to make-your-own at home or for gifts that will be traveling out of town. 



    ♥A #pourovercoffee cup made by the amazing Beth Flanagan Bond. You can Visit Her Etsy Shop Here.


    ♥A gift of health could include a gift certificate towards Chiropractic care at One Love Chiropractic or register for a Restorative Yoga + Hot Stones Class with Kim Drye of HereNowYoga.  


    ♥Enjoy giving a Gift Certificate to one of Asheville’s local food delivery businesses like Mother Earth Produce or Farm to Home Milk.


    ♥If you want to treat this mom try a day at the Grove Park Inn Spa, a craniosacral massage from Emily Rose Sullivan or a afternoon with girlfriends, wine and a hot tub rental in Hot Springs, NC.


    ♥You can shop for the garden lover at Sow True Seeds or get all of your alternative gardening supplies while enjoying a beverage at Fifth Season Gardening.


    ♥If there are little ones on your list, head to The Littlest Birds in West Asheville, they have a large selection of new and consignment items.


    ♥The gift of music is something to remember. Help one of our favorite local bands, Sirius B, by pre-ordering their next amazing CD that my whole family will enjoy  or buy a CD or record to support a band like Rising Appalachia that gives back all year long. 


    ♥Consider making tax-free donation to your nonprofit of choice before the end of the year. I choose to support the WNC Birth Center that is in its first year supporting families in Asheville.


    ♥Make your own gifts using Chestnut Herb School’s Free Herbal Holiday Guide. It is gorgeous and has recipes for herbal syrups, medicinal vinegars, and natural body care products to make for your loved ones right in your own kitchen.


    ♥Happy thoughts, prayers, well-wishes for health, happiness, peace, understanding and LOVE15192672_10154197415244010_6127445568518224950_n
