My Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Gift giving is one way to show your love and appreciation for one another. Whether a small token or a grand gesture it always counts. To help you out this festive season, I have gathered some easy gifts that might make a loved one around you very happy. They are mostly easy to grab and package and of course my top picks for him and her! So let's get started below!



AMBIANCE BY TALATA presents two scented candles made in Ghana, from the Ambiance Home Collection by Talata. "Uplift" is citrusy, energizing and uplifts your spirits like the name suggests. "Breathe" is floral and my personal favorite. The candles are made with Shea butter wax and the highest grade of fragrance oils. Get this; the candle wicks are made out of wood. This already packaged, ready for gifting candles can be bought directly the Talata showroom or through he Talensi Gifting Services.
