It’s the most wonderful time of the year and from now until Christmas, Lorae will be bringing us the Company Memo with a mix of items you will want under your tree, and non-gift ideas to enjoy the season with family and friends. I love the idea of creating a dream jar with your loved ones and adding to it this month, then taking it back out next New Year’s to see what wishes came true. Thanks for another inspiring Memo, Lorae!

Get Comfy: Mashabi’s Slippers
We are lucky to have a house of hard wood floors and during the winter months, you will find slippers scattered everywhere to evade the cold floors. Meet one of my longest coveted items – Mashabi’s, the modern, functional slipper. The minimalist lambswool lined slippers come with detachable soles so that you can transition from indoor/outdoor use. You can also customize your slipper with the sole of your choosing. These have been on my list for at least 3 years and I’m hoping one day they will be under my tree. This Mashabi insider video will show you everything you need to know. They even have a kids’ version—my almost tween would love a pair of these. What a way to make her feel like a grownup!
Give Back: Amazon Smile
We just celebrated Giving Tuesday, the international movement encouraging people to give their time, money and other resources at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season. There are 24 days until Christmas and I know most people still have shopping to do. I feel like I do the bulk of my shopping on AMAZON, because they have the products, competitive pricing and expedient shipping. Did you know that your favorite charity can benefit from your purchases on Amazon? When you shop at smile.amazon.com a portion of your same low priced merchandise will benefit your nominated charity. You can find all the details here. Using smile.amazon.com. consumers have accumulated over $62M in donations since August of 2017.
Do: Dream Jar
This month will feel like a sprint to most of us but it doesn’t have to. I found an amazing way to not let the moments slip away while in the company of our loved ones. I saw this Parents article on Facebook and love the write up. The dream jar is an incredible way to stop time, listen and be in the present moment. I love the idea of hearing about our children’s dreams and experiences in a different way. To make it even easier to start the conversation, I found interesting table topics and chat pack—perfect for a stocking stuffer. Who knows, maybe the dream jar will stay all year long!
