Good JuJu Herbal Gift Guide

****Full disclosure, this is the same intro to last years gift guide because it still applies and I don't feel like i've gotten much funnier so why not just ride out a good intro, right?? The Gift Guide section is expanded and not the same as last years.

p.s. I still have yet to master making a casserole (if you don't understand just keep reading)***


Christmas Is The Best Time Of The Year, That Is, Until It Becomes The Worst Time Of The Year.

Don't get me wrong, I really do love Christmas, but gift giving is stressful. Every year I feel like my list gets longer, employee gift exchange, teacher gifts, friend gifts, family gifts, and gifts for guys in general. Personally all of those gifting occasions can be stressful, but the most nerve racking to me is the blindsided gift exchange, you know what i'm talking about. It is the gift exchange everyone worries is possibly looming this holiday season! The blindsided gift exchange is when one person you are friends/work place proximity associates (I had to, Parks and Rec is life) with gets you a gift and you are empty handed, trying not to make eye contact. Sounds horrible, right? Let me assure you it is horrible, so here is the solution to avoid it this year and some other gift giving solutions! 

Solution to the horrid blindsided gift giver (who you often really like but holidays are crazy and people always expect you to make like a million casseroles for random gatherings this time of year so I mean really, who can even remember to buy gifts because casseroles have 18 ingredients minimum and  are harder than they seem).

The Simple Gift Set comes packaged with a Hand Cut Cedar Soap Dish, Shea Butter Lip Balm and choice of bar soap. ($12)

 Soap, it is the answer. Having a few Good JuJu gift sets on hand is perfect. Soap if functional, everyone uses it, and the gift sets look awesome, plus you are support a small business! So, let me set the scene. You go to lunch with a friend to catch up, you walk in, sit down. Your friend walks in bag in hand. You get pumped because gifts are awesome and then instantly panic, BUT WAIT you've got a Good JuJu gift set in your car ready to roll!! So you say "oh I wasn't sure if we were doing gifts but I got you something too, it's actually in my car"! See, that went perfect, and now you can enjoy that tuna melt you've been eyeing (I hope someone reading this loves tuna melts as much as me) and have a nice lunch with your friend! Blindsided gift giving solved, now on to the rest of the gift guide! It is much less ranty (not a word, I know) from here on out, I promise.

Each Section will be broken down into different price points so you can make it work no matter what your budget is!
