Here's a list of gifts that could bring a smile to the nurturers in your life or to a friend who could use use a little extra TLC.

1. Choose Joy Necklace
We read about Ashley Hackshaw earlier in the year and her story is inspiring. She is a successful blogger and shares about her cancer journey in hopes that it will encourage others. Personally, it has been a difficult year for Scott and I as we each found out that a loved one is facing cancer. Won't you join us in "choosing joy" for 2014?
Life can be hard... There's financial trouble, difficult relationships, health problems, death etc... But everyday, I have a choice: I can let these things bring me down... or I can choose joy and just be thankful that I'm here. I can choose." ~Ashley Hackshaw
