Its that time of year again.  The pace is frenetic, there just isn’t enough time in the day and on top of all of the normal pressures there’s the pressure of finding perfect gifts.  Last year I wrote a post about simplifying gift giving and along with it I detailed some of the gifts that I thought were perfect for holiday giving.  So, back by popular demand, here is the CCP holiday gift guide for 2018.

Hookey Ring Toss:  It may sound silly but this game is a hit.  I have one in the studio and my clients play it all the time.  Both kids and adults get a kick out of it.

This Book is a Planetarium Pop Up Book: 

Simply the coolest! This pop-up extravaganza transforms into six fully functional tools: a real working planetarium projecting the constellations, a musical instrument complete with strings for strumming, a geometric drawing generator, an infinite calendar, a message decoder, and even a speaker that amplifies sound.

Hide and Drink Leather Coaster Set: 

Handmade from a small town craftsman in La Antigua Guatemala.  These coasters are beautifully crafted from full grain leather and last for ages.

Gunn and Swain Mexican Blankets: 

These are always a go to gift for me.  (Probably because they bring out my inner beach hippie).  I keep several in my car as they’re perfect for sporting events, trips to the park and beach and of course, photo shoots


GoPro Hero 7:  

Of course there would be a camera! People ask me all the time what kind of camera is the best and I always answer that its the one you have with you and that you’re able to use.  There’s really no need to buy a DSLR unless you’re fully committed to investing in lenses.  Instead, choose this.  I think a GoPro delivers amazing results and is super versatile.

The Merge Cube: 

Hold a virtual object in your hand. Seriously. This is the most fun STEM toy I’ve seen in a while.  I bought the two pack for my twins and I’ve been playing with it ever since.  It may not even make it under the tree.  This works in conjunction with your smartphone.

The YETI Rambler Tumbler Set: 

Tried and true. All YETI products are great but I love these tumblers for gifts.  Everyone can use them. They’re perfect for around the house, sporting events and for your next adventure outdoors.

And of course, there’s always the gift of memories.  Carrie Collins Photography Gift Cards are always thoughtful and your friends and family will cherish the captured moments.  

Happy Holidays everyone and please take some time to relax and laugh.
