From Fear to Freedom
From Fear to Freedom GUIDE topaz enhance sharpen hiresDOWNLOAD GUIDE

The holidays are here! Which means it’s gift-giving time. I absolutely love gifts.🎁 I love giving gifts, and I love receiving gifts! I even love searching for the perfect gift!

Things have changed so much. 🥰

For a long time, the Christmas holidays weren’t all that festive for me. They were all tied up in my parents’ death, my own insecurities, and FEAR. Earlier this month, I talked about how the holiday season isn’t so joyous for everyone. In that post, I dig into why it's so, so, SO important to practice self-love during the hectic holiday season.

Check out that article here: How to Give Yourself the Gift of Self-Love This Holiday Season.

In this post, I share my 11 favorite gift ideas. These are some items I love to give as gifts, presents I adore, and products I can’t live without.

If you’re stuck on a gift idea for someone fearless in your life, these ideas will help!

Psst—It’s okay to treat yourself to some of these gift ideas too! The holiday season demands some self-love! 💝

1. Rose Oil (Or Rose Scented Anything!)

I love all things rose! I love the scent. I love the flower…

It wasn’t always this way. My grandma used to wear rose cologne; back then, it was the cheap chemical kind. Because of that lingering memory, I turned up my nose at all things rose.

Until my friend Carol gave me the gift of pure, high-quality rose oil. When she handed me the precious elixir, she remarked that rose is the scent of gurus. She thought it was perfect for me because the true definition of guru is “teacher.” Well, this rose oil did not smell like my grandma’s. It was heavenly.

Now, give me any gift that smells like a real, true rose, and I’ll be pleased.😍

🌹 The scent of rose has been shown to encourage our brains to release endorphins and dopamine, our “feel good” hormones, which help ease physical pain and sadness. Applying rose oil to your skin also decreases anxiety and stress—which, as I’m sure you’re well aware, can be extremely high around the holidays!

Give someone the gift of peace and calm with some rose-scented oils. Rose-scented candles work, too! There’s even rose-scented shampoo. Yum!

Be sure to buy high-quality rose products, or your gift may smell like my grandma! 🤣 My favorite rose oil is called Floral Goddess by Blooming Amethyst. Tell the owner, Jeann, Rhonda sent you. 😉

2. Tulsi Sweet Rose Herbal Tea Tulsi Sweet Rose Herbal Tea

Organic India Tulsi Sweet Rose Herbal Tea is my go-to non-caffeinated tea. It’s my favorite caffeine-free tea of all time, and believe me—I’ve tried plenty!

I absolutely love this tea and have been singing its praises for years. I drink it all the time myself and share it with anyone who comes to visit.

Seriously, anyone who takes a sip loves it! I buy it by the case and pass out boxes for gifts around the holidays… Well, actually, anytime. 😉

It helps that it has ROSE in the name—A common theme of my all-time favorite gifts!

3. Teeccino’s Vanilla Nut Herbal Tea

If I had to pick a second favorite non-caffeinated tea in the world, this would be it!

Teeccino’s Vanilla Nut Herbal Tea is my favorite tea to sip at night. I used to drink rooibos tea after the sun went down, but Teeccino’s has so many more delicious ingredients, like organic carob, dates, and figs. Rooibos just can’t compete.

Add some vanilla bean creamer, eggnog, or Nutpods Holiday Nog, and it becomes rich and creamy, like a guilt-free dessert.

The Nutpods Holiday Nog is only available around the holidays, so I stock up, and I suggest you do, too!

4. Silk Pillow Cases

If you haven’t tried a silk pillowcase, you’re losing out on one of my top-secret beauty tips. And so are the people in your life. They will love you for introducing them to this treat—It will soon be something they can’t live without.

My BFF, Marta, gave me a luxurious set one birthday, and, well, I’m a convert.

A silk pillowcase is soft and cool on your face. It leaves your hair tangle-free, especially important for those with curly hair, and, listen up—It helps prevent wrinkles! What a miracle product!

They come in all sorts of colors, so you can please the wild and funky on your list as well as those “classic is best” family members.

Psst. When traveling, I tuck one in my suitcase to pull over guest room pillows, so be sure to gift a two-pack!

5. Pillow Cube for the Fussy Sleeper

Pillow Cube for side sleepers

Sleep is so important for your self-care and wellness, and it’s absolutely necessary around the holidays. I can’t live without my Pillow Cube.

It doesn’t matter how nice the guest or hotel pillows claim to be—this is the only pillow that keeps my back straight and my face from crinkling up. Specifically designed for side sleepers, the Pillow Cube aligns your spine and supports your neck.

They even have a cool version that’s designed to keep your temperature down at night, which biologically helps you fall asleep! That’s right—Lowering your temperature at night helps your circadian rhythms, which is why I use a temperature-controlled Eight Sleep mattress cover that cools down my bed at night and slowly warms it again as it’s time to wake up. It’s an indulgence for sure, but I love it!

6. Detangling Brush for Unruly Hair 

Best. Brush. Ever. There isn’t much more to say than that. Try it, and you’ll never turn back, especially if you have curly hair, baby fine hair, or hair that just turns into a rat's nest in the middle of the night. (You know who you are!)

Surprise someone in your life who is prone to tangles—And it’s only $10!

Oh, I just thought of one more thing I use daily that helps me manage my hair: A shower cap. But this isn’t an ordinary shower cap. This baby sticks and never stinks. I love this thing. (You will definitely thank me later!)

7. My Go-to Travel Backpack

I take this bag everywhere. It’s so versatile and durable. I have so much faith in it that it’s coming with me when I go on my upcoming sisters’ trip to Finland! (I took it white water rafting last year! The photos are hilarious. 🤭)

The Cotopaxi Allpa 35L Travel Bag will become your favorite carry-on. It has a padded laptop or tablet sleeve to keep your devices safe (and cozy!) and even has a suitcase-style, full-wrap zipper opening in the main compartment, which is perfect for keeping everything organized! Plus, I love the netting that holds everything in. No need for cubes!

Oh, one more thing. This bag is TOUGH and built to last, so if you have some fearless friends who love adventures in nature, or if wheeling a bag up the hills of Italy isn’t your style, this bag is just what you (and they) need.

8. A Daily Journal

I absolutely love journaling. In fact, I’m in the middle of writing my fifth book (it’s soooo good—I can’t wait for you to read it!), and I pulled out all my journals from the last thirty years. And yes, the black hardcover ones are the current style I use. ✍️

Rhonda's 30 years of journals

I’m frequently amazed by what my subconscious reveals to me when I just sit down and start writing with no judgment. There’s tremendous freedom in letting difficult emotions or (seemingly) far-off dreams escape on the page rather than keeping them in.

Can you think of anyone in your life who could benefit from a bit more reflection, expression, and FREEDOM in their life?

Writing is such a powerful tool for understanding and fighting fear. This holiday, give your loved ones the gift of deep insight, self-reflection, and self-acceptance.

I also have a separate journal dedicated to expressing gratitudes on a daily basis.

Any journal will do! I use a sketchbook with no lines because I hate being hemmed in! I buy mine by the case, but if you’d like to give one like mine a try, grab this one.

The more creative and artsy in your life may prefer dotted or colored pages to freely express themselves through both words and imagery. For those always on the go, opt for a pocket-sized travel journal that they can keep on hand, so they don’t miss when inspiration strikes.

Take your journaling to the next level with Fearless Writing. Discover YOUR voice to heal your heart and unleash your soul.

9. Fearless Living Books

Do you know someone in your life who is weighed down by procrastination or overwhelmed with responsibilities? Are they trapped in a career that doesn’t fit them anymore? Or maybe they complain way too much or make excuses (they call reasons) that you hope they give up soon? Or maybe it’s their weight or relationship or just an overall feeling of stuckness?

Then, my sweet friend, you must grab my first book, Fearless Living, for your friend in need.

It’s the foundation of my life’s work—guiding people to live the life their soul intended™.

Enable a struggling loved one to let go of indecision, gain clarity of purpose, act on their intuition, and take life-changing risks. And don’t worry—I won’t talk at you! Nope. I am a Coach, and a good one at that, not a finger-wagger.

All my books are filled with tangible guidelines, Fearbuster Exercises™, and tools to help anyone embrace freedom and build a life free from fear.

Rhonda's 4 books

11. A Fearless You Membership

And finally, number 11, my favorite of all: Give the gift of FEARLESSNESS.

Do you have a friend or family member who often struggles with managing their feelings during the holidays or just in general? Do they have wonderful dreams and ideas that they keep putting off? Do they often sigh and say, “Maybe one day?” Are they people-pleasers who always put others before themselves while sacrificing their own mental and physical health? Do they have a difficult time with self-love and self-acceptance?

Or maybe this sounds like you (even just a little bit)?

Either way, give a loved one (including yourself—because you love yourself, right?) the gift of fearlessness and community by signing them up for a Fearless You membership—A one-stop-shop that has everything you or your loved ones need to master fear and build unshakable confidence.

Fearless You members not only get ALL of my premium courses, they also get the chance to work with me and my coaches every month!

I’ll teach you to set boundaries, heal relationships, master your mindset, get your needs met, use your voice, and so much more. In fact, sit down for this one––There are over 50 courses, and I’m adding courses all the time. (You can find just about any solution to any problem in our library!)

It’s the best kind of gift—One that keeps on giving!
