1. The Moleskine Journal:
She never lost the plot per-say, she just adds to the story line to keep us in suspense:
The Moleskine Journal is perfect to strategize, inform, plot, and otherwise map her brilliance. Moleskine has long been the favorite choice for writers, designers, poets, and and artists. Her dreams are far more expansive then the confines of this journal, but i love the catch- all pocket in the back for those extra musings, napkin diagrams, and forgotten receipts. Pair this beautiful gift with a bow, and a brand new pen and for bonus credit you can lead her over to their website where designers, poets, musers, and thinkers share their “pages” with those of us less bold. The Moleskine community is rich with inspiration and revelation- *perfect!
2. Design Her Own Shoes
Milk and Honey anyone? Oh, I’ll have what she’s having! Build me a tall hot wedge with two pumps of attitude in a color fit for revealing my wild side. This site invites her to create her very own look. Friend Dory Howard has paired up with her sister to bring women the ultimate creation… her own pair of self-designed shoes! Get her a gift certificate or send her to the site on Christmas morning and give her an “experience” as you watch her design something exclusively for her.
Disclaimer: price ranges based on the revelationary ‘s personal taste.
Revelationaries know that it’s not really about the cards as it is about your willingness to seek and understand. Tarot cards, Animal Medicine, Angel Cards, or any tool that helps you access your higher self or inner wisdom is a great gift to give- especially this one from Anthropologie– beautiful!
Each card is hand illustrated and accompanied with the official “guide book” to lead her toward her own innate and universal wisdom.
Price: $40.00 at Anthropologie.
4. Revelationaries love to wear their hearts (or cause) on their sleeves: T-shirts and apparel from Sevenly raise money for a variety of causes. My purchases fund the fight against human sex trafficking in the US, and I love them because the graphics rock and the cuts are soft and hip. I am so impressed by this company, and what they do for fundraising in the world. Stories are so inspirational, and if you act now, you can get her a “gift bag” of three of the years most popular tee’s.
Day 1: Autism Speaks
On Day 1 of Sevenly’s 7 Days Of Christmas we raised over $12,000 for Autism Speaks! These funds will go directly towards providing communication tools for children on the autism spectrum!
5. Symbols, meaning, & coffee tables: This book on Symbols combines original and incisive essays about particular symbols with representative images from all parts of the world and all eras of history and would look beautiful on my coffee table. Understanding the many symbols we use to communicate by, with explanations and stunning imagery- this book is a beautiful example of how impactful imagery can be in identifying what connects us, inspires us, and builds shared meaning.
Price: $32.00 Hardcover
5. BOOK ME.
Here are a few amazing books to consider for the revelationary in your life.
In this moving coming-of-age story, Kim brings to life her rat-infested home, her childhood consumed by concealing her father’s shameful secret from friends, and the emotional burden that ultimately led to an attempt to take her own life. And in beautiful prose, Miller sheds light on her complicated yet loving relationship with her parents that has thrived in spite of the odds.
Coming Clean is a story about recognizing where we come from and the relationships that define us—and about finding peace in the homes we make for ourselves.

There is an alternative to allowing technology to own our future. In this ambitious and deeply humane book, Lanier charts the path toward a new information economy that will stabilize the middle class and allow it to grow. It is time for ordinary people to be rewarded for what they do and share on the web.
Insightful, original, and provocative, Who Owns the Future? is necessary reading for everyone who lives a part of their lives online.

6. Give her the gift of a MANTRA.
This could be one of my favorites this season. At TRP we are always aware of our intentions. By being aware of what is possible and thinking intentionally- we can create our own reality. Mantra has taken this concept to a whole new level by providing a water bottle to write your mantra indelibly. Have you ever seen “What The Bleep Do We Know?” Thinking about your mantra as you drink it down might just be the most thirst-quenching thing you’ve ever done for yourself!
Check out the design choices or give her one that she can write her own mantra on.
This is a great gift for change-makers everywhere, not to mention, yogis, outdoor enthusiasts, dance professionals, and gym divas.
Price: $24.00 at Mantra www.themantracompany.com

8. Remember when we…
Nostalgic, beautifully designed and completely updated in function. Polaroid brings back the instant camera.
Lets “face” it. Us revelationaries are “social creators” with a propensity for documenting our most outrageous escapades with one another.
Does a “revelation” really happen if it’s not been documented?
Give her the gift of instant permanence, and polaroid magic.

10. Make it. Yep, you heard me.
She’ll appreciate something home-made from you more than just about anything.
Here are some ideas:
A DIY kit for letter writing or…
Find a beautiful large box (Marshalls or TJ Maxx) and find a few things for inspiration to place inside. Perhaps a beautiful calligraphy set or some gorgeous paper, envelopes and a special pen. Wrap it up with a book of stamps, or embellishments that she can add to her letters before sending. You can find some great stamps or stencils at the local craft store or maybe even fill it with art supplies so she can discover her inner artist. Add an instructional book or a gift book about her topic of interest and viola! you have the perfect personalized gift that she can use to dream up her own creations.
A Progressive Collaborative Journal:
A gift is in the name of more intimacy and communication. It doesn’t matter if you live together or far away. The idea is that you get to know each other even more deeply, using the art of letter/journal writing.
Purchase or make beautiful blank journal and every sixth page write a provocative or probing question and give her three pages to write her own thoughts and you get the next three. At the end — you have a collected manuscript of your friendship, romance, or relationship. Now you can fight over who gets to keep it! or, you can take turns and keep the tradition alive once you’ve filled the first journal.
Make her a box or jar of possibilities:
I love using the art of words to convey the mood of the day.
Step one: Write a list of beautiful possibilities, quotes or love notes and them cut them and fold them up and place them all in a jar or a beautiful box. On the gift tag you can tell her she gets to choose one per day and read it.
Mine usually have words or possibilities such as:
Each day she can see what you, or the universe has in mind for her.
I love making my words on beautiful paper and stenciling or painting a design on a glass jar. It makes a unique and beautiful “handmade” gift.
