With December just days away, I’m sure gift shopping is on your radar! I’m excited to present you our 2018 RSD Gift Giving Guide, full of ideas for your family, friends, neighbors, and even pets! 

One thing I love about our products is that they make great personal gifts. So many can be uniquely tailored to your giftee, whether you pick the perfect fabric to match their personality or you send in a shirt in honor of a loved one. 

So keep on reading, and I’m sure you’ll find something (or lots of things) for loved ones on your list! And make sure to check out the visual guide here for another way to shop! 

New Moms: Our Baby Collection keeps expanding, so take a look and browse! As a mom myself, I know a stylish and functional baby bag goes a long way. The Phoebe and Melissa are both great options for this, and we also have many small items that would make perfect stocking stuffers: baby shoes, paci clips, bandana bibs, jersey knit swaddles, stroller straps or changing pads. We also have many gender-neutral fabrics, if you are buying for an expecting mom!

Dog Moms: I am a dog lover, and I know firsthand the love you can feel for those four-legged friends! If you need some stocking stuffers for a special pet, our pet bandanas, collars, leashes, and treat bags would all be perfect. Think about a Polly stuffed with a few doggy snacks! And if you have an animal-lover on your list, how about a backpack with a pet gift inside? 

Students: Kinley Cubes and wristlets make great gifts for college students, especially if you fill them with something fun! (Ideas include school supplies, candy, or coffee shop gift cards.) For a larger gift, take a look at our backpack options. (Melissa and Lia are great choices!) No college girl can have too many bags, especially with our fun fabrics! :) 

Guys: Trust me, I know guys can be tricky to shop for! The "His" Kinley Cube is great for bathroom and shaving essentials, or as a travel bag. Consider the River Rock or Road Map fabric for your man! The Philip Tote would also be a very practical choice. Also, if your loved one is in the military, make sure to check out our military line, which includes pillows. And don’t forget, if you have a guy looking for ideas for you, you can always give the subtle suggestion of a gift card! ;) 

Travelers: No one needs to travel with boring black suitcases! Pick out a fun fabric for the special traveler in your life, and they won’t have trouble spotting their bag in the airport. The Olive, Elizabeth and Gus are all large-sized bags that fit the carry-on size requirements. We also have a whole Travel Collection, which includes a Jewelry Wrap and Sunglasses Case, all perfect for your loved one on the go.

Teachers and Nannies: Oh, how wonderful and important are the people who pour their love into our children! The Cosmetic Four-Pack, Wristlet Three-Pack, or the Polly 10-Pack all make great bundles for gift giving. Fill one with your giftee’s favorite candy, or maybe a hand-made craft from your kid! Any teacher or nanny will love the thoughtfulness. A lanyard would also make a great gift for a teacher. Many of our purses are functional for teachers as well, like the Philip Tote, the Melissa, or the Gretta. 

Photo Enthusiasts: Our Photo Collection is full of options for the photographer on your list, whether professional or amateur. Photography is truly an art, and an artist loves to work in style! The collection ranges from large items, like camera bags, to smaller accessories, like camera straps.

Oil Lovers: If you have an essential oil user on your list, this gift would carry so much thoughtfulness for them. Our Essential Oil Bag fits 12 15mL or 5mL essential oil bottles — so helpful to keep them organized. The Polly 10-Pack would be another great option for organizing those little bottles!  

Pocket Lovers: Several of our bags have options for those who carry, and they also have the benefit of providing extra storage. The Phoebe, Jill and Laura are all popular purses with this option! 

RSD Fanatics: If you know someone who has half a closet of RSD purses, chances are good she’d love another! I’d suggest an Accessory Bundle for this stylish friend, which includes a Wallet, Cosmetic and Polly. Then they have more options to coordinate with their favorite purse! Gift cards would always make a welcome present for this person as well.

You: I know this is often a season full of parties and get-togethers, so why not do it in style? :) The Sarah, Pixie and the Wristlet are all great options if you want to treat yourself. As part of my business, I love helping other women succeed at fulfilling all the roles in their life. My podcast, my book, and one-on-one coaching are all tools available for you to help you succeed in whatever God calls you to. 

Business-Minded: I love the title “mompreneur” for myself (work-at-home mom), and maybe you have a mompreneur on your list? I can assure you that any business-minded friend would love an Angie laptop bag, a Jovie laptop sleeve, or a Melissa to wear as a backpack! My book, Equipped to Execute, would also be great for anyone looking to start their own business. 

That wraps up our list, and I hope this helps you! Enhance any of these gifts with a handwritten note, or maybe a specific Bible verse written down, tucked inside the purse or accessory. 

I said this last year around this time, and I want to say it again: the greatest gift is not something you’ll find at Rebekah Scott Designs — the greatest gift is Jesus, God who became man to save sinners! 

“And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’” Luke 2:10-11 

Merry Christmas!
