Chat With Bee’s Holiday Gift Guide

I don’t know about you but I always have trouble trying to figure out what to get people for Christmas. It never fails -- Even now...I'm racking my brain about what to get my loved ones and the struggle is REAL. I know I can't be the only one struggling with this. Therefore, I created a gift guide with some awesome gifts that are sure to make all of your gift-ees happy!

Yummy Experiences


You may remember that I ushered in the month of December with my 12 Days of Tea. During this observance, I shared some of my favorite TeaLife teas with you that included blends that taste just like Apple Pie and Thin Mints to blends that help to help you detox after the holidays. These full-leaf teas are some of the best teas I've ever had and I encourage you to add some of these blends to your Christmas list! While I've placed TeaLife under the yummy experiences section of my gift guide, you should also know they have bath and body teas as well.

Of course I have some awesome savings for you. Enter 'BEE10' at checkout to save 10% off of your entire order.



Meal subscription box anyone? I shared my Chef Ami experience with my followers not too long ago when I made their awesome Island Pork Tenderloin and Lemon Chicken Piccata recipes. This business one is specific to the Tampa Bay and Gainesville areas but you can always gift your Floridian loved ones this meal subscription.

You can order a one-time box or a recurring subscription that is portioned for two or four. Each box comes with three easy-to-make recipes that are designed to be made in about 30 minutes. Enter 'BEEBOGO' at checkout to get a second box for free when you place your first order!



Anyone that knows me well knows I have a serious sweet tooth! I remember the first time I ever tried a macaron like it was yesterday. The softness of the two cookies and the melty filling in between was delicious beyond measure.

Here we are in 2018 and I've come across yet another confectionery genius -- Ma-Ka-Rohn. These macarons are absolutely amazing and would be a great addition to anyone's home this holiday season. Did I mention they're local to Florida as well? This year, Santa & Mrs. Claus (aka hubby & I) are up for a treat when our little one set outs her [French] cookies for Santa!

Step your cookies for Santa game up this year and consider getting a little fancy with Ma-Ka-Rohn. Use 'CHATWB' to save 10% off of your order until 12/18/2018. Plus, all US orders over $69 receive free shipping!




If you have not heard about Zonk'dBox from me yet, something is wrong -- because I'm always raving about how much excitement they've brought us (review)! ZonkdBox is a monthly kids activity box subscription that was created to help families connect, learn, and grow with their kids through fun and educational activities. Each box comes with multiple science experiments and/or activities -- and snacks for your little one!

Last week we made a gingerbread men garland and this week, we'll be making snow! You can do all of these things and more. When you place your order by December 18th, you'll be able to get a special delivery like the one above just in time for Christmas!



Queens On Purpose

Earlier this year, I learned about Martina Bailey's natural hair care and skincare products...and they've made such a difference! It's hard to know what we are putting on our hair and skin. Many products claim to be natural but when you look at the ingredients and find all of these things you can't pronounce, that's a pretty good indicator that they're not.

I specifically tried out her Coconut Hair Butter -- which is amazing by the way (review). However, she also has some other amazing products like her body butters and stress relief soaks. If healthy, relaxation is your goal this year -- Check out Queens on Purpose!



If you haven't been following my hair care journey, now is a good time to start. I decided about 7 months ago that I would no longer chemically process my hair. This required me to explore protective styling. My choice for protective styling lead me to explore installing hair extensions that would end up preventing massive breakage and unnecessary heat exposure -- while allowing me to keep my signature look. It also allows me to switch up my color from time to time without damaging my hair.

For a limited time, Hair Youphoria Salon still has specials on extensions for the holiday season. Not local to Tampa Bay? No worries! Shipping is always available.



I don't post many pictures of myself but when I do, my attire usually reflects my persona -- cool, calm, and collected. That's why 88|NinetySeven is on my gift guide this year. Their tees, trinets, and home decor products are sure to catch your eye -- the same way they caught mine.

I've always said the story behind a company can tell you a lot about the quality of service you can expect. 88|NinetySeven has exactly what you need to cater to those common areas of your life. Be sure to check them out for those trendy threads and must-haves for your home!


If you are reading this closing, chances are you've reviewed my entire gift guide for the 2018 holiday season -- that or you scrolled all the way to the bottom. Either way, thank you for taking the time to check out some of my favorite brands! As you continue making those lists and checking them twice, I hope you were able to get some great ideas from mine!

Happy Holidays <3
