10 Meaningful Gifts for Empaths
'Tis the season for celebrating together, sharing in delicious food, and exchanging gifts from the heart. For those highly sensitive individuals, the intention behind the gift is as meaningful as the present itself! Instead of running to the store and grabbing a last-minute gift, ask yourself how you'd like them to FEEL when they receive it. Here are 10 gifts that will touch the heart of the empath you love (or ideas for you to pass along for yourself).
1) Vegan, Refillable Journal
A journal can be a little book of growth to a greater sense of self-awareness and discovery. By exploring one's own emotions and experiences, we have the opportunity to determine what is coming from ourselves and what we've been picking up on from others. This journal has a sunrise... the symbol of hope and new discoveries as well as a reminder to shine your own unique light! It also happens to be crafted of vegan faux leather, and refillable for use time and time again.
2) Noise Reduction Ear Plugs
Often, empaths and the highly sensitive also find themselves overstimulated by excessive noise. These sleek and stylish ear plugs come in 6 different colors, and with a small carrying case to slip in your purse or backpack to prevent them from becoming lost.
