I’ve recently started making new friends and family over the holidays.

This year I made my first batch of new friends, and as we sat around the table sharing holiday stories, I realized how much I missed the old one.

I thought about how my life has changed, how it’s different from the old ones, and how it has always been different.

I don’t remember being able to celebrate the holidays with the same sense of celebration I do now.

This time I made a batch of best new family gifts, which are great gifts to share with family and friends, but I’d love to hear what you think of them.

What was your favorite gift from 2017?

Let me know in the comments!

I’d like to know what you love most about your new family or friends, what you’d like them to take from this list, and why.

Happy holidays!
