The Shop Mindful Love List Gift Guide 2022

November 15, 2022

Welcome to my 2022 Shop Mindful Love List Gift Guide!

For years, my clients, friends, family, and strangers have frequently asked me: where did you get that? So, each year I pile up and KonMari® my favorite things into one list of joy.

This list was made with love by a Master KonMari® Consultant/Recovering Mindless Shopper/Master Gift Whisperer.

This year’s theme: Shop My Home!

In 2020, as an act of radical self-care, I explored the past 10 years of my Amazon order history. 721 items shopped. 337 still spark joy. 

This year, I’m sharing these items, which fall across 15 categories (Books, Home Goods, Organizing Tools, Pet, etc.). I’ve hand selected 15 items that not only spark premium joy, but also make unforgettable gifts this holiday season.

BONUS: In addition to things I love in my home, I also added items that I’ve most frequently recommended to my clients over that past five years.

Not sure how to shop mindful?

Check out my TEDxTalk where I explore what my shopping behaviors say about me and the three questions I ask myself before I click “Place Your Order.”

Read Before You Shop…

I’ve purchased, tested, and adored 99% of the items on this list. They are favorite things I use on a regular if not daily. The remaining items I’ve either recommend to clients or gifted to friends and family.

That being said, what sparks joy for some, may not spark joy for others! Take your time and explore each recommendation carefully to make the best decision based on the information and resources you have available at this time.

OK. Ready. Set. SHOP MINDFUL!

Shop Mindful Reminder

Don’t forget to ask yourself three questions as you #shopmindful before you click “Place Your Order”:

  • Do I need it?
  • Can I afford it?
  • Will it fit into my beautiful home and life?

Which of my recommendations sparked the most joy? Let me know below:

  1. Marsha Lee says:

    I bought the body wash. It comes in an attractive container. The scent is ok, but it is not moisturizing.

    • Kristyn Ivey says:

      Marsha,
      Thanks for shopping! Please note that if the item you purchased doesn’t 100% spark joy, you can return it for a full refund via Amazon. I use Saltair as a finishing second cleanser after my bar soap. I apply the Saltair body wash using an African Exfoliating Net. I follow it up with layers of 2-3 moisturizers: advanced therapy creams, body oil/tinctures and body butter. Thanks again!
