Winter in Wishful LivingEvery year my family has an unusual tradition of stuffing our family stockings with items such as toothpaste, shaving cream and deodorant.  Those typical items you purchase at the store for everyday use, and those same items that offer little or no excitement to get.  As this holiday season approaches I look forward to filling the family stockings with many more unique items from Wishful Living this year.  I say let's make this a season to remember with unforgettable stocking stuffers, cards and gifts!

Each day is one step closer to the holiday season, and at Wishful Living the preparation has already started.  I am an employee at this amazing store and look forward to coming into work each day to see the new merchandise that will be put out for the holiday season!  As boxes are unwrapped and items tagged, the excitement of the holiday season fills the air.  The employees have been working hard on the calendar for extended holiday hours beginning the day before Thanksgiving!

Wishful Living is an eclectic boutique located in the heart of Berthoud, Colorado next to City Star Brewing at 321 Mountain Avenue.  As you walk into the store, your eyes will dance at the amazing display of merchandise throughout the building.  Each room offering a unique feel and items from an exciting adventure that the owners of the store took to import the merchandise back from various countries such as Indonesia, Bali and Guatemala.

As the countdown to the holidays appears, it is truly a pleasure to talk with each customer coming into the store looking for that perfect gift!  Whether it be jewelry, home décor, furniture or so much more, you are guaranteed to find a special item that no other store carries. Box Signs with amazing sayings, scarves and candles that smell delicious are some of the few items I myself have a hard time resisting the urge to buy.

The owners and staff at Wishful Living have picked a variety of unique merchandise to be displayed throughout the store each week.  With all of the exciting items we have to offer, you will be able to stock up on plenty of merchandise for family, friends and co-workers.  I cannot wait to share with you through this blog some holiday home must have items as the holidays continue to get closer!

One of the best things about working in Wishful Living is the smell. I know that may sound weird, but seriously. Right now when you walk into the store you’re enveloped in the smell of fall. It smells like cinnamon buns, warm hazelnut coffee, and warmth & coziness. This smell reminds me that the holidays are right around the corner and gives me all of these warm and fuzzy feelings about the changing seasons!

These Indonesian Cinnamon Bowls and Clove Boxes are the next things to grab my senses. Not only are they absolutely beautiful but they smell divine.  Obviously, the name says everything. End cuts of cinnamon sticks line the inside of these plates and bowls and make the perfect piece for display or the perfect way present your (already delicious smelling) baked cookies! The Clove Boxes are just the same in that they give off the most faint, delicious smell. I would use one to store jewelry, but they are the most precious little keepsake boxes and could be used for anything. They would be such a great way to wrap a small gift…jewelry, perhaps? Each and every Cinnamon Bowl and Clove Box was completely handcrafted in Indonesia.

I have never traveled outside of the country, so I can only imagine what it is like to be in Indonesia or Thailand. Being in Wishful Living I smell incense, the boat wood, and the air from the sea winds. It is what I imagine the smell of these countries to be. It feels like I get to travel every day.  ~ Nikki
