Here is a list of my favorite things that can make great holiday gifts this year for the women, and men, in your life who embrace their age. Don’t forget to put a few of these on your own wish list.

Crone Cards. This deck of cards provides wisdom right at your fingertips from elder women who represent all walks of life.

In the Arms of Elders. This part memoir, part fiction, part parable book is a great novel that highlights the dignity and value of older people.

Golden Girls DVDs. Why not give the gift of fun and laughter? The Golden Girls are an all-time favorite and provide an excellent representation of community living.

Joan Medlicott Books. If you love fiction and want to read a fun series about older women reinventing their lives, these are the perfect books.

The Blueprint of We. If you’re ready to create your community, there is no better gift to give than a collaborative document on which to build the relationship.

My House Our House. In case you can’t tell, I love books. This real life story of women who created their own community is truly inspiring.

Creating Community Anywhere. This is a more practical book for creating and living in community. It provides tools to help us create community throughout our lives.

Books by Diana Leafe Christian. Any book by this dynamic writer and speaker can help inspire community building and intentional living.

My guidebook. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out my own book. Your Quest for Home is a workbook designed to help you organize your thoughts and begin to build community.

Of course, as the song goes, these are just a few of my favorite things. There is so much more out there that I could recommend. I would also like to hear from you! What books, tools, or other gifts would you recommend for our generation?  Join the conversation at my Facebook page.
