With the holiday season steadily approaching, I wanted to provide a little inspiration for your shopping list. Many times we rush out to big box retailers without a second thought to how if we plan a little further in advance, we can buy amazing gifts and support small businesses as well. When you shop small you help boost the economy and encourage makers to continue on creating and producing thoughtfully crafted products. Each of these products is made with loving hands and an open heart.

Rondra of Embellished By Design creates personalized tees for the little people in your life. Her “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause,” tee is an adorable and festive top that can be paired with jeans or a cute skirt and leggings. The sizes range from newborn to 7.  Your daughter, granddaughter, niece or any little girl you know that’s atleast 1 part sassy will shine in this charming little shirt!

Erin Whitlock of Celise Designs creates mugs, totes and art prints with loads of style. Her sassy #Werk Coffee Mug makes a great stocking stuffer that will look chic whether it’s being occupied by a hot beverage or not. These are also a great option for styling photos too! The coffee and tea drinkers in your life will thank you for adding a little motivation to their everyday routines.

Silvia Torres is the owner of Mala Flats. I’m a flats girl and I always opt for comfort over all. I also understand how hard it is to find flats that are comfortable, high quality and at a great price point. Handcrafted in Leon, Mexico, these shoes utilize the finest leather to provide chic comfort.

Mei Pak is the founder of Tiny Hands Food Jewelry. I saw her Instagram feed and immediately fell in love with all the bite sized jewelry treats! I love food. I’m actually one of those people who looks at the videos of people preparing tiny food, it’s fascinating to me!  A necklace with a waffle, pancake or slice of pie as a charm is just my taste. You honestly won’t believe how real and detailed her food jewelry looks!

Dawn Fitch is the creator of Pooka, an all natural bath and body collection designed to give your hair and skin the yummy nourishment it deserves! I can personally attest the smell of the Fresh Sugah Whipped Cream! You will smell heavenly and your skin will feel amazingly moisturized all day. You won’t need perfume. Chris actually commented on how good I smelled after putting this on! The whole line is wonderful but the Fresh Sugah is definitely my favorite!

These are just a few of the small businesses that I will be shopping at this holiday season! As a rule of thumb, I only buy people gifts that I wouldn’t mind receiving. Make sure you take the time to shop thoughtfully, so you won’t be caught up in the last minute Christmas rush. Thank you for visiting and Happy Shopping!

With less than 2 weeks left until Christmas, you may be scrambling to find just the right gift for the stylish lady on your list! There’s nothing like a gift that’s thoughtful and is something that you would love to receive yourself. So I corralled 4 different gifts that I believe will make your wife, girlfriend, best friend or lady friend smile. I mean who doesn’t like nice stuff? Combining these together is sure to get you extra brownie points! 🙂 Ok, here are my picks in no particular order!

Birchbox-January-2015-670x483Your stylish friend will absolutely love her Birchbox subscription! Who wouldn’t appreciate having amazing beauty products delivered to their door? Most ladies I know love to get mail and when it has anything to do with looking good, that’s icing on the cake! 

71pCNDUiQoL._SL1500_The Naked 3 makeup palette features 12 shades of pigmented, quality eyeshadows. This palette took the place of all of my other small ones because there is such a wide variety of colors from pale pink to sultry dark browns. It’s got everything!

 

Victorias-Secret-2014-Beauty-Rush-Shiny-Kiss-Flavored-Gloss-Gift-SetWell I’m pretty much a lip gloss fanatic, so for me this is a no-brainer. The Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Shiny Lip Gloss Set has the consistency of a great lip gloss with added color. I don’t wear lipstick, so this is perfect for me. The shades are neutral, pretty and will compliment a variety of skin tones.

 

 

Kate-Spade-New-York-Daycation-Lacey-Wallet-1I couldn’t ever do a round up without some type of wallet or handbag because I just love them! This black and white floral Kate Spade wallet is absolutely gorgeous and displays a lovely pattern that is a departure from solid colors. Of course any vibrant color or pattern will do!

I hope you like my picks, let me know which one you wouldn’t mind Santa putting under your Christmas tree! LOL!!!
