Hi Friends! Can you believe that in one month it will be Christmas Eve? This year has flown by insanely fast. We know how hard it can be to get all your shopping done during this busy time, so we put together a gift guide to help you find some unique and special gifts for your loved ones. 

ALCHEMILLA

Alchemilla jewelry is handcrafted in Oakland, CA by Jen Lorang and a small team. Each piece is unique and created with vintage, deadstock, and repurposed materials. 

BASIK CANDLE CO

Basik Candles are hand fragranced, hand poured, and hand packaged in San Francisco, CA. What sets these candles apart is that they are made from coconut wax which is just as good for the air as soy, but allows the scent to fill the room even more. 

IT'S-IT ICE CREAM

No one can resist ice cream, especially when it is between two oatmeal cookies and covered with chocolate. It's-It ships packages of their signature ice cream sandwiches in dry ice so they arrive perfectly chilled and ready to enjoy. 

ESSELLE

In addition to beautiful wooden coasters, esselle sells place card holders which would add an extra special element to any dinner party. You can also purchase a beautiful ring box for a newly engaged friend. 

BURLY BEVERAGES

Burly Beverages handcrafts small batch, natural soda syrups, soft drinks, and shrubs in Sacramento, CA. Taking a healthier approach to sodas, all drinks are made using locally-sourced ingredients and natural sweeteners. 

CONTENT MAGAZINE

Content Magazine is a non-profit publication that features the innovative and creative culture of Silicon Valley. Go deeper into the center of modern-day technology, and learn about the people who are influencing culture. 

ETTA + BILLIE

Etta + Billie is a skincare brand known for their soaps, but they also make lotions, scrubs, oils, basically everything needed for a spa day. Much of their inspiration comes from food which results in unique scents such as their Cold Brew Mint Coffee Scrub.

BAGGU

BAGGU sells nylon shopping bags designed after the traditional plastic grocery bags, only more durable, sustainable, and stylish. These bags fold up to fit easily in a purse, and come many different patterns and styles so there is something for everyone. 

LORENZA WINE

Lorenza is a dry, true Rosé with aromas of tangerine blossom and rose petal, made in St. Helena, CA. With a beautiful label, and a crisp refreshing taste, this is a great gift for anyone on your list. Buy a single bottle, or a three-bottle gift pack if you're feeling extra festive. 

PAINTED MARY

A unique gift for the art and design enthusiast in your life. Mary Finlayson creates whimsical arts and prints of ordinary scenes made special through pattern and color. All of her work is made in San Francisco, CA.
