HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2018
How is it already time to start thinking about Christmas gifts again? It feels like this year just barely got started, and it’s already coming to an end. You all know that we are big supporters of small businesses, and one of our first posts on this blog was a gift guide featuring some of our favorite makers. You can read it here. This year, we are excited to share more of our favorite makers and small businesses with you. We hope that this encourages you to support entrepreneurs and purchase gifts that are unique as you check off your list this year.
We might be biased because Erika was one of our first clients, but we love her business. The mission of S64 is to provide high-quality, and well-fitting clothing to women who are considered petite. All of her pants are machine-washable, and tumble dry low so they are easy to care for as they are stylish and comfortable. You can see more images from our shoot with S64 here.
Merchant Home is another one of our favorite clients. Alexandra seeks to share a new vision for modern living, and her site is the place to go for beautiful glassware and porcelain. We especially love the Angle Tumbler in speckle. This would be the perfect gift for a newly-married friend, or someone who has a new home. You can see more images from our shoot with Merchant Home here.
Everyone loves a good cocktail, but gathering all the ingredients, prepping, and measuring can be a lot of work. WithCo created cocktail mixes that contain all of the ingredients needed for delicious drinks with fresh, flavorful ingredients. All you have to do is add ice and a splash of liquor. We have our eye on Bouquet which has lavender and rosewater.
Mellani is a graphic designer who hand letters beautiful phrases that end up on t-shirts, bags, and prints. Her style is really fun and spunky, and sure to brighten anyone’s day. Many of her products come in different sizes so you could get matching tees for a mom and baby which would be super cute.
If you’re looking for timeless, high-quality jewelry, MGG Studio is perfect. All of their pieces are handmade using sustainable materials and supporting other small businesses by working with independent casting houses and local stone setters. We especially love the celestial collection which features petite geometric shapes, sprinkled with a constellation of conflict-free black diamonds.
Heritance Goods are crafted right here in our home base of San Jose, CA. All of the belts, hats, key clips and wallets are each made individually by hand. It can be hard to find the perfect gift for men that is unique and not something they already have, but these pieces are exactly that, plus he will wear them forever.
Happy shopping! Let us know if you have any other suggestions for special gifts, and make sure to check out last year’s gift guide for more inspiration.
