holiday gift guide



We're already a week into December and holiday gift buying is in full swing! If you're struggling to find the perfect gift for that special someone, we might be able to help! We love shopping small for the holidays. Small businesses always have unique gifts with a craftsman or unique feel. Something you definitely won't find elsewhere. Also, It's always fun to give a gift that's special and meaningful. Most small businesses created their brand and products out of necessity. The commitment they place behind every item sold ensures a specialty gift with heart. This is exactly what the holiday season is all about!


Sesame Gifts (top left)

Sesame is an online and mobile boutique, making it easy to send unique gift experiences for any occasion. They thoughtfully curate each gift set and fill them with fun, colorful, one-of-a-kind items to share with your favorite people. With thoughtful touches like hand packed items, an enjoyment guide, and their gorgeous gift box, they guarantee an over-the-top experience every time. Find their app in iTunes and Google Play stores, or online at


Day Designer (top middle)

Know anyone who lives by their planner? If so, the Day Designer by Whitney English is the perfect gift for them. It's an uber organizer planner that allows you to tackle each day at a time. Instead of laying out your tasks on a weekly basis (and writing so small you need a magnifying glass to read it!) you're able outline each day with a full page. She's even included small sections specifically for dinner planning, gratitude, top 3 to-do prompts, and notes. All of your planning can finally fit in one notebook!!

A handbag organizer is a great gift for any friend or family member who carries a large handbag who is always digging around inside to find what they need. Keeping every item in it's place while easily accessible will be a HUGE lifesaver. Secondly, if you know a new or expectant mom, giving the gift of organization and style might be just what they're looking for!

You can never have too many cosmetic bags, especially when they're handmade and designed in colorful prints. These gorgeous pouches could also double as a gift bag. The excess wrapping paper and paper gift bags can sometimes be overwhelming and not very earth friendly. Utilizing the zipper pouch as a gift bag by adding a colorful bow and tag. 


Chewable Charm (bottom middle)

That super stylish friend or relative who just had a baby is likely experiencing one of the many road blocks that challenge her ability to dress how she likes. Wearing jewelry is almost impossible because baby will continuously grab for it and chew on it. Enter Chewable Charm. A collection of seriously stylish necklaces and bracelets made from silicone beads perfect for baby to chomp on. Your stylish friend will thank you for making her day easier, and babies sore gums happy. 


Gigi New York (bottom right)

A gorgeous genuine leather handbag or accessory is always a fantastic gift. Gigi New York designs and crafts totes, clutches, tech accessories, and so much more. One of our favorites is the Tori Tote. It's large capacity gives room for all of your essentials (and ToteSavvy!) while looking super stylish. Even the pickiest person on your list will adore each and every item from Gigi New York's collection.
