It is hard to believe we are closing in on the 2018 holiday season! My 2017 New Year's Resolution was to write more blog posts. It did not happen. I now resolve not to make such silly resolutions in the future. That being said, I do love putting together this annual Gift Guide. What a joy to celebrate the small businesses and artists I adore. And please don't hesitate to send me your favorites. Happy Holidays sweet friends.
2018 Holiday Gift Guide
WingostarrJewelry - I have been coveting these beautiful smudge sticks made with organic flowers and herbs for months! What a fantastic idea for a stocking stuffer or housewarming gift. I might just have to buy myself two, one to display and one to burn.
Mister Speckles - I love these whimsical prints by Dutch artist Annemiek of MisterSpeckles. Not only are they educational, but such a joy to gaze upon. I originally got the solar system print for my son's room but once I framed it I loved it so much it went up in the family room for everyone to enjoy.
Oko - For those of you who like to find lovingly used, one-of-a-kind treasures Oko is sure to please. An amazing collection of vintage and antique jewelry has me drooling all over their Instagram feed. I am in love with this antique Georgian gold book locket. Please, someone, buy it, I need to know it will go to a good home ;).
Parcel - For family and friends who live too far to visit during the holidays I love sending them a perfectly curated gift box from Parcel. Packed with artisanal and handcrafted products from the Pacific Northwest, like Owl's Brew mulling spices, limited edition playing cards, and Woodblock Chocolate. Gift themes include Cocktail Night, Deluxe Winters Rest, and Morning Ritual to name a few.
Houha Designs - These beautiful 3D model kits are perfect for family downtime over the holidays. I am always struggling with what to give the hubby, and I really like the idea of giving experiences or projects that include multiple family members. Not to mention the finished products are so wonderfully displayable!
Until next year friends! #smellgood
