The holidays are right around the corner and with all the hustle and bustle, sometimes we need a helping hand with our gift ideas! Lately, I am all about giving experiences instead of actual gifts, but that doesn't always work for everyone on the list. Plus, it is always fun to open a present, so sometimes you need to add a few items to go with your gifts regardless.
For the gifts, I am going to try to be more intentional and support small businesses. There are so many wonderful companies who have poured their heart and soul into creating a business that they fully believe in. Not only will you get a more unique and thoughtful gift, but you will make such an impact on the person you bought it from.
I have put together a list of some small businesses that I follow myself and think would make perfect gifts!
1. Late Bloomer Boutique-Latebloomerboutique.com
Starting off with, you guessed it, Late Bloomer Boutique. This is a company that I created this summer and it truly has been the go-to for my fashion ever since. As a late 20 year old without a corporate job, I was having a hard time finding a place to shop. This store is perfect for the girls in their 20's-30's, but truly, has something that all women would like.
My top 3 picks for gifts would be one of our Oversized Tees. This way. you won't need to stress about sizing being right, one of our Wildflower Gold Rings, or any of the sweaters for the season. My favorite is our pistachio green daisy sweater! Everything is under $50 and free shipping!
2. Wayfarer Candle Company- Wayfarercandlecompany.com
Let's be real, everyone LOVES candles. Even people who don't burn them love to decorate with them and Wayfarer Candles has the most aesthetic matte jars with incredible scents! There are holiday scents, fresh scents, moody scents, you name it. I am not such a floral scents gal, so my favorites are Sea Salt Musk and Merry & Bright. All candles are under $25 as well!
3. LNRBars- Lnrbar.com
Do you have someone on your list who is into health and wellness? LNR bars will be the best stocking stuffer for them! This company based out of Dallas was created by a flight attendant who priorities a healthy option for someone always on the go! I have tried a few different flavors, but the blueberry cinnamon one is probably my favorite! I suggest getting a variety pack though so you can try them all! These bars range from $3.50 per bar or $40.50 for a pack of 12.
4. Kayleigh May- Kayleighmay.com
I'm always in a state of growing my hair out, so Kayleigh May has been amazing! They have protective silk accessories, hair oil, brushes, and so much more! I use her Moon Potion on my ends at night, but I also have a few pearl accessories that add a little something magical to my outfits! Definitely check her out if you care for hair! Barrettes and headbands range from $12-15
5. Rice Rendezvous- Ricerendezvous.com
I sell some jewelry on my site, but you can't beat handcrafted jewelry and Rice Rendezvous has unique and everyday pieces for everyone! I am a fan of simple bands myself, but she has colored stones and necklaces for someone who wants something a bit bolder. Best of all, the jewelry is so affordable! The ring I am eyeing is only $20
6. Rusty and Ellie- Rustyandellie.com
Nowadays, everything seems to have so much added. Fillers in our food, cleaning supplies, laundry, you name it. But not Rusty and Ellie's! They have clean and organic products to keep you and your house safe and fresh! I have been eyeing the flower food and dust cleaner! Both are under $25 and a bonus, they are so aesthetic!
7. Two Cherish Co.- https://www.etsy.com/shop/twocherishco/?etsrc=sdt&load_webview=1&bid=NOyyOGAiQNM-iMnwnuzJ_fx14BHy&load_webview=1&bid=NOyyOGAiQNM-iMnwnuzJ_fx14BHy
This Mamma run company has the cutest glassware and shirts! I have purchased a tall beer can glass for my iced coffee, a halloween shirt, and now I am thinking about getting this Christmas mug for myself! Anything I am loving goes onto my gift list, so I think this is a perfect addition for the coffee queen in your life! Under $25
