holiday gift guide
Here are some of my favorite indie New England brands, Herd Supply products, and wishlist items to bring a little cheer to your small business holiday shopping.
Shopping small is a BIG act! Thank you for supporting makers and small businesses this holiday season.
Sleep easy on a linen/cotton fabric and wool stuffed pillow. Wool is great for sleep because it is breathable, naturally sound absorbent, refluffable, and odor-resistant. Plus, it's sourced from renewable wool (sheep must be shorn each spring) from four New England farms!
CarmiClay Mugs ($36 – $52)
I *love* Carmen's new wood fired mugs. Find your favorite on her website or if you're lucky enough to be in Hudson, MA, on November 26th, she will be at Crose Nest Apothecary from 10am – 3pm.
Porcelain and Stone's jewelry is timeless and simple while also drawing inspiration from the natural world (flowers and sea colors feature prominently in her pieces). I have a pair of her studs and her dangles that I love because they feel right for all occasions and the 14k gold fill doesn't bother my ears. How beautiful are these Calla Lily earrings?
Knit Wool Ear Warmer ($48)
I bought this from Jules last year and love it. So cozy and warm and easy to pack.
Build your own wreath with Emily Day of Bell Brook Farm. Emily is such a talented farmer and has a great eye for floral composition. It'll be a fun night with a keepsake you'll want to dry for future use!
For what it's worth: I'm currently trying to convince my mom to take this class with me – maybe we will see you there!
Vessel Candles ($26)
I love everything Vessel Candle makes, and the White Mountains candle is my go-to yearround.
Tough on grease, easy on hands, and cute on your counter. The Nana is:
- Plastic free – the soap block is a cube of soap that doesn’t need packaging to contain it
- Gentle on hands – lanolin is hydrating and helps protect your hands from drying out as you do dishes
- Long lasting – the soap just needs a couple of swipes at a time to lather
Made by Cleverhood in Providence, RI, with interwoven reflective thread. As a cyclist, visibility is top of mind and I love that this is a chic but practical outerwear layer for any time of day. After one particularly wet ride earlier this year, I'm drawn to capes over rain coats for keeping legs dry on rainy commutes or joy rides.
Cleverhood is offering 20% off orders placed on Small Business Saturday, November 26th, with code SmallbutMighty.
Salve Set ($70)
For the skincare enthusiast, knitter, farmer, or gardener in your life, the Salve Set is a deep conditioner to restore dry skin, soften cuticles, style eyebrows, or apply to your hair tips. The set includes the Lanolin Salve – which is pure wool wax – and the Cure All Salve – which is a lightly scented blend of lanolin and other oils. A little goes a long way!
Monthly Chocolate Club ($130 – $305)
This chocolate is delicious! We bought my grandfather a 3 month subscription for Christmas last year (if you're 93, I think you deserve a little chocolate :). The only piece I got to try was a Red Hot chocolate bark and it was addictive.
