Holiday Shopping Guide For Everyone On Your List


By now we are neck deep in the holiday season, which means we’re surrounded by Christmas music, the Starbucks Holiday cups, trimming and trappings, sugar cookies, and the never ending shopping list. If you’re like me you keep adding people to your shopping list, just when I think I’m on top of the lists I think of one more thing, and find more things I want to buy. Inevitably falling behind on my progress.

I never do anything “on time” when it comes to blogging lately, and this post is no exception. Maybe it’s because I think of the idea and then forget, or maybe it’s because I’ve been pre-occupied with everything else in life, whatever the reason, forgetfulness or life. I have been slacking on sharing these gift ideas with you. But since it ‘tis the season of giving I wanted to share some things I’m loving this holiday season, things for the whole family and every one in between. As a bonus, they are all from small shops I have found along the way.

For the little girl in your life:

Magical Wishes Boutique is the shop I ordered Lilly’s princess dresses from and I can attest to how AMAZING these beautiful dresses are. I cannot wait to see Lilly’s face when she sees them!  All hand made by a wonderful woman in Florida!

Cuddle and Kind is a sweet shop where you can find the sweetest stuffed friends for any little one in your life, and not only will you be purchasing and adorable doll, you’ll be donating to those in need as well. With each purchase Cuddle and Kind donates 10 meals to children in need! They have donated over 2 million meals and that is something beyond amazing!

For your spouse:

I had the pleasure of “meeting’’ the creative genius, Lauren Antonia, behind this Etsy store on Instagram recently and immediately fell in love with everything she makes. But these watercolor wedding vows stole my heart and may or may not have made it onto my wish list. Can we say romantic!?

For your mother or mother-in-law:

I’ve mentioned these candles before but I am doing it again because I love them that much, and their holiday scents are amazing. Bright Endeavours is a small business in Chicago that provides jobs to young moms in need of jobs so they can support their children and empower themselves. Another company working to make this a better world.
