This year, when it comes to gifting, I am trying to think outside of the box….big-box stores that is! There are so many quality small business out there that need our support! It’s always good to shop local, but if you can’t get to the store there are some great online retailers to choose from!
Since the birth of my twins (and a maternity leave spent scrolling through Instagram) I’ve discovered some great brands that I now support on the regular. I make it a conscious effort to shop small as much as I can! Of course, it’s hard to completely avoid the allure of Target, but this year I’ll be proud to host a number of small shop items under our tree.
Below are some gift ideas for everyone on your list!
For Your Kiddos
Cuddle & Kind
These dolls are the cutest and the best part is that with every doll purchased they donate 10 meals to children in need!
Alice & Ames
Since having a daughter I’m a sucker for a good twirly dress. These ballet style dresses are our go-to for special occasions!
These sweats are worth the splurge. My twins live in their “comfy clothes” and wear their Childhoods pieces daily!
Wire & Honey
I love the messaging behind these shirts, especially this one that stresses to my daughter that she can be anything she wants in this world!
Bows, Bows & More Bows!
My daughter’s wild, long, brown hair constantly needs taming! There are so many mom run bow shops out there to choose from. A few of our favorites include Wunderkin, The Modern Piggy & Dear Freya.
This amazing couch/kids chair/pillow fort is on my wish list for our newly renovated playroom!
For Your Husband
Custom House Print on Etsy
My Husband adores our house and puts in a lot of hard work to keep it looking great! A custom print such as this one would be a welcome addition to his man cave!
Grave Before Shave Beard Wash
Ladies, if your husband has facial hair this is a must buy! Smells SO good!
For Your Brother
For Your Mother or Mother in Law
Indie Lee Skincare
Both my Mother and I swear by this line of Skincare. It was founded by a local mom and can be purchased in many stores around Fairfield County such as Shoreline Pharmacy in Southport or Anthropology in Westport.
For Your Sister or BFF
Fawn Diaper Bag
I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on this bag! I even use it for non baby related outings, it’s that chic!
Letterfolk Letter Board
The possibilities of what you can do with this letter board are endless!
