The only thing better than finding a thoughtful gift that'll make your loved one's eyes sparkle this holiday season? Treating yourself to a little something special as you shop!
This guide offers a curated collection of 14 unique gift ideas. There's something for all ages and budgets (and plenty of goodies for you to delight in, too.)
The best part? You'll support an innovative, imaginative, women-owned small business with every purchase.
1. Vintage Rose Bow
This beautiful collection of children's hair bows is made with love. (And I dare you to choose just ONE favorite design!) The Autumn Rose Collection is full of soft, lovely fabrics that will add the perfect seasonal flair to any little one's outfit.
2. Blue Stripe with Black + White Block Mug
The perfect mug for a moment-to-yourself moment. This handmade 12 oz. ceramic mug has a bold modern stripe and block dot pattern and a 22k gold luster handle.
3. Full Moon Fragrance
Ever worn a fragrance with moonstones dancing around in the bottle? No?! Then this little beauty is for you. Worn as a natural perfume, this warm and elevating blend includes Palo Santo, Clary Sage, and Frankincense.
4. All-Natural Coffee Lip Balm
In collaboration with Grateful Roast Coffee, this fan favorite lip balm is the perfect stocking stuffer for the coffee lover in your life. Moisturized lips are happy lips!
5. Oasis Box (Charcoal/Stone)
The ultimate heirloom-quality gift for the Card Queen in your life! Twelve monthly dividers plus 3 customizable ones snuggle into this built-by-hand treasure. Each sustainably-sourced hardwood lid is fitted by hand and organic cotton lines the inside for a non-slip surface. Additional colors available.
6. Turquoise and Herkimer Pendant
Art meets alchemy. Designer Amanda Leilani's jewelry showcases raw gemstones and organics in natural copper settings. She uses a technique called electroforming, in which copper builds up around each piece for 24+ hours, creating a unique, unearthed feel.
7. "Worth the Climb" - 11x14 Print
This vibrant print is a reproduction of the artist's original painting. In her words, "As this painting evolved, it reminded me of special views of nature you get when you opt to just that much further on a hike." Available in multiple sizes.
8. GRACE Anti Blue Light Glasses
Look elegant and timeless while fighting off blue light in these vintage-inspired cat eye computer glasses. The Grace is a delicate, sophisticated style named for Grace Hopper, a computer scientist and the first woman to graduate with a PhD in mathematics from Yale. (She developed some of the earliest computers!) Each style of Gleam glasses is named for another influential, historical woman.
9. Kids' Customizable Baseball Hat
Personalize these simple, classic designs with your choice of letter on the front. Add additional embroidery on the back for even more personalization. Word on the street is that kiddos love having a custom Rey to Z hat that is all their own... and doesn't need to be shared with a sibling. ;) Additional colors available.
10. Gesture of Friendship Zipper Pouch
This pouch features an illustration by artist Kat Labate Wright. Stash cosmetics, pencils, and small electronics inside this conveniently sized pouch or use it to organize the essentials inside a larger everyday bag.
11. Kids "Speaker of the House" Pullover
Love Bubby is a childrenswear brand that specializes in gender neutral designs and was featured on Oprah's Favorite Things holiday list. With the motto "You're never too young to make a statement", their collection focuses on t-shirts and bodysuits designed with a pop culture spin.
12. Perfect Classic Turkish Towel (Yellow)
This towel absorbs over 4 cups of water! It's soft, thirsty, and dries quickly. It's also a cheerful and stylish addition to your minimalist lifestyle. Some Turkish bath towels will lint and pucker, but not this one. True handwoven quality means this versatile towel will last through the years. Additional colors available.
13. Pixie Tutu
This super soft, best-selling tutu is a fun and festive addition to any occasion! Each of Sweet Wink's tutus, t-shirts, and matching accessories are designed with kids' comfort top of mind.
14. LUCIA Macrame Crochet Hammock Chair + 2 Pillows Set
This luxurious hammock chair swing is perfect for indoor or covered outdoor use. Crafted by master artisans in a small village in El Salvador, each hammock swing chair is a one of a kind piece. Made from 100% cotton canvas and handcrafted exclusively in a fair trade environment.

You shuffle to your mailbox and open it.
As usual, it's stuffed with bills and junk and a large, glossy Papa John's advertisement addressed to CURRENT RESIDENT. But wait...
There's something else.
Hidden within the intricate folds of a coupon mailer is a gosh-darned, 100% authentic, real, genuine, handwritten envelope.
And it's addressed to YOU.
