HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
The focus of this holiday gift guide is Small Business Saturday, which is the first Saturday after Thanksgiving and our goal is to inspire you to shop these small businesses this season. They have so much talent! We are only scratching the surface of what these shops have to offer. Get that gift list out!
Christine Rubino, the artist behind this piece, says this about it, “My resting–my true resting, comes in knowing that all of this and all my cares and all my burdens to be resolved do not hinge on me, but on One greater than I. So I can be still and trust and know that He is, for He has been and will continue to be so very trustworthy.” We all know someone who needs to hear this and rest in it this holiday season. We've barely just begun and I know you're crossing someone off that list.
Averi Lynn is my virtual assistant's daughter. You might remember her helping me do my first Instagram Live when we were putting together the Thanksgiving Table post. This hand painted sign will grow with her. It's classic black & white and each child is prayed over while the sign is painted and Nicole includes a verse that God leads her to while praying. She writes it on the back of the sign! What a precious gift to give anyone at any age.
These white candle stands are each hand turned to give each one its own individual shape. The Split Woodworks family began just making baseball bats as a hobby and now they make amazing handcrafted items. These candle stands would look amazing on a fireplace mantle, as a centerpiece on a dining room table, in a vignette or lets be honest, the possibilities are endless. These distressed candle stands are trending and who wouldn't love unwrapping these beauties!
Old window frames are in high demand when it comes to farmhouse decor. This vintage white photo frame not only entails the rustic look, but also twine and clothes pins to hang 4×6 photos. It can be stood on a bookshelf or hung on a wall. What better way to change out the season decor than with pictures of loved ones at different times of the year. Check another person off your gift list and keep reading!
In a world where technology pulls us away from spending time with loved ones, this sweet poem is sure to touch the heart of the recipient. This would look adorable displayed on a gallery wall or in a dinning area. We all need a little reminder that time is short and we need to cherish each second we have to make memories. Brittany's combination of her love of words mixed with her passion for home decor became her own shop, Ellison Made. We think you'll find something for many of those on your gift list as well as maybe even find a few things you might add to your wish list.
While looking through Instagram stories, we came across the artisans being featured at Magnolia's Silobration in October. We came across Hemlock & Heather and fell in love with their wall art. Partnering with individuals that make one-of-a-kind repurposed wood art was exactly what we imagined when we were on the hunt for the perfect gifts you would want to wrap up for your loved ones. Can you imagine their excitement when they open up their own state Christmas morning?
This Fresh Wave Kit would be great for the cook in your life! It includes all natural odor removing products. As in the good stuff you find in nature—not harsh chemicals that were manufactured in a lab. Truth be told, Fresh Wave has been made with natural ingredients since long before it was trendy or cool to use natural products. This is a gift you can give and know that what it contains is safe for people, pets and the planet.
What's not to love about this Farmhouse Grain Sack Pillow Cover? We can't think of one person who wouldn't love get this as a gift. It would look great on a couch, accent chair, bed or in a wicker basket! Head over and watch Lisa take you on a tour of her Farmhouse Pillow Shop. It's a fun addition to see where your gifts were made with so much love and detail.
Give a little bit of “heaven” into your loved one's home decor with this geometric himmeli heart! The word “himmeli” is Swedish, commonly understood as “sky” or “heaven”, and rightly so, given the exquisite, celestial structure of this heart. You would never guess that this item is made with straws and wire! It's light weight and spray painted and sealed for added durability. We can imagine this in your tween, teenager, college students or young adults room. But, it truly could be a gift for anyone on your list! What says I love you more than a heart?
Alyson has a passion to surround hearts and homes with God's Word. She has a beautiful talent when it comes to calligraphy. Can you just imagine waking up and having your favorite tea or coffee in one of these inspirational mugs. What a great way to encourage someone in their quiet time. It might never be the same.
Vinyl wall decals are a great way to bring life to any room. The quote on this decal is adorable and would inspire so many, “Just When the Caterpillar Thought the World was Over it Became a Butterfly.” Check out Abak Design's selection of affordable and easy to apply designs. They come with easy to follow instructions and when you'd like to remove it, no damage will have been done to your walls.
Do you have someone on your gift list that loves to use garland accents to decorate with? This lovely natural beaded wooden garland with wooden hearts and finished with handmade jute tassels, is the perfect addition to anyone's home. They scream farmhouse and can be used to adorn your fireplace, draped over trays, books, strung across your piano, or used to liven up a table's centerpiece. You're Christmas list just keeps getting shorter and shorter!
Can't afford an expensive piece of jewelry for the jewelry lover on your list? Carmen over at Lemon Glaze has you covered with this elegant porcelain jewelry dish with gold luster. The dainty details are stunning! Her prices won't break the bank and you will be giving a gift that could become an heirloom.
When we came across Dena and her crazy good talent at hand lettering, we knew she was the perfect fit for the gift guide. It would be a shame to not share her with the world. She custom lettered wood art pieces. “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein creates a story about the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return. What better time of year to share this story! This quote or any other personalization would make an incredible gift for someone this holiday season.
Cassandra is best known for her string art and we love this “Choose Joy” piece! The sweet phrases and verses on each sign and the detail work that goes into each piece is amazing. Any of her pieces would look beautiful displayed on a wall or simply placed on a shelf. We know this is one you'll want for yourself and one to give away.
Tiny Tulip offers monogramming and adorable gift options. The Prissy Plate Napkin Holder comes complete with an interchangeable bow. It can be used exclusively as a napkin holder or it can be used as a candy dish. This is a great item that can be dressed up for any time of the year by simply changing out the ribbon. Unwrapping this is like unwrapping a number of gifts that are only limited by the imagination of the recipient.
This local Tallahassee store offers so much! When you walk into the store you will be greeted by unique repurposed vintage furniture and home decor. They are a Dixie Belle Paint Exclusive Retailer offering classes teaching how to paint your furniture or they will paint it for you. This lovely “Welcome” sign will usher any guest in with a heart warming feeling. Any entryway would be refreshed by this little beauty.
These prints have such a innocent beauty about them. They would match any room and the quotes share the message you want your loved ones to know and feel this Christmas. Sometimes a piece of simplicity is the best thing you can give someone.
