I know Christmas is not about getting gifts, but I sure do love buying and giving gifts to those I love. It is probably one of my favorite shopping season because of all the deals that can be found in nearly every store.
I like to shop at the big box stores as much as anyone, but I am going to encourage you this season to buy a few of your gifts from small business owners. Trust me when I say that you will get personal care and customer service when you order from a fellow mama. That isn’t to say big box stores don’t care or offer good customer service, but it is different. You will see.
A few gifts I am eyeing to give this season:
Lola Jane Naturals Bath and Body products. I discovered them on Instagram while stalking Magnolia’s Silobration IG stories. They were one of the vendors at the event and I just ooh’d and aah’d over all of their products. They have fizzing bath cubes in different scents, natural body care for mama and baby, skin care and so much more. They are a natural company using the finest ingredients and I am just obsessed. Their sets will be perfect as gifts!
Accessories, leggings, scarves. Those always make fantastic gifts. They are easy and well priced. I know that my sister and my mom always love a good scarf or a good pair of fuzzy socks as gifts because those are gifts that they will use all the time. Practical gifts are good, folks! You can find some fun goodies in my Poshmark closet!
I am part hippy. I admit it. I love the idea of filling up my home with holistic care than with a whole bunch of over the counter medication. I realize those do have uses, especially when natural remedies don’t work, but I want us to utilize nature first before reaching for the drugs. Essential oils are my favorite and this company, Plant Therapy is one of my favorite oil companies to purchase my oils from. My kids are obsessed with having their own set of oils that are safe for them to use and diffuse in their room during the day or at night when they have trouble sleeping. They are an incredibly family owned business and I highly recommend them!
They don’t just offer oils, either. They have other products as well such as diffusers (this one is on my Christmas wish list) and other accessories, books, tools and more!
My friends up in Washington have this gorgeous shop called Born Again Brand. They are a Scripture Typography company and you have to check out their items. That coffee mug you see is one of them listed and is available for purchase. I love a good coffee mug as a gift. I can never have too many mugs. They have homegoods, wall décor, travel mugs and their designs are beautiful and each come with an inspiring scripture designed onto their products. LOVE. Go check them out and tell them Tiff said Hi!
