Good Monday morning friends!! I hope you all had a very blessed Thanksgiving and if you went Black Friday shopping I hope you got all the deals you were looking for. Its been a tradition in my family since I can remember to go Black Friday shopping, although the details of Black Friday have changed a lot, my sister, the Mr. and I still keep the tradition. While I love the tradition and fun of it all, I also LOVE supporting small shops!! I’ve made so many maker friends over the last two years and today I thought I would share a few of them with you and maybe help you finish up your Christmas shopping!! (Also, if you missed my gift guide last year you can find it ((here)). Its packed full of amazing makers as well!)
First on the list is my sweet friend Melissa at My Trusted Treasures. I absolutely love her and her sign making skills. Simple + beautiful! She can also customize many of her signs making them a more personalized gift. I’m sure you’ve seen them in a lot of my photos, she’s really been my go to gal for signs this year! You can find her shop ((here)) and if you’re looking to order a sweet sign for you, a family member or friend be sure to get your order in soon. Her turn around time is roughly 3 weeks and the cut off for Christmas shipping is December 3rd! I hope you love your grain sack, shiplap or mini sign you snag from her shop!!
There’s something about fall and winter, maybe its the low temperatures or change of scenery but I love burning candles!! Not only do they make your home smell amazing (if you pick the right one ;-)) but they also add so much to the cozy factor! A soft knit blanket, a candle and a hot cup of coffee…those are the things dreams are made of right?! My favorite small shop for candles is by far Antique Candle Works. Their candles are the yummiest. I’ve currently been burning Good Tidings and Christmas day, between the warm smells and cozy flicker of the flame, our home has been feeling more and more like a sweet Christmas cottage. There are so many amazing smells to choose from, sizes and they even have fun sales where they use different items like tea cups and coffee cans to pour their wax in! Such a fun little shop I know you’ll love! You can find them ((here)) and be sure to get your order in soon. They have a turn around time of 3-5 business days and their Christmas cut off is December 21st.
Coffee…y’all know how much I love my coffee so its no surprise that I love cute coffee mugs too! This adorable camp style mug is from Andrea at 31 Girl at Home. This cute mug is the perfect gift for any shiplap loving, Fixer Upper fan and I know y’all have at least one on your list. 😉 You can find this sweet mug ((here)), Andreas turn around time is 1-3 business days and her Christmas shipping cut off date is December 10th so don’t miss out on placing your order!
Signs are the easiest piece of décor to incorporate into any style and there are so many styles of signs to choose from. I love this simple Christmas sign from The Freckled Goose. Her hand lettering is amazing!! She has many options in her little shop for signs, mugs and tees ((here)) AND she offers a lettering guide if you’d like to learn yourself or know someone that would!!! So many great gifting options to choose from! In order to ensure Christmas delivery, you must place your order by December 11th and there is a 1-2 week turn around time.
For the French style vintage lover this next little shop is perfect! Jenni at The Vintage Songbird ((here)) has the sweetest farm house décor in her shop. From pillow covers and poufs to bead garlands and these sweet little grain sack wall sconces! I love this red grain sack wall sconce for this time of year but I also love her more neutral blue stripe for all year! There are so many options with this gorgeous piece, fresh blooms, faux stems, dried wedding flowers, the options are endless! Her fabric skills are also just as amazing! Jenni has a turn around time of 7-10 business days and her Christmas deadline for orders is December 15th so be sure to get your orders in by then!
My last little shop for this Christmas gift guide is Pam at The Sign Yard Studio. She makes these adorable wall hangings and I’m slightly obsessed with this Christmas one I received from her! Her shop is full of gorgeous options for any home and I know y’all will love her work as much as I do!! There’s just something so simple and sweet about her creations! You can find The Sign Yard studio ((here)). Pam has a turn around time of 3-4 business days and her Christmas shipping cut off is December 15th!!
Friends, that wraps up this little gift guide for today. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did and I hope it helped you check a few names off your list! I love supporting small shops and really there’s no better gift than a handmade one!! These makers are so very talented and also very sweet and fun to work with! **Don’t forget today is Cyber Monday and because of that, a lot of these shops are running sales and specials!!! Run!! 😉
