Thanksgiving has just passed, and we are now jumping into the next season of festivities... Christmas! When it comes to the holidays, there are so many things to be joyful about. Decorating your home, entertaining guests, wrapping presents, and so much more. One of my absolute favorite things about Christmas is giving intentional gifts. I truly enjoy gifting more than receiving and each step in the gifting process is so exciting!
The biggest thing I think about while I shop during this time of the year is supporting businesses that I love. I try to primarily shop from small and eco conscious companies. This is not an option for everybody, but if you can afford it and have access to these sweet companies go support them!
Hobie Surf Shop
My family has been going to Hobie Surf Shop for as long as I can remember. We love Hobie so much we named our dog after this special store! Hobie carries small brands that are local to the area as well as those surf brands you know and love. The store I typically shop at is the Laguna Beach location, but Dana Point is just as amazing.
Stoney Clover Lane
When I can't decide what to get somebody it can feel frustrating. I always want it to be personal and feel unique to each recipient. Stoney Clover is perfect for this! They customize adorable fanny packs, makeup bags, and more. You can choose from many colors and styles to find a perfect match for your gift receiver.
The best gift to give a girlfriend, aunt, neighbor, or teacher. I am obsessed with these candles! They have a deal where you can get 2 candles for $30, 5 for $68, or 10 for $118! You get incredible value for the price and the smells are unmatched.
Buy My Bikes
I asked my dad for his suggestion on what business to support this season, and Buy My Bikes was his answer with no hesitation. They really are the best bike shop ever, and if you are in the market to get a new bike or give someone lucky a shiny new toy, head over to Buy My Bikes! Fun fact: I may have been in their commercial when I was young ;)
Linden Ave. will be on my gift guides every year. If you are into cool jewelry you must order a pair of earrings from them. These are statement pieces, but aren't heavy at all!! They really add that magical touch to every outfit and don't break the bank.
Richer Poorer is one of my favorite brands for high quality basics. They carry something for everybody, ranging from cute sweatsuits to cozy socks. They also donate 1% of their annual sales to the planet, which is COOL. Right now their whole site is 30% off! Go check it out and grab some gifts.
This is the easiest gift ever. Any human on the earth can use a Baggu. You can use them for anything! They have bags that fold up into your purse or backpack as well as home goods, hats, fanny packs, and makeup bags. I even wrap my presents in them!
Those are just a few of the MANY companies I adore and will be supporting this gifting season. I hope that if you are needing some inspiration on where to shop that this sparked an idea in you! Keep an eye out for more holiday blogs throughout this absolutely wonderful season.
P.S. I am so thankful for you!!! Thanks for reading. Share it with a friend:)
