Hi friends! Today I’m sharing my small business gift guide. This is one of my favorites for so many reasons, but mostly because I love supporting small businesses. Many of these small businesses are owned by friends. And I love to support my friends and see them succeed! Also, there are no affiliate links in this post, just direct links to each retailer. With such an uncertain year, I hope we can all support small businesses any chance possible. Plus, there are so many fun gifts for everyone in your life available! Now, let’s chat gifts and small businesses.
one / Instaballoons
A brother and sister that I grew up with started this awesome balloon business based in New Jersey. It has become my go-to resource over big box stores because they have an incredible selection. They have every balloon for every occasion that you can dream of. They ship fast and sell all of the pumps to make balloon blowing easier. Their Instagram is a great resource for inspiration and they have amazing customer service!
two / Azzurra Capri
One of my dearest friends owns this hand-made sandal company based in San Diego. I personally own three pairs and am coveting more. They are incredibly well-made with no detail left out. They’re truly works of art for your feet. The more your wear them, the better they fit your foot, making them incredibly comfortable. I’m swooning over the Zodiac sandals right now, hint, hint.
three / The Better Skin Co.
I wish I could describe how much I love this face oil to you all. It’s so moisturizing and smells divine with clean ingredients. The best part is that it is a completely reasonable price for such a thing, too! I use this daily in the morning and get my dose of Vitamin C while moisturizing and soothing with Vitamin E. If you’re looking for a versatile anti-aging serum, this is it friends!
four / Team Project360
Not only is this a small female-owned business, it is also a charitable one. My friend Kim owns this brand of comfortable sweatshirts, tee shirts and accessories, all made in the United States. Unique materials like recycled leather are used to encourage up-cycling. Various charities receive donations from sales, many of which are smaller organizations who rely entirely on that income. The clothing fits true to size all around if you prefer a form fit, size up if not!
five / Barre3 East Cobb
This is my favorite local workout studio, which I mention on Instagram, frequently. I’ve been taking Barre3 classes online and in studio for over seven years, and it remains my favorite. There is cardio, strength, interval training, basically a little bit of every all in one. The workout is constantly evolving, meaning no boredom! I love the community it provides and how amazing I feel after a class. It truly gives me a sense of strength that no other workout can!
six / The Monogram Corner
I love every single item I have ever purchased from The Monogram Corner. She has the most perfectly preppy array of items for the home, yourself and kids. I have several pairs of earrings, including the ones pictured, all of which would be great gifts. She also stocks tons of gifts perfect for teachers or family!
seven / Dyes Happy
I’m a big fan of my friend Kate’s brand, Dyes Happy. She is a cancer survivor who hand dyes fabrics using various methods. She makes amazing designs from wall hangings to masks and lanyards. Recently she began selling kits with scraps for kids, which are very popular in our house. We are also big fans of her ice dye kits! Every single item is one of a kind and she knows how to make truly unique and beautiful pieces.
eight / The Chinoiserie Bee
If you love chinoiserie as much as I do, then this brand is for you! Andrea is an incredibly talented artist who hand paints ornaments and various canvas paintings. I scored a painting recently, and I am in awe of how beautiful it is! The best is that she prices everything affordably because she believes that art should be accessible.
nine / Willow Park Boutique
I adore this local boutique, which is quickly gaining a cult following on Instagram. Their curated pieces are timeless and closet staples. The prices range from affordable to splurges, making them appealing to everyone. You can see the thought that goes into the pieces they choose to sell and how much they truly love beautiful clothing at every price.
ten / Pixie Lane Eldar
Pixie Lane is the most fun kids’ clothing in adorable patterns and amazing fabrics! Riley, Avery and Greyson all wear Pixie Lane and love their washed cotton fabric. There are also women’s items, and I own several tops and leggings. I love that the leggings suck you in and come in really unique patterns. My friend Eldar sells them through her Facebook page and offers amazing customer service!
