Holiday Gift Guide

Whether you’re shopping for Dad, your kiddos, your BFF, yourself (your secret is safe with us), or anyone on your nice list, we’ve got you covered with our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!

1. The Tiny Tassel is a jewelry and accessories brand inspired by the vibrant colors of Charleston, SC, and we are swooning over The Magnolia Tassle Earring. Each piece is named after a street name or special place in Charleston by the founder, Mimi.

2. For the mamas who run on caffeine, the cost of a daily Starbucks or Peet's can add up quickly; in fact, a mom who spends $5 a day on their espresso habit ends up "investing" nearly $2,000 per year. Save time and money by making your own cup o’ Joe with this Nespresso beauty.

3. Elevate the look of your kitchen or bath with this striped beauty, aka the Afar Tea Towel, that was handwoven in Ethiopia. Although homemade, this cotton towel is exceptionally soft, absorbent, and machine washable, so it can take on mom-life. Founded by Hana Getachew, Bolé Road Textiles collections are full of vibrant colors and graphic patterns that are a direct result of her upbringing in a home filled with traditional Ethiopian textiles (she was born there!)

4. If you like to cook, bake, or entertain, these beautiful, handmade bowls by nocrumbsleft are a kitchen must-have. Not only do they look beautiful displayed on a shelf or china cabinet, but they are also functional and one-of-a-kind. Each piece of nocrumbsleft pottery is handmade and hand-glazed by their talented potters.

5. Crush your fitness goals with the new Apple Watch that motivates you to move, stand, exercise, and keep an eye on your heart rate & sleep patterns. As the cool kids are saying, it’s the upgrades and band colors for me.

6. You know that joke that moms have to reheat their morning coffee or tea 12 times before getting to drink it warm? Oh wait, that’s real-life...welp, this handy gadget is changing that. This Ember smart mug allows you to control the temp of what’s in it right from your smartphone.

7. A mother-daughter duo is behind the Eu'Genia Shea brand (which loosely translates to “origin of goodness: in Greek); this healing balm collection is made from clean ingredients that heal & moisturize. The Eu'Genia brand and its founders are dedicated to fair wages and opportunities for our female workers in Ghana and donate 15% of their profits back to them in the form of an education fund.

8. Keep your toes and feet warm and cozy with these stylish leopard print Ugg slippers!

9. Take on your morning workout, chase your toddler around, or run errands in the most comfortable tennis shoe EVER.

13. Whether you’re looking to work in silence with the chaos of distance learning behind you, tune out the rest of the world on a run, or take a conference call hands-free, these Bose Sport Earbuds are wireless, Bluetooth, weather and sweat-resistant, & full of other cool features.

14. Bring color and fun into your home with this Estelle Colored Wine Stemware Set. We put these on the list for their pretty looks and their story: the founder of Estelle Colored Glass named the collection in honor of her grandmother, Estelle, who she describes as "a jewel of a person that instilled in me an appreciation of the pastime of treasure hunting for beautiful finds -- especially for the kitchen which was the heart of her home." This set’s glasses are hand-blown colored glass made by glass artisans in Poland.

15.
