Just a disclaimer: I love shopping conveniently (#internetshopping) and supporting small businesses! This guide will give you some of my favorite holiday picks that are easy to snag with the click of a button with lots of small business options!

10. Girl, Wash Your Face!

 Girl, Wash Your Face became the #1 New York Times Bestseller in just a few short months. This book skyrocketed before it even hit the market! I have this book listed because if there is a lady in your life who hasn’t read it yet, get this for her! It is basically the ultimate, current self-help book! Rachel Hollis perfectly diminishes the lies you’ve heard about who you are and helps guide you to unlock the woman you are. She’s truthful, hysterical, and has the best one-liners to get you motivated. Snag her book here from Amazon. 


9. Instapot

Now, I know this is a biggin’, but sometimes you need a killer gift. I have been vetting my friends and family members that broke down and bought an Instapot, and I have loved the reviews so much that I have this on my Christmas wishlist now! Faster than a crockpot, and often times meat comes out even more tender! Is that even possible!? Full meals in minutes… this is the perfect gift for the working lady, moms AND dads, and those of us who aren’t great planners but who love a good homecooked meal! Check out this Instapot from Amazon here! 


8. Cozy + Cable Knit Blankets

There are so many cozy blankets out there, and you just cannot go wrong with them for a Christmas gift! Big, comfy blankets have to be my favorite thing about getting cozy and double as home decor! Here are a few of my favorites from Amazon below!


7. Candles

Being a small business owner, I truly love supporting other small businesses. I found 2 fantastic candle company through Instagram.

The first one is called Tiny Fox Candle Co by Andrea. Andrea has the most delicious handmade soy candles and just unleashed the most adorable coffee mugs! Yall have to check her shop out and give her a follow on Instagram! She is also a military spouse, so I love them even more! Thank you, Andrea + family for your service and yummy candles!



The second candle company is Flashpoint Candles. Flashpoint is known for their amazing variety of citronella candles, but they don’t stop there! They also have wonderful smelling candles seasonally, with a huge selection of different jars. From gunmetal to sleek pottery, there is definitely a style + scent for everyone! Probably their most popular candle is the huge coconut citronella candle, which hides the majority of the citronella + works like a charm!

6. Beginner Calligraphy Set

Let her get out her creativity! I got a lot of beginner calligraphy sets last year, and I really loved them! This beginner set by Tombow is by far my favorite. Hand-lettering has been a huge outlet for me. I also added a beginning watercolor set, because I have so many friends who have loved theirs!



5. Everybody Always

Bob Goff released another New York Times bestseller this year called “Everybody Always.” This book guides you to learn how to ‘love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction.’ He goes into different ways to love yet protecting yourself by choosing the right people to have in your corner, as well as finding the beauty in the ashes. Everyone stormed to get this book since most have read his other best seller “Love Does.” I highly recommend both books if your lady (or you) haven’t read them yet!

4. Throw Pillows

Throw pillows are typically the finishing touch of decor for women and the bane of any man’s existence. Of course, I believe the more throw pillows you have, the better! Another small business that I have been swooning over is With Lavender and Grace by Bianca. Bianca handmakes gorgeous, quality throw pillow covers. She has several fantastic collections from grainsack to linen, faux leather to mudcloth. WLG has a great selection of year-round staples while also offering plenty of holiday and seasonal options. If you check her out on Instagram, she will even give you loads of styling tips! I don’t know any lady who would be unhappy getting a throw pillow from With Lavender and Grace! And, don’t forget to always get your down pillow inserts!


3. Handmade Mugs

Another amazing small business is Sweet Mint Handmade Goods. I love Chloe’s flair for design + her classy mixed with a bit of sass. This will honestly be your number 1 place to find coffee mugs once you check her out! I have posted a few of my favorites below, but she has a huge collection on her Etsy shop, so check it out!

2. Handpainted Signs

Can anyone go wrong with a classic farmhouse sign? I think not. Taylor over at This Hand Painted Home offers gorgeous, hand-painted custom signs. I am dying over her Christmas collection, but she definitely has a great variety for every day and seasonal signs. Her signs are also very reasonably priced, especially for the quality + love put into each sign. Check her out on Instagram and Etsy! Here are a few of my favorites below!

1. Home Girl Sweatshirt

What lady doesn’t love to curl up on a cold night with her handmade mug, a good book, a cozy blanket, and a comfy sweatshirt? Yeah, I’m about to go make some hot cocoa now! But honestly, I love this Home Girl Sweatshirt from Cloth + Cabin. Seriously, Amy & Meredith are adorable, kind, and curate some dang good home decor + clothing items! I picked the home girl sweatshirt, because it just fits as a cozy, perfect holiday gift, but honestly, anything you find in their shop, I know your lady will love! Especially if you check out the Cotton Stem collectionErin is my spirit animal, and I loved her partnership collection!
