If any of you are like me you still have some serious Christmas shopping to do, so Emma and I thought it would be fun to share some gift ideas. Happy December!
This first pick is for my fellow Detroit natives. Aptemal Clothing was founded in 2007 and quickly gained popularity with their signature slogan “Detroit hustles harder.” Currently, their clothing is housed in Division Street Boutique in the city’s well known Eastern Market. You can feel great about providing a stylish gift by a company who believes in local products and staying committed to their city.
The Kinfolk Table: Recipes for Small Gatherings is a book about entertaining, culture, and the important act of sharing meals with one another. The book is produced by Kinfolk, a slow lifestyle magazine that’s published quarterly. This makes a great gift for the foodies in your life or those who love a good coffee table book. It’s also available through Amazon and other major book vendors.
This adorable crocheted hanger comes with three little air plants to add a ton of whimsy to any space. The best part: they’re very low maintenance.
I LOVE Pomme Frites candles. The Los Angeles company makes small batch candles from domestically grown soy wax. Teakwood & Tobacco is my favorite, but there’s a scent to suit any taste. They’re sold online as well as in stores internationally.
I’ve been loving gold jewelry lately. It goes with everything and can be dressed up or down. These gold ear climbers are a pretty twist on the classic gold earring.
Add this to your bar set and learn a new drink while mopping up any spills.
I recently found out that I am going to be an aunt come May and I cannot stop browsing etsy for baby gifts. I purchased these adorable, eco-friendly rattles for my sister and brother-in-law so their baby can learn to love vegetables early on.
This one is at the top of my list. It is the perfect addition to a gallery wall for any Chicagoan to show a little pride for this great city. Not from the windy city? Check out the rest of Alex Elko’s design store for other city prints.
My good friend is selling these ultra-cozy scarfs that will keep you warm all winter long. You can literally wrap yourself in them like a blanket, so you stay cozy even in the coldest of destinations.
Could there be a more basic Christmas gift? I’m not sure. In all truthfulness, I get 100% of my socks as gifts, which is good because I’ve usually lost most of them by the time Christmas rolls around. Keep those toes warm with a pair of funky socks from this Portland sock shop.
