Thoughtful Brands I'm Loving this Year.

As small, independent businesses have felt the impact of coronavirus as much as anyone, let's use this holiday gift giving season as a way to support the brands we love with extra intention. 

Here's what I'm loving this 2020 Holiday Season: 

For your full of life sister / sister in law - 

Anything from Kathy Phantastic.

I've got several of these delightful magnetics on my fridge & playful stickers scattered throughout my office as a reminder to smile & not take myself so seriously. Her lower price points are perfect for snagging an extra item or two to tuck in a card or Christmas Stocking.

For your BFFs you haven't seen in forever - 

These earrings from Remnant Studios. 

I have them in gold & even with small kids I throw these on when I want a quick way to look put together. The porcelain is incredibly lightweight & the pop of metallic is the perfect detail. For $32, you could snag a few for the ladies in your life.

For your hard to buy for colleague - 

These botanically dyed silk & cotton scarves

The luxuriousness of all natural materials & hand woven fabric is immediately apparent is this gorgeous emerald scarf. Scarves make for such a perfect gift as the weather turns colder - and I'm confident you'll score some major brownie points in the office for this head turner.

For that person who really appreciates quality.

These handmade wooden coasters from MJ Wood Co.

Just as adorable together on a coffee table as underneath my morning cup of coffee that I have to warm up 3 times before I get around to sitting still long enough to finish it. Unique, quality pieces in my home is my jam.

For yourself.

This all natural linen spray from Slow North

This Wanderlust scent is everything. Not floral, not harsh, not too earthy - just a breath of fresh air. I've been obsessed with their candles since we used to carry them back when we had a retail space on S. Lamar. They last forever & disperse just the right amount of fragrance. I've not tried their linen spray, but it's 100% going on my wishlist!
