Easter Shopping Guide

Daisy McClellanComment

For us Easter is the official start of Spring. Break out the color clothes and get festive with your hostess gifts. We've put together a little shopping guide for the weekend. Hop on in for more ideas!

Instead of one of those plastic baskets, opt for a locally made pouch to fill that she can re-use as a make-up bag. And how perfect is this bunny one?

Add our DIY Nail Polish Kit to your Easter gift. What could be more fun than a lazy afternoon of creating your own custom nail polish colors with your kiddos!

For brunch we're dreaming of wearing this dress with our favorite wedges. 

Throw on our easy to wear Navy Cross Hatch Kimono so you can play games and search for eggs in comfort with the little ones. 

Add our favorite gloss and you are set for an effortless weekend!

Don't forget a hostess gift! We love this grown up gift "basket" full of everything for the foodie in your life (including Easter chocolate)!

Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Daisy McClellanComment

Last week we published our annual gift guide for him. Now it's time to focus on the ladies in your life. Here is our holiday gift guide for her:

Give your main squeeze one of the new jewelry pieces we collaborated with Silver Sheep Jewelry to design. Pick from the ring, necklace, and ear climbers, all plated in 14K gold vermeil. The laurel designs is perfect to wear everyday alone or layered with other pieces. These will surely bring a smile to her face!

Spoil your family something warm and cozy. Our Bodhi Swag cocoons are our most popular holiday gift year after year. We love this season's colors and prints. Because these wraps are reversible, you are actually giving her two gifts! Also a bonus - they are one size fits all so you don't need to worry about figuring out the perfect size. And every generation loves these - our teenage cousin, our mom, and even our grandmother! Combine this with a hand crocheted beanie and knitted cowl by Mary Marie Knits (available in a variety of colors) and you will fully prepare you family for the winter ahead.

Not only are best friends given that label because they are the best, but because they deserve the best! Give her the gift of rejuvenation with this Relaxation Gift Box. Each gift box is carefully curated in our shop and includes a luxurious handmade jar of bath salt soak by Lighten Up Shoppe, a candle by JaxKelly complete with hidden crystal inside, a large pouch of tea from Steep Tea, Co., and a calming roll-on essential oil by Let’s Put a Bird On It. 

What about the stockings? Grab one of our vintage fabric stockings from the shop and fill it with goodies from our local artists. Start with a Lady Alamo Zip, add a nail polish by Floss Gloss, toss in a Chai Tea Soap by Etta+Billie, grab a natural deodorant by Fat and the Moon, and finish it off with calming balm by Peachy Brand. O and don't forget the chocolate!

Why not give an experience gift? Choose from one of our workshops coming up in the new year. It's the perfect opportunity to learn a new skill. Or give them a gift card so they can choose their own gift. Need more ideas? Stop by the shop and let us help you put together the perfect gift! Also enjoy FREE shipping on any order in our online shop through Monday by using the code "FREESHIP2016". Remember to place your order by Monday December 19th to get it in time for Christmas!

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Daisy McClellanComment

Freaking out because you just realized it’s December and you haven’t crossed any names off your shopping list? No worries! Our annual holiday gift guide for him is here!

What do you get for that special someone in your family who is sooo hard to shop for? Yep, we're talking about Dad. Sometimes you don’t need to get super fancy and realize that Dad just wants a cold beer. But make sure he enjoys his refreshment in style with this 16oz etched pint glass by the uncommon green. Each glass is etched with the streets, neighborhoods, and coordinates of the San Francisco Bay Area. This design is also available as an 11oz rocks glass and pairs well with the California State Slate. Perfect for displaying cheeses and charcuterie while hosting guests.

Don't forget about your brother (or your brother from another mother!) We love our wooden California shaped bottle opener from Newton Booth Build. Each piece is hand cut from either cherry or walnut wood and sticks sturdily to any magnetic surface. 

Isn’t it funny how when we’re kids, we thought getting socks from grandpa and grandma was a form of punishment? Where’s the good stuff? As we grow older, we realize that socks ARE the good stuff! Return the favor by treating them to luxury socks by Little River Sock Mill. Made in Fort Payne, AL, these socks are made with organic cotton and are available in a variety of colors and patterns in both mens and womens sizes. Makes for a great stocking stuffer for the rest of the family, too!

Is it hard to plan things with your husband on Sunday because there is a game on? If you can’t beat them, join them! Show him you have team spirit, too, by giving him this Golden State Tee by Culk. Graphic has a vintage feel and is printed on a super soft cotton/poly/rayon blend tee. Top off this spirited gift with a handmade pennant by Erin of Feed the Fish, Co. Pennants are available in a variety of colors and sayings.

Are you waiting for your boyfriend to make the big move?...to get rid of his old wallet? Ya, I thought so. Surprise him with a new wallet by Tram-Anh Designs. Made in San Jose, Tram-Anh makes their products with recycled bicycle tubes, vinyl banners, and other found materials. Styles range from a more traditional bi-fold to variety of card sleeve options for a sleeker look. So not only are you getting him to use a new wallet, but you are helping him reduce his carbon footprint!

What about your employees or co-workers? Thank them for being awesome this year with our bartender gift box? Who wouldn't want a kit filled with goodies from our makers all about making your own cocktails?

Need more ideas? Stop by the shop anytime from 11-7 thru the holidays and we can help! And stay tuned for our gift guide for her.
