Ok, I admit it, this roundup is a wish list masquerading as a gift guide. Though, I have to say that aside from those amazing flat ankle boots (only because they're pricey), I would happily gift each and every item on this list, instantly making me some kind of gift hero.
I was reluctant to create a gift guide at all because there's so many great ones floating around the interwebs right now. But, then I thought, if I don't create one how will my family know what to give me. I joke! My aim with this guide was to select and support products that were either made by hand or by companies/artists that are independently owned. (The California photo album is actually a company that my two girlfriends just recently launched, KT Design COllective. The entire collection is full of really cute designs, so make sure to check them when you get the chance.)
Here are some other holiday gift guides that I thought were just great, and very helpful:
- Creature Comforts - Ez of Creature Comforts really does an amazing job of curating the best gifts for everyone on your list. The bonus: Most of her items are things I haven't seen before.
- Rue Magazine - Another great roundup of gifts categorized by fun types like the Preppy Pal, Etsy Enthusiast, Whimsical Lady, and more.
- To and From Gift Guide - Created by Meg Biram and Modern Eve, bloggers unite and come together to create the ultimate gift guide. Rest assured, there is something for everyone in this very comprehensive guide.
So, do you already know what you're getting for everyone on your list? Have you found any other great gift guides that you can share here?
