Shop Local – The Holiday Gift Guide
Our 2020 annual gift guides for the holiday season are kicking off. We’re starting with our Shop Local Guide, after all – why not keep it local if we can. Some of these items require some planning ahead (homemade pottery, or commissioned art to name a few).
Our friends at Kisa Boutique have newly launched products, including these colorful throws. Affordable home decor + the perfect gift for those staying inside this season.
I’ve always wanted a set of homemade pottery, Buttermilk Ceramics checks all the boxes for local gifting. Lead times apply here, plan early!
While you’re at it, throw in a gift card to Honey & Rye with those homemade coffee/cocoa mugs. Make a morning out of it and place an online order for sweet and savory croissants. (Gift cards sold in $5 increments).
Do you have a favorite crafter in your life, or one interested in learning more. Grab a colorful wool stock bundle kit from Blue Sky Fibers, so many online tutorials to get started with your favorite knitting project. Sure to keep anyone busy for the cold months ahead.
We added one of these custom local art pieces to our daughter’s gallery wall several years ago. It remains a favorite piece as we’re redesigning her new bedroom around this art. Art by Aleisha has a wide variety of local cities and destinations on her site.
Batch made local candles made in MN, using the highest quality ingredients. aka, you won’t get a headache after burning Excelsior Candles for a few hours.
A new favorite, and we’ve already gifted a few of these this year. Local throw and quilt makers, Louise Gray are paying homage to a local craft using all MN artisans. A nod to sustainability, making our lives a little bit cozier this season as well.
Ok, we’re a little biased. We’ve come to know the maker behind MEND jewelry pretty well. Jordyn is just as amazing as her delicate and sophisticated jewelry pieces. Something for everyone, so go ahead and grab a few giftable pieces for the season.
I’m an 8 on the Enneagram, I am type A .. I love any and all organizational tools. But Russell + Hazel has taken over and I am obsessed with their three ring binders. Color coding and all sorts of options to clip into the binder. Organization has never looked so pretty, perfect for the go getter in your life.
Travel totes for your suitcase or your backpack/purse organization. Available in three colors, Austin | Fowler totes are the perfect gift for the traveler in your life. The largest pouch doubles as your game day ‘see through’ bag with a clip on strap. So smart!
Our favorite local green house is Tonkadale. PACKED with inspiration, and one of the most instagramable stops in the Twin Cities. We love to stock up on seasonal plants, decor and everyday home goods. Give a gift of a gift card or pop in for a fun treasure to share.
Maybe a locally made libation is the perfect gift, in which case we’re big fans of Tattersall Distilling, and when the time is right, a visit to their distillery is a must local stop!
We hope your enjoy our collection of local makers + artisans. If we could add custom cabinetry to the list, we would do it in a heartbeat. But for now, our cabinet shop orders will remain reserved for our remodeling clients. *wink wink. Happy Holidays to you and yours, now get out there and support a local maker!
