Small Business Gift Guide 2020

With Christmas a little over three weeks away it’s time to get those gifts ordered! I am so behind this year and need to get started! More people are shopping online this year, which means shipping delays so make sure you get those gifts ordered early to ensure they’re under the tree on Christmas! For today’s gift guide I wanted to feature a variety of small businesses. As you all know, small businesses have been hit really hard this year due to COVID, so it’s more important than ever to shop small as often as you can! This gift guide has a wide range of gifts (and price points!) to shop from – whether you’re shopping for mom, your best friend, or your girlfriend. Some of these items I personally own or have ordered this season and others are new-to-me brands that I’m looking forward to supporting this year. You can see all of my other gift guides HERE.

small business gift guide 2020

  1. HANDWRITTEN PERSONALIZED NECKLACE | My friend Jenn got me a personalized necklace from this shop when I had Noah and it’s one of my favorite pieces. She worked with Nick to write Noah’s name, so it’s personalized to how he writes Noah’s name. I love that I always have a piece of my two boys with me! The shop also has a lot of different pieces too.
  2. CANVAS MONOGRAMMED MAKEUP BAG | Tuckernuck is a fabulous small business that carries a wide variety of brands. I love this monogram makeup bag and really like that it can be washed, too!
  3. CUSTOM HOME PORTRAIT | This would be such a sweet, thoughtful gift for new homeowners this holiday season.
  4. LISI LERCH TASSEL EARRINGS | I have been a fan of Lisi Lerch for over 7 years now. The brand makes the most fun statement earrings and I have countless pair of the tassel style.
  5. “STUFF” POUCH | Stoney Clover Lane is one of those brands that is just fun to browse! They offer the coolest products and every single item can be customized with patches or stickers! I have a few of their products and always get compliments on them.
  6. PERSONALIZED STATIONERY | I stumbled upon Joy Creative Shop when I was browsing for Christmas gifts and I’m so glad I did! She has so many cute, affordable stationery options. I really love the recipe cards and the list maker notepad.
  7. WEEZIE TOWELS SHORT SLEEVE ROBE | My short sleeve robe is the MVP of getting ready. I always like to be “dressed” when getting ready, but would always end up hot in tradition long sleeve robes. This is the perfect alternative. Weezie also makes beautiful custom towels.
  8. MONOGRAMMED TOTE BAG | This is by the same brand as the makeup bag above and would make a good gift for almost anyone. This tote can be used to run daily errands as a reusable bag at the grocery store, or even as a beach bag. The price is fantastic, too!
  9. TORTOISE SHELL SUNGLASSES | These sunglasses give me Jackie O vibes! A perfect gift for the fashionista in your life.
  10. TASSEL STATEMENT EARRINGS | I discovered The Tiny Tassel over the summer and she has the cutest items, whether you want a fun pair of earrings or need cute cocktail napkins for a party.
  11. PERSONALIZED POUCHES | This set of pouches is under $50 and would make a great gift. I love using pouches like this to keep my bags organized. White Elephant Designs has so many wonderful gifts, including the *cutest* baby clothes!
  12. CHAPPYWRAP BLANKET | I have written about my love of Chappywrap before, but these blankets are so, so good. They’re the perfect weight – I’m always comfortable, not too hot and not too cold when I’m bundled up in one. Even better? They wash so well over time! I even have a few of the mini blankets for Noah.
  13. LAKE PAJAMAS SET | If you are looking for a pair of luxe, uber soft pajamas, look no further than Lake Pajamas. They are worth all the hype and more. I have a few pair, including their maternity set.
  14. FRASIER FIR CANDLE | There’s nothing better than this smell during the holidays season! It always makes our home feel extra festive.
  15. GIGI NEW YORK TOTE | I have been a fan of GiGi New York since 2012 or 2013. They make so many different bags and accessories and the quality is truly unmatched. Every single one of my bags still look brand new and have held up well over time. This tote is one of my favorites, it’s great for work or everyday use.
  16. SAIL TO SABLE DRESS | Sail to Sable is a small business made up of the nicest women. They make a mix of classic and trendy pieces and I always love seeing what they come out with each season.
  17. 2021 LINEN PLANNER | Get a head start on 2021 with a really cute planner!
  18. BARRINGTON GIFTS PERSONALIZED TOTE | Barrington Gifts has a little bit of everything – whether you’re looking for a weekender for your husband, a gift for your sister or a tote for yourself. Everything is customizable and it’s so fun to play around with all of the different color way options.
  19. GOLD NAME NECKLACE | These necklaces are so popular and would be fun for a new mom!
  20. CUSTOM NAME PUZZLE | We are getting Noah one of these puzzles for Christmas and I’m so excited about it. Busy Puzzle has a wide variety of puzzles (including an ABC puzzle) and each one has a lot of color options to fit your child and aesthetic.
  21. CLARE PAINT | ok, I know it’s weird to have paint on a gift guide but hear me out! If you and your S.O. decided to opt out of presents and do a house project instead, then Clare needs to be on your radar. They have a wide range of colors and are Zero VOC. Their samples are the best (they’re peel and stick) and are very accurate. We have used them for Noah’s nursery and bathroom and our dining room and have been so pleased.
  22. THE HOUSE OF NOA MAT | The House of Noa makes beautiful mats, whether you’re looking for a comfy kitchen mat or a playmate. They’re thick and can easily be cleaned. Their patterns are gorgeous. I think we may order a playmat in the future once Noah is a bit more mobile.
