If you’re anything like me, you are a last-minute Christmas gift shopper. I like to think it’s because I’m better when I’m under pressure, not because I’m a procrastinator. If you’re struggling to think of something special for your special someone, I’ve got you covered. I’m sharing my favorite gift ideas from small businesses that I’m sure your loved ones will be excited about. You’ll be sure to have the most unique present at the gift exchange, and you’ll be supporting a small business, which in turn supports small families, communities, and someone’s big dream.

Piyama: The softest loungewear

I was skeptical about luxury sleepwear until I tried it. This brand makes the softest pajamas I have ever put on my body in the most beautiful patterns. Piyama also has loungewear, baby, and bridal goods. All of their clothing is designed in Australia and produced ethically in Bali. My favorite set is the Maggie, but you can’t go wrong with any of them.

Olo Fragrance: Long-lasting perfume

There is nothing worse than spraying on perfume and not being able to smell it an hour later. Olo uses coconut oil, essential oils, key accords, and absolutes to scent their perfumes. This makes the scent stay longer on the body. A little goes a long way since the perfumes are so concentrated, making the small bottle last a long time. Priced at $45-$55, this 9 ml roller is perfect for a carry-on or stashed in a purse. Not sure which scent to pick? You can order small samples to get your toes wet before taking the plunge. My favorite scent is Lightning Paw.

Vicson: Handmade leather shoes

I love throwing on a statement shoe with a basic outfit to elevate the look. Vicson is female-founded, and each pair of shoes is handmade in Brazil. Their shoes are so unique, and each pair is like a piece of art. Their attention to detail and quality is unmatched. They have shoes for everyone, including sandals, heels, mules, boots, and booties. My picks are Juana, Isabela, and Delphine.

SunHoney: Boho online boutique

Boutiques that are a one-stop-shop are my love language. SunHoney has a little bit of everything: sweaters, dresses, basics, accessories, loungewear, activewear, etc. SunHoney gives off boho, beachy vibes year-round. Their prices are extremely affordable, shipping is free, and Afterpay is available. Check their site for new arrivals weekly.

Clyque The Label: Bodysuits and LBDs

I am a firm believer that everyone needs to have a few basics in their closet. Clyque The Label has absolutely perfected chic bodysuits and LBDs. Their fabrics are extremely soft and stretchy but hold you in in all the right places. They have multiple designs with varying lengths, cuts, and styles. My pick is the Annie.

The Loomia: Luxury home goods

Gifts for the home are perfect for in-laws, a hostess gift, or for someone you might not know very well. Because well, everyone lives somewhere, and practical gifts reign supreme. The Loomia has luxury throws and towels, which make such a special, thoughtful gift. Their patterns and designs are unique. If you’re still unsure what get, play it safe with a gift card.

Necessaire: Natural body essentials

When I used to hear the terms natural body products, hippie potions that smelled like patchouli came to mind. Necessaire has completely changed my outlook. Their products apply like “normal’ products and smell like a trip to the spa. Their products are free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, and synthetic dyes. AKA the bad stuff. They even have fragrance free options for sensitive skin. My pick is the Body Essentials kit in sandalwood.

LINK’D The Label: Affordable gold filled jewelry

Love gold but hate the price? Yeah, me too. Gold filled jewelry is more affordable than solid gold, and it’s almost just as durable. LINK’D has cute necklaces for layering, different sized earrings, and multiple styles of rings and bracelets. Opt for a personal touch with the gothic initial necklace or the bead necklace for understated elegance.

Béis: Chic travel accessories

“I want ugly luggage” -said no one ever! Unfortunately, most luggage isn’t very fashion-forward. Béis has expertly combined function and beauty with all of their travel pieces. Béis isn’t just for your jet-setters on your list- they also have tote bags, diaper bags, backpacks, makeup cases, etc. My personal pick is the cosmetic case. It has a separate compartment for brushes and a built-in mirror.

Summer Fridays: Clean skincare

When a single product has a cult-like following, you know it’s GOOD. The Jet Leg Mask hydrates and gently exfoliates skin without any harsh chemicals. They also have a gel cleanser, vitamin c serum, exfoliating solution, and other masks to choose from. My personal obsession is the lip butter balm.

Penzeys: Gourmet spices

Let’s face it, everyone is doing a little more cooking these days and a little less eating out. Spice up your life (and your meals) with these seasonings. Choose individually or grab a kit. My top picks are the baker’s kit and the grill and broil kit. Order online or pick up curbside throughout multiple locations nationwide.

Rustic Swank: Rustic home accents

My best party trick is the driftwood log soy candle. It is the perfect gift for any occasion and pairs well with other gifts or stands alone perfectly. It’s more thoughtful than any regular candle; this candle doubles as home decor and looks beautiful on a coffee table or in a tablescape. With over 75 scents to choose from, it’s a great hostess gift, Christmas gift, or birthday gift.

I pride myself on finding the perfect gifts for my family and friends. I love introducing my loved ones to new brands I’ve found throughout the year that I think they’ll love. It’s tempting to jump on Amazon and order everything with Prime, but shopping small businesses means your gift will be unique. This year has been hard on everyone, particularly for small businesses. I’d rather spend my money supporting other’s dreams, all while putting a smile on my family’s faces.
