Y’all — I have some really talented friends who have turned their creative hobbies into businesses. I thought it would be fun to put together a little gift guide for the holidays, to help get the word about their adorable, affordable shops.
Allison Parker Designs – My friend Allison started creating custom onesies as baby gifts and got so many requests from friends she decided to open her own shop. There are some super cute patterns (including holiday ones!), and they make great gifts for pregnant friends or new moms.
Cotton & Crumb – My friend Christen makes and sells everything from scarves to jewelry to dog beds and pillows. She’s also a contributor for Darby Smart. I have one of her pillows on my guest bed and LOVE it. See it here.
Cotton & Crumb code: Use the code BETHANKFUL2013 for 15% off any order between now and Monday Dec 2nd
Olivia Jane Accessories – My friend Kim sells jewelry and scarves and it’s all very affordable. I’ve ordered two necklaces and two earrings and always get compliments when I wear them.
Olivia Jane code: Use the code THANKFUL20 for 20% off all orders for the holidays
Toddler Trends – My friend Aubrey has an adorable toddler that wears the cutest bows and dresses. She started to make her own and is now selling them. There are even some bow ties. What’s cuter than a little toddler in a bow tie? (A: nothing.)
Handwritten – My friend Page started a graphic design/paper business and has cute Christmas card designs for sale to customize your holiday card. If I hadn’t ordered mine three weeks ago (I know, I know, too soon), then I would have gotten one of these. So cute!
Have fun shopping!
