My shout out to little businesses is my favorite gift guide to write! This small shop gift guide is narrowed down to 6 little gems: the treasures I tell everyone who will listen about, the minority owned and the mom owned, and the entrepreneurs hustling after working hours are over to put their beautiful dreams out into the world.
I am simply sharing all of these small business out of love and support. Most are of these shops are not affiliate links because that’s not the goal. I am an affiliate partner with Etsy. You can read more about my disclosure policy here.
Small Shop Gift Guide
This gift guide is curated: my 6 favorites; high quality treasure troves that have great customer service because they actually care very much about what you think. Supporting local or small gives me that warm fuzzy feeling inside! Do good, feel good, get something good!
I have codes for discounts from several of the stores so read below before you shop!
I could not create a small shop gift guide without including Cailini Coastal because her shop speaks to my soul. This is a high end home goods store – everything is blue, white and to die for! Meg, the owner, gives 100% of profits to Family Promise, a non-profit that helps families hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.
I have a few of her pretties in my home. These are occasion gifts to buy someone very special, a beautiful wedding gift or a house warming – or to spoil yourself with.
She was kind enough to give me a code that is only good through December 1st. CHRISSYMARIE15 takes 15% off everything except the holiday collection
Milagro was an obvious business for the small shop gift guide because I stalked her website like a crazy person this year! Bridget is the owner of this vintage and modern Oushak rug shop that will make your jaw drop.
She manages to mix the old with the new in a way you won’t find from a Rugs USA rug or a mall bought rug. It’s as if you went to an estate sale and found a gorgeous vintage rug with character, but at the same time it was perfectly on trend for 2020 styles and came in lots of sizes.
I was looking for a rug for my entry for almost a full year when I stumbled upon Milagro. I can’t wait to show you the rug that’s on its way to me now!
Shop Milagro Collective CHRISSY10 gets you 10% off through December 1st!
Accidental Farm Girl sells stunning, large, substantial wreaths. I put her two corn husk wreaths up on my front door this fall (seen here)! When I shared it she was so nice to immediately send over a discount code for others to use – CHRISSY gets you 15% off her wreaths or anything else in her shop!
Her Christmas wreaths and garlands just dropped and I’m not gonna do it girl, I was just thinking about it, I’m not gonna do it…. I did it! I can’t wait to show you her beautiful (but artificial!) wreaths going on my front door this year!
Shop Accidental Farm Girl and don’t forget the code CHRISSY for 15% off 🙂
This is where to go for high quality pillows! The green Schumacher pillows in our living room currently are from Designer Mod and I have recommended them all over town. The fabric is thick, the pattern placement is top notch, the zipper is well made and will last. This is a nicer pillow than you can find in many stores!
I would give this shop 10 stars if I could. She is passing along along a discount code of 10% off any pillows with code CHRISSY10 until the end of the year.
5. The Tiny Tassel (Minority Owned Shop!)
If you like preppy, colorful and happy – FIRST things first check out the Tiny Tassel! Her bracelets and earrings are for your best friend, your sister, or your mom!
Actually, slip them in your own stocking while you’re at it because you’re going to want to wear these too! I don’t have my own personal code to share, but if you sign up for her newsletter there is a 15% off code.
I am using her preppy gift wrap and colorful ribbons this year- not only does it match my decor but it is cute cute cuuuute! If you are someone who notices a well wrapped gift, take a peek at this fun shop! Her preppy tea towels with a bottle of wine are a great holiday gift.
When I bought my gift wrap and ribbons from her she emailed me a thank you AND sent me a personal hand written note in the mail – separate from my packages. Now when was the last time Amazon did that? 🙂
