I love buying gifts. Some people, I realize, don’t. It’s a chore, it’s a mystery, it’s a pain in your butt. But here’s a good rule of thumb: If you find something so fantastic that you’re tempted to keep it for yourself, it’s probably a good gift.
That’s why I think the online shops below are so wonderful. I’d just as easily buy something for myself from every single one of them. Of course, that’s not what Christmas shopping is about.
One of my favorite bags is a Queen Bee creation. Check our her shop, as well as the lovelies made by Nikki McClure and Snap.
My favorites are the Swiss rings and Text bracelets. So. Damn. Cute.
Adorable — and affordable — totebags and necklaces.
A one-stop shop for all things cool.
Check out the mom’s travel organizer and button necklaces.
No time to shop? No-time bracelets and t-shirts are a no-brainer.
Rosy Little Things
These handbags, skirts and photo albums are deliciously sweet. Perfect for those girly-girls you know.
Stay warm with these wildly creative hats and scarves. They even have beer cozies.
Andrea makes magical jewelry and scarves. They are guaranteed to give you superpowers.
Wildly fun felted wool scarves and flowers. If I lived in a colder climate, I’d buy a set for every day of the week.
*Especially for those of you who missed this shopping guide when I sent it out last week.
