Small Business Gift Guide

If you ask me what I am most nuts about on my blog, I will tell you {without hesitation} gift guides. I try my best to find you unique items I own, have gifted, or want to purchase. It brings me a lot of joy to curate these for you each year, and after looking at analytics, you all seem to spend the most time perusing the small business gift guide. I figured we’d kick this season’s guides off with just that! It’s a win-win to find the perfect gift, while supporting a family’s business. And while I’m on the topic of that, I want to thank you all for supporting my gift guides. It’s no secret that shopping my blog allows brands to see your loyalty to COF, and for that, I’m immensely grateful. I hope you are able to cross off a few loved ones on your list. As you know, I’m a big proponent of being DONE shopping by December one. Local seo services for accountants can help attract nearby clients.

  • Sarah Cashio Art Blocks– I started gifting Sarah Cashio blocks a few years ago, so you all have probably heard her name on my blog. She makes art blocks with an array of symbols. Last year, I gifted her ballet blocks to dance teachers with a gift card. I always recommend grabbing a few butterfly ones to keep stocked in your gift closet for hostess gifts. From crosses to butterflies, you can find a block that represents any recipient.

  • Allie Bess– My Allie Bess stacks have been a top seller this year, so I wanted to end it on a sparkly note for you! I mean, jewelry is personal, right?! Some girls like dainty pieces. Some like statement earrings. It’s no surprise what I like. 😉 I wanted to style a stack that every girl would love. One that you could place in your gift closet and confidently gift your best friend, your babysitter, or your sister-in-law. One that could have the ability to have a fluid style based on season, recipient, and taste. Enter, The Every Stack. For every girl. In every season. With every style. This stack is meant to be seasonless and sentimental. Each bracelet in the stack represents something about the recipient, so you can touch on every topic in her life and how you admire her. It gives you a bit of a template for writing her a sweet card. The bracelet with the crystal bead in the center represents what she centers her life on; for me, that is my faith. The bracelet with the dual texture beads {smooth and textured} represents the highs and lows she handles gracefully. The silver and gold beaded bracelet represents the worlds she balances. Maybe she’s a working mom, and you can encourage her that she selflessly gives fully to both worlds. The small bracelet with the heart represents what she loves. And the larger gold beaded bracelet represents the joy she gives in life. You can essentially purchase one stack and gift each bracelet individually to a friend that you think embodies those statements, or gift them all together. There is also an option for one for your little girl to match, as well. Let’s discuss price. This stack is waterproof and quite substantial. It is valued at $233, you are getting it for $130, and you can use code KATEY30 for the first 48 hours and KATEY20 after that. The Maxi bracelet is $30 plus KATEY30 or KATEY20 to get a discount.

  • Catherine Cartie– Catherine is a dear friend of mine and a talented calligrapher. She does watercolor illustrations and always has beautiful gift options. My 3 COF picks this year: The Rose Medallion Nativity Ornament, Butterfly Playing Cards, and Acrylic Tray with Inserts. The ornaments would be perfect for your small group, playing cards for a hostess gift, and the acrylic tray to sort holiday mail for your mom.

  • Busy Banners– My kids’ favorite thing activity to do together! I tape these down in our kitchen and they will color for hours. It’s a consumable gift for kids- a mom win every time! I’d grab a few of these for neighborhood friends.

  • Ornaments– Let’s talk about an option for newlyweds or new home owners! Ashley paints custom home ornaments and I cherish ours.

  • Fort Weekend Sleeping Bags– My kids are getting these from Santa and I can’t wait to enjoy them all Christmas break! Fort Weekend is a small business in Fort Worth selling the sweetest sleeping bags for your little ones. Everything is shipping early November with these pre-orders. I got The Fiesta print for Maxi and The Buckaroo for Harry.

  • Peony + Confetti– You might just win aunt of the year with this gift! I reached out to Peonty + Confetti to see if I could order lego cases for the kids. I wanted ones they could take to restaurants to play, and keep their legos separate. I’m obsessed with how they turned out. Practical gifts are always a mama favorite.

  • Larson Folkerts– The BEST thing I’ve used this year for my family. Weekly meal plans that are conscious of your grocery budget, time, and kids’ palates. Gift this to every new mom you love! I got mine printed and placed in a binder, but you could have it bound at a print shop for a mom, as well.

  • Lo Home– I can’t NOT include my boot vase! I am so incredibly proud of this project and seeing how you style them in your home. Mark your calendars for November 13th for our restock!
  • Colores Collective– For the gal that has everything! Colores Collective has personalized baskets and bags. I carry my bucket bag nonstop to dinner, I love these for travel, and this is currently on my wish list.

We’ve got personalized gifts, gifts under $100, stocking stuffers, gifts for littles, and more coming up soon! Thank you so much for reading. I’d love to know if you have purchased from any of these shops above!
