Can you believe it’s almost mid-November! How the heck did that happen? I’m not totally complaining since November is my favorite month of the year and not only because it’s my birthday month- but because it Thanksgiving, cooler weather, and the start of all things holiday (including gift guides!) Today I’m sharing some of my favorite products that you may want to include on your list for Santa this year (or keep in mind for the friends and family that made it on to your nice list.) Ya’ll know I love a good handmade ETSY item as much as a big brand favorite, so enjoy my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide for HER below!
I’m starting this year’s gift guide off with one of my favorite items of the year- a custom family doormat from InfinityCustomMats! I’ve had this beauty out for over a month now and so far 3 neighbors and our UPS delivery man have inquired where it came from so you know that’s a good sign if you’re looking for the perfect gift! I’ve had cute doormats before but they always wear out after a year or so and I was on a quest to find a durable and pretty custom doormat! Thankfully I found the solution with personalized, designer Infinity Custom Entry Mats. Infinity Mats are beautiful one-of-a-kind high definition personalized entry mats with unique performance features. The mat itself, the letters, numbers and designs are precision cut inlaid, NOT printed so they don’t fade like printed or painted mats- who knew!? Infinity Mats are anti-bacterial, won’t mold, mildew, shed or shred and come with non-slip backing so they stay in place. They make great real estate client gifts, wedding gifts, housewarming gifts, Christmas gifts and of course they’re great for your front door! Another perk, as our UPS driver pointed out- he knows he’s delivering the right package to the right place! Check out all the different fonts, designs, sizes, and shapes HERE!
4 words: Monogramed PJ’s from BelleLinee. How cute are these? I love that they can be totally personalized based on the style, size, colors, and of course initials! Don’t mind me, just wearing my cute pajamas in a public coffee shop because they are THAT cute! Of course I love that this is a mom owned shop and moms should support moms, but let’s talk about her products! She offers everything from custom embroidered bags, blankets, bathrobes, and pajamas in her ETSY store you gotta check them out and shop all the adorable styles here

Now when it comes to the perfect black clutch- I’ve found what I consider the answer from Meganleone!

I’m so happy I stumbled upon AshramBrand! Not only are all the products dedicated to bringing you gifts, apparel, and accessories full of words of wisdom, fun & inspirational messages to uplift & elevate your life- they are SO soft and printed using high quality eco-friendly water-based inks. Each pair of leggings is designed personally by Maz featuring art by Sharam. Designed with movement in mind, the double fold waistband is more comfortable than the classic elastic waistband and won’t let you down … even in downward dog! Stretch the fabric to the limit and it will bounce back and conform to your body even after multiple wearings thanks to the signature poly-spandex blend.

Since I pretty much live Monday-Friday in leggings and one can never have enough of this wardrobe staple, I MUST share LoopyJayneCo with you! I dont know how it’s possible but their leggings almost feel like you’re not wearing pants…in the best way!! Seriously, the silky smooth material is like nothing I’ve ever worn and the leggings aren’t see-through, even the cute white striped version below. I was blown away that I can actually wear white leggings out in public and look so fab! They’re moisture wicking, high-waisted, and they don’t show sweat- let’s be honest, all things that busy gals require! They’re tight, but not too tight. They stay stretchy all day, even after a workout and did I mention the cute patterns? You MUST check out her Christmas prints here! I am totally obsessed and you will be too!
I LOVE anything with my little guy’s name/initial/picture on it so when I saw a girlfriend wearing this custom made disc necklace I had to inquire. Turns out, she purchased it from one of my favorite ETSY shops all along, GracefullyMadeStudio! The shop offers jewelry in various shapes, sizes, and designs but I fell in love with the double circle pendant that features JZ’s name on one disc, and another disc stamped with a single heart. How perfect would these be for moms, grandparents, aunts, or godparents?! She even makes a family free bracelet that is to die for. Another one of my favorite GracefullyMadeStudio items is the silver or gold dog bone with your fur baby’s name on it- we all know I’m a sucker for anything pup related! I hope Santa is listening!

This next jewelry company I’m going to share with you believes you can look fashionable with affordable, original designs while still helping others with your purchase. How great is that? AntonioandFrankie give 25% of each sale to help a cat or dog in need and they’ve helped hundreds through direct donation, charitable fundraisers and auction donations. Today they take a multi-discipline design approach to focus on creating pieces you can dress up or down and take you from day to night. One of my favorite things about them is they LOVE to make custom pieces to match existing items you may already own and the process is pretty darn fun. You fill out a questionnaire, send a pic of your outfit you need jewelry for, and they send you a few options until you find the perfect fit. Most of their jewelry are statement pieces and come as a necklace and earrings set. Check out all the options here
