Best Shop Small Gift Guide

Hello loves. I hope you find yourself in the midst of good holiday cheer. Today I feature a Shop Small Gift guide- a few outstanding items from small retailers.

“Shop Small” is a mantra that you hear from me often . Shopping small and locally, when possible, is a way to vote with our dollars and support the little guys, and gals. I will try to do a few of these in the next two weeks.

Warning, in advance- the last item in my shop small gift guide is a quirky one… and this particular one is for its quirky appeal, but it is too expensive and out there to recommend.

Below, salad servers Here

  1. Thank you for including me here! ((((( Elle ))))) It is much appreciated : )

    That last one is akin to a toilet made out of gold. Good grief. For those that have far too much money! You can buy two cars or a toilet. Your choice. Heck you can probably buy a house in some parts of the world for the same cash.

    I love the salad servers. So unique.


    1. I wanted to, your shop is so well curated.
      Yes, that toilet, so over the top!! Yes, most definitely a house in some parts! And a nice one!

  2. That toilet! Ha! I always shop local, my downtown, local businesses and second-hand for things like a faux-fur jacket. You can find some amazing stuff, as you well know, dear Elle. Thank you for promoting this kind of “give back” at this time of year.

    1. Yes, over the top, do you think ??? LOL. Yes, this is how I like to shop, the small businesses really need our support.
      Happy holidays. I know you also shop with heart!
      xoxo, Elle

  3. Oh my goodness I laughed out loud at that toilet, wow! haha! I really like that velvet skirt too, thank you for sharing these 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely week, and you got some bargains in the sales. I ended up grabbing a little something on Cyber Monday after resisting temptation all weekend, haha!
