Mom Culture Loves- A Holiday Gift Guide #smallshop edition


Ok, mamas, I say every year that I'm going to put together a gift guide and every, single year I get too caught up in the hustle to ever get it put together but not this year....I finally did it!  

Truth be told, I'm not a huge consumer, so when I do purchase, I really love to buy from fellow makers and shakers, small shop hustlers like myself.  Being in the small shop community has taught me so much about the drive, determination and efforts makers put into their brands. It can be so hard to compete with the big box brands, especially during the Holidays, so I love shopping for quality items from these hardworking Mamas & Papas.  


 Bannor Toys:

This shop is hands down, my go-to for all baby gifts. This company is run by my beautiful friend, Stacey Bannor and her hubby.  They established their amazing handmade toy company back in 2011 from their basement and have now grown into their very own building. These heirloom-quality handmade wood toys are customizable and encourage learning in the simplest form without gadgets and batteries!

 Raine & Skye:

This is another one of my go-to makers and shakers.  Raine & Skye bags are made of real genuine leather, hand-cut, hand-sewn and made with love from Rosemary's table to your littles' hands. My daughter has been wearing her bags for 6 years now and the ones she's outgrown are safely tucked away for her future daughter one day.  These are true heirloom-quality you cannot duplicate. They make the perfect treasure and accessory for your little explorers and fashionistas!

 Tiny Whales:

This amazing mom & pop shop has been my go-to for the past six years to keep my kids in the most stylish and free-spirited wear around. This brand is designed by Shaun and Brittany Wagoner--parents to two beautiful little girls and makers of always RAD never BORING kids apparel. They design every piece together from the textiles to the hand drawings, from start to finish. These rad parents pour their heart and soul into each and every piece they produce. Did I mention that they do it in all the USA?? So rad!

 Shop Wrenn:

I call the mama behind this brand one of my OG small shop friends, Alissa and I have been hustling along with each other since I started almost six years ago.  She is my go-to jewelry maker for not only custom pieces but original designs that make the perfect unique gift for the special ladies in your life from sisters, mothers, and grandmothers she's got you covered by her amazing craft and metalworking.
