Small Business Gift Guide


Over the past few years I’ve been introduced to or have had the joy of working with a few small businesses that I absolutely love. As we start Cyber Week and with Small Business Saturday quickly approaching, I wanted to share a few small businesses to consider shopping this holiday season. From fun accessories to art I have had on my walls for years, there’s quite a variety in here. Did I mention they’re all owned by amazing women?!

If you’re looking for something unique to gift this holiday season, look no further than the ideas below. Some items you may recognize from previous gift guides, which is only a further testament to my love for these brands and products. Sharing my thoughts on each and any information on sales below!

Club and Court Tennis Dress: If you saw any of my OOTDs this summer, you likely know that tennis/exercise dresses were on repeat in my wardrobe. They are so comfortable and a great way to wear athleisure while still staying true to my personal style. I love this pretty style!

Crosby by Mollie Burch: The gorgeous color combinations that the Crosby team incorporates into their feminine and chic styles always catch my eye. I have a headband from this brand that I wear often and frequently get questions about. The styles are perfect for wearing for many different occasions and so timeless while incorporating cute trends.

Evelyn Henson: I’ve had pieces from Evelyn Henson in my spaces since I started college, and it’s been so fun to slowly grow my collection over the past few years. From whimsical prints that add bright colors to my wall to everyday items like stickers and coffee mugs, there are many ways to gift this joyful art to someone on your list this holiday season. Use code MERRYANDBRIGHT20 for 20% off!

PVE Designs: You may be familiar with Patricia’s work from seeing it at J.McLaughlin. She luckily sells some of her prints on Etsy! Her prints of popular New York City scenes during the holidays are festive and do such an amazing job of capturing the joy of the city during this season.

Molly Moran: When I wasn’t wearing tennis dresses over the summer, I was likely in a Run Around set from Molly Moran. These comfy 2-piece sets come in the cutest colors and are perfect for busy days in the city. The Gameday Sweatshirt in crimson is my most recent closet addition from her shop, which makes the perfect Saturday uniform for cheering on the Tide. Sweaters and pants are 40% off this week! 

Pants Store: I’ve been shopping at the Pants Store since I was a freshman in college and still wear many of the pieces I purchased years ago. Whether you’re looking for the perfect outfit for an occasion (bought my Harry Styles outfit from here), gameday outfits or just styles for everyday, look no further. I also love being able to try out trends at their great prices. Their Black Friday deal will be 20% off in-store and sitewide, and check out all their additional deals in this post!

Match South: I have two Match South prints in my apartment and look forward to growing my collection even more over the next few years. The site has a plethora of prints of matchboxes from notable locations across the country. It is such a thoughtful gift for someone who loves traveling or perhaps just moved as a way to remember their favorite places. They also have prints for popular teams and restaurants which are fun for the biggest fans!

Honey+Hank: The fun designs of Honey+Hank always catch my eye because they are made with the coolest shapes: the silhouette of states! I love getting a closer look to see which state (or states!) each pretty print is made with, and think this would be such a unique gift. They are currently having a 30% off sale sitewide!

navyBLEU: I was first introduced to navyBLEU years ago, and it’s been so cool to watch the business thrive over the past few years! What started as an online boutique with just navy items (I mean, what could be better) has now grown and expanded, and it’s safe to say I’m a fan of all their classic styles with modern twists. Everything on the site is currently 30% off with code BLACKFRIDAY.

Sprinkled with Pink: You’ve likely seen Sprinkled with Pink before and you may not even have known — their collection is huge! I continue to grow my own collection of items from this shop because each piece I have is personalized and functional, all while being really affordable. Sign up for their emails and enjoy their Black Friday sale that’s already begun with deals up to 60% off!

The Monogram Corner: Speaking of personalized items, my monogram quilted tote has been one of my most used items in 2022. It’s the perfect size for running errands and is easily packable to bring on trips. I have the ecru color, but the navy and olive green styles are perfect year-round.

Lisi Lerch: It’s safe to say when I wear pieces from Lisi Lerch, I will likely receive compliments on them. These elegant styles for everyday are always my go-to for statement earrings, and I’m such a fan of the latest collection with Abby from Belle of the Ball! Enjoy 40% off sitewide this week.

Dudley Stephens: Whenever I share I’m wearing a Dudley Stephens on IG, I always get questions and love for the style. I am already drawn to fleece and warm layers during the winter, and I like how easy Dudleys are to dress up and down while staying cozy. Everything on the site is currently 40% off with code DSDELIGHT!

Olive Branch Embroidery: This Alabama wreath sash was such a hit when I shared it on IG and TikTok earlier this fall, and I see why. I am already dreading when football season ends and I’ll have to put it away! Luckily this darling shop has countless other designs for teams, holidays and seasons, making it a perfect gift for someone who has it all.

Palm Beach Sandals: A timeless style inspired by Jackie Kennedy makes a perfect gift for someone who’d prefer to be barefoot all summer. I am already counting down to next summer when I can wear my own pair again! There are countless styles and color combinations to choose from, but luckily they are $30 off and buy three get one free, making it a little easier to choose. 😉

Joy Creative Shop: Whether it’s to-do lists at work or stationery I use to send snail mail, it’s safe to say I use a product from Joy Creative Shop at least once a day in one way or another. I’m especially loving their Christmas collection and know I will be wrapping up all my gifts with their darling gift wrap options and tags! Use code MERRYHAPPY15 for 15% off sitewide or MERRYHAPPY20 for 20% off orders over $250.

Canvas Style: Another brand I love for the cutest accessories. It seems like they come out with new designs and collections all the time, so there’s quite a variety of fun styles to choose from for whoever you’re shopping for. BLACKFRIDAY-40 gets you 40% off sitewide!

Barrington Gifts: It’s no secret how much I love my bag from Barrington Gifts, and it’s one of my past Christmas gifts that I certainly get ample use out of. It’s another brand that you can totally customize the products to really give a unique and personal gift. They’re currently having their best sale of the year! Spend less than $200 and get 15% off with code JINGLE15. Spend over $200 and get 20% off with code JINGLE20, and spend over $400 and get 25% off with code JINGLE25.

MyAgenda: I’ve used a MyAgenda for the past 2 years and will continue to sing its praises for its functional design and compact size. Whether you’re shopping for a college student or recent grad (or maybe are one and need inspo on what to ask for), this is a great gift especially going into the new year. Currently 20% off.

Weezie Towels: A Weeziee bath sheet and robe were perhaps two of my favorite purchases in 2022. They are made with the softest fabrics which is just what you want when getting in and out of the shower, and have a handy hook so you don’t have to worry about them falling on the ground between uses. Get 15% off purchases of $150 with HOLIDAY15 or 20% off purchases of $250 with code HOLIDAY20.

Happy shopping!
