When most people think of the holiday season they think of it as a magical, festive, joyous, and happy occasion. People love spending time with family and friends, attending parties, drinking eggnog, kissing under the mistletoe, and getting gifts. But one aspect of the holiday season can be quite stressful: picking the right gift. Maybe you drew a coworkers that you hardly know for the office Secret Santa, or you need a gift for a Yankee Swap, or you’re trying to find your kid’s teacher the perfect item to show your appreciation, or your significant other seems to already have everything and you want to get them something special. Whoever you’re shopping for, finding the right gift can be stressful. That is why we created this mini gift guide and included a few others that can help you with your gift giving this season! These gifts are at all different price points and fit all kinds of interested for both men and women. But don't forget - we have our new UnScented Collection shipping in December and that will make the perfect gift for anyone on your list!
-KerriAnnDesigns: Silver bracelet with personalized messages. I own two of these bracelets with words/phrases that help center me, kind of like mantras. One is "Just Breathe" and the other "Feel the water".
-KSLleatherfactory: Same idea as the silver bracelet, but a leather one for men!
-Sewcialite: Hand-painted rope bowls. This is not your average rope bowl! They are durable, come in multiple sizes, and perfect to keep your counter tops, desk, and dressers clutter free!
-Bert's Pawttery: Perfect for tea and coffee drinkers! This pottery mug is made to look like a cozy sweater!
-Bar Harbor Jam Company: Locally made jams and jellies that come in a variety of sizes and flavors. They also have Blueberry Syrup! You can even create your own gift pack!
-Copley and Pine: Rustic custom made bottle openers. Classy enough for the kitchen and perfect for man caves.
-Watts in Maine: Elegant Maine inspired jewelry - we love the state of Maine neckalce!
-Maine Man Flavahs: The foodie in your life will appreciate the unique combinations of flavors in different hot sauces, relishes, and grilling marinades.
