From Thanksgiving on, we enter into what we call the most wonderful time of the year. And as it is so; it is the time for gifting (and receiving)—and wonderful, like they say, that comes with some pressure. For me, gifting is a sign of hearing and seeing someone; it’s a test of paying attention. As humans, we need to pay attention; as a blogger, I try to emphasize that.
It’s in that spirit that wanted to share a series of gift guides. These guides will pay attention to the WOMEN makers and the people and organizations that they support and love. I want to know what drives them to create, and in turn, support their creations.
As this blog, my own creative outlet, has become a full-time job over the last two-years, I wanted to make a point of bringing other creators and their creations to my readers. Over the next three weeks, you’ll get to meet six women makers and the gifts they are considering for their loved ones this year. And as a bonus, some of them will offer discounts or giveaways, along with sharing organizations they are supporting in this season of giving.
–What do the holidays mean to you?
The holidays are always about spending meaningful time with family. Whether it’s just my boyfriend and I relaxing on our own, or traveling to visit our families, the holidays mean taking time out of our busy lives to spend quality time with our loved ones.
My boyfriend deserves a matchstick dog by Eleonor Bostrom, but custom to match our own puppy.
My brother is a designer and I think would really like this Correll Correll sweatshirt.
My mother loves simple everyday jewelry, I love these beautiful Another Feather pieces.
I’m going to gift myself these shearling mules for the seasons holiday parties, but The Palatines.
The Optimo straw hat – it’s packable. Something even the non-hat wearers can get behind for traveling and trips to the beach.
-Name one organization you would like readers, friends, and family to donate to this holiday season?
