The holidays are my favorite time of year – I love the decorations, the food, spending time with family, and of course, finding the perfect gift for my loved ones. This year my guide is all about local and small businesses that have great items for everyone on your list.
For the Foodie
Sonoma Love Box, Sonoma County Farm Trails Edition ($84.95) – A perfectly curated box of locally made goodies including everything from Sebastopol Blackberry Honey to handmade jam to roasted chipotle and raspberry sauce. All items are from local Sonoma County purveyors and farmers. The box can either be ordered for delivery or available for pick up at Bella Rosa Coffee and Made Local Marketplace in Santa Rosa, or Dragonfly Floral in Healdsburg.
For the Fashionista
Topaz & Pearl Jewelry Garnet Choker ($29) – I adore Topaz & Pearl – Julia has an incredible eye for jewelry. I’m currently loving her Garnet Choker, which is simple, yet elegant, and perfect to pair with the rich colors of winter. Garnet is a wonderful stone for a gift as it represents love and connection – the perfect emotions for the holiday season, You can purchase directly from her website topazandpearl.com or in person at Boho Bungalow or Ritual Salon.
Ooh La Luxe Brooklyn Hoodie Dress ($54) – This is my new favorite sweater! I picked it up at the Santa Rosa 4th Street Location (where I’ve always had AMAZING service) and the “dress” version of the Brooklyn sweater is perfect to wear over leggings. I want this in every color – I wish I could wear it every day!
For the Cozy Queen
Blankets & home decor from Boho Bungalow – I LOVE the Boho Bungalow! With two locations (Occidental & Sebastopol), there are so many hidden treasures in this eceltic shop. My favorite item I picked up is my mustard color knit throw ($39) but there are so many options for amazing gifts from cozy blankets to beautiul home decor items to jewelry to crystals. Check out their Instagram for more info here!
Pacha Honeysuckle Rose Whipped Soap + Scrub ($11.99) – This is literally my shower must-have. This stuff smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling soft every single time. Plus, all purchases support transparent, ethical sourcing, clean water initiative, hygiene education, and small business opportunities. I picked mine up at the local Whole Foods!
For the Wine Lover
Bottle Barn Sonoma Red Sampler ($118.94) – For the loved one that is a wine collector, impress them with a curated selection of local wines by Bottle Barn. I personally love the Sonoma Reds Sampler, but other gift packs are available such as the Holiday Zinfandel Collection and the Holiday Sparkling Collection. Shipping is free for 6+ bottles, and you can use my code SONOMAGIRL10 for 10% off your order!
Harvest Card ($99) – The Harvest Card membership is a great way for locals to get the “insider” treatment – Membership gives you special discounts and complimentary tastings to Sonoma County partner wineries, restaurants, hotels, and more.
I hope you enjoyed my gift guide – I love that all of these gifts support a small business. Let me know your favorite place to shop local & small – and cheers to a love-filled holiday season!
