Whether you’re just starting your shopping (this might be the happiest time of the year, but it’s also the busiest… don’t worry, we’ve all been there!), still searching for the perfect gift for your best friend who always seems to read your mind and get you just what you wanted, still looking for a gift for your son’s girlfriend who you’ve only met once, or just finding out that your sweet mom who you agreed not to exchange gifts with this year bought you something anyway…we’ve compiled a list of our favorite last-minute gift ideas so you can cross those last few people off your holiday shopping list! Stay tuned… we’ll be posting more last-minute ideas on Monday.
The artists behind Sage and Leo make their belt buckles by combining 18th century European illustrations with their original paper collé artwork. The perfect blend of Western-inspired wear and intricate vintage details! $48.
We love gifts that the recipients will get to enjoy for years to come! Lew ‘n’ Me bags are handmade with deer tanned cowhide in Greeley, CO, and they only get more and more buttery soft as they age. $150.
…And if you’re still looking for one extra something to put the finishing touches on a gift, we suggest the Lew ‘n’ Me coin purse! Everything we love about Lew ‘n’ Me (classic design and beautifully tooled leather, to name a few) in miniature form. And it’s still tough enough to hold its own against vengeful keys and all the other challenges a wallet endures.
I don’t know about you, but some of the best Christmas gifts I’ve ever gotten are the ones that keep me warm and cozy (especially this time of year!)…scarves, soft blankets, slippers. Made from wool and then lined with fleece, Laundromat sweaters are comfortable enough to wear inside, and thick enough to wear outside like a jacket and still stay toasty warm! Laundromat’s hand-knit goods are fair trade (and there are many reasons to love their products).
Artist Candice Kiersow adds a verdigris finish to these necklaces, enhancing her artistic designs and creating a beautiful turquoise color. My favorite is the the sideways heart with the branch design—sweet, simple, and the perfect finishing touch for any casual outfit. $36-42.
