A Shop Small Holiday Mommy Gift Guide + Giveaway!! {Giveaway Closed}

The ultimate Shop Small Holiday Mommy Gift Guide and Giveaway!

I’m SO excited about this post! I’m sharing my Shop Small Holiday Mommy Gift Guide that has 5 totally awesome gifts on it that every mom would love. And the best part?! These fabulous ladies have donated goodies for a giveaway, so one of you will be receiving a holiday gift package a little early!

Before I share the list, I want to stress how important it is to shop small. Yes, there are people behind EVERY business, big and small, and the Shopping Gods know I love Target just as much as everyone… But when you shop small, you support someone whose heart and soul are poured into their craft day in and day out. You know that their items are made or selected with love, because there’s nothing more important to them than helping their customers find exactly what they need and want. Consider shopping small this holiday season–because some of the best and most unique goodies can’t be found in a department store!!

Enough chatter from me–here’s my

Shop Small Holiday Mommy Gift List!

1. This super cute Silly Santa Hat, made by Caitlin at All That It Seams

Oh my gosh, how cute is this hat!? Caitlin hand makes these Silly Santa hats at her shop “All That It Seams”, and her work is absolutely incredible! The coolest thing about All That It Seams? They donate 10% of their profits to no-kill animal shelters. This is such an amazing way to give back, and it makes you feel truly great about purchasing from them!

2. This comfy and glittery Mama Bear shirt made by Alison at Bows and Antlers

Alison has an amazing Etsy shop called Bows and Antlers with so many customizable items! Of course, my favorite was this Mama Bear shirt. Who doesn’t love all the Mama Bear goodies!? And I absolutely love how this gold is so prominent and glittery. This shirt is SO comfortable, and you can snag it (or any of Alison’s goodies!) with a special coupon code for $2 off $20 at checkout! Use the promo code LEGGINGS2!

3. This super adorable Mom’s List notepad by Nicole at NC Creative

I absolutely love notepads, and I was smitten with this Mom’s List notepad! Nicole’s shop, NC Creative, makes TONS of custom stationary, from invitations and thank you cards, to beautiful notepads! On Nicole’s website, she also offers copyrighting, graphic design and consulting work as well!

4. The sparkliest pen ever, by Pen Gems

What goes better with a Mom notepad than the perfect pen?! These pens have been a favorite of mine for a WHILE. I’m pretty much like a squirrel…anything shiny or sparkly has me all googley-eyed! So of course, I love these pens. The tops are filled with little gems, and there’s a big sparkly crystal at the top. I know it sounds crazy, but sometimes just having a really beautiful, sparkly pen makes you feel put together and pretty! See ya Bic, Pen Gems are my new jam!

5. This incredible customized bracelet by Katrin at Frosted Willow

This bracelet is to die for. Any mom would absolutely love to have a handmade and customized piece with their child’s information on it! Katrin did this one for me with my daughter’s initial and birthdate. It is absolutely gorgeous! You can find tons of other unique, customizable and handmade designs in Katrin’s shop or on her website. I know you’ll find something for every special mom there!

    I shop small every chance I get! Especially when I travel, I always visit the local book store (not the big box chains) and buy several books or bookish things. In my own town (which sadly does not have even one book store), I eat and get take-out from the restaurants. This is great to spotlight small business!

    There’s a small shop a mile from my home that I love! They aren’t online yet, but I love going in to see all the new items they have. I bought all my Christmas decorations this year from them. They wheel and deal as well!
