We wanted to kick off our gift guides this year by highlighting a few small businesses that carry some of our favorite things that would make great gifts! Generally small businesses need extra time to process orders and ship, especially if it’s handmade, so we wanted to get this one out asap! We have a lot of other great small businesses we love linked here that we compiled earlier this year and it’s worth checking out!
Here are 18 gift ideas we’d love to gift and receive this year!
1. Heirloom Print Shop – Landscape Art $6 This shop is full of so many beautiful prints that would fit into so many different homes. If you have someone on your list that is into home decor–this would be such a well received gift!
12. Gold Hill Candle Co – Oakmoss & Amber Soy Candle $48 The candle I keep buying over and over. I love Gold Hill–they have some amazing holiday scents that are all 30% off this week! Run!
15. Rostok Toys – Wooden Animals $24 My girls are animal obsessed and small toy obsessed, so the fact that all of these small animals fit in that cute little house for storage makes me so excited to gift this to Polly!
16. A Family Print Shop – Silhouette Locket $115 I’ve always thought a locket was such a thoughtful and almost romantic gift to give. Jewelry that captures what’s in your heart, to wear next to your heart. I love this one so much.

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
