Misty's Holiday Gift Guide - Volume 1

With the holidays approaching and the online holiday shopping season kicking into full swing, I thought it was the perfect time to share some of my favorite handmade shops and items in the hopes that no matter who you're shopping for, you can find something great for them! 

I'll be breaking the gift guide up into several volumes or series.  From jewelry to candles to baby items to gifts for Fido, you'll find it here.  I'm only featuring items and shops that I have personally bought from or have on my own list to try. I'd suggest anything but the best to you...

So without further ado, I give you Volume 1 of Misty's Holiday Gift Guide!


Auntie Di's is your one-stop shop for all of your smell good needs.  Candles and tarts galore, what chick on your list wouldn't want some of these?  Here are a few of my favorite things...

Pink Sugar Type Soy Wax Candle 16 oz Jar - $14.00

Vanilla Bean Noel Snowflake Soy Blend Tart Melts - $5.50
Christmas Hearth Soy Wax Candle 8 oz - $8.00

You're probably wondering why on earth a soapmaker is featuring another soapmaker, aren't you?  The answer is simple.  I love soap and I love buying soap from other shops.  Soap makes me happy.  You know how some people buy shoes?  Yep, I buy soap.  And when it comes to cold process soaps, Amanda and Joe from Long Winter Farm Soap Co know their shi--I mean, stuff.  I almost always have a bar of LWF in my shower.

Campfire Vegan Cold Process Soap - $6.00
Pink Peppermint Goat Milk Cold Process Soap - $6.00
Pineapple Cilantro Vegan Cold Process Soap - $6.00


 Celia over at Gliz Glitter has to be one of the sweetest people and her jewelry really speaks for itself.  I love that every piece is beautiful while retaining a simplistic elegance.  

Clockwork - Silver Pendulum Oxidized Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings - $28.00
Pink With A Vengeance - Ruby Swarovski Crystal Briolette Oxidized Sterling Silver Necklace - $32.00

Solstice - Citrine Gemstone Coin Oxidized Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Bracelet - $76.00



Drea at Faeried Treasures is so much fun, I adore her.  Her storybook and fairy tale inspired jewelry is as whimsical as it is lovely.

A Drop In The Ocean - Petite Teardrop Vintage Glass Jewel Earrings - $15.00
A Flower Is Born To Blush - Bridal Freshwater Pearl and Vintage Glass Flower Necklace - $95.00

Sarah and I have been online buddies for a few years now and I love her to pieces.  And speaking of pieces, I'm the proud owner of several of hers!  Her sea glass and wire-wrapped jewelry is one of a kind and I get complimented every single time I wear one of her necklaces!

Atlantis Found Necklace no. 136 - $40.00
Passage Necklace no. 238 Skeleton Key - $45.00
A Nest Adorned Necklace - $35.00
