It's gift-giving season and we're here once again with a carefully-curated list of makers and small businesses that could be a perfect fit for the people on your list (or even yourself...? I'll never tell!).
For the scrapbooker and planner
Boho Berry is the expert on all things related to the bullet journal planning concept. Visit her site for dozens of how-to videos and her Etsy shop for hand-lettered stickers and printables to make your BuJo both functional and beautiful.
Lara from The Ink Road has assembled a wide-ranging selection of stickers, paper, stamps, and other paper-crafting supplies to help you with your planning, journaling, and memory-keeping. Use code SHOPSMALL for 50% off and be sure to check out her Kickstarter campaign for her very newest stamp project (I backed it to get the sarcasm stamps just because they made me laugh).
For the decorator and writer
If your holiday tables need a last-minute bit of beauty, get printable place cards and other hand-drawn art from Jenny at Scratchy Pixel. Be sure to take a look at her planner and stationery supplies, too!
Outfit your child's playspace in a way that encourages reading and imaginative play with beautiful handmade accessories from Blue House Joys.
Spell out your surname or a special word or phrase with letter art from JA Photography and Design. Jenn is offering free shipping from Black Friday to Cyber Monday on all letter art prints, and discounted shipping on notecards (no code needed). PLUS, take an additional 10% off all orders with code blackfriday10.
Sons & Heirs Art Co. provides beautiful calligraphy and watercolor art for your home and stationery cabinet, and proceeds help fund international adoption. Use code SHOPSMALL35 for 35% off your order.
For the reader
Going to Madrid and want to read a novel or historical volume set there? Check out Longitude Books for a robust library of books organized by geographic setting and theme. Even if actual globetrotting isn't in your plans, you could easily read your way around the world with their book lists.
For a bit of pampering
If you've seen any of my videos, you've seen me wearing Jamberry nail wraps. I'm a huge fan, and you can get free shipping on purchases of $75 or more on Black Friday. You can join a VIP group on Facebook for lots more details.
Adore handmade soaps? Get unique bars made with quality ingredients (and only the most sparkly pixie dust!) over at Doodles Central.
Melissa from The Lush Collection creates the most luscious and richly scented candles I've ever had in my home. She's running several specials: through the end of November, get one free sugar scrub in "Fairy Godmother" free with orders over $50, and a free snowflake bath bomb in "Twisted Mint" with orders over $25. And on Black Friday, you can skip the shipping charge with code BLACKFRIDAY2016.
Do you need a handmade bow tie made from reclaimed fabrics? Yes, yes you do, and you can find some from The ReHaberdashery right here.
For serious self-care
Lora's Weighted Blankets can be a great strategy for addressing anxiety, depression, chronic pain, poor sleep quality, and more. Use code snowflake2016 for $20 off a purchase of $249 or more. Check out Lora's site and take her assessment to find out of a weighted blanket is a good idea for you.
And of course
You can shop for handcrafted leather notebooks during our holiday sale, when the discounts are the biggest they'll ever be! You'll take 33% off almost everything on the site through Monday, November 28th. Get the discount code here. I'd love to make something special for you!
