Guys...Christmas is 10 days away and today is officially the last day to order a gift online for Most stores (to receive it by Christmas). This is a short and sweet post reviewing some of my favourite shops that offer gifts that not only have meaning, but give back! If you are scratching your head trying to think about a few last minute gifts with a big impact- read on :)
I recently collaborated with this company because I was blown away by the beautiful vision the creators had. SOLS is a Utah based company working with Mexico’s most talented Artisans to bring you their beautiful products. Born in Mexico, but raised in the U.S. Liz, Cici and Abby were inspired while visiting small peublitos where their parents grew up. They were determined to share the beauty of their craft and culture with the world. Their mission is to give these Artisans both men and women the work and honorable pay they deserve in order to care for their families. A message from Liz, Cici and Abby:
"Every pair of SOLS has been handmade by an artisan in a small pueblito in Mexico. All leather, carefully handcrafted, and designed by real people with real names. Our hope is to share the beauty of the Huarache making art, which has been passed down through generations. Through this project, we hope to provide job opportunities for these people"

2. Designs By A
I have had the pleasure of knowing, growing and working with the owner of this shop- Alanna. Her passion and creativity is so inspiring, and she is simply an incredible person and friend. When I am trying to think of a sentimental gift for anyone- whether it be a member of my family or a friend, the first shop that comes to mind is Designs By A. Alanna creates the most beautiful custom pieces for every occasion! For Christmas I think of her Custom Mugs, Wood Signs, Laser Cut Signs or specialty items such as unique hangers. I love getting people something unique and meaningful for their home..and Alanna makes absolutely stunning options!

3. Kantha Bae
Collaborating with Krista and her beautiful company was a pleasure this year. Her creations are so magical and unique that I think they would make the perfect gift for a new mother, or anyone who loves textiles!! Check out Krista's inspiring words about the creation of Kantha Bae:
"I believe in mamas and sisterhood and community and that we can't do life alone and weren't meant to. I want my shop to be a platform for that. I hope that as you wear kantha, you feel a part of something bigger and that you are strong and brave!"
The stunning colours first attracted me to Kantha Bae, and now I just can't stop lovin on this company!! From wraps to carriers to pareos, head bands..quilts and more, just take a look at this site and feel all the beauty this mama creates. Check out the website Here

5. Caco and Kai
Caco and Kai are two bizness ladies that opened a store in order to feed their global, vintage and hand-made textiles habit. As native Africans, Caco and Kai strive to use ethically sourced vintage textiles from all over the globe. Putting emphasis on promoting fair trade and sustaining local craftsmanship. Buying a Caco and Kai product is more than just a purchase for your home as 5% of every sale goes to support Morning Star Children’s Home orphanage and school in Kenya, Africa. Meaning you’re helping support the great work done to help the very communities our textiles originate from. They believe that in this era of mass production, there is a new desire to get back to handcrafted goods that tell a story, building the character of a home and illustrating individuality through uniqueness. Every Caco and Kai piece is one of a kind. It is such a beautiful way to show someone you care! From pillows to Blankets and Baskets, there are so many beautiful items that make for meaningful gifts this Christmas. Check out their website by clicking here. Psst they also have a Sweet Sale going on to!!
6. Cuddle and Kind
This adorable company was created by a family with an incredible mission: they created cuddle+kind because they wanted to make beautiful hand-knit dolls that help feed children. So for every cuddle+kind doll sold, they give 10 meals to children in need. The sweet dolls are SO adorable and come in two sizes depending on your preference. When it comes to gifting a little in your life whether it be your own or not...hands down, Cuddle and Kind is my pick! I love that every doll gives back, and I also love the quality of each of the little friends they create! Piper has Stella the Polar Bear and she is Literally obsessed with it. They have some Special Offers going on right now, but remember today is the last day to ship before it's to late! Click Here to Shop Cuddle and Kind
