Now through Christmas my Trifecta Tuesday posts will be mini gift guides to get your juices flowing for friends, family or co-workers! Be sure to check them out every Tuesday for unique gifts that maybe you haven’t thought about. I will also be posting general gift guides throughout November and December that are a little more in depth, so Patterns and Batter can be your one stop shop for all of your Christmas list needs. Happy holidays!
All of these items today can be found on Etsy – which means your gift will be just that much special since not all of the masses will have it; score!
These leather keychains are perfect for any age and tassels are still huge right now. At just under $30 this is the perfect little stocking stuffer or gift for a co-worker. There is a full range of colors to choose from and make sure you check out the adorable initial tag you can add to your order. The simple, sweet tag will personalize your gift and make it that much more special to the person receiving it. The DearMushka store has a plethora of other items to peruse, so if the tassel keychain isn’t your thing than maybe something else is. Please note – for the keychain, please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery, so order soon!
These animal planters are SO cute and very popular this year. Every craft fair I go to has some type of interpretation of them. I think they’re perfect for a co-worker to place on their desk. At just under $20 you can purchase a little plant to put in there and you have an instant gift! Plus, honestly the idea itself shows you put some thought into it. These planters come in a variety of colors and animals. If I were buying for myself, I’d do a trio and put them on a bookshelf or how great would these be interspersed on a dining room table as decoration amongst other items like flowers and candles. Super creative and doesn’t take a lot of time or money. If you’re not into the animal planter, be sure to check out Plant and Color‘s terrariums and air plant stands. They will also be sure to delight!
You can’t go wrong with a sweet, yummy dessert over the holidays, so break out of your comfort zone from sending fudge and fruitcakes and send something a little more thoughtful and in my opinion, interesting. These delicate macarons are made in Lexington Kentucky and are just under $25. Have a holiday party at a friend’s or family home? These would make the perfect hostess gift. Not enough to share with the party, the host will get to devour them, themselves. I’m pretty sure they won’t mind 🙂
Do you know of a small business that you’d like to promote this holiday season? Comment below or send me a note and I’ll try to feature them this year. Every little bit of publicity counts!
