Hey BB Fans,
My name’s Maura and not only am I Tess’ older sister, but I’m your guest blogger for the week!
Today, we are covering gift giving. The Holiday season is my FAVORITE time of year. There’s nothing I enjoy more than decorating the Christmas tree, picking out my holiday outfits and yes…I’m one of those crazy people who listens to Holiday tunes right after Halloween. Sorry, not sorry!!
What holiday activity do I love most? Gift giving! I love buying the perfect gifts for the ones I love. Probably because I own a Women’s Boutique and I’m addicted to shopping, but that’s neither here nor there. I put a lot of thought into my gifts and I’m here to help you buy something special for someone on your “nice” list. All of these gifts are available at my shop, MinkyMink in Downtown Glens Falls.
For the one with the green thumb - KOBO’S Plantable Box Soy Candle ($30)
These pure soy candles come in plantable, seed-infused packaging that will grow the scent of the candle! It’s a unique gift that won’t break the bank. The box is biodegradable, plantable, FSC-certified and made of 100% post-consumer-waste-recycled packaging printed with vegetable-based inks. Available in Sunflower, Thyme, Mint and Lavender.
For the star gazer - Satya Zodiac Necklace ($89)
Minimalistic yet subtly beautiful, these 18K gold plated necklaces feature genuine stones. They come with a description on the back of the packaging that describes the sign’s personality, making this gift thoughtful and sweet.
For the alcohol connoisseur - Beer Caddies & Wine Bags ($22-$32)
These are perfect for a hostess gift, stocking stuffer, or just to use to get in the holiday spirit! The Mona B up-cycled canvas holiday beer caddies and wine bags will be a favorite this season. The beer caddies hold 6 cans or bottles. The wine bags hold up to two standard bottles.
For the wanderlust soul - Lock & Key Leather Handbags ($215 - $295)
Take one look at these handbags and you can instantly tell that they are genuinely made with love. They are all hand made by a woman in Kingston, NY who sews her bags one stitch at a time. They have a timeless look with heirloom quality. If you really want to go all out this year, a Lock & Key leather bag is an amazing gift!
For the free spirit - Buffalo Bannon Designs Feather Ring ($122)
This handmade sterling silver ring features a turquoise stone and a whole lotta style! Made by my gorgeous Sister of course! Feathers are perceived as gifts from the sky, the sea and the trees. Feathers arrive unexpectedly, but not without purpose. Fitting for a gift for someone you love. This item was a best seller at my shop and I know will make someone jump for joy as they slip it on their finger.
For the girl who's always cold - Look By M Texting Gloves ($18 - $20)
You can’t beat the price of these fantastic gloves. They come in a variety of different colors and are oh so chic. Perfect last minute gift or a stocking stuffer! Everyone loves a new pair of gloves because it’s so darn cold around here!
Gift giving can easily become overwhelming and we understand the struggle! Now that you’ve read our 2018 gift guide, feeling more confident in accomplishing that holiday list?
No matter what your style or price range, MinkyMink has a large selection of women’s clothing, accessories and stocking stuffers to choose from. Now, let’s drink some eggnog, put on our party pants and let the holidays begin!
