The holidays start showing up in store decorations months in advance these days, yet it seems we STILL manage to get ourselves overwhelmed trying to figure out the perfect gift every year! And despite “Christmas creep” taking over Thanksgiving and even Halloween, it still normally blindsides us.
My first suggestion: Avoid the mall and mass produced stuff from China. Support handmade this holiday season and you will also be supporting a real person; an artist a local maker. Here are some gift suggestions to help you pick awesome things for your friends, family and loved ones!
Do you have someone in your life that loves the finer things? You can rarely go wrong with jewelry! And of course, not just any jewelry but something unique and made from gorgeous, natural gemstones.

Gifts for Mom
Personal is always best when shopping for gifts for Mom! Mothers love to have family trees or pendants with birthstones; things that represent the bonds of family. And if she is a new mom or soon to be new mom, nothing will make her prouder than letting everyone know about the new addition to the family!
