There’s a stretch this time of year when I feel like I’m buying gifts even more frequently than during the holidays. From end-of-year teacher gifts to birthdays to baby showers to weddings to Father’s Day and everything in-between, tis the season of giving, and we have intentionally sought out unique, handcrafted gifts for absolutely everyone on your list.
Every item in our store is hand-picked by us, and writing these lists sometimes feels like choosing a favorite child. Even though we love them all, we’ve tried to whittle a comprehensive list to spark some inspiration.
As the wife of a teacher and a mother to a daughter that has been fortunate enough to have a dozen amazing teachers in her short life, I am quite certain there is not a gift big enough to show the gratitude for a great teacher. But we do our best. “Because I had a teacher” is a sweet book you can personalize with a message. S’well bottles are a stylish way for teachers to carry the essentials, like water…and coffee. With summer right around the corner, why not pair a new luggage tag with a pouch in anticipation of their upcoming travels?
Instead of, or along with the traditional gift of cash, add something personal. Easy, Tiger’s world map, or Rifle Paper Co.’s “The World is Your Oyster” print, will help mark all the places they’ll go, and our new robes by Oh Fox! work for the transition to dorm life or from it. The Wilsam Field Guides are a helpful gift for to help navigate any upcoming road trips.
Fresh off the heels of Mother’s Day, it’s already time to get something for Dad. We are stocked. Bar classics, like whiskey tumblers and bottle openers, are always a favorite. Any of our new assortment of United by Blue lunch bags, dopp kits, back packs, or weekenders are stylish upgrade that fit right into any summer travel plans.
Babies and Kids:
Whenever I’m looking for a baby or kid gift, my favorite answer is a well-illustrated children’s book. They’re such a lovely touch to add to a registry gift, and I love to share my daughter’s favorites with her friends at their birthday parties.
I also love to piggy-back on a theme. Take the nursery or party theme and find a puzzle or toy that corresponds. It’s such a simple formula that is sure to please.
Sometimes navigating off-registry feels tricky, but picks like Ten Thousand Village’s love statues, or gorgeous onyx chess set make the path incredibly smooth. Like baby registries, I love to personalize a wedding registry gift with a book. Lost in Translation or The Illustrated Book of Sayings are such fun books to spark conversation sitting on a newlywed’s coffee table.
We love to help you wow and delight! Visit us in-store or online for that perfect present. And don’t forget we offer online registries with in-person deliveries for our Texas neighbors.
