1. Loose Leaves Paper Goods

I was first introduced to Laura’s work through my sister-in-law who had the talented illustrator design her wedding invitations. Then I saw her work at the local shop, Shop 205 and I became a fan regularly buying her pieces for gifts and holidays including this Christmas. Her illustrations are whimsical, bright, energetic and fun. Cards, prints and now pins (the CUTEST pins) you’re going to find something that you will love. Check out her latest and in-progress designs on instagram here.

2. Papel and Pine

 

Gifts with initials on it are always perfect for the holidays so here is something handmade, floral and absolutely gorgeous. Papel and Pine does modern hand embroidery and turns your initial into a work of art. Hang this in your entryway along with a picture of your house by Genevieve Stacey (see number 5!). Follow her on instagram here.

3. The Edit Vintage

Buying vintage online can be a little intimidating but fear not if you’re purchasing from The Edit Vintage. She models most of her items and translates the sizes so you know what you’re getting. Yen has incredible taste and educates us on the quality and uniqueness of buying vintage. Check out her instagram here for her latest items which sell out FAST so go quickly!

4. Rosalie Wynne Intimates 

If you’re looking for lingerie that is beautiful and most importantly fits properly consider one made by Rosalie Wynne. She has designed a nursing bralette, A NURSING BRALETTE! I loved bralettes before having babies and I went to the typical ugly bra while nursing but I wish I had found this. GORGEOUS! Reviews for her lingerie include, “They are so comfortable and beautiful and sexy. They say you can’t have everything, but I think I have it in Rosalie’s bralettes!” and, “I love my bralette from Rosalie Wynne. It’s so comfy and lovely! I feel super beautiful wearing it.” Isn’t that how we all want to feel wearing lingerie? Follow her on instagram here.

5. Genevieve Stacey Art

This is honestly one of my favourite gift ideas. I met Genevieve through friends and she is the loveliest person. It took me a couple visits to find out that she’s the artist of this amazing house portrait that lives in our mutual friends house. THIS IS THE GREATEST GIFT IDEA EVER. What’s better than a gorgeous portrait of your, your parent’s or grandparent’s house? Such a sentimental and personal gift. Contact her through facebook here and follow her on instagram.

6. Avril Loreti

If you’re looking for a burst of colour in your home look no further than Avril Loreti’s designs. Her custom patterns are gorgeous and take on an almost retro feel. When you see her cushions if feels like you’re having a party in the 70s. Follow her on instagram here.

I hope you enjoyed this gift guide! Stay tuned this week for more.
