I love each & every one of these companies &’can fully attest to the hard work that each of these owners out in to their products & companies. So read on to get your handmade shopping on!

Melissa, of Walter & George, makes the most beautiful leather clutches & card holders. She inventive & creative & The Laura Clutch is completely gorgeous & perfect for any chick on fashionable the go. 

 One of my favorite shops for the longest time has been Swallow’s Heart Jewelry. Shop owner Meg makes the best necklaces around & I love seeing her development of new pieces. The shop is closed right now, but it should be reopening soon!

Atmosphere Soap is localally made in my hometown, Reno. They’re all organic & cruelty-free. I love the love & care that go into each & ever bar. 


Honey & the Hive makes the cutest prints, tees, & mugs. They’re hand painted & drawn & I love the artistic uniqueness that goes into the design. Plus they’re pretty punny too. 
I am so in love with the shop, Marloe. These hand made passport holders, bags, & wallets are so unique & clearly made with love. The owner is the sweetest & that just makes my day!

Buying from So Worth Loving this holiday season will be a guaranteed gift that keeps on giving. These original tees with a mission of worth are close to my heart & I love the message they spread. They also carry mugs, stickers, beanies, & bags. 
A friend of mine from Reno who is a mommy blogger owns a cute little etsy shop called Steel + Twine. Her original watercolor artwork is beautiful & she’s the kindest soul around. 

This holiday season give someone you love something that comes from the hands of someone who loves what they do. Giving is about people, so let’s start with people. Happy holidays!
