Y’all, I am so pumped for today’s post. I have been working for months on gathering a very tightly curated small shop feature list [and then a few bonus favorites at the bottom]. More than ever, I hope you can see the importance of shopping locally and supporting small businesses in America as we regather ourselves after two years of survival and barely hanging on in so many ways. Supporting small and locally helps small business owners supporting their families believe they have a chance to survive another year and it helps your local economy. Your purchases bring hope and make a business owner dance when they hear your purchase come through on their computer. I hope this list helps you navigate Christmas shopping AND it helps you find a small shop you can support and give a follow to on Instagram!
You guys, I cannot even write enough words to say how much I love this brand. It exceeded all my expectations. From the branding to the product itself – just so magical and fun. My son has had out his play mat to color on for a week and I personally have played with the matching cards even when the kids aren’t around. For the holiday breaks, I love the idea of having fun activities and games for Knox to play while school is out that continue to help him learn and play!

You guys, this boutique. I have shared them on my Instagram stories before, but basically if you were to curate a shop of clothing that is feminine and just a dash of extra and you’d find in my closet, this is the spot. If you like my wardrobe, you could buy anything from here and know I, too, would buy it hehe. They are local to Forth Worth and have incredible customer service AND are owned by a boss babe momma! (The pink floral dress in top image is also from this boutique!) Follow them on IG, too!
This hat is the best hat I have ever owned, y’all. It’s sturdy and unlike anything I have seen/felt before. I always get compliments on it when I wear it, too. This small shop is woman-owned and is for sure going to be making a mark on the hat industry. As a sucker for branding and aesthetics, too, I appreciated their entire unboxing and branding experience as well.
But honestly, how festive and fun are these? Don’t miss a giveaway happening December 1st for a special winner to help with the holiday season! I found myself some cute cozies and the boys now have some cutie matching sweatshirts for all of our upcoming Christmas gatherings. I bought up a size for myself but TTS for the boys!
The cutest minimalist countdown! This countdown is SO much more than Christmas – New Years, Thanksgiving, Baby, Vacation, Birthday and so much more. It’s all interchangeable and easy to change out. Knoxy has loved counting down to Christmas with this while also learning his numbers!
If I could curate a dream shop of cute goodies for the home, parties, and gift giving … this is it. Look nowhere else, because this cutie shop has everything you need for the holidays and party throwing. I am so obsessed with my colorful selections from their Christmas Collection. But, the most special is my Dancing Ballerina Angels for my sweet Blakely.

Sleep My Darling– I shared recently about this on my Instagram and STILL can’t say enough about it. A custom lullaby for a gift to a new mommy couldn’t be sweeter. You can order a teddy bear that sings the lullaby as well as a beautiful print of your lullaby’s lyrics. This gift is the TOP of my list for anybody with babies/young kids on your list.
