2022 Holiday Gift Guide

2022 Holiday Gift Guide

November is here, which means it is officially the start of the holiday season!  It can be an overwhelming time of year for many, especially when it comes to gift giving.  Host and hostess gifts, teacher gifts, co-worker gifts, friends and family... the list can be never ending! 

This year I am again making the commitment to shop small for the majority of my holiday presents, and I would encourage you to do the same!  Lucky for you, I've teamed up with a number of amazing small businesses (and primarily women-owned businesses!) to compile a comprehensive gift guide for the 2022 holiday season!  Enjoy, and happy shopping!

Madly Wish Tooth Fairy Pillow

Madly Wish

Madly Wish is an ode to the fading tradition of tactile memories, of having something to hold, smell, & feel when you want to remember something that's been there from the beginning, woven not only with threads of fabric, but memory. One of those cherished memories for both parents and children is a visit from the Tooth Fairy. You will always remember the excitement you felt when your child lost their first tooth... and their last. This pillow is a keepsake, for boys and girls, that you'll treasure long after the Tooth Fairy has made her last visit.
