Hi friends! I thought about the last time I published a “gift guide” and realized that it’s honestly because the internet is flooded with them and they give me major anxiety.
BUT, this isn’t your normal gift guide. It’s a variety of items curated with love for local businesses in my area! There are so many great small businesses in this Jackson- Madison-Ridgeland, Mississippi vicintiy that it was tough to narrow them down, so I kept it simple and straight to the point. I will try to change it up for the next holiday and showcase some more local businesses that I love!
Valentine’s Day Graphic Tee, $35
I mean, leopard, pink and local?
Musee Bath Balms, $6 each
These AMAZING little bath balms smell heavenly and make each bath an experience! The company is founded right here in Mississippi!
My favorite day spa located in Renaissance at Colony Park! Get a massage or a facial and you will feel like a million bucks! You will NOT be disappointed.
One of my favorite local artists! I have two pieces of Leah’s and they are so serene and beautiful. I love how she puts her heart and soul into each of her pieces. Follow her journey on Instagram!
A Day Date to The Manship, Jackson
My favorite brunch spot! Or pizza lunch! Or cocktail hour……basically The Manship is one of my all-time favorite Jackson spots. Plan a day-date or any kind of date and you won’t be sorry!
Stoney Clover Create-a-bag! by Monkees of Ridgeland
These are the CUTEST! And they come in a variety of sizes which you can personalize for any of your gals!
Chic’d Out Design Earrings, Material Girls
This one is a WIN-WIN, because you support a local business AND a local artist! Ya’ll know Chic’d Out Designs is one of my favorite statement earring designer. Everything she makes is amazing and these heart earrings are nothing short of fabulous!
Volcano Capri Blue Candle, Apple Annie’s Gift Shop
These are handmade in Mississippi and they smell so good! These make wonderful gifts any time of year!
Valentine’s Day themed Tea Cakes, Campbell’s Bakery
What says Valentine’s Day like a heart-shaped tea cake? And they are so tasty!!!!
Floral Arrangment by Lavish Fleur
These FLOWERS, ya’ll. They just are the best. That’s all.
Words are like Magic, book by local author Emily Moore
This encouraging book, written by Emily Moore and illustrated by local artist, Kristen Ley is a beauty for any coffee table, bookshelf, and girlfriend. Sometimes, we don’t know what to say to our loved ones in difficult times and this book helps us with that!
As I said, these are just a few ideas from local businesses that would make excellent gifts for the upcoming Love Day! But, don’t forget to support local where you are, too!
