Holiday Gift Guide: #ShopSmall #ShopLocal

1. The Salty Cottage Pillows –  Beverly, MA.  They’re cozy, handmade and New Englandy.  Buy them locally at Streetwater & Co. in Marblehead and Beverly Farms, or nationally at West Elm.Screenshot 2015-12-08 09.45.13


2.  Stowaway Sweets Sampler Package  I have lived on the North Shore now for 8 years and have continually heard amazing things only about Stowaway Sweets  of Marblehead.  Last week I finally tested out their sampler pack and let’s just say they tasted ‘Queen Mary and White House approved.’

3.  Powell & Mahoney Handcrafted Cocktail Mixers  I love a clean cocktail and Powell and Mahoney so surely fits the bill.  I discovered them this past fall at the House of Seven Gables annual Taste of the Gables and was moved from ‘pleasantly surprised’ to ‘politely shocked’ after a taste test.  All natural, not too sweet, essential oil laden, and Vermont born.  I’m now a Powell and Mahoney lifer.   Their product can be found locally at Shubie’s, nationally at Target or all up in my cabinets.



4.  Lark Hotels – It’s no secret that I have a crush on boutique hotel chain Lark Hotels.  Lark combines both my love of New England and my love of top quality interior design resulting in a full sensory relaxing stay.  They are expanding to Californina now and that’s OK too because if I weren’t traipsing about New England, I’d be chillin’ in Cali.


5.  HausWitch of Salem Spell Kits  – Because being slightly psychic leaves me ‘a lot aware and slightly stressed’, I now have HausWitch of Salem which leaves me full on grounded.  This place gives me (and apparently a zillion other energy readers) clarity and peace.  Cleanse your home after a prolonged guest stay with their “Ohm for the home” house made product (think sage stick and then some) or add a “Graces” tincture to your tea to calm your nerves.  But know at all times white witches are recharging in here so they can go out there and clear that energy.
