Here are our top gift picks for 2019!
Giftin’ ain’t easy. Between basting the Thanksgiving turkey, addressing the cards, and running around like Rudolph on a rampage, even the savviest Santa can find herself getting grinchy this time of year. It shouldn’t be hard to holiday and now, it doesn’t have to be! We’ve scoured the internet, loved on our local faves, consulted with the gals at The Getalong and cooked up a gift guide that’ll put a little jingle into even the most jaded of belles. Whether you’re shopping for babies, big kids, or crazy aunt Bonnie who’s never met a food she couldn’t suspend in jello, we’ve got ya covered!
In case your mama pal’s extensive refrigerator collection didn’t drop enough of a hint, handmade and heartfelt is the way to go. You can’t go wrong with Kamppinen hand-dyed (and washable!) pillow shams, a set of perfect Lewis pouches, our Signature necklace, or one of Jamie and the Jones cozy hand-woven sweaters.
Not every father is a foodie but almost all kid wranglers develop a taste for morning coffee. Especially when morning begins on baby’s time. We think Sylvan Clayworks beautiful, textured mugs make even the sleepiest mornings feel special. If your main man’s home office could use a little dose of handsome, one of Patina and Co.’s gorgeous imported desks will more than do the trick.
We know grandma goes gaga for a macaroni necklaces, but it’s always nice to give the best lady ever a little extra luxe. Kamppinen’s hand towels make baking cookies with the grandkids even more fun and Vibe Organics citrus-y Spark spray will give her the perfect pick me up after the littles have gone home to you. If you’re going big, rehab or reimagine some of her old jewelry with help from Glen and Effie.
Bringing wine is never a bad idea, but when it comes to a hostess gift, we like to think outside the bottle. Party planning is stressful, a little piece of peace from Brown Fox Collective and Cash Color will bring the zen to her den. Or a mini wallet from Lilyan James can help her keep track of her cards while she carols.
SO, your little angel probably hasn’t gotten around to compiling his Christmas list just yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get him something he’ll coo over. For the tiniest of tots, we adore a super swanky seaweed swaddle from Lewis or one of our premium paci clips. For bigger babes, turn to Wash With Water’s CBD suds or something delicious from our feeding line.
Santa, they might look cute but kids might be toughest customers. The combination of candy canes for breakfast and brutal honesty can make sitting around the tree pretty tense at times. The good news is that there are loads of great gifts out there that you and your mini can feel good about. Say Mele Kalikimaka to Junior with an adorable Kala ukulele or bring the fun along with a Sticky Lemon backpack. For the budding artiste, we like the Type Set Co Magnetic Letters (ummm, totally fun for parents too).
Don’t you feel more festive already? We’ve got all the holly jolly feels at JM and we can’t wait to celebrate holiday 2019 with you and your families. Go get’em gifters!
