Shop Small Gift Exchange
Back in December, I hosted our Swell Team members for a holiday party to celebrate an amazing year.
As my gift to them, I curated some special gifts from other small businesses and entrepreneurs and tried to only buy gifts that were purchased through such shops or in local stores I love. Enjoy some of the gifts I came across and keep these in mind for your Valentine's gifting!!! Unless of course, our Forever Blankets fit the bill for your gift buying needs.
Some of my mompreneur friends have pretty AWESOME beach ready gear. Betsy at SwimZip carries my favorite kids bathing suit line as well as SPF protective cover ups for women. I love mine in the same pattern as the one featured above. The kids suits are a must have for summer, especially the long sleeve rash guards.
I have also loved gifting Kami's Simple Sarongs. They are adjustable for all sizes and great for teens to more mature ladies. I gave my mom one a few Christmases ago. I love how practical they are because the material is made like a towel but keeps you covered up when you get out of the water.
And the Bogg Bags made by Kim's company are perfect for everyday but made for the beach and pool lover. You can wash out the sand and gunk easily. She has different sizes, tons of colors, and they are a great price point. The recipient of these this year gave her little girl the small one so she could match mommy's larger bag.
My friends at Beer Greetings make clever giftable 6 pack greeting card cartons. I filled one with food themed goodies including a gift card to our local Buttermilk Sky pie shop here in Sandy Springs, GA. My family is from South Georgia so I also included a batch of Blackberry Patch syrup made in Thomasville, GA.
I love photography and a local friend of mine takes beautiful photos. One of our pregnant team members, Meghan, received the Family Photo Shoot session from the extremely talented Atlanta photographer, Sofia Di Trapani.
And then there were the local shops that I love like Acorns in Highlands, NC where we have a cabin (I bought several gifts there!) and a few spots here in Atlanta.
Located in Brookhaven, GA
Shops around Atlanta
I love their storefront and their facials (whenever I get them!)
And the best registry shop in Atlanta is located in my town. I registered for my wedding at Fragile Gifts!
In terms of Skin Care, two lovely lady friends of mine sell stuff I love.
For a face balm, I have discovered Beautycounter's Balm thanks to the beautiful Averi who can help you make your skin look as awesome as hers.
And an all time favorite adoptive mompreneur of mine is Samantha from Green and Lovely Products. They are divine and affordable. My mom is really into her face lotions and I love her caffeine infused Wake Me Up face cream. It smells like fresh coffee and goes on like a whipped cream. And it is organic.
