Christmas is 15 days away! If you're a last minute shopper (like me) check out a few of my favorite finds to help you finish off your list. 

Big Magic - This book is perfect for any creative person or entrepreneur in your life. I love Elizabeth Gilbert's writing and after reading a rave review from my friend Alesya Opelt, designer at Alesya Bags, I knew I had to have it.

Wallet (in Vermillion) - Speaking of Alesya... she unveiled her newest collection of Alesya Bags and accessories back in October and everything is gorgeous! I'm in love with this wallet because the color is so striking and it has a removable card wallet inside. https://www.alesyabags.com/

Peacock Silkscreen - If you follow me on social media, you know I LOVE the Bitter Southerner. Their General Store features so many awesome Southern made items including this peacock print silkcreen paying tribute to the South's first lady of lit, Ms. Flannery O'Conner. Shop the entire General Store here: http://bittersoutherner.com/general-store/

Scarf - You can never have too many scarves... I plan on wrapping up with this one from Everlane on my way home to Georgia. Shop Everlane here: https://www.everlane.com/

Mini Lantern - When exploring Portland this fall, I came across the coolest store, CORD. The shop had every camping/outdoorsy accessory you could imagine: lanterns, knives, radios, packs, and more. Ryan and I go hiking and camping quite a bit so this little light is perfect for us. Lightweight with a long-lasting led battery and the little loop at the top is magnetic so can hang from the top of your tent! No more awkwardly holding my flashlight under my neck to read. If you have an outdoor enthusiast on your list check out CORD's curated online shop cordpdx.com.

Craft Beer - Always on my list. Give a friend a local bottle or two or recommend a bottle share night with a few friends. Check out your neighborhood bottle shop or brewery to see what seasonals they have for the beer aficionado in your life. P.S. Upland Brewing Co. has some of it's coveted sour ales available in holiday gift packs right now...

Paddle Board (The Splurge) - I'm in love with these gorgeous boards handcrafted by Three Brothers in Daytona Beach, Florida. I got hooked on SUP living in Maui and I so need this beauty to cruise around Lake Monroe don't you think? See the full lineup of boards here: http://threebrothersboards.com/

Darling Mag - Mag subscriptions make  love the idea of giving a magazine subscription. This mag features gorgeous photography and none of the women have been retouched by photoshop (so awesome).  Learn more about Darling Magazine here: http://darlingmagazine.org/

Shaker Village Artisan Soap - I've just returned from a delightful weekend at Shaker Village in Harrodsburg, Kentucky and their adorable gift shop is still on my mind. From furniture to preserves, this shop is full of unique gifts; many of which are handcrafted in Kentucky. I'm hooked on these soaps made locally for Shaker Village using goat's milk, olive, coconut, and castor oil. Shop Shaker Village online here: http://shop.shakervillageky.org/

Cozy Sweater - Can't have a holiday gift guide without a comfy sweater. I'm currently crushing on this easy cable v-neck pullover from Free People. This sweater + hot chocolate fireside = perfection. One of my favorite places to shop Free People is through Darlings Fine Things on the House Account App. I haven't visited their shop in real life (yet) but the House Account app makes it really easy to shop local/shop small from anywhere!

Happy Holidays y'all!
