Christmas Gifts: Our Employee Favorites!

It’s finally here! The time of year when we thoughtfully try and find that perfect gift!  What is going to make their eyes light up when they open that beautifully wrapped gift? 

For some, the hunt for the perfect gift is a thrill and gets us in the spirit of giving and anticipation for the holiday celebrations.  For others, it’s plain stressful. So we thought we would get our team together to pick our their favorite Christmas gift ideas in the store and inspire you with some of our ideas! I guarantee you will find some selections to get that list in motion. 

 Hilborn Pottery

One of Karin’s favorite "go to"  gifts is Hilborn Pottery. This gift is great for the “all things handmade” person in your life! This unique family-owned brand is located in Canada and prides itself creating artistic designs.. And the bonus? They are all food safe, microwave, dishwasher and oven safe!

Lizzy James Bracelets

The Lizzy James brand was created in 2011 when brand owner, Lizzy James, was going through  breast cancer treatment. Wanting to channel her energy into something positive, she began using her creative talents to create unique artisan jewelry. Her versatile collection was created to celebrate the strength and resiliency in all of us. Tag team with Lisa’s choice to gift the lady in your life the perfect piece of jewelry!


Mud Pie Baby

Does anyone else have new babies in their life this Christmas? One of my best friends had a baby girl last week, and I can’t wait to buy her ALL the cute things! Janice and Kelsey’s favorite brand for baby items is Mud Pie. Mud Pie has a versatile collection of items for all styles of nurseries, wardrobes and parenting style. Come on, you know you want to buy that cute baby just ONE more present…

Simon Pearce Trees

Simon Pearce creates many beautiful glass pieces, but our favorite is the glass trees. Bruce, one of our owners, says that the trees remind him of where he grew up in the Northwoods, as well as the many holidays he and his family have spent at their cabin over the years.

If you are spending Christmas at your own cabin this year, have a look at our collection of board games! Nothing is better than spending a family Christmas with the devices turned off, creating fun memories.

Mova Globes

Another one of Bruce’s favorites are Mova Globes. These aren’t any ordinary globes! These globes use a liquid barrier in between the plastic shell and the globe itself to work with the Earth’s gravitational pull. The globes slowly and consistently rotate inside the shell, giving a whole new element to a “desk globe.” Gift one to someone who is decorating their new at-home office!

Made out of all recycled materials, Mariposa allows you to buy a beautiful piece of handmade serving ware while also giving the planet a good return!

Wine Cozies

The only thing better than wine itself is wine that has a cute outfit on…right? That’s why Francine’s favorite is these adorable Christmas-themed wine cozies! Add one of these to a nice bottle of wine for a hostess gift, or even a stocking stuffer (for those family members over 21, of course) And, a bonus is that are handmade by a craft-savvy local young woman.
