Melissa Lew Jewelry
The lotus blossom is a wish for prosperity and wealth and is one of the greatest traditional flowers in Asia. It also symbolizes strength as it has to rise out of the mud to bloom. This necklace is part of Melissa Lew’s new Paradise Found collection and is a wonderful way to keep the memories of your favorite places or flowers close to your heart. Each necklace comes with a card and kraft jewelry box for easy gifting. Matching stackable bracelets are also available at http://shop.melissalew.com/
Gracious Leigh Gifts
Melissa, the owner of Gracious Leigh Gifts, makes beautiful personalized gifts. I’m a fan of her thoughtful kitchen items. We have a personalized tea towel she made and it’s beautiful. Soft and has held up for over a year now! A practical gift like this personalized spoon, or a cutting board customized with a favorite recipe in a family member’s handwriting would make a lovely gift. You can shop Gracious Leigh on her website, here.

Food gifts are always fabulous. Keep your kitchen clean and outsource with Celtic-inspired *shipped* gifts from Amy at Henderson’s Hearth. Based in Louisiana, Henderson’s Hearth makes delicious jams, baking mixes, and spiced nuts. It’s hard to pick just one thing to send, so I’d recommend her “best sellers” sampler as a great gift!
If you have a baker in your life, they probably need fancy sprinkles! One of my favorite sprinkle shops is Sweetapolita. The mixes are a lot of fun, shipping is quick, and I’m supporting a fellow baker and woman-owned business. Click here to shop and use my referral code for 10% off your order!
Caffe Amouri Coffee Roasters
A good cup of coffee is a great way to make the day brighter! We are very lucky to have some amazing coffee roasters near us in Virginia, and one of my absolute favorites SHIPS! You can shop their beans for shipping on their Square site, here. The Wolf Trap Blend and the Blue Ridge Blend are two we have purchased and enjoyed recently, but all of them are delicious.
