I can always remember coming home and watching Oprah with my mom after school and anxiously awaiting the "Oprah's Favorite Things" show. It marked the Holiday season and highlighted a whole range of things so I thought I would hijack my Wishlist Wednesdays from now until Christmas Eve and make them jDl's Favorite Things. I have already come up with a few topics (favorite foods, home goods, makeup, etc) but if you have suggestions please leave them below. I am also going to host a giveaway of some of my favorite things in December so follow along!
Today I thought I would share some of my favorite small business online shops.
Carrie the owner of Carrie Grace actually attends the same church as me although we have never met, so I am a silent supporter of my church and local/online boutiques. She is such a motivator on Social Media, seriously, you should check out her Instagram whenever you are having a bad day. I stumbled upon her store at the end of last year and was lucky to snag one of the coveted spots of the Necklace Club. Essentially, you pay a little more than $180 (there is a coupon code today for the launch: CELEBRATE) and you receive a necklace at the end of every month. The cost includes the shipping and each month is a different necklace. Talk about a great deal! I mean it comes out to under $16 a necklace+shipping and all of them are worth between $30-50. I just signed up for another year since I seriously get so many compliments on all of the necklaces I have received. This is a great gift for those who love surprises and jewelry.
Here is one of the many necklaces I received:
Gee Gee Gifts
I have been a fan of Gee Gee Gifts back when it was called. It's Gee Gee, Baby but I recently ordered a Monogram Pullover through their deal on Groopdealz and I have been wearing it constantly! It is the Quarter Zip Sweatshirt and guess what, it has POCKETS! Yep, a monogram pullover with pockets! I didn't realize it comes in Men's sizes so be aware of that but I ordered the Medium Black with White Vine Monogram and it is nice and large and comfy. I put it on as soon as I get home from work and even wore it to Big/Little Reveal in this post.
Shelby is so sweet and crafted a beautiful burlap monogram for me! It is the perfect addition to my sewing table and I am in the middle of rearranging things so it can be highlighted more on this small space. She makes beautiful burlap signs as well as gorgeous prints. I think the Marriage Print is perfect for those on your Christmas list that just tied the knot this year, or for an anniversary present!
