First of all, where do you search for the best in handmade? I start on Etsy of course. It’s my favorite online shopping center for all things creative. Grab a cup of tea, hot cocoa, caramel apple cider, or coffee and let’s start crossing names off your holiday gift list!

I’m in love with Lauren’s entire line up of body butters, sugar scrubs, and soaps. Gift any of these self-care items and you cannot go wrong.
