Small Shop Gifts for Mamas, Babies and Moms-to-be

Small Shop Gifts for Mamas, Babies and Moms-to-be

This year, many people are looking to support Small Shops, local stores or Mom-owned businesses with their gift purchases instead of corporate chain stores. There are so many good reasons to help support small businesses, this year small businesses need you more than ever. PLUS the added bonus that you can find more unique gifts when you shop small!

As a small business owner myself, I love "shopping small" during the holiday season and always. A gift guide like this is one more way I can help support my business owner friends.

None of the gifts included in this guide are mass-produced or 'knock-off' items from China. These are small businesses that I know and love, with gifts for Mom, Mom-to-be and baby. Enjoy!

Gifts for Mom

The Columbia Fragrance Co has a Candle of the Month Club. Trying a new scent every month sounds like a great gift!

A hydrosol from Be Kind Botanicals might be just what Mom needs to compliment her beauty and uplift her spirits on on tough days.

For writing Moms, this gorgeous Leather Journal from Jenni Bick Custom Journals would be well-loved and practical.

An Essential Ink Pen and Oil Gift Set would be the perfect gift for the Mom who has everything! From Essential Ink.

From RioMar Designs, a versatile zippered pouch is perfect for the Mom on the go or just a Mom who carries all of the things with her. This year, that may be extra masks, wipes and sanitizer. In the future, it would be great to carry small toiletries for traveling.

Gifts for Mom-to-be

From Modern Merrigold Jewelry Co, the perfect encouraging gift for any Mom-to-be. Who wouldn't love this sweet baby feet necklace?

Stylish and useful, a Labor and Delivery gown from Dressed to Deliver is an affordable (and washable!) luxury for a new Mom. Why use a boring uncomfortable hospital gown when you can have your own beautiful birthing gown?!

Bloomiss has whipped up a delicious-smelling Mochalicious Body Butter that would be great not only on dry hands and feet, but on your baby bump as well!

Clothes are always a hit, especially when Mama may not have much that fits her! Epiphany Boutique has a maternity and non-maternity lines of stylish clothing.
