bjwedding-28 The holiday season is one of our favorite times of the year not only for the decorations but also because we get a chance to give gifts to our friends and family. Melanie, Founder of Oak & Honey Events and Katelyn, Associate Event Planner, will be sharing some of our favorite local and sustainable products over the next couple weeks to guide you along the way this holiday season.

We hope our posts will not only help you find the perfect gift that the special ones in your life will enjoy but also help you support local businesses and reduce your impact on the environment. Making someone’s day and doing good – What could be better?

Today on the blog, Melanie shares with you her favorite gift picks for the special lady in your life.

Ellie Jane Bags Waxed Canvas Totes

I was lucky enough to receive one of Sarah’s fabulous purses for a birthday gift from the hubby last year. I am loving everything about this purse! It is made from waxed canvas which makes it super durable, waxed canvas wears over time similar to leather. There are all different sizes for the special lady in your life.

Revival Body Care - Coffee and Rose Hip Scrub

Revival Body Care offers products that are free of toxins, chemicals and preservatives that are bound to leave her skin soft and smooth. I highly suggest the Coffee and Rose Hip made with fair trade coffee grounds, brown sugar, sea salt, among other good-for-you ingredients. The smell of the coffee wakes you up in the morning and the rose hip is relaxing.

Kukuli Market Manta Slippers 

Purchase some comfy slippers from Kukuli Market. These slippers are made in small production in Lima, Peru. Kukuli Market curates Peruvian goods for the Modern Bohemian. Two-thirds of their team is based in Peru and all their products are crafted by local artisans. Not only will you be purchasing comfy, unique slippers you'll be giving back and help ensure artisans receive fair pay for their work.

Wanderlust Jewelers - Customized Jewelry

Add some sparkle to her life and surprise her with something one-of-a-kind from Wanderlust Jewelers. Every single one of their pieces is hand-crafted from start to finish and bound to leave her speechless.

Lush & Lovely Floristry - Gift Certificate for floral workshop!

What girl doesn't love flowers? Lush & Lovely is a Cleveland-based retail flower shop in the historic neighborhood of Ohio City. They offer a number of fun and informative workshops at their location. Purchase a gift certificate for a floral workshop and a night out with one of her girlfriends.
