18 Makers to Shop With All That Christmas Loot

While it can be incredibly difficult to delete the 156th sale notification email of the day from your inbox, scooping up a gift from an independent store will provide all the warm gift-giving fuzzies you need this holiday season and beyond. On top of that, you’ll have unique gifts that will seriously up your gifting game. We’ve rounded up 18 makers, including a few from the B + C Shop, that are sure to inspire ideas for everyone on your list.

1. OFINA: OFINA’s look is minimalist jewelry done right. Any number of recipients on your list would love a classic yet statement-making piece from this maker, like these Druzy Prong Studs ($58).

2. Dubu Dumo: Get your friend ready for those #GIRLBOSS resolutions with some cute AF office goods. Carry the pineapple trend over from summer with a Pineapple Monthly Planner ($24).

3. YuSquare: The idea of receiving socks for the holidays just became way more awesome. These Fountain Jade Crew Socks ($9) personify the bright colors and fun patterns this shop is known for.

4. MartaRyczko: How cute is this Donut Bit Pin ($8)? The sugary confection will make the perfect addition to your pal’s denim jacket (or anything else, really).

5. Isobell Designs: Bay-area designer Melody Shirazi makes modern, minimal pieces with an art deco twist. Gift the Paso Necklace ($46) to your favorite jewelry lover — it’ll make a unique addition to their collection.

6. Wild and Free Designs: You probably can’t buy your jet-setting BFF a trip to a crazy destination, but this Explore Mug ($20) will definitely speak to their wanderlusting heart.

7. Eythink: It’s impossible to narrow down our favorites from this store — everything is SO GOOD. Go ahead and add some goodies to the cart for yourself — perhaps a Big F Little F Feminist Crop Top ($28)?

8. Scout and Catalogue: These gorgeous, one-of-a-kind goods have a bohemian, beachy vibe your gal pal can rock all year long. The Tonala Media Clutch ($128) was inspired by a community of makers in Guadalajara, Mexico.

10. POCOINU: Here is your one-stop shop for New Year’s Eve accessories. You won’t be digging around in your purse for very long to find this snazzy Rainbow Glitter Wallet ($25). Go ahead and scoop one up for every member of your girl gang.

11. Chivas Skin Care: The mother-daughter team behind this skincare line teamed up with Lionsgate to produce this OITNB Cucumber Mint Soap ($12), inspired by our favorite Netflix prison drama. Grab a whole set ($48) for the OITNB fanatic in your life.

12. Tiny Lizard Gifts: Make custom ornaments for your friends with a DIY Embroidery Kit ($5), or gift the kits to the makers on your nice list. Holiday craft night, anyone?
