20 Fabulous small businesses for thoughtful gifting

Stacie Flinner Christmas Gift Guide -7.jpg


As a small business owner myself, I’m so incredibly grateful for every client, reader, and brand that I’ve had the opportunity to connect with this year, and love paying it forward by highlighting other small businesses that are creating something special and new! Below you’ve find a list of favorites that make wonderful gifts and help support someone’s dream at the same time! 

  • This cashmere mockneck sweater and cashmere wrap scarf by Alice Walk are my favorite pairing for travel days, keeping me warm on the flight and looking chic upon arrival. (These photos are from my recent trip to France.) All of her cashmere is really high quality and a relaxed, cozy fit perfect for fool proof gifting. 
  • I’ve been wearing pieces from Rhode Island-based 5th generation jeweler Haverhill Collection for years. I recently got the Greenwich 4 stone earrings and Newport Bracelet with David’s birthstone (white topaz) but both can be customized with any birthstones you like, making Haverhill pieces such a thoughtful gift. (And you can get 15% off your order with “Stacie15”!) 
  • Pick up a pair of gorgeous pillows from Stuck on Hue for the decor enthusiast in your life. 
  • A beautiful made-to-order cape from Marta Scarampi for the woman who has it all.
  • These cheeky cocktail napkins from Chefanie would make the perfect hostess gift!
  • The Devon Dress from Molly Moorkamp will flatter women of every age! (I have 4 pieces from Molly Moorkamp and love every one!) 
  • I love Paravel’s collection of canvas and leather travel bags and think the grand tour duffel or weekender would look great monogrammed under the tree. 
  • I just discovered Pissenlit, a luxury outerwear company offering gorgeous coats at affordable prices.  This coat in maple just arrived and it would make a show-stopping gift under the tree. 
  • Cute pajamas are always a hit around the holidays and I love these super-soft cotton sets from Lake Pajamas.
  • Renwick makes chic tennis and golf apparel at affordable prices, and I love the idea of gifting a top and bottom together for the active woman in your life. (Perhaps with a cute golf or tennis ornament if that’s their thing!) 
  • Stubbs & Wootton Slippers are always a luxurious gift idea for men or women and you can use “FriendsofStacie” for 20% off your order! 
  • I love Dudley Stephens’ stylish and eco-conscious fleece wear, especially the Park Slope Turtleneck.
  • The francophile in your life needs Jamie Beck’s new book An American in Provence.
  • Heidi Wynne makes the best classic fisherman sweater – an essential in every wardrobe (man or woman!) 
  • Dave Money‘s handsome handmade tote bags feature vintage Pendleton blankets and other textiles and are a wonderful gift for the guy in your life! (Better yet, have the recipient pick their own blanket for Dave to transform!) 
  • Pamela Munson is the queen of straw accessories and would make a fabulous gift for the snowbird in your family. This navy pearl clutch works year-round. 
  • Charlotte Brody – Gorgeous pieces made right in the heart of NYC, Charlotte Brody’s collection is ideal for your most special occasions. (I mean – this top!)
  • Sarah Flint – This small but mighty brand is the ultimate gifting destination for the women in your life. Timeless styles luxuriously crafted by the same hands that produce footwear for all the top luxury brands, Sarah Flints like this bootie or her silk scarves will never disappoint when discovered under the tree. 
  • Stripe addicts will love a cashmere sweater from UK-based Bay by Merryn! I own and love the Lotte Polo
  • Planning a trip to Paris with your loved one? Give them one of Paris Perfected’s Guides to restaurants, bakeries, or things to do – or all three! The founder, Meghan, visits Paris every couple months to ensure her recommendations are always up to date.

    Love this idea, Stacie, but really disappointed in your decision to share a link to a product (a coat) that is trimmed with REAL fox fur. And mentioning that you purchased (or were gifted) one. 😔 This is disheartening.
