A Handmade Christmas Gift Guide

You’ve heard me shouting from the rooftops, right?  About how important it is (more than ever!) to shop small, stay loyal to local, and support handmade?  I’m sure you’ve heard!

So, for my first year ever, I’ve pulled together a simple and straight-forward gift guide from a handful of local makers, entrepreneurs, and boss babes (from our Handmade on Main shop)…






I’m the owner and maker, Amy Bierstedt

At first I wanted to list our wonderful gift boxes as my favorite Christmas gift idea.  But the visitors center just highlighted those in their blog post.  And then, I thought my favorite tub tea and tea ball should make this list.  But I’m ALWAYS recommending those.  So, I’ve decided to go with something different, some facial items.

Handmade by me, our clay face mask is made of bentonite clay, lavender essential oil, frankincense essential oil, and tea tree essential oil.  Wonderful for detoxing, smoothing, and hydrating.  Great for complexions.  And to pair, our bamboo face mask set is the perfect way to mix and apply the mask fresh every time.

Clay face mask is $28.  Brush set is $23.

Owner, Tia Molinar’s favorite Christmas gift:

I think the Christmas Splendor candle is the perfect holiday gift.  The scent is described like this: Celebrate the magic of the season with this splendid mix of fresh cut pine and fir wrapped around warmed cinnamon sticks, ground clove, and a base of holiday fruits and sweet oak moss.
Available in 22 oz candle, 8 oz candle and wax melt.

(Prices are $30, $20, and $5)
