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)…
FROM SCRATCH FARM
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.
