It’s so easy to just order everything we need for Christmas from big box stores with a few easy clicks, however with each passing year, I try my best to continue to support small businesses too. Here are some of favorites:
Busy Bee Cozies
If you haven’t used a cup cozy other than the paper one that comes on your Starbucks cup, this is your sign to order one. Or 3. They truly make a difference and are so cute! My coffee station in our kitchen has a drawer dedicated to all of the cozies we own from this shop. My girls love to use them too on their cups, so they are great for both kids and adults alike!

Craft + Boogie
This company has been near and dear to my heart now for several years. I began ordering these monthly craft boxes when Laney was 2 and Morgan was a baby to give us some fun activities to do during one on one time. These kits became even more special to our family during the pandemic because they were one of the only constants that remained during the shut down. These boxes still showed up the beginning of each month and crafting gave us a tiny bit of normalcy that had been robbed from us and the world. They also have other fun themed boxes like wedding day boxes for flower girls and ring bearers, big sister, big brother, camping, airplane busy kit, road trip busy kit and more!
We have watched Meghan, founder and mom of 3, grow from operating out of her garage to having a full blown office space now! Craft + Boogie also runs a non profit called Craft + Boogie Collective that gives back in big ways! Find them on Instagram @craftandboogie.

Allen Burn Designs
I have been shopping Patty’s beautiful creations, clothing, decor and vintage finds for several years now and her things always blow me away! Her business and name were inspired by her crafty mother-in-law Barbara Allen and southern born mom Florence Burn.
Her space is currently decked out for the holidays with some really incredible pieces to add to your home and/or to gift to friends and family this Christmas season! My favorites are the felt ornaments, the bottle brush trees and hand lettered hymns. If you’re local, stop by my favorite store, Ivy House (@ivyhouseantiques) and be sure to follow Patty on Instagram @allenburn_designs. It’s a one stop shop for family, friends and teacher gifts alike!
Busy Mama Party Co.
This a new company I began supporting this year. Alyssa has the prettiest party supplies ever! I have ordered some fun supplies for themed days I’ve done with my girls, I ordered for Morgan’s birthday party, Halloween and am anxiously awaiting my Christmas order to come in! She also has some fun mini dolls, lunch box notes, tooth fairy cards, festive postcards and even things to do with your Elf on the Shelf! I highly recommend checking her page out on Instagram @busymamapartyco.

Studio 221 Interiors
This local shop with locations in Chapin and West Columbia, SC is run by the sweetest owner, Keri. She has a servant’s heart with a love for Jesus that exudes from her store and a passion for interior design. The stores are so cozy and full of so many beautiful treasures! If you’re local to the Columbia, SC area I highly recommend stopping in for some Christmas shopping, but if you’re not definitely give her a follow on Instagram @studio221interiors.
Sawyer Rose & Co.
Fellow girl mom owned small shop! She makes adorable bows, scrunchies and headbands! Her scrunchies are some of the best I have ever worn. Find her on Instagram @sawyerroseandco.
Haisley Page Co.
This shop also has a super sweet owner! She makes beautiful headbands and scrunchies including handkerchief scrunchies. She finds the coolest fabrics and does a ton of Disney which I love! I have ordered several headbands and a bunch of scrunchies for my girls in the last year! Place your order on Instagram @haisleypageco.
Morgan’s shop is full of fun bows, hair clips, earrings and keychains. And the best part is that everything is $5! I have gotten several pairs of earrings from her (the acrylics are my favorite!) as well as some fun keychains I have been hanging on to to put in my girls’ stockings. Check our Morgan’s shop on Instagram @mogis.bowtique.
Darling Dream Co.
This business is a true family affair and they have the cutest Disney designs! I have been dying to order their 1971 sweatshirt. (Hint Hint, Husband) They have t-shirts, sweatshirts, kids apparel, blankets, coffee mugs and artwork! Follow along on Instagram and check out their shop @darlingdreamco.
This is an adorable small business run by two sisters. They make the cutest holiday and special occasion banners and cake toppers. They also have some fun back to school items that can be used for first day of school pictures. I ordered their schoolhouse wand that allows me to attach numbers with velcro to show the grade level. On one side is “First Day” and on the other is “Last Day”. I love that I get to use it twice to keep track of my growing girls! Their nativity pieces are really pretty for the holiday season too!
