Christmas 2018 Gift Guide: Fashionista

Another gift guide is here! This one is for fashionistas. I am not much into fashion, but I thought it would be nice to put together a short gift guide of some of the fashion products that I admire from other small business owners.

One illustrator I admire is Melsy’s Illustrations. Her work is amazing and her story of how she started her small business just reminds me of what can happen when we continue to pursue your dream.

I have this illustrated art print sitting on my desk at home. I just adore the turquoise vanity and black dress.


I discovered Natalie Ryane some time ago on Instagram and have been following her work ever since. Not only does she create colorful stationery, but she also has a few dresses that she has designed patterns for.

I know spring and summer is far away, but I think this dress can still be added to your Christmas list.

I saw these pouches by Amarin and knew I had to share them with you. She uses different patterned fabric to create them so each one is slightly different. This will be perfect for a makeup bag, pencil case, or maybe a clutch.


I have been following KJP for awhile on Instagram and saw that new jewelry was recently added to their shop. These new jewelry pieces have me swooning. I know this is a bit more expensive than some of the other products I have shown, but everything is made in the U.S.A. so you will be supporting many American workers this Christmas.

I remember when The Paper Bar Co. reached out to me on Instagram and asked me how I tagged my products on Instagram posts. Since then we have been talking and cheering each other on.

They have pop-ups at different stores where they do self portraits that are done in their illustrated style. If you are in the area you should visit them and get an illustration done.

I liked this illustrated shoe greeting card they did. The bling on the shoe has me swooning.

I have virtual met Kate of Kateydids through a mastermind. Her handlettering is gorgeous on any of her products. I picked this adorable sweater to share since it can be worn from now all the way through winter.

I love sweaters! I created this cute greeting card illustrating some of my favorite sweater styles. Send this card to a friend that loves sweaters and fashion.

Send some fun snail mail this fall/winter with this plaid greeting card from my shop.

So these are just a few of my favorites. I will be sharing more gift guides over the coming weeks before Thanksgiving so you have plenty of time to buy them (especially if there are any custom products) before Christmas.

Disclaimer: I did not ask for the above entrepreneurs to participate, I specifically chose them and am not making any money off of this gift guide. I have put together these gift guides to promote the importance of supporting small business, especially those run by women.
