Last Minute Gift Ideas for Small Shop Lovers

The holidays have done it again! Snuck up on us in the blink of an eye. You think you’re prepared and have all your gifts ready to go and then you realize you’ve forgotten five people. Or maybe you’re just a late shopper in general, my mom likes to say she “does better under pressure” so no shame in late shopping. As you may have read, I am a big small shop lover. Here, I have a bunch of last minute gift ideas for small shop lovers. Whether you’re the small shop lover or the giftee is, either way these are unique gifts that most people didn’t know they wanted 😉 Some are geared toward children, some are for children at heart, and adults alike.

Most small shops need a generous amount of time to get things out and rightfully so as they are handmade. These shops right here have deadlines up until Dec 18th to get your items by Christmas but honestly, at the pace shipments are going you’re gonna want to place your order right. now. I should also note that some of these aren’t exactly small shops but the gifts are unique and special. So here ya go…go spend the rest of your money!

Maple Shade Kids

cutest bookends and picture/art lines painted with love in the cutest shapes possible


wooden signs, clocks, and more. Not to mention the store owner is so lovely to do business with and ships super quick.

bookroo book subscription

 A gift that will keep on giving. You can sign up for one month, three months, six months, or twelve months. You can get either three board books or two picture books. They also give you 15% off on your first order. This is a gift Nora would love as we love new reads around here!

parsy & the date

This shop here is a collection of the most whimsical fun items all in one place. Right now there are curated stocking stuffer bundles, purses, necklaces, and so much more. While they mostly curate for children, some adults would be delighted to receive one of their boxes. Check it out, if not for now, for later!

Little Unicorn

Known for their muslin goodies like towels, sheets, and swaddle blankets. They also have notebooks, and other beautiful things adorned with their darling prints.

Gathre Mat

We have to yet to have the pleasure of owning one of these versatile leather bonded mats, used for play time, changing time, and beyond. A variety of sizes and price points makes it easier than ever for everyone to own one and love one. They are calling my name for sure!

Stendig Calendar from Need Supply

I always find a calendar to be the best gift as we are starting a new year and this one is extra special. It’s so simple, yet the perfect art piece that’s functional.

Oak + Made Letter Board

If you haven’t noticed, letter boards are all the rage right now. I really love the Oak + Made ones because they are felt, with a few sizes to choose from, and give the option of a bunch of wood/felt combinations. Perfect for your quote lover or wordsmith.


*this is A letter board not the one recommended, that one is next on my list because I love the ones with felt!


So this place is not a small shop by any means but I’m obsessed and it’s not something you can buy everywhere. They make delicious candies, many infused with libations. My husband got me some champagne gummy bears a couple years ago and now I can never go back to regular! So. Good. You will not regret a single dime spent on these luxurious little cubes.

Happy Shopping!

*I am in no way affiliated with any of these shops, all opinions are my own!
