Buy Local Holiday, Part II

More gift-giving suggestions from our great state. Shop Local this season and every season!
If you still need more ideas consider a gift card to a local restaurant, a t-shirt or album from a favorite local band, or a book from a local independent shop!! 
OMG. How adorable is this Sweet Pea (implied) onesie?? Saracina Designs has adorable images for the whole family. I’m partial to the Lucky Star t-shirt.

I’m totally in love with Sebastien Millon‘s cartoons. Through his website you can purchase prints or shirts, even a Christmas card featuring baby pandas. Purchase and peruse here. If you ask nicely, he might even sign one for you.
Yum, these Truffle Bath Melts from Mrs. Brown’s Bath Bakery look so delicious they come with a warning lest consumers actually attempt consumption. The relaxing effects of chocolate but none of the calories.

The Jay Street Art Lab offer some awesome (and eclectic) offerings including ceramic masks, jewelry, and pin-up prints, both modern and retro-styled. 
This Geeky Boston Terrier Throw Pillow from Joyful Roots out of Bisbee makes a great gift for any nesting couple or dorm-bound student. Or me.
Spoke N Wheelz has the perfect gift for the cyclist on your shopping list. Like this super chill hoodie or something from their wide-array of t-shirts.

The Above Knuckle Rings are all the rage this season, or so the internet tells me. These rings by The Wicked Griffin are not only stylishly Bohemian but their also hand-crafted from copper so they have that unique AZ-flair we do so love here.
The name of the artisan says it all… You’re Gonna Love This fulfills on that promise with their too-cute personalized jewelry and charms, like the hand-stamped Love Birds necklace above.
This Elk Antler & Turquoise Pendant is made using naturally shed antlers by Woman on Wild Mountain. The perfect gift for the boho cowgirl or aspiring mountain woman in your life.

For that crafty friend on your list, how about this beautiful Bonfire Handspun Yarn for their next knitting project? If, like me, you love the yarn but hate to knit, Bewilderknits By Cora also offers a variety of already-knitted goods.
Go GAGA 4 Art offers quite a bit of cutesy crafts for the country kitsch collector, but it was this recycled art piece titled “Lady Mandala” that I was particularly taken with… and my guess is, I won’t be alone.
