I don’t know if this is a thing or not, but over the past month or so I’ve been having this internal debate whether to do a series of gift guides. I’ve tried in the past, and it was one of those things that I was never really able to do full-out. It ended up being half-hearted and I just, well, I hate that kind of thing. Over the past while, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s really best to do something right or not do it at all. That was my mom’s mantra growing up, and it’s just now setting in, hah. Now that it’s my first year out of school and I’m taking the time to send out big-girl Christmas cards, I was thinking this might be the year to make it happen. So here’s to making holiday happenings a reality, and to hoping I can keep my word with upcoming posts! Cheers?
First up we have a round-up of lovely things from baba souk. baba souk is an online boutique that caters to independent artists and makers. Stephanie carries one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted, and carefully curated items in her beautiful online space. You can clearly see her ability to pick well-designed items that have funky, yet timeless flair. She even carries a selection of work from Pinegate Road favorite, the object enthusiast! I just love this girl’s style, and was so happy to put together a gift guide featuring items from her shop.
I’ve picked a few of my favorite items above, and I hope that you get a chance to check out all that she has to offer. If you pick up an item now, she’ll gift-wrap it in a holiday edition of her signature style. Let me tell you, from personal experience it’s such a fun treat to see your new gifties come in such fun packaging! I do have a crazy thing for packing though, hah.
One last treat: Stephanie is offering a 15% discount at baba souk exclusively to Pinegate Road readers from 11/22 to 11/24. Enter the code ‘pinegate’ at checkout to receive your discount. Now, let’s get gifting!
