The girls and I have been a little under the weather this week (OK, a lot under the weather) so I haven’t had a chance to put the finishing touches on the gift guide I was hoping to post. Instead of going without one, I decided to highlight a fun one that was sent to me last week.

Young Republic Christmas Collection gift guide

I’m a big fan of supporting small businesses and independent designers (which is why I love to feature handmade round ups from time to time) and Young Republic is a pretty fab marketplace for independent designers all over the world. Have you heard of them?

Since the site features all independent designers, the gifts you’ll find there are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. Some of my favorite bits of their gift guide are the kids and home sections (Drop It Like It’s Hot tea towel, get in my kitchen!).

Chock full of fun, unique designs you definitely want to check this site out before you get really serious about your holiday shopping.

*On an unrelated note, I’ll be back tomorrow with My Week Through Instagram (which I’m going to start posting on Fridays instead of Wednesdays) and some fun links from around the web!

I was not compensated for this post. All opinions are mine, all mine!
