Valentine's Gift Guide!

Valentine’s Day is creeping up on us, and it can be daunting to know what to get your significant other, friends, loved ones, etc. We’ve compiled some local and maker-made favorites from Nashville, Hilton Head and beyond to make it easy to snag some unique and thoughtful gifts for those you love. Valentine’s shopping should be FUN, not stressful. Most of all, make sure your gift is meaningful.

As always, lead with your heart.

Jess’s Picks:

  1. Heirloomed Crossback Apron for mama and mini (there are matching ones!) I am in love with this idea.

  2. Fresh Rose Face Mask. I love this one so much! It smells great and feels amazing.

  3. Fresh flowers from Farm Girl Flowers — nothing like a fresh, lively bouquet.

  4. OUAI Hair Perfume — a pretty gift that is likely not what someone would buy for themselves.

  5. “Now is The Time for Dreams” book — great gift for the littles.

  6. Anything from Christina Kober! I love her handcrafted jewelry.

Heather’s Picks:

  1. Hand-painted Mini Clutch. I love all the designs from Sewcialite. All of her clutches and wares are gorgeous and unique. 

  2. Chocolate! I'm a HUGE Chocolate fan and for me... V-Day must include chocolate :)

  3. Classic Noor Sleep Tunic from Eberjey. Such a pretty gift but comfortable! Lingerie isn't really something I wear every night since one of my kids is usually climbing into bed with us at some point (ha!) 

  4. David Yurman Cable Spira Bracelet. I love a classic bracelet and I'm loving Rose Gold right now. This is such a beautiful staple piece. Available at Forsythe Jewelry.

  5. The Jazz Corner! My husband and I usually make a point to go out to a really nice dinner on Valentine's Day. If you're on Hilton Head Island you must check out the Jazz Corner. Its one of the best Jazz clubs in the South East. The intimate setting is perfect and their food is phenomenal.

  6. A trip to The Cottage Spa at Palmetto Bluff… yes, please! I think spa days are the perfect Valentine's Day Gift. Palmetto Bluff is my absolute favorite escape.

We made dinner, and everyone helped! While the food was cooking we played outside, went on a walk, played games — just had quality time together.
After eating (yum!) and cleaning up, we had dessert. Our little lady made cupcakes.

As we do every year, we read the notes in the jar from last year’s Thanksgiving. (I started our own little tradition — we write things we were so thankful for from the year and a few things we want to work on or hope for in the next year. Then, we put them in the jar and close till next year).

After writing our new ones, we sealed the jar. It's such a great way to focus on thankfulness together.

Afterwards, we all got in jammies and watched Wonder. It's an absolutely amazing movie, and it’s the epitome of kindness and goodness. PERFECT for this holiday! It was amazing to spend some low-key quality time with my favorite people — that’s what it’s all about.



Our Thanksgiving weekend was crazy good. We have a family tradition of running the Hilton Head Turkey Trot 5k. I threw Rose in the jogging stroller and Ella Grace runs/walks with Brian. This is one of my favorite traditions!


My parents were in town to cheer us on crossing the finish line. Then we hosted Thanksgiving at my house. We played board games (Ella Grace is super competitive) and then it was “all hands on deck” at the shop for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. The girls set up a coloring station outside the shop... they were super proud of it.

We also host a Santa House in the Village at Wexford on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The house is so cute this year! Very thankful for my sweet family and friends and time well spent.
