Holiday Gift Giving with Maven Market

 


Gift giving is one of my favorite things to do during the holiday season. I love to seek high and low for that perfect gift for family and friends. Seeing thier face fill up with joy and excitement when they open up the gift, is one of the best feelings. I’m pretty sure I got this trait from my mom. She is always seeking out the best and unique gift for family and friends.

This year, I discovered Maven Market, and she is my little christmas angel. Maven Market is a collection of gift boxes that were carefully curated by founder Jillian Gorman. They contain a wide range of quality handmade products made by local artist and artisans. Even the box itself supports a small business! Maven Market provides you with the convenience of selecting a thoughtful, meaningful, luxury gifts for your loved one (or yourself! wink, wink) in the comfort of your own home. 

This is a perfect way to support small local businesses! Maven Market just launched the mini boxes, and they are beyond adorable. I want them all! One gift for you, One for me… right? 

Best part…

Jillian, owner of Maven Market explains her passion behind Maven Market.

Gifts are meant to invoke joy and well-being, and we rally behind those who use their own gifts to bless others. These boxes promote creative expression. intentionality and community. To pay it even more forward, a portion from all sales go to City of Refuge in Sacramento. 

On May 6th, 2017, they launched a Kickstarter campaign that was fully funded by 138 generous backers.

Above all, this project was meant to honor the life of our daughter Norah. Her fifteen minutes in this world had an incredible impact on our lives. Remembering her life, and death, as well as the invaluable gifts that we received from our creative community that brought so much healing, is the motivation to make this business a success. We hope in turn that it blesses others as much as it’s blessed our family.

Let’s Wrap with our Holiday Favorites from Bash Party

We’re kicking off the holiday season and our to do list wrapping our gifts and making them all sorts of pretty!  I am a big Bash Party Goods fan and love using their amazing collection at parties.  When I saw they had an amazing wrapping paper collection for the holidays I was super excited!  One of the best part of the holidays is gifting to the ones we love, I just like to make them look extra pretty while I’m at it…

Here’s their collection with a Beijos twist.  I added some fun little bits and bobbles to each gift and I can’t wait to pass them out to my loved ones in a few weeks!  There’s still plenty of time to get your wrapping paper, so head on over to make sure yours are just as pretty!

Kicking it off with this Snowing Pink paper… I love that it mixes pinks with reds!  And how cute is this gift tag by Poppy Jack Shop?!  She has so many great pieces in her Etsy shop right now for the holidays.  I’m also obsessed with that fringe ribbon I added, I basically want to wrap everything with it now!

Next up, we aren’t using any green up in here!  It’s all about mixing the pinks and mints my friends!!  Gotta love this Jazzy Trees print…  I added some really pretty velvet ribbon, because I’m all about the velvet these days.  And well, fresh flowers are always a good idea!  Even on gift wrap!

This is the paper I felt was the most traditional… Sort of reminded me of peppermints, must be why it’s called Peppermint Sprinkles!  With the red and pink colors I felt like it needed something else… So I added some mint pom poms and disco balls, because that is what one does!  Obviously!  I also think a bit of eucalyptus tucked in wouldn’t be a bad idea…

Last but not least, the gorgeous Sweater Weather print.  No ugly Christmas sweaters up in here!  I love the mix of colors, you basically can’t go wrong here!  I played with more pom pom trim of course and love it!  I can’t wait to see everyone’s faces when they open their gifts!!

Happy Wrapping!

Beijos x Gunn & Swain – Fall & Winter 2017 Collection

If you follow us you know we love our Gunn & Swain blankets!  So much so that we have collaborated on a few collections.  Well, we have a new collection for you just in time to get cozy over the Fall & Winter season.  Think pretty jewel tones along with the best pastel blanket I’ve ever laid eyes on.  They are the perfect addition to your home or even a great gift!  

To make it even better, they are each named after a place in Portugal… Even the Azores where my family is from!  Let’s take a look at these beauties!

You can shop them all here!

Let’s start with the Azores blanket… I love this pastel goodness!  Named after the islands off the coast of Portugal that I am proud to be from.  The colors of this blanket remind me of the beautiful hydrangeas that cover the islands.  If you’ve never visited this magical place, you should.

It’s the perfect addition to a nursery, an outdoor picnic or on your sofa at home!  I also can’t wait to use this one in the Spring on the beach, so many good options!!

Next up is the Costa Azul, named after a beach area just south of Lisbon.  The place is known for beautiful beaches with water’s as blue as the sky.  Sort of perfect for this turquoise goodness, no?!  This one is already in my boy’s room and they love cuddling with it!  They love how soft and cozy it is, and I can’t complain because it brings me the best cuddle sessions.

Last we have the Lagos blanket, named after a beach town in Southern Portugal in the Algarve.  I haven’t been lucky enough to visit this region, but plan to in the next few years with my family.  I hear it’s amazing!!  My husband can’t wait to go there because it’s known for great surf!

I love the bougainvillea pink color of this blanket, definitely one of my favorites ever!  It’s beautiful for Fall, but honestly great for any time of year, and any room in your home!  This one is a must have…



A few more shots of these beauties!  And did you see our collab tags on them?!  We’re feeling official over here!!

Don’t miss out on these as they are a limited selection!  Never too early to get that holiday shopping done!
