Brand photography in sunny San Diego
and around the world since 2017.
It’s that time of year again, time to start buying holiday gifts for friends, families, and most importantly those badass boss babes, in our lives.
If you’re like me, this is your favorite time of year, not only becasue it’s a great time to reset and put new goals in place for next year. Because it’s a perfect time to support other small businesses. You can support them by buying your holiday gifts from them. (Extra added bonus, by purchasing your holiday gifts from a new business, not only are you supporting them but they could also be potential clients in the future, which means you are starting to build a future pipeline. Double win!)
I thought I would share a few of my favorite holiday gifts with you, from some of my favorite small businesses locally in San Diego.
Last but not least, I’m big on giving holiday gift experiences, the memory will last a lifetime and I find busy female entrepreneurs are typically the first ones to skip that acupuncture appointment or massage.
Contact Joannie from @twohandswellnessevents to book an in-home massage or couples massage for that person you REALLY wanna spoil (and yes it can be for yourself)! #selfcare
I love the meditation & self care focused books from Emily @soulsadventures !! These are the perfect gift for those busy ambitious people who need a relaxing bedside read.
My acupuncturist @riannbullock is a miracle worker!! She specializes in helping pregnant mamas, pain relief, and more. You will leave feeling sooooo relaxed and balanced.
Treat someone special to Body – Mind – Soul Magic from Cynthia at @equilibriumbycynthia. She has incredible packages that combine yoga, astrology chart readings, and light crystal healing. This is the best way to jumpstart your year!
There are no words to describe my obsession with @saffronandsageskin – it came into my life during the pandemic and I haven’t stopped glowing since. Perfect for someone with sensitive skin or who lives in a different state.
Do you know someone who loves wine? Reach out to Jen your personal sommelier at @jcselectwines for help picking out a few special bottles for the wine lovers in your life! She will even ship it for you to make everything easy = the perfect holiday gift.
And for the best baked goods including cakes, macaroons, cookies and more… check out Steph & @nightowlsbakingco !! She also offers private baking parties where she can show you & a small group of friends how to bake these delicious treats yourself!
Send your group of business besties an itinerary for a much needed girls trip to – FILL IN THE BLANK!! Who doesn’t love a girl’s trip? My girl Jazmin @femavengetaways will do all work, all you have to do is show up. (Gift Cards Available!) These are unique getaways are geared towards foodies, culture, and one-of-a-kind experiences!
Brunch, Biscuits, Bubbles and so much more. It’s my favorite neighborhood breakfast stop midweek.. Take someone to a holiday brunch or buy them a gift card for @sunnyboybiscuitco.
For unique and custom floral bouquets, Jennifer from @huntressflorals is your girl! An easy gift to add so much cheer to a home this holiday.
Give someone a holiday glow or help them prep for that upcoming winter getaway. Lindsay with @shadecollective does custom at-home spray tanning sessions.
Yes, I know that is 11 holiday gift ideas but I just couldn’t narrow it down to 10, for obvious reasons! Honestly, any of the above gifts will leave that special someone feeling fabulous and entering 2022 Confident AF!
Last but most definitely not least, if you happen to know a photographer who Is looking to up elevate her skills and attract her ideal client in 2022 then check out my The Pose Method Course.
In addition to the brands above and when I am on the hunt for something more tangible like a cute journal, crystals, or piece of unique jewelry then I also love shopping at local boutiques such as Communal Coffee, Green Fresh Floral & Plants, Earth’s Elements and Graffiti Beach.
