I always encourage supporting local business, but as everyone knows, it's even more important this year after the havoc that COVID has wreaked on our communities. I know holiday shopping can get a little stressful at times, so I pulled together a list of my favorite Kentucky local gifts I'll be giving this year!
Upcycled, handmade leather journals, sketchbooks and bags. How cool, right?! I found this artist through a maker's market several years ago and have been in love since. I'm a big journal person, so getting a new sustainable, fairly made journal for all my writing is one of my favorite things! If you want to gift a friend a little journal time, or even a cute bag this year, definitely check out Luna's work.
New Star South - Versailles, KY
I've been a fan of Reagan's leather earrings for a long time, but she's been expanding lately and has added so many more things! Her shop now has leather, acrylic, and clay earrings, masks and accessories, and recently began selling flavored marshmallows! My favorite would have to be the bourbon ones, but the peppermint ones sound great as well. She even added the Versailles print above to her physical location in Green Street Gifts!
Local Coffees - Kentucky
There are too many great coffees in Kentucky to just name one - so I had to include a few! Manuscript coffee has a holiday coffee called "Gift of the Magi" that really gets you in the holiday spirit. I talk about Lincoln Road all of the time, and what gets you more in the spirit than savings!? You can get my discount code for this brand on the Promotions Page. Some of my other favorite coffees in Kentucky for gifting are Nate's Coffee and Manchester Coffee Co!
To Go Beers - Lexington, KY
Welcome to my small corner of the internet! My name is Alex and if you know me (or have really seen me on any sort of social media), you learn pretty quickly that I LOVE food and LOVE sharing my love for food even more. Thus, the creation of this blog!
