Gifts for Her & Him, Home & Them

Growing up, my favorite moments were spent over winter break when the luxurious gift of time was bestowed upon little me — better known then as “Messy Jessie” for the many craft projects that blanketed our home’s hardwoods in glitter, twigs, and bits of tartan ribbon. I’d spend whole weeks making and dreaming and hunting for the perfect presents for loved ones. I found a sense of pride in punching above my weight, poring over endless aisles and catalogs to unearth the biggest and best gifts that my budget would allow. Then and now, my holiday compass points to what is joyful, useful, beautiful, and worthwhile. This year’s holiday gift guide is stocked accordingly with consciously considered ideas and objects that are ethical, sustainable, well-made, and filled with delight. I hope you enjoy them as you celebrate many merry moments this season. PS: 34 slow fashion, healthy home, and natural beauty spots and Cyber Week deals to shop.

Elizabeth Suzann Silk & Sevilla Smith Shoes

     I can’t go a few days of wearing these without someone asking who made these beautiful shoes by Sevilla Smith, so I’d like to share a little review: Know that each pair is made according to your exact specifications, from leather type to width to the occasional Midas touch. When these flats arrive they should feel very tight for the first couple of wears, but won’t leave a single blister — scout’s honor. Give them two days to loosen up and they’ll melt into the softest, buttery leather socks that have ever adorned your sweet feet. Since they’re made-to-order it will take around two to four weeks for them to arrive at your doorstep — it’s worth the wait. Every pair arrives with its own little hand-stamped shoe bag. There’s also a sling-back style as well as a lace-up ankle boot. Unless she’s on the road, Faye Sevilla Smith’s shoes are hand-hammered within ringing distance of The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
