A Nocatee-Local Gift-Giving Guide (2018)
I have been so blessed to have wonderful business sponsors for the blog in the past year, many of whom are mom-run in my very own community, Nocatee, FL.
And so I wanted to compile some of my favorite local Nocatee businesses that you could support this Nocatee season (and beyond!) These are just a few of my favorites, with many other Nocatee moms running home businesses like BeautyCounter, Doterra, etc., so be sure to think local this Christmas for any gifting needs!
10. The Gift Goddess:
You may have seen that I partnered with The Gift Goddess to give away a Hello, Beautiful gift box filled with hair ties, a clutch and other goodies. The Gift Goddess operates under such a unique concept: they package themed gift boxes for all occasions so that you do not have to do the work! Her boxes are shipped for free anywhere in the U.S. Yay for easy (and cute!) gifting!
I have been ordering monogrammed gifts and matching holiday shirts from Alysha for years! This adorable Etsy shop is your one-stop shop for boutique clothing for kids. Alysha has always delivered wonderful, high-quality products and has helped design shirts for the kids for every occasion.
A local mom turned author, Meagan Scheuerman, penned up her struggle with PPD (postpartum disorder) as well as motherhood in this gem. If you’re a mom yourself or looking for a heartwarming gift for a mom, this would make a great stocking stuffer.
Amy has helped me make everything from Jags shirts for our boys to baby onesies for baby shower gifts. If you need a specialized gift for a teacher or gal pal, Gifted Boutique, LLC is your place! Amy’s turn around time is fast and her product quality is always just right.
6. Peony & Poe:
Give the gift of photography this Christmas season by purchasing a session with Peony & Poe. This busy Nocatee momma of two has found time to ignite her passion for photography and we couldn’t have been more impressed by the results of our photo shoot. From lifestyle photography to newborns and beyond, Risa is your girl for afforable photography needs.
Donna Mancini Interiors and Flooring has been my go-to place in the Nocatee area for home furniture and lighting for years! Donna and her staff offer modern, farmhouse-style pieces that are unique and in no one else’s homes. Most of the pieces in our home are from Donna Mancini as it has become a bit of an obsession!
4. Aesthetix Plus:
I’m a sucker for a good facial and little did I know an amazing medical spa would be opening just around the corner in Nocatee. Aesthetix Plus, a newly opened and locally-operated medical spa, offers facials, botox and other skincare needs. The facial that I just had there included a 24 carat gold mask. Dreamy!
Can’t forget about those furry friends this Christmas and a gift credit for dog care at Dog Days & Cat Naps could be the best way to gift a friend with a furbaby this Christmas season. JP and the team keep Warrior barking for more and we love having their local pet care service right here in Nocatee.
If you have a friend with a sweet tooth, The Cookie Rookery is your girl! Her customize cookies are sure to please and are beyond adorable. If you know of a friend whose child’s birthday is coming up, a gift credit to The Cookie Rookery could make the perfect Christmas gift!
I am not the tannest individual, so I would happily accept a gift credit to StayGolden. This mobile custom airbrush tanning offers natural-looking spray tans using safe products. After receiving a spray tan myself by StayGolden, I was hooked! No streaks, no yellow and it lasted for weeks.
Oh and I can’t forget, Lowercase:
I just love farmhouse-inspired wood signs and have already gifted several of these from Lowercase this Christmas! Create a saying, write down an inside joke or choose from her gallery of ready-made products. Every single one of her wood signs are amazing!
