2021 Holiday Gift Guide

This holiday season let’s get a little more creative with our gifts! Think local, gourmet, fresh, and curated for all of the people in your life. These top gift categories will open up your possibilities so you can’t forget anyone on your list.

For the Love of Local

Support some of our favorite local Orlando brands by shopping in-store with us for the holidays. We have sweets, stickers, and other locally hand-crafted items perfect for your fellow Orlando lovers this holiday season.

1. Stickers: Flower-themed stickers? Count us in! Stickers make great stocking stuffers for kids and adults. Everyone loves a new sticker on their water bottle or coffee tumbler. We have stickers locally designed by Friendlily Press. Anywhere from their well-known Love Orlando design, to the state of Florida, to flower and plant themes. Check these out in both of our shops.

2. Keychains: Another great stocking gift! We have fun floral-inspired and Florida-inspired keychains, the perfect little gift to give this year.

3. Umbrellas: This is probably the most appropriate present for our Orlando locals. These fun floral umbrellas made by Rifle Paper Co. will keep anyone dry in the Florida rain. Only available in-store, at both of our shop locations.

4. Artwork: Put a little bit of Orlando on someone’s wall. Simple, local designs by Bloomwolf Studio, and floral-inspired art perfect for anyone’s space.
