HOLIDAY PREVIEW GUIDE 2022

INSIDE: ERIN’S MULLED WINE | OUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY FINDS HOW TO BUILD THE PERFECT GIFT BOX | TRADITION-MAKING IDEAS


ON HONORING ALL THAT MATTERS LETTER FROM THE OWNER Hi friends. As we are welcoming an addition to our family, I find myself in new, yet familiar territory. It’s a beautiful and special point in time, and also one wrapped tightly in uncertainty with a hyper focus on the fundamentals of existing: rest, eat, caretake, walk, breathe… and let’s do it again. It’s a rhythm not unlike the intimate isolation we all experienced through the pandemic. It’s in this space, on the edge of the holiday season, that I find myself very aware of the things that really matter. Like FEELING CONNECTED. To another person - a loved one, neighbor, pet, special client or even a stranger for a moment. To the place you live feeling at home in your own space and the neighborhood and city you live in, too. To the objects around you - the stories of process, time and people they share with you. And MAKING YOUR OWN TRADITIONS. Through the pandemic, we had the chance to second guess all the things we did during the holidays that fell in the category of “that’s just the way we’ve always done it.” Some of those traditions we ached for. Others, we felt relieved they were paused. As we move forward, we can use our imagination to invite in what fills us up and let go of what no longer serves us. Or really SAVORING THE MOMENT. In times of isolation, whether because of sickness, the first weeks of caring for a newborn, a new move, etc., the one thing we can control is being fully present. Smelling that tea and closing your eyes before you take a deep sip and feel the heat spread down your throat into your belly. Watching fireplace flames crackle and pop while you feel the heaviness of your wool blanket envelop you. Not talking for a minute and taking in the different octaves of the chatter of the people surrounding you. Those little moments, along with the big, build the most Beautiful Story. The holidays are such a special time to put into practice all of these things. I hope this guide will serve as fun inspiration to set your own intentions and preview the season ahead at the shop. Thanks always for being an important part of our story. In community xo

S AVO R I N G A L L THE MOMENTS Fall and winter seem perfectly designed to welcome in all the smells, sounds and visuals to activate your senses and help you slow down and deeply savor the moment. Some of our favorite things to do at the shop during this season are layering scents of incense and candles, bringing in twinkles of light and putting on a crockpot of our team member Erin’s famous mulled wine to warm you from the inside out. And we’d love to share that recipe with you! We highly recommend making a big crock pot of it, piling up some snack plates and getting into a puzzle for a cozy night in.

ERIN’S STORY “I lived in Stockholm for five years and I think the holidays are the most enchanting time of year in Sweden. The sun sets in mid afternoon and it's snowcovered landscapes peppered with small red houses, thick lush winter greenery and white twinkly lights. As with all Swedish holidays, it's all about the food and drink and there is nothing more Christmas-in-Sweden than glögg. This mulled wine recipe is the closest thing I've ever made to the traditional glögg, and the Swedes in my life agree. The secret is in the steeping, to be patient and let all the flavors deepen. God jul!”

ERIN’S MULLED WINE Ie Traditional Swedish Glögg Adapted from a The Spruce Eats recipe SERVINGS: 4-6 servings (or cups) INGREDIENTS 1 bottle not-necessarily-fancy red wine blend 1/2 cup sugar 2 tablespoons orange zest 2 tablespoons raisins, plus more for serving 1 tablespoons green cardamom pods 2 tablespoons sliced ginger root 1 stick cinnamon 8 whole cloves 1 1/2 cups bourbon or spiced rum (optional) 2 tablespoons slivered almonds Orange slices or thin ginger cookies for garnish Combine wine, liquor, sugar, orange zest, raisins, cardamom pods, ginger root, cinnamon stick and cloves into a 2- to 3-quart pot. Heat until 175 F and let simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep for 1 hour. Strain out fruit and spices and gently reheat the liquid. Add a few slivered almonds and raisins to each mug, garnish with a slice of orange or ginger cookie and serve. *This can be made ahead of time or saved for later. After the straining, simply store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To serve, warm it up on the stove or in a crock pot.


ON FEELING CONNECTED Shopping small. There’s something magical that happens when you find Just the Right Thing to honor the connection you have with another person. It’s a Thing, yes. BUT you went to that little shop in your neighborhood that told you all about the passion of the person who made it. Or maybe you met the maker yourself at a popup and saw the twinkle in their eye when you asked them how it was made. When your person unwrapped it, you see a spark of oh-you-know-me-so-well and then that Thing becomes a part of their everyday life and they think of you every time they use it. Connection compounded - it’s an energy that can’t be machine manufactured.

THE CONTAINER

Pick a box or basket that is slightly larger than all the goods you’ll put inside. It’s best to be a bit packed in versus spread out so the roundup feels full. Make sure breakables aren’t touching each other and if you are shipping, add in a little bubble or cardboard spacers for protection. You can even float this box in another box for extra safe shipping.

THE ADORNMENT

Tuck in a few dried flowers, candies or decorations that fit the tone of the gift you are giving. To finish, wrap the box just as it is in ribbon or fancy it up a bit and wrap in gift wrap paper or fabric furoshiki wrap. Consider opportunities to use some of the adornments on the outside of the package, too.

2

THE FLUFF

Layer 1-2 pieces of tissue paper on the bottom of the container. Fold it just right so you can tuck it closed for a nice unfolding experience. Then stuff the container with crinkle paper and nestle your items inside or wrap everything individually in more tissue.

THE SENTIMENT

Take a moment to handwrite a message to your person. It doesn’t have to be eloquent, just sincere. The message can be a little letter on a nice card or a simple phrase like YAY markered on a tiny piece of cardstock. Adding even a few words makes your gift feel personal and specific.

THE INTENTION

Sprinkle the package with your good intentions and gift with joy and delight. We can help you curate your bulk special gift orders for groups, clients or events. Click here to learn more
