1. Geaux Clear Collection // Transparently chic, this local line of clear clutches and crossbodies are both concert and stadium approved, taking you from the fashionable front row to trendy tailgates and touchdowns. Accents like gold hardware, funky spikes and fringe tassels give each look that girly glam. 

2. House of Nola Luxury Flowers // For friends, family and lovers alike, the petal-perfect biz features hand-picked preserved roses that last up to five years. Each arrangement is made to order in colors ranging from snow white and smokey blue to a gorgeous red, arriving in a suede blush hat box bedecked with ribbon.

3. Ellion // Add “Get Lit” matches to your scentsational gift, thanks to Ellion’s hand-poured candles with cherry wood wicks and custom fragrances that fill the entire room. Consider travel-inspired scents like La Mer, Bon Voyage and Jardin d’Herbes or, for the holidays, Joyeux.

4. Bonfolk // The quintessential sock-ing stuffer, the personality-plus brand features a range of styles and sizes suited for the entire family. Big kids, little kids, babies and adults can all stay cozy in fun-loving prints ranging from Xmas gators to beignets.  

5. Lekha // Sweet dreams are made of a pair of lightweight muslin pajamas. The coziest way to slumber, this breathable loungewear, handmade in India, gets even softer with each wash. They’re perfect for nights in and ideal for relaxed days out when paired with your favorite sneaker or mule. 

6. Mimosa Handcrafted // Just in time for season’s giftings comes Mimosa Handcrafted’s namesake collection. Lovingly made by hand, each bronze and sterling silver cuff, earring, ring and pendant necklace are inspired by the Mimosa tree - known as the tree of collective happiness.
