Earlier this month Bluff City Lights was busy picking out unique items from some of our favorite stores to put together a local gift guide. I have always been a big fan of shopping local and supporting these small business. Around the holidays my favorite stores get even more inventory to choose from. I found some great stocking stuffers, gifts for your mom, friend or sister!
My top three Memphis picks were Spruce, Indigo and Falling Into Place. Each of these three stores are very different, Spruce is home and accessories, as well as an interior , Indigo has a huge selection of clothing and accessories for all ages and Falling Into Place is a relative new store (two years old) that is home and lifestyle.
First of all, I have too much fun with these girls! Now, I am going to share what items I picked from my three stores.
SPRUCE: a pillow and earrings. This gift is perfect for your mom, aunt or anyone who is interested in interiors. I love collecting pillows and mixing and matching prints. I also chose a pair of Brave earrings. Brave is a local jewelry line that is sold in Spruce.
INDIGO: This has been my clothing store since day one of living in Memphis. They have such a wide variety of styles, I make sure to take all my friends and family here. During the holidays they stock extra gifts perfect for any girl. If I am going to give more than one item as a gift I love for it to be a theme. From Indigo I went the evening/bedtime route. First pick was this bath sponge which I had never seen, you can use it up to 15 washes! It smells amazing and leave a little coat of shimmer on your body. They also have smaller sponges that last 5 washes, have no shimmer but smell just as good! I chose this extremely soft plaid Bella Dahl nightgown which comes in separates as well and my all time favorite, Hanky Panky. Indigo always carries Hanky Panky underwear and since its the holidays they are selling this cute box of three. The reason I love these so much is because even though they are lace they are the most comfortable and are one size fits all, you can never have too much underwear and this is a gift any girl would be happy to get!
FALLING INTO PLACE: This store is so unique. It is filled with local gifts. I chose their signature candle because they are actually made by the store owner in the store. As a bonus, a portion of proceeds from each candle sold go to the International Child Art Foundation. I also picked out this beautiful Memphis art my local designer Whitney Winkler. The blue colors are very Memphis and there a bits of metallic accents which is very me! I plan on getting my pieces framed for my sons room.
