We are officially in the thick of the holiday season, and 24/7 shopping is in full swing. Year after year we all swear we’ll start shopping earlier, or not buy gifts for as many people, but the stresses of gift giving still always come on strong this time of year. If you are struggling with a few people on your list, you’re in luck, because below is a full holiday gift guide to woman owned businesses who have tons of items just itching to be shipped to you! As always shopping woman owned is important to I Am Woman, so here is a gift guide that makes shopping woman owned easy! For each business you will find a personal review, pictures of ready to purchase items, as well as direct links to each business. Shopping should be fun, easy, and intentional; here at IAW we hope this helps make that possible.

Lei - Lei
As a recovering shopaholic, I firmly believe in gifting yourself during the holiday season & if you happen to like jewelry, Lei-Lei is the business to support with any self indulgence purchases that might be slipped into your regularly scheduled holiday shopping. The reason I recommend gifting yourself with an item from Lei-Lei is because while you’ll be gaining a beautiful piece of jewelry, you will also be helping to support women in 3rd world countries gain financial independence. You might be asking yourself, how is this possible? Well, Maria Murphy, the owner of Lei - Lei is partnered with a few agencies that work with impoverished women outside the US who are artisans, making a living creating various different items. Some of these items you will come across at Lei - Lei. I love to gift jewelry from Lei - Lei because not only are the pieces she sells so unique, but there is also a beautiful story that goes along with it. However, if you or the people on your gifting list are not jewelry people Maria also has a wide variety of bags & other fun trinkets, all with the same meaningful purpose behind them. Before checking out with some gorgeous earrings or wonderful new tote, enter promo code IAWHOLIDAY15 for 15% off your order!

Provisions is a small business that hand makes essential oil based wellness products including soaps, beard serums, and other household items. I have a special relationship
with each business listed in this guide due to all of the wonderful, hard working women who run them & all of their products truly make me happy. However, Provisions has found a way to work itself into my life every single day. I cannot say enough good things about the products at provisions, since I met Kat about 3 years ago I started using her acne free skin care line & my skin has never been the same since. In full transparency, I do use other products on top of Provisions but I can whole heartily say that I will never use another face wash again. Every item smells delicious, nothing is ever harsh on the skin, and I can accidentally get some in my mouth without having to worry that I may have ingested some terrible toxin. If you have a person on your shopping list who loves new skin care products or someone who lives an all natural lifestyle, Provisions is a great place to find them a gift. With that being said when checking out, code IAMWOMAN, will get you 15% off your order. If you’d like to learn more about Provisions, you can click here to read more about them.
The Pretty Pink Rooster
The Pretty Pink Rooster is just as unique as its name, where you can find all kinds of cute & unique items. Alexandra Daras is the owner of the shop, she prides herself on the uniqueness of the store. I’ve heard her say multiple times that if you see something you like, buy it because she can’t guarantee it’ll be here tomorrow and she never reorders items. The Pretty Pink Rooster is both a storefront and an online store so if you're in the Bernardsville, NJ area you can stop in to shop. I would highly recommend you do so because no matter who is there, whether it is Alexandra herself, or someone else who works at the store they always are willing to assist you & the whole staff is always so joyous to be around. If you don’t live in the area there is also an online store you can shop from. She ships to both the U.S. & Canada! The Pretty Pink Rooster is the perfect place to shop for someone on your list who appreciates unique items & gifts with stories behind them. When shopping, keep in mind that if you use code IAW at check out you can get 10% off your order! To learn more about The Pretty Pink Rooster click here to read our full article on them.
Sister Nature's Creations
I recently just learned about Sister Nature's Creations, through Robyn & immediately I fell in love. I can’t wait to work more with Tiana! Sister Nature’s Creations is the perfect shop to support when shopping for the crystal lovers in your life. Tiana not only sells some crystals/ stones, but she also hand makes jewelry with these stones. I have some across some of the most beautiful earrings & necklaces on her shop site. You can also find plenty of other items that will please the spiritual sisters your shopping for. Tiana was gracious enough to offer everyone 15% off 1 item at checkout with code Nature. Please be sure to check her out, you’ll be glad you did!
Winter Hill Jewelry
Winter Hill Jewelry makes custom earrings from 3D printing, using only plant based plastic. Every household has an environmentalist, and when shopping for them, it might be challenging to respect their morals. They'd adore receiving a pair of earrings from Winter Hill Jewelry! You can pick from all their unique designs & feel good about supporting family in their goals to better the environment! Robyn & I discovered Winter Hill Jewelry on our trip to Boston, where Robyn bought these amazing 3D printed book earrings & I got these cute studs. The beauty of 3D printing for earrings, is no matter the earring size, they’re light weight & don’t pull at your ears. Winter Hill Jewelry is another company I Am Woman would love to work more with as we go on because they have a great mission & make great quality items!
