Out of the Box: Unique and Thoughtful Gifts

As I tidy up my Christmas shopping, I’m reminded of how much I prefer to buy thoughtful and unique gifts as opposed to mass-produced things. If you are local, there are a ton of these options at a little store in Falls Church, VA called Stifel and Capra. Christmas is only a few days away, so if you’re in need of a last-minute gift, I encourage you to think original and stop by a local store!

I frequent this store about once a week to find new treasures and sometimes to replenish my chalk paint supply. Here are a few things there that would make great last-minute gifts!

Beautiful, handmade, tile tray created in Arlington by a woman named Heather Lezla at Persimmon Street. Check out her stuff online in her Etsy shop. I buy something of hers almost every time I’m in there!

These are obviously just a few pictures but it is a great little shop filled with lots of treasures. If you live by a place like this or have always wondered what’s in that little store you pass by often, go inside and take a look. There are probably thoughtful gifts just waiting to go home with you!

Merry Christmas everyone!
