trepwise 2020 gift guide
We are officially counting down to the holiday season, and it has been interesting to see how humanity is adapting classic traditions and rituals to our now pandemic universe. Whether you’re doing drive-through Celebration in the Oaks, Zoom caroling, or building bonfires on the levee, there’s one sure way to bring people together – a beautiful token of appreciation! In a serious effort to support more small and local businesses this year (highlighting a few fund 17 entrepreneurs as well) , we have discovered some perfect gems to share….
For your parents
Locals and out of town family will love a new work of art to add to the collection, and artist prints are an affordable and impactful way to gift. My faves this season are Marianne Angeli Rodriguez for a punch of color and Heather Bird Harris for subdued scenes.
For your s/o
Bundle up, grab a fancy (or not) bottle of wine, and experience City Park after dark with a romantic date on the water in one of their swan boats. Or take them camping with a side of ecological education at All You Need Institute in MS (a recent Fund 17 alum doing great things in permaculture)!
For your besties
Who doesn’t want their space to smell good? Claraty candles has a scent for all of your friends. Clara is the kindest human on earth, and she’ll help you pick out the perfect one for everyone! Also, if your person is into facials, this place is divine: Glass Skin.
Shaun is a Fund17 entrepreneur who has been kicking out messages of inclusion and love. I just grabbed a super soft and sparkly tee and it came so gorgeously packaged – Equalitees
Self-care during the holidays is essential, so purchase a massage from our friend Amy at NOLA Massage. And theres no better time than ever to invest in your mental health and well being. Fund 17 entrepreneur Ledora Yerks-Birdlow is a licensed counselor, life coach and certified clinical sexologist. “To optimize sexual wellness, one must apply self-love, care, and open mindedness to every endeavor.” Treat yo self to a better self in the new year!
For the kiddos
Take them on an artful adventure to JAMNOLA. It’s perfect for the whole family, really. Tix are now 25% off with code JOY25.
For the home
We are spending way more time at home, so why not create a space that promotes creativity, enhances tranquility, and won’t break the bank! The team at Where Y’art represent local New Orleans artists who are now selling pieces for under $100. Or give the gift that keeps on growing…plants or garden projects at Harolds are easy ways to start working on that green thumb.
