With the countdown on for Christmas, some of you still might be struggling with what to buy that special lady in your life. (Especially for mom, who always says she doesn’t need anything.) Well, to help you get the creative shopping juices flowing, we have a few suggestions from some of our favorite local vendors/artisans. Because even though she says she doesn’t need anything, she deserves it. 

Brianna's Handmad Body Scrub

Brianna’s Handmade Soap and Body Scrub

Handmade in Arlington, Brianna’s soaps focus on clean ingredients that won’t strip your skin of natural oils, leaving it dry and well, not feeling very clean. Who needs dry skin this time of year? No one! Not only will Brianna’s handmade soaps and scrubs leave your skin feeling soft and healthy, but they will also awaken your senses with scents like green tea and lemongrass.  A soap ($6.25) and scrub ($13.95) combo is perfect for the toiletry junkie in your life.

Jenwey Tea - High Tea for Two

Gift set from Jenwey Tea

Every lady deserves a few moments to relax and drink in all of life’s beauty. Tea master Lisa of Jenway Tea does just that with her Massachusetts handcrafted teas. Unique flavors like black bacon and smoked grapefruit will not only help mom relax but ignite her imagination as well. Do you want to join mom? Check out the high tea for two gift ($175) which also includes freshly baked scones, meats, cheeses, and other goodies. 

Katherine Jetter Jewelry & The Vault

Light up her eyes with a shining piece of jewelry from couture designer Katherine Jetter’s collection. Take it a step further and have the Australian-born, Nantucket/Boston transplant create a custom piece. We also love pursuing the designer’s Nantucket shop The Vault, where Katherine has curated collections from some of her favorite couture designers. 

        A Bottle of Back Bay Perfume from Bluehill Fragrances

We love the inspiration behind Bluehill Fragrances, which is the natural beauty of New England. The Back Bay ($95)scent is influenced by the private gardens that are peppered in between the Back Bay’s brownstones. Those lush floral bouquets are mingled with a bit of a sea breeze and warm amber notes.

Gift Certificate to Boston Fashion   Designer Daniela Corte’s Studio   

Give the gift of shopping! Any fashionista would simply adore a gift certificate to Daniela Corte’s Boston boutique. Founded in 2000, Daniela’s contemporary fashion collection intermingles timeless elegance with modern edginess. This bold combination has gained her a loyal following from Boston’s most discerning trendsetters.
