Little Bipsy Gifting Faves for Mamas

Although it can seem impractical and extremely low priority to indulge in something like a purse as a mom, let us just say that the handbags from 2x4 Los Angeles definitely present a “treat yo’ self” moment! Not only are 2x4's designs unique and stylish, they are also simple, and ideal for mamas on the go! We’re all about supporting small businesses at Little Bipsy, and this is another reason why we love 2x4 Los Angeles! Designed and handcrafted in Southern California by one-woman show, Anna Adams, every bag from 2x4 bares its own distinct beauty and authenticity. We know it’s a HUGE hassle to have a hobo bag or large tote over your shoulder when you have a baby and diaper bag to carry around. Luckily, 2x4’s Olive Cross Body Bag is the ultimate solution for keeping necessities within reach without adding extra strain to your already heavy mama load. Its lightweight size makes it perfect for easy-carry storing of necessities like your wallet, phone and keys. With one exterior back pocket, one interior pocket, a magnetic snap for secure closure, and fully adjustable leather strap, the Olive Cross Body is an ideal (and fashionable) everyday bag for mamas on the go! Snag one during 2x4's Black Friday Sale (11/24-26) with code: BLACKFRIDAY to save 20%! 

  
 

Every mama needs a pair of go-to stylish sunglasses! Brightside Eyewear founder, Kevin Pugarstarted the company with the mission of offering designer quality sunglasses for men and women without the steep price tag. Basically, you could say this guy understands that every dollar counts—especially when you’re a mama. Well ladies, we had the honor of testing out a pair of Copeland sunnies and not only were they a great fit, we dare say that they were better quality than several large labels that cost upward of a few bills. With their simple design and sleek appeal, we know you'll soon be a fan! And be warned, if you’re considering purchasing as a gift for someone else, you’ll probably wind up keeping them for yourself. Nothing wrong with treating yourself! Plus, if you shop Black Friday through Cyber Monday, you'll get an additional 30% off on all styles with code: "HAPPY" :) 

Although greeting cards are most popular during the Holidays, they are pretty necessary all year round with all the birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions that constantly pop up. Bottom line, it's a great idea to have a stash of cards on hand to remember those you care about. While the standard greeting card can be pretty generic, Fiber & Dye’s approach to making cards is anything but ordinary. With witty puns and original and unique artwork from founder, Lisa Aihara, every card is made with a specific person in mind.  Quite honestly, we’ve come a bit close to placing a few of their cards in a frame instead of an envelope to add a splash of fun to our home decor. Isn't that what you do with great art? Anyway, we decided to make a quick list of people that we found the perfect card for instead! Go ahead and give Lisa's shop  a gander! We know you'll find more a couple of items for some very special people!

 

 

 

 

 

  

In need of a vacation? With a candle from Cote Candle Company, you can make your home smell like a vacation destination! Made in the heart of Los Angeles, California, in a town called Pasadena, every handmade scent from Cote Candle tells a story. If you've been dreaming of a trip to sunny CA then the scent of a California Citrus or La La Land candle will bring you darn close! OR if you happen to prefer a more traditional fragrance with a modern twist, we recommend Lavender Sweet Tea or Orange Wood. Each candle is handmade using 100% soy wax, unique fragrance oils, and  lead-free cotton-core wicks, which are then hand-poured into reusable, beautiful apothecary amber and clear glass jars. While definitely too heavy for a stocking stuffer, a candle from Cote is a thoughtful and luxurious gift you’ll be glad you added to your Holiday wish list!

Has anyone else heard the phrase “throw pillows are the stuffed animals of grown women”? We stumbled across this truth bomb through a meme off some mommy Instagram, and to be honest, we could not agree more. So, now that we’ve dropped this revelation on your lap, we would like to confess our obsession with the throw pillows by Linen & Ivory. Founder, Kendra Farmer, started her business six years ago as a creative outlet that quickly turned into a full-time job. Now, Kendra works alongside a team of eight other talented women that help bring her ideas to life. By thriving off each other's creative abilities and passions, Linen & Ivory has become a business fueled by the passions of mamas who are able to do what they love while being with their families. Have we sparked your curiosity yet? We hope so! Head on over to Kendra’s shop and take a peek at her adorable and whimsical throw pillows!

If you prefer tea over the typical mommy go-to (coffee), or are looking for a cozy gift to enhance your much needed and well-deserved R&R time, we can’t gush enough about our love for all things ceramic by Betsey Carter. Betsey is an exceptionally skilled ceramics artist and creates each piece with the goal of making useful and beautiful objects suited for everyday life. Though Betsey creates a vast assortment of exquisite items, we can't get over her gorgeous tea sets.  Simple, chic, modern, and classy, Betsey’s teapot, and sugar bowl and creamer pieces are not your typical mundane household items. Instead, Betsey’s design and authentic craftsmanship put us in a dilemma of whether we should add to our home décor and display the tea set as fine art, OR—live make teatime a mandatory part of our weekly routines. While we certainly aren’t tea or art snobs here, all we can tell you is that this tea set is a practical and unique gift, sure to be relished by any mama with a love for beautiful and useful things!
