Threshold Holiday Gift Guide
Happy holidays! Whether you're looking for the perfect secret Santa gift for a work party or looking for something unique to gift a friend or family member instead of giving a last minute Amazon gift card–we've got you covered!
Giving and receiving gifts is such a fun opportunity to celebrate one another. To make it even more special give a gift that blesses the person who is receiving the gift and the person who you purchase from!
Supporting small businesses during the holidays is such a sweet way to take the opportunity to give someone you love a special gift, and support someone else in the process.
Thank you SO much to everyone who sent in recommendations for our holiday gift guide. All of these recommendations either support someone in the Threshold community or were nominated by someone in this community to support someone they love.
Enjoy shopping these sweet homemade soap bars! Check out the highly recommended charcoal face bars.
This shop features custom calligraphy on signs and canvases. The favorite product is a custom return address stamp. (This was one of the best gifts I received when we moved into our new house! So thoughtful for new homeowners this holiday season.)
Personal Wardrobe Styling (in-person or virtual) based out of Minneapolis, MN
Katie helps women reimagine their wardrobes by putting together stylish outfits with items they already own. A style session is a great gift to give to someone that wouldn't generally spend money on themselves in this way, or someone that would rather have an experience than an item!
Style sessions and closet clean-outs are her most popular services, but she also does personal shopping & event outfit styling as well. For more information or to book a session, head to katiebstyle.com.
These faith based subscriptions boxes are the gift that keeps on giving! They always have a theme and include resources and encouragement to grow your faith.
The perfect gift for someone who loves to be surprised! (I love receiving mine!)
This sweet Nashville based boutique is the perfect opportunity to shop small! They have a wide variety of all your go-to boutique gift items and you can get a taste of Franklin, TN (my home!) if you order online from afar.
Everyone loves coffee, right? Check out Guadalupe Roastery for your coffee-lovers gifts! They are mission driven, sustainably farmed, and directly sourced.
A favorite is the Nicaragua Medium Roast.
This one is for Nashville & Franklin locals–a custom cookie is the perfect gift for anyone in your life with a sweet tooth or a fun contribution to any of your local holiday parties! If you're like me and you don't cook, why not show up with some yummy & pretty treats for everyone to enjoy.
This is a great spot for any fun home goods or fashion products!
I also looked through their holiday shop and they have so many cute little gifts specifically for Christmas, like this picture book!
This shop features gospel centered apparel to strengthen and encourage you in your walk with Christ. I'm all about wearing what I'm calling Jesus merch (haha) so that you can start some conversations!
This is another local Nashville rec (sorry, maybe it's a sign you should move to Nash!) and this coffee shop is family owned and focused on impacting the community around it by supporting local churches and other organizations.
(I actually haven't been here but will definitely be checking it out!)
This shop features custom calligraphy and watercolor pieces. There is something so special about a custom-made gift!
I love how pretty these truth cards are and they would be a great gift for someone who you want to remind of truth in your life.
Support an independent author by gifting this 40 day devotional book to someone in your life. Encourage someone in your life in God's promises by giving them a gift to guide them through truth.
Gospel centered apparel for the adventurer in your life. They even have a vintage shop full of thrifted finds that are on brand with their earthy, adventure vibe. The vintage shop is perfect for anyone in your life who is passionate about sustainability!
This shop is full of art prints, stickers, and other handmade & illustrated gifts.
There are plenty of options that are seasonal or unrelated to the holidays. The little keychains & stickers are perfect small additions to any gift that needs a little something extra.
This is the perfect small family owned business to support for all of your handmade clay earring needs! It seems like they are constantly releasing new designs and products so there is definitely something for all of the ladies in your life–and this family is so, so sweet!
Check out their website for all of their cute earring designs!
And last but not least...
Consider gifting a photo shoot! There were lots of recommendations for favorite local photographers, and a great way to support their businesses is by gifting a shoot to someone in your life. Many photographers also offer printing, so consider getting prints through your favorite local photographer.
