Happy Thanksgiving! I love that we have a national holiday devoted to giving thanks to the Giver of all good things. We have a merciful, generous God!
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” (James 1:17)
Maybe you are wrapping up your Christmas shopping, or maybe you’ve just started. Whatever it may be, I want to encourage you to be intentional and generous, just like our Father. Gift giving is a great opportunity to bless those around you, and I would love for RSD to be a part of that blessing.
Our beautiful 2022 Holiday Gift Guide is packed with inspiration and ideas for everyone on your list, and this year we also have a special Holiday Shop, where we are adding new items weekly. Whatever your budget, whoever you’re shopping for — we have you covered. It never ceases to amaze me when I see a beautiful bag we make, and I know with humility that we have a lot to offer.
If you’re looking for stocking stuffers, great options include our chapstick holder, Lizzie, or Scrunchies. We have many items in our Holiday Shop that are $20 and under, perfect for stockings, teacher gifts and friends and neighbors.
Do you have teenagers on your list? How about a key fob with a car wash gift card attached? Other ideas are a Lizzie with new sunglasses inside, a laptop sleeve, or one of our several backpack styles (stocked with a good book or two!).
I’m not sure who is harder to shop for — teenagers or men! Leather is a great starting place for those hard-to-shop-for men, and I especially recommend our 1948 Dopp Kit, 1948 baseball hat and 1948 Apple watch band.
We also have gifts especially great for travel lovers, moms, and photographers. And as you may expect, any purse on our website will make a special woman on your list feel loved. Remember, whenever you shop with RSD, you are part of the designing process! The gift is handmade from start to finish, which includes your style and fabric selections.
Lastly, please remember this: don’t forget local makers and small business on your list! It makes a huge difference in our livelihoods, and almost always it is a much more personal gift than what you can find on Amazon.
I know this may be controversial to admit, but I have had my Christmas music going for weeks, so I am very eager to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Thanksgiving! ;)
With love and thankfulness,
