The holiday season is here, and with it comes our first Handcrafted Holidays Gift Guide series. Each week, we will showcase two gift guides (one for the women and one for the men) highlighting our favorite footwear for the season alongside handcrafted items from local artisans. And the best part? You can enter to win all of the items featured by following Rockport on Instagram and liking each giveaway post.
This week’s guides are for those who like to get dressed up. Here, we’ve curated a few of our favorite woman’s pieces from local vendors, made right here in our birthplace (Massachusetts!).
When we came across this beautifully crafted silver clutch with its oversized bow, we were instantly charmed. It’s made by hand by @eclustyle and can be custom-ordered in more than twenty-five colors.
If you haven’t yet seen the jewelry made by @shepherdsrunjewelry, you’re missing out. Here we’ve included two of our favorite necklaces from the local artist, who is based in Somerville, MA, but studied fine art at Dublin’s Institute of Technology (so worldly!).
We’re loving the yummy scents of these natural, vegan cold pressed soaps from @ollieandmaxsoapco, based in South Hadley, MA. Soap is only one of the many sweet smelling goods they sell. Check out their lip balms, perfume, deodorants and men’s products, too!
No dressy outfit is complete without a pair of pretty and comfortable heels. These pumps in cabernet boa snake (maroon is so hot right now!) are the perfect hue for the holidays. Crafted from full-grain leather and infused with the latest in comfort technology, these classic pumps are luxurious and built to take you from your 7 a.m. wake-up call to 7 p.m. “off-call” cocktails.
