Holiday Gifting - Shop Local, Shop American: Fashion and Beauty

If you are looking for clothing and shoes made in America, it's a daunting task. Most of these items are now made overseas but I've found a list of great choices.

Munro Robyn Booties come in 6 colors including leopard suede! They have flats with a hidden wedge for support and comfort too.
Munro Alita tall boots with stretchy panels and a water resistant finish will look great with skirts or skinny jeans.
Any guy on you list will love these bamboo t-shirts
or these baseball tees.
Check out Norton's USA for more items including toys, jewelry, and more.

Cleveland Clothing Company has soooo many great choices for everyone on your list. Instead of an ugly Christmas sweater, you can gift a sweatshirt that will fill in nicely and not be scratchy.
This hoodie is so cute - I want one in every color!
Same with this t-shirt
Another local t-shirt company is Fresh Brewed Tees. They have some fun choices too. This one honors our rock 'n roll roots.
Love this one for your favorite Irish girl - but isn't EVERYONE Irish on St. Paddy's Day?
Local company Images in Bloom makes lots of handmade soaps, scrubs, jewelry and silk Shibori scarves.
They also have a Ciderhouse Cranberry Soap that would be nice to tuck into a stocking.

Crabtree and Evelyn has a lot of great products that are made in the USA and will keep your skin soft and smelling good.



This Deborah Lippmann hand cream has sunscreen, shea butter, avocado, and jojoba and multitasks as a cuticle cream too.



How about showing off your love of the West Side Market? You can get these cute shirts, a shopping tote or even a gift certificate.
My husband always seems to need a new belt - this one from Nordstrom is reversible and also has two different textures.

This packable fedora will keep his head warm and it a major style upgrade from a ball cap.

This thermal striped infinity scarf is super soft and will keep her neck warm.

Hanky Panky makes super comfortable panties, bras and camis in fun colors.

This set of 7 waterproof eyeliners would make a great stocking stuffer.
For her nails, Zoya has the most gorgeous nail polish. Love this set:
and it even includes my all time favorite sparkly red - Blaze. 

Another local t-shirt company is Lost Hero Clothing
They offer a shirt that says Cleveland in Hebrew that is totally unique and fun. Another shirt that is sure to grab some attention is the CLEavage shirt. It also comes in a Browns version too. 
They are at Republic of Artists this weekend in Warrensville Heights so you can grab a shirt and check out all the other great local gift ideas.
Some of my favorites from the media preview were: 
Audrey's Chocolate - the PB&J is killer!
Soffia B robes are the BEST I've ever seen - silky on the outside and soft inside
Olivia Marie Designs - cute keepsake boxes and she also customizes Hershey's nuggets
The Little Hound - love the Golden Retriever ties and bags of fun - huge variety including treats for your furry friend
Republic of Artists' Carnival Couture is this weekend  
The BEST part about this pop up is that is benefits Rescue Village!
Starts Friday at 5pm.


*Disclosure: I was invited to the media preview of Carnival Couture. I received a gift bag of goodies along with some snacks and beverages. I also received a t-shirt from Lost Hero Clothing. As always, this did not influence this post. All opinions are my own.*
