gift guide/ Made in the USA gift guide: Esby Apparel



I asked Stephanie Beard, founder of esby, to curate our third gift guide. I first came across Stephanie's work at a pop-up shop, and I fell in love with the stylish, super-comfortable clothes and accessories. It came as no surprise, after seeing the quality of her construction, that esby is produced domestically, in nearby New Orleans. Naturally, Stephanie's gift guide exclusively features makers who also produce their goods here in the USA! This curation includes a range of American made goods, for everyone on your list. Read on for Stephanie's picks and comments!



FOR UNDER $20
1. Stumptown Coffee made in Portland, OR
Need a gift idea for your boss, new neighbor, or maybe you are someone’s secret santa… one of our favorite gifts is the Tim Root Set by Stumptown Coffee. Complete with fresh coffee and a special mug, Portland coffee maker and artist, Tim Root, are offering this gift set for a limited time, and for less than $20.

FOR HER
2. Kathleen Whitaker made in Los Angeles, CA
Minimal Jewelry can speak for itself, or layer so easily with multiple pieces. We love Los Angeles-based Jewelry designer, Kathleen Whitaker’s understated and unique jewelry line - especially her single bar studs. Her use of high quality materials won’t irritate and her simple designs will outlive trend after trend.

FOR THE BFF
3. Tatine made in Chicago, IL
Candles are such a great gift giving item and we think Tatine’s Woodsmoke candle not only smells better than anything else, it also lasts for a whopping 60+ hours, and that’s for only $38 a pop. Tatine candles are handmade with the highest quality ingredients and packaged beautifully.

EXTRA LOCAL
4. Because we had a hard time limiting this gift guide, here are few gift ideas we had to share, all made in Austin:
Son of a Sailor’s Gold Initial Necklace: So simple and special!
Leah Duncan’s 3 Piece Art Set: We see value in numbers and are in love with this 3 pack of prints.
esby apparel’s scarves and bandanas. Designed in Austin and produced in New Orleans, we think our very own bandanas and scarves make a great one size fits all gift!

FOR HIM
5. Imogene and Willy made in Nashville, TN
Your man will thank you once he slips on a pair of these hand-made, long-lasting, durable jeans. He will be wearing them for years to come, and probably every day. (We encourage denim wearers to wash less and wear often.)

FOR BABIES AND TOTS
6.Coral and Tusk made in Brooklyn, NY
Coral and Tusk has something for everyone. But we think their kid’s focused pieces are beyond adorable. They embroider each and every whimsical charter they dream up, and then make them into a pillow, framed artwork, toy, and more! We particularly love this banner - perfect for any kid’s room.
