ANDREA: Breakfast Blend Tea Tin

I cannot consider my day officially started without a hot cup of tea, and with the weather gradually getting colder and colder, it is particularly essential!  I found the Breakfast Blend Tea delightful; a mix of Assam, Ceylon (and caffeine lol) that is essential in giving me my morning pick-me-up.  Plus, it comes in a lovely reusable storage tin, which is key if you’re the type to keep loose leaf tea blends on hand. Give it a try!”

TIP: We have several varieties of tea! Come in and check them all out, or browse our online store’s tea section. (NOTE: Sale only applies to in-store purchases.)

JEANIE: Beekman 1802 Soap

“The Beekman soaps are my favorite. They sell a nice selection of full-sized bars. My current favorite is sweetgrass. For the holidays they sell little sets already packaged to give as gifts.”

TIP: We also sell the adorable soap dish seen here as well as liquid hand and body soap, coordinating hand creams and lip balms from this wonderful company!

JESSA: True Heart Intuitive Tarot Guidebook and Deck

“This gorgeously illustrated tarot deck and guidebook, created by the iconic Rachel True, best known for her role as Rochelle in The Craft–one of my favorite movies of all time!–is the perfect gift for burgeoning witches and tarot newbies. True has a knack for breaking down each card’s meaning with great compassion and care, allowing the practitioner to develop their own instincts, while also providing little bits of memoir that correlate with the major arcana.” 

TIP: This gift goes well with our selection of crystals, candles and journals. You can also purchase this fantastic deck via Bookshop.

LAURIE: Cavallini & Co. Puzzles

“This is the gift that gives a reason to spend time together. It’s colorful and joyful and the pieces are sturdy. Great themes to choose from as well!”

TIP: In addition to these puzzles, we sell tea towels, pencil pouches and more from Cavallini & Co.!

SALIYM: Field Study by Chet’la Sebree

“With Field Study, Chet’la Sebree reworks and untangles the mess of love, race and self-reclamation. It’s a ring-shout of secrets, unencumbered shadow, and aching poetry. The perfect winter read for that introspective, well-read loved one. Personally, I believe the mood of it pairs perfectly with a candle, those cozy socks you love, and a cup of tea.”

TIP: Our copies of Field Study currently in stock are signed by the author! This is one of several books that Saliym has on his wish list for Brevity Bookspace, his mobile bookstore that provides free books to Delawareans. Consider purchasing a book from his list to donate while you’re doing your holiday shopping! Check out our recent Instagram post for details on this exciting collaboration. You can also donate a copy of The 1619 Project by Nikole Hannah-Jones to Brevity via our participation in’s 1619 Project Book Drive.

VIVIEN: David Howell & Co. Earrings

“My favorite potential gifts are the art-inspired earrings by David Howell & Co. I like how they take a bit of a twist on the art that inspires them making each pair unique. My personal favorite to get people would be the ones inspired by Hokusai’s Great Wave. I think they’re a great sneaky reference for art lovers but stand alone as beautiful for people who may not recognize the reference.”

TIP: We have lots of great earrings from this company and a variety of unique, affordable jewelry from small businesses and local artists!

As always, thanks for your support!
