I often find myself telling people “there's something really cool happening in Utah” or “don’t sleep on Salt Lake City as the next big e-commerce hub”. Since moving to Utah 3 years ago I have been pretty blown away by the rich network of eCommerce brands based right here in this beautiful mountain valley. There is something unique and special happening in the Salt Lake metro area around the empowerment of individuals to follow their dreams and build amazing brands.
So now, I find myself shopping from so many Utah brands as a way to show support for my fellow entrepreneurs and also to help spread awareness. If you are looking for holiday gifts to delight your friends and family, here are some of my favorite items from brands right here in the Beehive state. Bonus - all of these brands have massive Black Friday Deals available now!
If you have never had a pair of Bamboo Pajamas it's time to treat yourself and anyone else you’re shopping for this holiday! Did you know that manufacturing with bamboo compared to cotton dramatically reduces the carbon footprint? That makes these a great gift for your conscientious loved one. Spread the cozy vibes this holiday!
Of course, I am going to shamelessly plug my favorite UT brand - Dorai Home. And I honestly believe our products make excellent gifts! Our Bath Stone Mats are a great option for the person who has everything! Shopping for a cocktail enthusiast? These Coasters are a great addition to any bar and they won’t break the bank.
Have a new mom on your Christmas list? As a new mom myself, I can tell you they are doing a lot of handwashing baby products and they’d probably love our Dish Pad & Rack combo for all of their drying needs! Lastly, our Plant Saucers are perfect for the green thumb in your life. These instant-drying saucers protect your surfaces while watering your poinsettias!
Have any outdoor enthusiasts on your shopping list this year? Perhaps they’d like a Hammock from Grand Trunk!? These make great gifts for your team at work as well. And if you plan early enough you can even have them customized with your company logo.
Calling all side-sleepers! I’ll admit that initially, I was a little leary of spending so much on a pillow. And after using the Side Cube myself I can tell you that it is a complete game changer! I have been sleeping better and waking up with less neck and back pain. If you have a loved one that sleeps on their side they will thank you nonstop for this thoughtful and functional gift, trust me!
Who doesn’t love a good Crossbody Bag!? At $32 this cutie is a steal this holiday season. Their clear crossbody is great for attending a concert or stadium when you’ll need a small clear bag for entry…The Eras Tour is coming back to the US next year, after all!
Not looking for a gift, but instead looking to spruce up your entertaining space or guest room for those holiday visitors? Here are some great deals on furniture and decor that will have your friends and family thinking you got that big holiday bonus this year!
