Shop Local Holiday Gift Guide 2018 - Milford Moms Network

In addition to supporting small businesses, I love to shop local because of their attention to detail and customer service. From the friendly small talk, to the beautiful wrapping- I’m in!   I have curated a little gift guide highlighting two of my favorite local boutiques, both because I love the women who run them and I never walk out of their place empty handed!!  Sophie Claire’s and SV Decker Jewelry are both located at 22 Broad Street in Milford, and are my go to’s!  Hope you enjoy!!


1.Volcano Scented Candles by Capri Blue- This candle is a no brainer.  I have literally never met anyone who wasn’t obsessed, and in addition to the beautiful pink or white glass jars, you can also find them in gorgeous mercury glass, as well.  The perfect gift for her!  The teacher, hostess, or yourself!! They range in price from $20 and up.

2.Share plate– I love this idea so much and think it is the perfect way to spread holiday cheer!  The giving plate is a beautiful holiday gesture, and the gift that keeps on giving( literally!) $38

3. Barefoot Dreams Malibu Wrap– this wrap feels like a warm hug!  It’s kind of ridiculous how soft and cozy it is and is one of Sophie Claire’s bestsellers.  Get it before it’s gone!! $138

4.Barefoot Dreams hat and scarf set– In keeping with the cozy vibe, I love this set!  Perfect gift for a teen (my daughter is obsessed). Comes in 3 colors- taupy gray, dusty pink, and black. $89

5.Beautiful ornaments– Who doesn’t love a lavish and whimsical ornament to adorn their tree, or any seasonal decor?  Let’s just say that glittery champagne bottle is already wrapped and under my tree…and the swan is too cute!  Makes a perfect grab bag gift, too!!  $20

6.Merry and Cheers bottle opener– I love a detail and how cute would these openers look on a bar cart?  At $15, you really can’t go wrong!!



  1. Trio of rings These stackable CZ sterling silver rings are both feminine and beautiful.  Wear together or alone! At $30 each or $90 for the set, you decide!
  2. Layering necklaces are so on trend and SV Decker’s selection does not disappoint.  From the Coin Choker, $56 to the Mini Pendant, $52 , Saint Pendant, $46, and Long Coin Necklace, $58 your options are endless!
  3. I am obsessed with these Statement hoops!!  In three sizes, small,$46, medium, $52, and large, $58 these earrings make a STATEMENT…hence the name!  Sign me up…love them.
  4. Like I said, the selection of layering necklaces is vast…and I couldn’t leave any of these out!!  The small dogchain, $38 and large dog chain, $48 are strong and gorgeous.  I love how they are paired with the Crescent, $38 and Snake Chain, $42.
  5. Last, but definitely not least. I am in love with the 60’s Hoops, $58.  They add just enough flavor, but are so dainty and feminine.  You could dress them up, or with a tee and jeans…I love a versatile piece!!
