A helpful guide to holiday shopping.
Wow wow wow wow wow - HOW are we already here? Where has the time gone this year!? I know many of us are preparing for a big weekend of shopping, and if you're anything like me you might be already scoping the deals and organizing your shopping list. I hope this gift guides makes it juuuust a little bit easier to gift shop here at Bailey Campbell Art, and I've included a few products from some of my favorite small businesses too!
I know it can be easier to head to a big-name retailer, throw a bunch of things into your cart, swipe your card, and call it a day... I know that... but if you're already here on this blog post I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for thinking about small businesses too. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, but when you shop from a small business and/or artisan you know exactly who you're supporting. You're helping pay a rent check and helping us achieve our little sueñitos (any In The Heights fans out there?), and not padding the pockets of the figure heads of a large corporation.
Whether you're shopping for Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, belated Ramadan Eid, and/or more, I hope that you're able to find the perfect gift (or two) here! Thank you so much for choosing to shop small, for supporting my business, and my small little family!

A Stationery Set
We spent a lot of time during the pandemic rediscovering ways to connect from a far, and snail mail is personally something that I hope continues to stick around!

Earrings by Fruity Poms
Okay, I am OBSESSED with Fruity Poms, and all of the earrings that Daniela makes. They are colorful, bold, and just plain fun - I have two pairs (sunflowers and pumpkins), and they make my outfits way more exciting. She makes each earring with 100% wool materials and stainless steel findings, and she releases her work in collections. I'll warn you, they sell out FAST. Check out her website here!

Badass Support Sports Bra
A workout, but make it fashion! If you have an athlete or workout junkie on your list this year, this sports bra will add the perfect flair to their daily routines. The material is moisture-wicking to help keep them dry, but for the optimal support I recommended it for low to medium intensity workouts (I'm not going to lie, I haven't tried it with a high intensity workout.. I think I'd pass out haha). Get one here!
Sister Outsider iPhone Case
If you have a beach lover on your list this year, this iPhone case is the perfect gift. It has a solid back and flexible sides that make it easy to take on and off, with precisely aligned port openings. The sleek design is available for iPhone 7/8-12 Pro Max.
I may be able to replicate this design with other works if given sufficient time - please just reach out to me directly if this is something you're interested in! You can get your Sister Outsider iPhone case here.
Floral Headband by CAF Creations
Corinne is one of my insta-friends that I met (virtually) through the creative community, and her work is beautiful. She works primarily with acrylics, and creates vibrant and expressive florals and landscapes. I have been gifted her headbands the last two Christmases, and they're seriously my favorite things to rock in my studio. If headgear isn't what you're looking for, head to her website and check out her g o r g e o u s originals, prints, and ornaments instead! Her use of bold colors and creamy, unapologetic textures is so energizing to look at - a perfect gift for an art lover, or someone who loves a bold accessory! Check her out here.

Desk Lamp with Clamp by Canvas
This desk lamp is genuinely my best friend in my studio, so if you have someone on your list who runs a business, livestreams, or even is just looking for a better way to take flat lay photographs I 10,000% recommend this! They are so easy to move around, and have three light colors plus a dimmer for the perfect photo every time. There are few different options for add ons (a base, magnet clip, etc.), but they're definitely worth the investment. Check out their store here.
The New Jim Crow

Gift Card from Luna Boutique, Canton, NY
If you're a Northern NY follower, you definitely don't want to miss out on Luna Boutique in Canton, NY! Hailey, the owner, is one of my besties from high school, and she has created a true gem in the NoCo. I can personally vouch for the amazing customer service, as well as the fun, fashionable products available. If you're not shopping locally, you can order online (but if you're ever in the area, stop by! It's definitely a pitstop must for me).
