Every year we publish a Fringe Gift Guide for holiday giving, but this year we are really feeling its importance. 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for so many small businesses, so we urge you to shop small as much as possible this year. A lot of your favorite shops have worked hard to bring their offerings online so you can shop safely and comfortably from home, and Fringe has done the same! This year we have more gifts than ever available in our online shop, including many from our local artisans. In our gift guide we feature several local jewelry artists. Unfortunately we were not able to list each unique piece on our website, but if you see something you like, please shop with us in store or contact us to purchase.
To support our surrounding downtown shops, this year we have also included bonus gifts for each Fringe Girl that can all be purchased online from some of our favorite local retailers. Enjoy!
The Boho Babe
She’s a free spirit with eclectic style, loves flea markets and unique handmade goods, twirls to Fleetwood Mac songs, and might be known to have a collection of crystals. She’s missing live music, but taking sanctuary in bringing all the good vibes into her home.
Brazen Shop & Studio
Brazen Shop & Studio is one of our favorite downtown stops for local and handmade goods. Shop their Goldstatus Botanicals – Lavender Oat + Cedar Bath Soak for the Boho Babe on your list.Shop Bath soak
The Zoom Professional
Whether she’s a teacher, a therapist, an editor, or an executive, she spends half her day on video calls with her team, clients, or students, and at this point she’s just trying to hold it all together and not loose her mind. She’s missing the water cooler gossip, but has mastered “waist-up fashion.”
At Ideal you’ll find an array of unique and specialty goods, all with great design in mind. Keep the work-from-homer organized with an Apica Notebook to keep by her side for jotting down reminders, to-do’s, and meeting notes.Shop the Apica notebook
The Adventure Seeker
She’d rather be backbacking, sitting around a campfire, or exploring a National Park. She dreams about #vanlife and finding those secret, off-the-beaten-path spots no one else knows about. She missed the abbreviated winter season last year, but can’t wait for this season to start.
Backcountry Essentials is the local go-to shop for the outdoors, with great gear and accessories for outdoor enthusiasts. Grab a personal pack towel for the Adventure Seeker on your list to stash in her backpack for where ever she ends up next.shop personal pack towel
The Stay-At-Home Queen
Stay-at-home order? No problem! That’s her favorite place to be anyway, and now she has a legitimate excuse to cancel plans and never put on real pants ever again. She’s missing girls night in, but it’s eased by the cuddles of her new kitten.
Babygreens is a plant lovers dream! Packed with tropical houseplants, cacti, and airplants, there are plant babies for all levels, from green thumbs to “am I watering it too much or too little?” A zebra plant might be a little more advanced, but the Stay-At-Home Queen has time to care for it because she isn’t going anywhere.shop zebra plants
She likes classic style with a contemporary twist, and always has the perfect balance between casual and sophisticated. She knows what she likes, and she likes to keep it simple. She misses drinking rosé and catching up with all her girlfriends, but she’s using her downtime to Home Edit the f out of her pantry.
A local jewelry company with a cause, Apse hand crafts every piece just for you, and donates a portion of sales to fight social injustices like human trafficking. Their pieces are timeless, just like the Minimalist likes, and the Magnify Stacker Ring is the perfect piece for her to wear every day.shop the Magnify stacker
