Shop Small for the Holidays: The Ultimate Local Holiday Gift Guide

Tis’ the season and it’s time to shop local! This is a great way to kickoff the holiday season with 20 of my all time favorite Indy businesses. Take a look below where you’ll find gift ideas and special offers!

Shop Small for the Holidays: your Local Holiday Gift Guide

G Michael Salon

If you've been following me, you probably knew that G Michael Salon would be in this gift guide. I collaborate with their team on a variety of projects and truly just love them and the relationship I've built. Their salon has a very upscale, cool vibe and their blowouts come with a hand and arm massage using Oribe lotion. Treat someone special to services at G Michael with a gift card or give the gift of amazing Oribe products from them. Stay tuned for their giveaway with me on December 20th. I can assure you, you won't want to miss it. 

LUXEredux Bridal

Shopping for your wedding dress can be so stressful which is why it’s important to do some research on where to shop first. Imagine a bridal store with beautiful dresses, great service, great prices, and the ability to take the dress with you on the same day. LUXEredux is a retailer that offers sample gowns from well-known designers that many brides might find more affordable than a traditional bridal store. The gowns at LUXEredux are also available in an online inventory so that brides can shop across the US. I’ve worked with them a few times for a styled photoshoot and to introduce the LUXE in a BOX service. Know someone getting married? A gift card would be perfect. Even if they don't find their dress at LUXEredux, this retailer offers beautiful bridal accessories. Giveaway happening November 29th.

Special offer: White Friday- Bring your bride tribe + say yes for even less! We’re offering an additional 10% off our already discounted designer gowns, Friday (11/23) + Saturday (11/24) only! Call 317.384.1034 to book your appointment or click here —> https://www.luxereduxbridal.com/request/

Sweet Olive & Co.

Sweet Olive holds such a special place in my heart since I have a personal relationship with the whole team and work with them on their marketing. They have four store locations around Indy and an awesome ecomm site (click here for all locations in Indy). Sweet Olive has the perfect pieces for almost any woman in your life from clothing to gift sets to home goods. They have a somewhat southern inspired styled, but also have cute gifts like handmade mugs and wine glasses. I'll be doing a giveaway with them on November 29th. 

Special offer: Use the code TRENDYININDY15 to shop.

Trisha Fish Beauty

Trisha and I have known each other since 2016 when she did my first ever lash extensions. Since then, she has reshaped my brows and helped me find Young Living Oils. These oils have now become a part of my daily life. I love that they are a natural way to aid with the everyday aches and pains, illnesses, and just overall healthy living. Trish is kind of an oil rockstar (and brow rockstar, too), but you should definitely reach out to her with questions on these. I'm thinking about getting my mom the starter kit for Christmas and that's a gift that keeps on giving! This giveaway is happening on December 6th. 

Special Offer: $25 cash back + a free roller ball set

Magnolia Boutique

Magnolia Boutique is an online only retailer with a warehouse based just south of Indianapolis. Magnolia is my go to when I am searching for a piece I can style multiple ways. Everyone on their team is so kind and I am grateful for the relationship I’ve built with Magnolia. They are truly one of the most supportive boutiques I’ve had the opportunity to work with. This is definitely a place to check out for mom, sister, daughter, girlfriends, etc. You really can't go wrong with any of their items (clearly since I've styled a variety from them).

Special offer: Use the code TRENDYTEN at checkout.

Lesley Jane

It’s hard to believe I’ve been working with Lesley Jane for over a year now and just a few months ago, they opened their second location at The Fashion Mall at Keystone. Lesley is this trendy, chic, kind woman with the desire to bring something different to the Indy area with unique brands you won't find at other local boutiques. I love that their pieces are versatile enough to style in New York, Europe, and Indianapolis. One thing they’ve worked hard on this year is their buying strategy to offer prices starting at just $45. A gift card for the fashionista in your life would be perfect. Stay tuned for their giveaway with me on December 6th. 

Special offer: You can use my code TRENDYLJB20 for 20% off in store and online.

Garish Gal

Fashion with a purpose is something I can 100% stand behind and that’s exactly what Garish Gal is all about. Owner Maggie, harnesses her NYC inspiration to bring cool styles to the Midwest and gives back 10% of profits to education based non-profits around the globe. Another unique aspect about Garish Gal? It’s actually a mobile boutique so Maggie can bring her styles to your next event in her decked-out, fashion filled trailer. Talk about convenient shopping! I’ll be doing a giveaway with them on November 29th.

Special Offer: Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday will be 30% off everything (except for Spanx products). All orders over $150 will receive a free Winter Hat. Spend over $200 and receive a free scarf!

For the rest of the holiday season: TRENDY15 any time during the Holiday season for 15% off their purchase (not combined with any other discounts). 

Abboo Candle Co.

When I come home and smell Mahogany Coconut, Autumn Nights, or Blue Volcano, my heart is so happy. Michelle’s scents from her company, Abboo Candle Co., are some kind of deliciousness and I love her slogan: Hand Poured, Heart Filled. I’ve been working with Michelle since earlier this year and have become a loyal customer because I am always burning a candle or her wax melts. Abboo Candles are perfect gifts for anyone at a highly affordable price point. Stay tuned for a giveaway on December 20th.

Special offer: TRENDYIN15 for 15% off your purchase.

Burger Study

A sister restaurant of St. Elmo’s makes this an easy favorite for me. Also, who doesn’t love a good burger and fries? Burger Study is unique in that you receive the same excellent service you would at St. Elmo’s or Harry & Izzy’s, but the prices are highly affordable. The quality of meat they use is only the best and you can enjoy the famous shrimp cocktail as an appetizers. This is a go-to when I want to dine downtown. Also, the best gluten free buns guys. They are giving away a $100 gift card with me on December 13.

Special offer: Get a free burger and fries (up to $21 value) with a gift card purchase of $50 or more through December 31st.

Standards Boutique

I first met Lisa at our influencer closet sale this summer. She introduced herself and told me she was opening a new boutique in Kokomo in a few months. We’ve worked together on a couple of projects and I love what she is doing with Standards Boutique. The store itself is beautiful and her products include some of my favorite brands: Free People, Quay, BB Dakota and so many more. I’ll be doing a giveaway for a $100 gift card on November 29th.

Special offer: Use the code Trendy15 and receive a free gift with purchases over $100 while supplies last.

317 Aerials

If you love Indy, you’re going to love 317 Aerials. Kevin is highly talented with his drone images across this beautiful city we live in. I keep telling Collin we need a basement so I can put these all over the walls, but for now this is perfect in our guest room as a friendly reminder to all those who stay at the Weber’s, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Kevin’s canvases and aluminum metal prints are great gifts for those loved ones that need some unique wall decor. My brother even has one in his new apartment downtown. I’ll be doing a giveaway with 317 Aerials on December 6th.

Special offer: Use the code TRENDY317 to save.

Suite Escape

This quaint salon will always hold a special place in my heart as they were one of my first collaborations when I started this journey. Suite Escape Beauty is located downtown Fishers and it's just adorable. It's kind of a one-stop-shop for your holiday shopping if you're looking to give the gift of fashion and beauty. Their owner Kylee is such a sweetheart which always make my experience there so fun. They have some pretty cool gift sets that I would suggest checking out as pictured above. This giveaway with be on November 29th.  

Hoosier Proud

I first partnered with Hoosier Proud for this post two years ago. They have the best Indy gear! You can get vintage Butler Apparel (and other schools like IU and Purdue) at Hoosier Proud's website. Tees from them make the perfect gift for college students, Indiana lovers, and Hoosiers of all kinds. 

Claire Clark Boutique

Claire Clark is an adorable boutique located in Pendleton, IN. I started working with them earlier this year because I love that they have the perfect combination of trendy and casual. They have pieces like the dressy bottoms and bodysuit I’m wearing which are great for work or a nice dinner, but they also have cozy sweaters. This boutique is one to check out when you’re looking for an outfit to take the kids to soccer or headed to date night. They will be in my giveaway on December 20th.

Special offer: Use the code TRENDY15 at checkout.

LASSI

Oh how I love The LASSI. I started working with them this summer and their team has helped me transform my skin and skincare routine. The Laser and Skin Surgery Center is located in Carmel and they provide a variety of services. They are a dermatology office, but I’ve been working with their aesthetics department to spread awareness on the importance of truly caring for your skin. Their hydrafacial and dermaplane services are my favorite so far, but you can’t go wrong with anything they do. As for gift ideas: a facial, their products, you can’t go wrong. Giveaway happening December 13th.

Special offer: 30% off your first service by following them on social + free dermaplane with any facial the first week of the month.

The Standard Threads

I started working with The Standard Threads last year and my collaborations with them have been wonderful. I've loved my pieces each time and the package always comes with a handwritten thank you note which I think goes a long way. Check them out for the girls in your life who love their basics that they can style so many different ways. My giveaway with them will be on December 6th. 

Special offer: TRENDYIN15 at checkout to save 15% + for every $75 spent, you’ll earn $10 Threads Cash through December 31st.

Massage Heights

If you want to give the gift of relaxation, Massage Heights is the place. I’d even recommend gifting yourself a 60 minute massage because the holidays can be so stressful. There’s something to be said about taking a deep breathe and just focusing on releasing the tension in your body for an hour. I had the opportunity to enjoy a massage with Toni last week and it was fabulous.

Special offer: Buy three gift cards, get one free!

The Layered Collection

Velvet is always a cool material to add into your wardrobe for the holidays and this top from The Layered Collection is just the right combination of dressy and casual. Their pieces are from high quality, chic brands that are perfect for the women in your life. They also offer gift cards which make for excellent stocking stuffers. Jenny has been the sweetest to work with and I’m looking forward to purchasing from her collection for my mom this season. A giveaway will be happening on December 6th.

Special offer: Use the code TRENDY15 for 15% off your purchase.

Frances + Parke

If you need to knock out shopping for the women and men in your life, Frances + Parke in Zionsville is going to be your go to. They have some of the best brands, comfortable styles, and great accessories. Collin and I were able to check out their storefront last weekend and in Collin’s words, “that place was really neat.” Tracy has everything from Herschel bags to unique pieces from The Normal Brand and even cozy winter pajamas. Stay tuned for a giveaway on December 13th.

Special offer: Every item in the store that is black will be 15% off on Black Friday.

Closet Candy Boutique

The name of this boutique is highly appropriate for all the goodies they have for your closet. I’ve been working with Chris and her team for the last year and a half and haven’t looked back. I LOVE to support everything they are doing. The Closet Candy store at Clay Terrace is beautiful and they truly have styles for everyone. At their store, they also have home goods and Indiana specific items.

Special offer: 30% off on Black Friday or TRENDYCCB at checkout otherwise.
