2017 Holiday Gift Guide

This is a sponsored guide of OMB-approved gift ideas handpicked by our contributors to bring you the best of our local businesses.

It is no secret Orlando offers amazing locally-owned shops and businesses that make living here more beautiful. To help you keep your dollars local and tackle your holiday shopping, we have put together this gift guide with some of the best businesses around.

Wander + Lust Jewelry

If you haven’t heard about local mom-owned jewelry shop Wander + Lust, well, here is your new Orlando obsession. Owner Ashley started her line of gorgeous, bohemian jewelry for the modern, free-spirited woman, and her pieces are simply perfect.

OMB Gift Pick

Moonstone is known as the “Stone of Hope”. It is a token of harmony and balance, and is also referred to as the “traveler’s stone”. Wander + Lust’s Tiny Moonstone Necklace is a bohemian, yet simple piece perfect for everyday wear! It features a genuine rainbow moonstone set in your choice of rose gold-fill, 14K yellow gold-fill or Sterling silver. The beautiful pearly white, purple and blue stone hangs from a high-quality 14K gold-fill, or Sterling silver satellite chain. It is an absolutely stunning and one-of-a-kind piece that will last you a lifetime! It’s perfect for gift giving this holiday season.

Lindsay Streem Designs

Lindsay Streem offers jewelry and accessories crafted with handmade tassels, crochet and gemstones. From dainty earrings to boho necklaces, her timeless designs with modern detail will be sure to impress.

OMB Gift Pick

Her best-selling mini bag tassels are available in a gift set trio this holiday season, perfect for almost everyone on your list. These tassels add flair to handbags, backpacks, planners, keyrings, and more. Made with quality vegan leather, they are a thoughtful cruelty-free gift!

Goldfish Swim School of Winter Park

Growing up in Florida means water everywhere, so what better gift for the kids in your life than the gift of confidence in the water? Goldfish Swim School has taken care to make their bright, clean facility and brand-new pool the best, most comfortable place for your children to learn to swim. And we are lucky enough to have them right in Winter Park!

Goldfish Swim School’s Holiday Gift Package is the perfect way to gift their swim lessons! This includes two months of group lessons, annual membership fee, two family swim passes, a picnic blanket, and a water bottle all at an amazing discount. They have lessons perfect for all age groups and experience levels, so there is something for everyone! 

Basic Bebe

 Let’s be real…what mom doesn’t like to be basic? This cute shop is the perfect place to find gifts for all the little ones or new moms in your life. Owner Morgan Drohan is  a lover of all things fun + basic—especially for little bebes in her life (her favorite, of course, being her neice, Elo). Check out all things basic on her site.

OMB Gift Pick

Basic Bebe has a wide range of onesies listed, each one super cute, but we just love the  “Got My Mama on My Mind” onesie. Onesies come in different sizes, colors, fonts, and can be customized for any Bebe!
