"It's one of a kind."
Isn't that a powerful statement? A stranger approaches you at a party and asks where they can buy that cool dress you're wearing and you get to say, "actually, it's one of a kind."
I always enjoy finding a truly unique gift to give a good friend- something that conveys how special they are to me. And when I receive a thoughtful gift that I know wasn't arbitrarily selected from a bin at Target I know that I will hang on to it forever.
Two of my good friends specialize in creating one-of-a-kind items that make amazing presents. Since it's the holiday season, and the malls are in full swing, I thought I would give you an alternative to fighting the crowds.
My friend Kellie has a clothing line called Material. All of the pieces are one-of-a-kind, and every time I wear one of her creations I receive compliments. She also specializes in Game Day Dresses which are ideal for any female college football fan/girl who doesn't care about the sport but wants to look cute during the game.
My friend Brittany has a custom embroidery store on Etsy. She recently did this for someone. I think something like that would make an awesome gift for parents or grandparents.
