Maptote Holiday Gift Guide 🎁

Favorite Maptote Holiday Gift: Our candles because they really just smell so darn good. People are always so surprised!  And I love giving our flat pouch filled with some fun art supplies.

Favorite Local Gift Shop: I love gifting cookbooks and the Tenement Museum has a great selection. 

Favorite Holiday Tradition: Last year my friend invited us to a holiday cookie party.  Everyone had to bring 15 homemade cookies and we all traded them. It was so fun and we left with lots of yummy cookies.  I’d love to continue this tradition and bring one of our round trays for everyone to take home with their cookies. 

Favorite Maptote Holiday Gift: I am super excited to gift a Maptote Blanket accompanied with our new gift cards. “Winter is coming….” and what is better than having a warm blanket to curl up in and have a winter staycation while it’s cold outside.

Favorite Gift Shop: I love Sault New England and we dropped by their Portsmouth, NH store this summer. I picked up a bottle of Fisherman Hand Scrub that I use after every fishing trip!

Favorite Holiday Tradition: We love hot chocolate around the holidays. We did these great custom mugs for Peace & Riot that would be perfect to carry on the hot tradition every year… 

Favorite Maptote Holiday Gift: The Foodie Slim Pouch is perfect to fill with something delicious. I have made an NYC themed pizza kit for loved ones that includes local ingredients and a recipe card!  A classic Cheers! wine tote with a bottle of something bubbly is a go to as well.

Favorite Gift Shop: The Social Type stocks such beautiful stationery – who wouldn’t love a beautiful (and useful!) hand painted memo pad for their desk?

Favorite Holiday Tradition: I love to pick out wrapping paper each year, and spend an evening with my husband wrapping gifts for our loved ones!

Favorite Maptote Holiday Gift: I have had friends deliver their first born this year and nothing could make a softer gift for their new bundle of joy than an organic cotton Maptote one-piece! I also love the idea of gifting something to create coziness, and I think our mugs hit that mark perfectly!

Favorite Gift Shop: If you’re looking for a place to find a fun novelty gift, look no further than Friends NYC. I love gifting magnets, and I absolutely love giving their mini NYC taxi magnet to friends visiting.

Favorite Holiday Tradition: It’s tradition for my mom and I to decorate the Christmas tree together. I can’t wait to give her one of our cute wood ornaments.

Favorite Maptote Holiday Gift: You can’t go wrong with our wine totes as a gift. I either gift a bottle of wine along with it, or create a mulled wine kit and add some tissue paper on top.

Favorite Gift Shop: Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store is such an adorable local gift shop. They carry our Maptote items too! These adorable slippers would be something I would gift a friend.

Favorite Holiday Tradition: Our holiday tradition of Secret Santa stocking stuffers! Maptote stickers and coin purses are perfect for this family tradition.
