For this year's gift guide, we are doing things a little differently. If you didn't already know, a few of us here at Campfire live for podcasts. From business advice to fascinating real world stories to insightful dialogue on current events, whatever you're into there's a podcast for it.
So, we decided to curate our gift selection this year as an ode to our podcast BFF's! And as an added bonus, we've teamed up with Stephanie Ganz of The Apple Cart to curate a very special foodie focused Part II of our gift guide, complete with delicious podcast recommendations as well!
So take a look, buy some sweet gifts, and definitely treat your ears to these shows on those long holiday road trips!

Ceramic Intentions Candle by NA NIN *local*
The Ceramics with Intentions collection is a collaboration between NA NIN and local ceramicist, Carla Pilsbury of Lifeware. We love the Eucalyptus & Sage scent, intended to evoke feelings of starting anew, clarifying and seeing in a different light.

Moleskine's Weekly Planner
From first hand experience, this is one of the best planners ever. Sleek and light weight, each week's planner is divided with days of the week on the left and notes on the right. It's great for keeping track of deadlines, jotting down notes and planning for future to dos. I honestly couldn't work without it.

This super affordable faux leather laptop case is as awesome as it is functional. With 8 different colors and a mousepad included, it's perfect for guys and gals who work on the go. Bonus: it's great for carrying in your favorite backpack since your computer slides from the side!

Ban.do Agenda Starter Pack
The cure for any gray Monday or long night in the office is stickers! Well, maybe happy hour, but definitely also stickers. Ban.do is one our favorite brands for bringing in a little extra cheer to the office.

Paul Paige Lighting *local*
Leslie Quenneville of Richmond refurbishes vintage and found objects into unique and eclectic pendants, sconces, and table lighting. We love the quirky aesthetic and breadth of styles she has available, they're perfect for anyone who appreciates the detail of a thoughtfully curated space. See them in person at the Elevator Collective Holiday Studio Party on December 9th.

Umbra Wall Planters
We can't get enough of these wall planters used on a recent interiors project, Gather Scott's Addition. You can cluster just a few or cover an entire wall for a bold statement. Gift them with a few air plants from The Great Big Greenhouse for your favorite plant mom.

Cotton Stitched Baskets
Handmade on a farm in Maine, these baskets are crafted with all natural cotton. We love the minimal and organic textures of each, a great fit for any modern home. These baskets are perfect for busy parents who need a place to toss stray toys or your favorite KonMari devotee.
