Beyond Buckskin Gifts for Her!

Welcome to the second of our Beyond Buckskin Gift Guides! As we stated previously, we want to make it insanely easy and enjoyable for you to BUY NATIVE this holiday season. This means we will be featuring great products for great prices that are easily accessible and all made by Native American artists.

This second guide is for the gals (check out the BB Gift Guide for Guys here). Whether you're looking for a present for your sister, mom, bestie, or boss, we have some great ideas for the perfect gift.

Let's kick it off with the youngest ones on our list. For the itty bitty baby girls in our lives, we love Jamie Gentry's baby booties ($19) and children's tees ($19). They are ultra-soft, made with love, and Eco-friendly. For little girls, like our nieces or daughters, we love the fully-beaded Lady Bug coin purse ($26) or small earrings like these sparkling Navajo-made studs ($25).

Teens can be some of the hardest to shop for, but that's not the case when you give them Candace Halcro's beaded sunglasses ($59). They are fun, colorful, and very cool; your teen daughter, sister, or niece will be the popular kid sporting these down those high school hallways. Pair them with Dustin Martin's v-neck tee that was designed for his collaboration with Paul Frank ($30). Available in both royal blue and storm, they look great with jeans and have a relaxed fit. If she's been particularly good this year, throw in some jewelry by The Soft Museum - their accessories are totally fun and completely fashion-forward.

For our sisters or cousins, we love the Loksi Leather Wrap bracelet along with beaded earrings by Andrea Preston or hand-painted earrings by Mike Adams. Kathy Whitman Elk Woman and the Gaussoins also have exquisite options, like the popular Diamond Plate Fashion Earrings pictured below ($125-$145).

Don't forget our aunts! They will be looking refined in the porcelain collection of earrings by Courtney Leonard ($55). Pair them with one of the pretty new scarves by Avis O'Brien ($40) for an extra chic present. These scarves are also great gifts for bosses or supervisors.

For our moms and grandmas, the Loksi Necklace ($140) is a beautiful token of love and appreciation and looks so elegant. Couple it with a shrug by Tammy Beauvais ($60) for an extra treat.

For your wife, sweetheart or girlfriend, consider buying her a special Constellation Ring ($420) by Kristen Dorsey. They are lovely, and they remind us that despite how large the universe is, you two found each other, and this is a beautiful and magical thing. You can even steal this line when you give it to her :) But if rings aren't her thing, we also love the luxurious purses by Nathalie Waldman ($160-$925) or the Quill Star Medallion ($250) by Lonna Jackson.

And last but not least, treat your best buddies to some earrings by Mea B'Fly. Starting at only $20, you can get your friends a pair or two that match their unique personalities, or you can get your entire crew a matching set. Yes, I'm implying that you start up your own earring gang.
