Christmas Gift Guide
It's the most wonderful time of the year, and boy oh boy what a year it has been!!
Let's wrap up the year with a festive spirit - gifts, treats and stocking stuffers for the entire family.
We are here once again to not only make your gifting easier but to ensure that you know about and support small businesses this season, it has been a tough year for most, especially small business owners. So apart from us hosting some of these amazing brands at our upcoming Virtual Christmas Pop Up we offer you some options for the special people in your life that they would be grateful for based on new hobbies and interests . These unique and qualify gift ideas, made with love and care are sure to make everyone has a great Caribbean Christmas (even in the time of a pandemic)!!
The thrust to support small is increasingly growing and becoming more of a staple than a trend and The Fashion Arch Gallery is proud to be a supporting platform for this movement!
Let's start with something both unexpected and a huge trend for the year. Almost everyone at some point has become an interior decorator, baker/chef, and grown a green thumb! Very Verde is a go to to make any space beautiful with their hand made concrete decor pieces from plant pots and planters, trays, tables, clocks and even jewellery!!
Make everyday a spa day with gourmet, Caribbean inspired, cleansing bars and body butters, handcrafted by De Jeunésse! From the packaging, scent and benefits these natural products are a sure stocking stuffer to help anyone relax and look good and why not make things easier for those who can choose and purchase a gift chest filled with a sampling of all their goodies.
Hope you're seeing a trend here - We want to not only have your loved ones space looking good and them smelling and feeling good too. The following brands can help with that in their unique ways, no matter what life throws at you using one of these products will help you melt the stress away, have restful sleep and feel better about yourself.
This Vincentian brand is the first of its kind in the region to have her own fragrance, Kimya Glasgow Inc launched Vanilla Orchid to inspire boldness and elegance. With notes of red fruits and pear this fresh and fruity blend is a great gift for that special lady in your life!
Brighten any room with uplifting and calming scents and throw pillows from Elly Home Decor, their soy was candles (add wax melts) and pillows have become a hit and main staple of our online Pop Up, with over 16 scents to choose from and numerous prints for both indoor and outdoor use, this versatile brand will surely have an option for all.
For the tea and coffee drinkers/lovers!!! This Caribbean potter brings art, culture and nostalgia together with her mugs, cups and bowls amongst other things. Get a cup shaped like a cocoa pod, soda fired to resemble mugs granny had to the colours of the shells and sand at the beach, what's not to love!? Check out Art by Greta Michelle for some awesome hand made goodness for the kitchen/dining room and for the entire home with her incense burners *swoon*

Hands-free is the way to go and Ani Brook is making it as stylish as can be with her tropical inspired clutches, wristlets and the cutest hand sanitiser holders you've ever seen!! Take a walk and feel as if you're in paradise with these vibrant arm candy pieces!!
Minimal style with maximum impact! This Tobagonian brand, Nude Designs, crafts little luxury pieces that make great stocking stuffers, tween and teenager appropriate and a great mix of pieces for mum, aunty, grandmum and sister to love from rings, waist beads, necklaces, pearls, and dainty studs. We are especially loving their new Secret Garden Collection for the plant lovers with motifs of flowers, cacti, and even serpents (don't worry they're depicted in the coolest way possible)!
For the guys!!! We've got you too with the hands free freshness from the new kid on the block making waves with her handcrafted leather accessories!!
