We’re all about showing love in the time of COVID-19. Local makers and artisans are churning out a slew of inventive, fun creations for those looking to make a lasting impact from a safe distance. Here are a few of our favorite gift ideas.
Ilthy’s Quarantined Chief Thousand Snapback Cap, $30
Quarantine, but make it fashion. This hat is a callback to Ilthy’s sold-out original design drawing inspiration from Blinky, the three-eyed mutated fish on The Simpsons. While there may not yet be a Major League Baseball season ahead of us, this hat is a reminder that we must rally together by staying inside. ilthy.com
Furbish and Fire’s Six Feet Closer Candles, $25
Turn down the lights, kick back and relax with these socially distant candles. There are 23 scents to choose from including apple bourbon, lemon eucalyptus and sweet orange chili pepper. If you’re feeling creative, you can customize your message on the label or stick with the original: “I can’t wait to be six feet closer to you.” furbishandfire.com
Oceanne Jewelry’s Favorite Things Heart Necklace, $34
Naps, avocado toast and coffee: these are just some of our favorite things, but when Oceanne Jewelry etches our obsessions into a small brass heart charm on a 16-karat gold chain, it becomes a permanent reminder of all the things we hold near and dear. Personally, we stan the Taco Belle necklace for its charm and wit. oceanne.net
