Leather Cuff Bracelet: A Local Christmas Gift

I'm going to keep this short and sweet today because I'm still enjoying some time off. My mom is in town so I'm going to try to soak up the short time I have with her while she's here. But I had to show off one of my favorite gifts I got this year, this Nickel and Suede bracelet that Aaron got me. We both bought each other a local, KC-sourced gift. This bracelet for me, and some Dark Horse Distillery whiskey for Aaron. (I think mine will last much longer!)

  6. Thanks! I definitely didn't get everything locally, but I really did try to do a lot of local and hand-made (by other people, not me! I wish!) things.

  10. Thanks!! This is the first time I've taken a full week off since I was off on maternity leave... I needed a break!! :)
    And I have to admit that I picked it out (along with lots of other things so I'd still be surprised) and said I really liked it... But I'm glad that's the one he bought, it was my favorite!

  15. That's such a great idea for a gift exchange! My Mum owns a small business and shipping costs are super expensive, so I know how much she appreciates local buyers! I love the way you styled it!
