6 Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas

Updated: Aug 17, 2019

Handmade gifts are fun to make and give. Unfortunately, we don't always have time, and let's be honest, or the patience needed to make thoughtful gifts. The local artisans of Julian have your back. Here are six wonderful handmade gifts made in Julian, CA you could gift this year. Mountain Made Candles

Mountain Made is a small company that hand-pours candles, by yours truly, in true-to-life aromas. Each candle burns for about 20 hours. The cute travel tins make for great stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, and are a great way to freshen up your home for a holiday party.

Caleb Lewis Art

Local Artists Caleb Lewis has been making art using a variety of media. His most recent adventure is painting on canvas and other unique backdrops such as an old hand saw. You can find Caleb’s latest pieces at Golden Coast Mead’s Julian location.

Add Joy Products

Crow and Lilac is a wonderful boutique that is well known for their handmade vegan body care line, Add Joy Products. You can buy individual items or sign up for their gift club to receive handmade goodies right to your door (or, in this case, your friends/family members 'door) four times a month.

Taylor Wood Knives

Men can be a bit harder to shop for, but we have got your back! Taylor Wood makes quality knives right here in Julian. This is a great one-of-a-kind gift option for the men in your life. Available at the Julian Station. Quilts and More

Quilts have always been a wonderful gift. Nothing says winter quite like curling up on the couch next to the fire with a beautiful quilt. Quilts and More is an adorable shop packed full of quilted items that would make wonderful gifts this holiday season. Merdo Acres

Merdo Acres specializes in custom wood design projects. Their cutting boards are constructed out of the quality woods by a husband and wife team, right here in our local mountains. They do a fantastic job at keeping their work decorative and functional. These one-of-a-kind pieces make a great gift for both genders, all ages, and any relation. Find them on Facebook or in Golden Coast Mead’s Julian location

Thank you for shopping small this holiday season. Merry Christmas!
