Thoughtful Gifts for the 2020 Holiday Season

It’s that time of year again! The annual run-around to find the perfect gift. What to get? What to get for who? Will they like it? and so on...

Amidst the endless selection of mass produced products available, it’s hard to find a gift that is personal and thoughtful. Unfortunately this year we get the extra layer of complexity added due to covid. 

We, just like everyone, think twice about entering any store to shop for things that we might need. Our concern over safety has shifted most of our purchasing habits online. In doing so, consider supporting small businesses such as Tolmee.

Tolmee recognizes that small shops need support and opportunity to thrive which is why we, in-turn, only work with small businesses. We strive to collaborate with small scale designers that are socially, ethically, environmentally responsible and who lovingly handcraft their unique products. We are proud and feel honored to bring these products to you.

Browse our selection of fun toys, sustainable fashion accessories and handcrafted jewelry for inspiration and a gift, for anyone on your list, that will truly be one of a kind and a pleasure to receive.

From our Accessories and Bags collection, we have something for everyone!
