14 Small Businesses Our Team is Shopping This Holiday Season

Here at High Moon Studio, we take supporting female founders and modern CEOs very seriously. Our team is constantly finding the latest & greatest, and looking for the next best thing, which let’s be honest – shopping small is way more fun! The gifts are more unique, the packaging is intentional and it always feels much more personalized than a big box store. So whether you’re shopping for yourself or trying to find a trendy AF gift for that person who seems to have it all, we hope this inspires you to support small businesses this holiday season.


Happy shopping, friends!

Having hand creams all over your house is a must for feeling luxe 24/7. The Feelist is one of our recent faves because the products are both good quality and pretty to look at. The CBD cream is our obsession!

If you’re looking for chic and minimal closet staples, Clyque The Label is your next best friend. Think: that model off duty look, except you can get it in under 5 minutes. Their bodysuits and dresses are beyond flattering – Alex just purchased the Felicia bodysuit to add to her collection.

We’re not kidding when we say these baked goods taste better than any we’ve ever had. They’re also vegan, refined sugar free, gluten free, etc (could you ask for anything better?!) Everyone we’ve introduced them to have said they’re the best cookie they’ve ever had. Get some shipped to yourself for the holidays and thank us later.

Calling all entrepreneurs – craft your own magnetic brand using the Brand Bible magazine + workbook. We might be biased, but this is the ultimate product and holiday gift for all business owners! We love this step-by-step instruction manual and use it to craft cult brands using our High Moon Method –– and now you can do so too.

The founder of this AMAZING pottery shop is from Alex’s home state of WI and has an Instagram feed that is to die for. Her mugs are Alex’s favorite –– the designs are released in drops so it’s one-of-a-kind, small batch work. Alex has two of her pieces and they’re her FAVORITE coffee mugs in her collection.

Let’s get lit. This candle brand is the epitome of luxury at home. They describe their candles as “bringing you the five-star hotel experience at home” and we couldn’t agree more. This is the perfect gift for you or a loved one this holiday season!

This brand is one of our best-kept secrets, but we don’t gate-keep our favorites around here because sharing is caring 😉 This brand has the BEST luxury gifts, books and stationery. We love their journals for planning out our big thoughts and dreams –– the Noir Croc Journal is such high quality and makes writing in your journal a luxurious experience.

Naked Zero Matcha is the creamiest and smoothest matcha you will ever taste. This brand is so intentional with the ingredients expertly crafted in Japan for ultimate energy and mood-boosting properties. This matcha launches officially on December 1, but our social media manager Shelby has tried it prior and says it’s her favorite matcha she’s tried to date.

The Wholesome Store is your new go to for all things wellness, ceramics, and clothing. This brand has the CUTEST products that you will love to place anywhere and everywhere around your home. We shop here on a much too regular basis.

Philosophie Love is one of our wellness favorites. The owner of this brand puts the most love and intention into every product. Not only are the products aesthetically pleasing, but they also make your life better, inside and out –– everything is a raw, organic, GF superfood product. We can’t get enough.

Having a planner that helps you get sh*t done is a necessity. This is the planner of all planners –– it has space for weekly reflections, goal setting, self care tracking, an hourly schedule, and so much more. Think: a done for you bullet journal. 11/10 recommend.






This Hot Mess Ice Roller by The Skinny Confidential is nothing short of amazing. If you wake up with a puffy face in the morning, are wanting a morning pick me up, or simply want vibrant skin, we can’t recommend this product enough.

Who doesn’t want to look like they just got back from a tropical vacation all year round? This tanning lotion smells amazing, doesn’t stain, and is beyond easy to use. Simply rub it on after a shower and wake up looking bronzed AF. You’re welcome.

When it comes to movement and living our best life, we prefer to focus on things that add to our lives and make us feel good. FORM was one of our amazing clients this year and we fell in love with the unique method Sami uses in these workouts. Each workout is short, effective, and makes you feel energized rather than exhausted. Sign us up x100.
