    For the Self-Care Superstar:

    Mudjestic Skincare

    Mudjestic skincare

    Face masks are all the rage right now but with so many on the market, it can be difficult to figure out which one is the best. Mudjestic Skincare is a line of mud products made with volcanic ash and clay found right here in America {and it’s made in Union City!}. Volcanic ash from the Aleutian Mountains in Alaska {aka: bentonite clay} is known to have natural healing qualities and has been used for many years. Mudjestic Mud products will detoxify your skin, leaving it firmer, smoother, and tighter. They also have some soothing essential oils as part of their new product line. Visit their site to see their full line of products.

    Originally created in Brooklyn, Apotheke is a company that believes in the daily luxuries of life. They started just with soap-making and later expanded into candles, diffusers, body care, and skin care.

Shop Apotheke here.

    For the Feminist:

    The Write Stuff JC

    @thewritestuff.jc

    Calling all ladies who are a bit fed up with the status of the current administration, this one is for you. The Write Stuff was founded in Jersey City by two ladies looking for an outlet to express their strong feelings towards a certain someone and make a difference in the crazy world we live in. They hold community letter-writing events along with local artists and activists, addressing the most recent and significant issues. They also have an abundance of really cool pins {above!} and donate a portion of their sales to organizations like Planned Parenthood. Visit their site to find out more about their upcoming events.

    BeeBeeBrooklyn 

    @beebeebrooklyn 

    These unique embroidery pieces come from a tattoo and pin up-loving feminist trying to get her {girl power} message out to the world. She only uses the best cotton and wool threads for her projects, and they are all finished in a wooden hoop. Hang them on your wall or around your neck, as they come in all shapes and sizes. Check out more designs here.

    For the Hoboken {or Jersey City} Girl at Heart:

    Charley and Hudson

    @charleyandhudson 

    Every Hoboken/JC gal needs a little hometown attire in their wardrobe. Charley and Hudson has tons of comfy clothes for babies, kids, and adults that show off their neighborhood pride. These will make the perfect gift for any Hoboken/JC girl or guy {aka all of us here at HobokenGirl ;)}…and they’ll be at our holiday market! Till then, shop Charley and Hudson here.

    Grande Gifts 

    @grandegiftsetsy

    Created by a fellow Hoboken girl, Erin, Grande Gifts is a collection of unique and custom made gifts including tanks, mugs, pillows, ornaments, and of course some Hoboken swag. All of these goodies are handmade and each month a portion of their profits goes to various charities. See more Grande Gifts here.

    For the Fit Girl:

    Lo & Rae Swimwear

    @loandraeswim

    Lo and Rae Swimwear was founded and designed by two Hoboken girls {Lauren and Rachel} who were on a mission to find high quality swimsuits at affordable prices. These suits come in classic styles and fun colors fit for everyone, and lest we remind you, there is no shame in shopping for bathing suits in December {+ they’ll be at our holiday market on the 19th!}. See more suits here .

    WiO Woman Sweatshirt

    @wiowithus

    Not only is Work it Out a great place to get an awesome workout in, but they also have these super cute sweatshirts for sale that embody some serious #GRLPWR. Stop in either of their Hoboken locations for a good sweat and pick up one of these on your way out. Read  more about WiO here {and use code HOBOKENGIRL for $79 for an unlimited month of training}.

    For the “Always Celebrating” Chick:

    Clean Cocktails by Tara Roscioli

    Coming to your from two holistic health coaches, find out how you can celebrate the 5PM hour without all the calories.

    Avoir Le Chic Hand-Painted Veuve Bottles

    Avoir le chic hoboken toile champagne handpainted

    @avoirlechic

    We definitely believe in savoring a moment and so does Olivia of Avoir Le Chic, a NJ native. Olivia hand paints and personalizes champagne bottles as a way of commemorating a celebration — solely on bottles of Veuve {because they’re just too pretty to be drank plain}. These are great for custom gifts and she has gorgeous holiday designs here  — but we can’t forget our Hoboken Toile bottle – custom designed by Olivia herself, which is now available online.

    For the Do-Good Diva:

    Our Whole Heart Jewelry

    @ourwholeheart

    Jewelry from Our Whole Heart is not only the perfect gift for any accessory lover, but also for anyone that likes products with a good story behind them. Danielle, the founder of Our Whole Heart, underwent open heart surgery in 2016 and during her healing time, discovered that she had a love for designing small trinkets like these. They’ll be donating portions of their proceeds to heart organizations. Shop Our Whole Heart here.

    For the Makeup Maven:

    IT Cosmetics

    @itcosmetics

    It Cosmetics is one of the hottest makeup brands out there right now AND its headquarters are in Jersey City. Safe to say, we’re obsessed, and probably because they truly have great products — especially their CC+ Cream which is moisturizing, SPF 50, and has color correcting tint in it. Learn all about IT, see some of their best-selling products, and meet Jamie {the CEO of It Cosmetics} all right here.

    Glamour Dolls Makeup

    @glamourdollsmakeup

    Glamour Dolls Makeup is cruelty-free, vegan, and super affordable, made in North Jersey. Shop eyes, lips, face, brushes and more here.

    Stocking Stuffers

    Container Store

    @thecontainerstore

    Yes, we know that this is not “local” per-say, but life can get pretty crazy…especially around the holidays. This is reason #342 that we are so thankful for The Container Store in Livingston, which just opened up last month. A little extra organization never hurt nobody, especially when the containers are really cute! Storage is the perfect gift for anyone, so head to their North Jersey locale or shop here.

    Washington General Ornaments

    @washingtongeneral

    Washington General is just one of those places where you go in for one thing, and come out with 15 because let’s be honest…it is magical. Of course the store has everything you could possibly want on any given day, but it is even better during the holidays — and this includes their collection of beautiful ornaments.

    There are so many awesome local things to pick up around town and across the area. Not sure where to start? Come to our Hoboken Holiday Market for Charity on December 19th at the W to check out a few of these vendors and more.

     

    Happy gift shopping!
