Julia started Foreversonflowersandmore after she lost her oldest son. To cope with the loss, she began to create these gorgeous decor pieces. Sunflowers were her son's favourite, and he continues to inspire Julia every day.

So, I typically only feature Canadian businesses in these gift guides, but I had to make an exception for Christi from Hugs An Stitches! Located in Wisconsin, her shop caters to lovers of modern and stylish knit- and crochet-wear that's well crafted. With a wide range of products, I'm sure you can find a suitable gift for your friend or significant other.

I especially love Christi's crochet pumpkin planner clips. If your fall lover is also into planning and bullet journaling, this will be a fantastic gift! Christi also makes these versatile cloths that are perfect for doing the dishes or washing your face. I also appreciate Christi's dedication to the #HatNotHate initiative for October's Bully Prevention Month!

5. Handmade Cards and Bookmarks

All of the gifts that I mentioned above are great if you know the recipient of your gift. But, what if it's a budding friendship and you don't know them that well? In that case, I highly suggest giving them a handmade card, especially if it's one of mine! All cards at Thoughtfully Handmade are blank inside so you can write a personal, thoughtful message. I have cards for almost every occasion, but I'm showcasing three that would suit an autumn lover the best.

Even if you do know the recipient well, a handmade card is also great when paired with any of the products from Foreversonflowersandmore, FuzzyCakes Knitwear, Meyari Jewelry or Hugs An Stitches. I also make bookmarks, so if your friend or significant other loves to read, they are also a great gift option!
