SDMB’S Favorite Things 2016 :: Shop Local Businesses


{Disclosure: This list is brought to you by our line-up of favorite local brands. Every last one of these recommendations are truly favorites of San Diego Moms Blog, and we personally solicited all companies for inclusion.}


It’s here! This list of featured local items and businesses is truly one of our favorite features this year.

We gathered at our team Christmas party where we had some fun together, exchanging gifts and cookies, and we talked about what’s to come for 2017. We also shared a few of our favorite local brands!

It took a few months scouring social media and local vendors to connect with some of these businesses. Featuring local items from those businesses that we find inspiring is part of SDMB’s mission in building relationships and community. I wanted to gift my team with a few things because they worked so hard in 2016. Every business is local, mom owned and these are our three favorites this year:

Sharp Design Creations


These absolutely adorable succulent holders were made by Sharp Design Creations. We all swooned over the cuteness and couldn’t decide which one we wanted to take home! Check out her Instagram and feel free to email her: [email protected] for customizations. Stephanie customized these succulent holders just for the SDMB team! With motivational saying and super cute forest creatures, these are the PERFECT gift.


nbt threads favorite things favorite things

You might have noticed the #momlife trend happening in these perfect tanks and tees made by NBTThreads. Not only are these sayings right on point, but both the flowy tanks and v-neck tees are amazingly soft. We got sent a variety of sizes and sayings on tanks and tees for the whole team! It was super fun to pick out the shirt with a saying that fit our lifestyle of #momlife the best. These are the toss-something-on-to-run-errands-with-a-messy-bun-and-still-look-amazing type of shirts! NBTThreads is a very popular, and local, mom run business. I recently met the owner at a craft fair, and she is such an amazing and hard working woman! Her Instagram has a ridiculous following and for good reason. Her product is perfect and my tank is quickly becoming my favorite one to wear.


favorite things noniko


Noniko is a locally mom run business in San Diego. She has an amazing natural, aluminum and paraben free deodorant that actually works! Noniko deodorant is a healthy alternative for your beauty and personal care routine. Each of our team members got a sample to try, and so far the feedback is great. You can check out her facebook for more info, and you can order right through Amazon


All these products are perfect gifts for the mom, woman, sister, friend in your life. Consider supporting local as you shop for the holidays this year, and check out these amazing businesses!
