Welcome to The Lily’s 2019 gift guide. Here, you’ll find 35 women-made gift ideas for everyone in your life, from the enthusiastic dog-owner to the aspiring mixologist. This year, we’ve organized products according to various spaces in the home: the pantry, bar, living room, closet and bathroom, plus out of the house.

We spent weeks working like holiday elves — crowdsourcing recommendations from people at The Washington Post, scouring the Internet and taking note of what we love in our own lives. From affordable, striking art prints to a do-it-yourself pickling kit, we put a lot of thought into each item (and thoroughly enjoyed trying all of them before giving our ultimate stamp of approval).

As always, every brand featured here is at least 50 percent women-owned; we’ve also included a tidbit about the woman, or women, behind each product. Many of the products also have order-by dates to ensure they’ll make it to your home by the holidays.

So what are you waiting for? Step inside our gift guide and start exploring.

We can’t do this without you. Do you have recommendations for women-owned companies? Let us know here.
