If you've lost someone you love, the holidays can be downright hard. Maybe there's an empty chair at your table this year. Maybe there are traditions that won't be carried down after the loss in your family. Maybe there was supposed to be a baby but you carry them in your heart and not your arms.
We created this line of gifts specifically for those of you who ache at the holidays. You matter and your heartache matters and the love in your heart matters. We hope that these gifts can help remind you that you are loved and remembered.
Our new line of ceramic bells were handmade by Molly Hatch and honor the love, hope, and memory you hold. The bells feature plant dyed silk ribbon and a handmade ceramic bead. All part of our commitment to supporting other small, women owned shops.
And when you started asking us for our ornament from 2015, we knew we just had to bring it back! Each ornament is made of real birch wood and is then hand painted by yours truly (Denise) here at laurelbox.
We also designed a second ornament with a rewritten hymn to remember the ache in your heart while also clinging to the hope of our King at Christmas. Each linen ornament is hand sewn and embellished with gold beading and embroidery work. They're even more beautiful in person.
And finally, we absolutely love this holiday wall decor hanging created specifically to display your ornament collection. It's such a precious way to commemorate your loved ones, and we happen to be pretty obsessed with macrame these days. Each was handmade by Elizabeth McTague just for laurelbox.
We hope you love the new line as much as we do! Tell us your favorite piece below!
