Go beyond the oontz oontz of house music in Miami Beach to the graffiti-decked Wynwood Arts District and find a thriving contemporary art scene. You'll also find one of our favorite Sunshine State spots: Wynwood Letterpress—aka Miami paper paradise. Carrying in-house designs as well as knickknacks from local makers, the perfectly put-together shop is something you’d want in every neighborhood. Owner and founder Bridget Dadd is back this year with a new curation of lovely gifts made in-state (we snuck in a couple of our favorites too). Beaches, Disney World, Art Basel, and excellent letterpress stationery—what doesn’t Florida have?
“Founded 20 years ago, this Brazilian ready-to-wear brand has expanded into the US market setting up their headquarters in Miami. Their designs are a cool mix of the cultural connections between Brazil and Miami – case in point with these awesome custom denim jackets!”
SxS: “It’s near impossible to not love Rifle Paper’s distinctive, adorable illustrations. We’re gifting this phone case to all our floral-loving friends, so they can carry feel-good vibes with them wherever they go.”
"Danielle Conte, the owner of Conscious Coconut, has really created magic with her cold-pressed coconut oil that comes packaged in an amazing little 3.4 oz travel-ready tube. For every purchase, a child is given a meal through a partnership with Feeding America. They also work directly with their farmers and suppliers, supporting fair trade practices from beginning to end."
SxS: “We’ve been big fans of Yield for years. They offer a ton of well-designed items from bags to jewelry, but their home goods are especially strong. We love this sleek, bone-white French press that you’ll definitely never want to tuck away.”
“I met the lady founders of LCT while working together on a local fashion charity event and have since been smitten with their brand. It’s so authentically Miami that even the descriptions of each tea nod to various neighborhoods and “Miami-isms” like stealing your neighbor’s mangos. Plus while shopping online, if you like the vibe of one of the tea descriptions there is a custom playlist you can download while sipping that tea.”
“Before you assume these are overly costly for ice pops – they’re really not. If you’re into super fresh and seasonal Florida ingredients that are not full of gross fake sugars and chemicals, they ship free to your door. We’ve been slurping “Champagne Mango” “Peachy Peach” and “Cucumber Mint” amongst others all summer long.”
“This is the happiest little stapler in all the land. And the very first product in our desktop accessory line—which makes us extra happy! These little cuties come with 1000 staples and are sure to provide you a better day that Milton ever had in Office Space.”
“Tanya Gruenberg is an industrial designer turned jewelry maker with an incredible eye for amazing, inspired pieces. These little people studs are actually 3D scans of her and her twin brother! And she manufactures everything on Miami’s historic Flagler Avenue in Downtown Miami.”
