Just Ask Nora's FAVES 22

A Curated Collection of Nora's Favorite Things for the Holidays!


Scrub and Throw

My go-to sponges for the past year, @scrubandthrow are all-purpose natural loofah sponges that come in a 30, 90, or 180-pack. Made in San Diego, CA, these sponges are the perfect gift for the hostess or clean-freak in your life! Simply wet a sponge with hot water, scrub, and dispose. After you are finished, simply dispose and never use a dirty sponge again. Great for the environment and your budget, grab a pack or a bundle (for 33% savings) today!

Spice and Tea Exchange

A one stop shop, @spiceandtea.portsmouthnh is the place to find gourmet gifts, BBQ rubs, and loose-leaf tea. The Spice and Tea Exchange is where I’d recommend shopping for those tricky relatives on your list that you’re not exactly sure what to get them, because you can’t go wrong with their gift sets and gourmet products! Nora’s Faves is a tea gift with a 9 Tin Gift Box tea, Vine Tea Spoon and an Infuser mug--the ideal gifts for new and experienced tea drinkers, or for hosting a winter gathering!


When you visit The Spice & Tea Exchange to shop, or call 603-319-8474 to place your order, share the code NoraFaves10 with the team member assisting you and you will receive 10% off your purchase.

Cotillion Bureau

Stepping into @cotillionbureau is a premium vintage experience where you can find all sorts of one of a kind and completely unique pieces. Cotillion Bureau is a body positive space carrying a range of sizes and clothing for all genders. Open 7 days a week from 11-6 and located at 65 Bow Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, this is Nora’s fave for adding a holiday pizzazz to your wardrobe!

Brainstorm Puzzle Co.

The lovely @brainstormpuzzleco is an extension of @wearebrainstorm a fourteen year old design studio where we sell a line of their own illustrated gifts and goods. Created by a husband & wife duo, Brainstorm Puzzle Co highlights their incredible talent for illustration and design in a way that brings people together. I’m such a fangirl of everything Briana and Jason do and would highly recommend gifting Jigsaw puzzles for indoor adventures inspired by outside things to anyone and everyone on your list!

Flyn Costello

Made in Maine, @flyncostello transforms large format paintings into wearable art in the form of hats, shirts, jackets, prints, cards, and stickers. FLYN’s pieces are humorous, fun and will make any scrooge smile this winter! With endless color options for beanies, totes that are great for any outing, and prints that will spice up any wall, it’s no wonder why FLYN made Nora’s Faves for this year! 


Add a spark of fun in your (or your favorite person's) life, and use code NORA for a free sticker with purchase from the FLYN shop. 


Yam Collective 

There’s nothing like a hand poured small batch coconut wax @yam_collective_ candle made with Phthalate/Paraben-Free Scents to get you in the holiday mood. Made locally in Maine, these candles will make your home smell dreamy all year long. For Nora’s Faves, I would suggest the room & linen mist and travel tins for the college kid in your life, as well as a cement jar candle that is sure to light up your home and heart during the upcoming winter months! Be sure to use code NORA10 for 10% off site-wide through 12/25.


My go-to holiday de-stresser is @hapsy premium CBD On The Go. Female founded in Atlanta, GA, Hapsy products travel as easily with you as your favorite lip balm and can be helpful in relieving anxiety, aiding in sleep and helping you to roll with the punches. Nora’s Faves would not be complete without Hapsy’s Soothe Stick and Daily Drops--the perfect gift for anyone who needs “happiness” in their life! 


Use NORA10 for an additional 10% off their 20% off sale (which you can use code SLEIGH20). We love a double deal! 


Rogue Industries 

Every single @rogueindustries leather goods item is made with sustainability and quality in mind. Made in Standish, Maine, Rogue's leather goods are built for adventure and daily use. Any of their products could make Nora’s Faves, but the Leather Smartphone Clutch is designed to hold all your necessities, including your phone. It is truly my go-to for the woman who wants to hold it all! While you shop use code NORAROGUE20 to get 20% of your  purchase!

The Valentine Room

The @thevalentineroom is a modern rental space in the heart of Dover, NH for photos and events. It’s filled with a few modern pieces with the most gorgeous lighting for whatever type of event or photo experience you need. Choose between membership options or individual rentals. This space is and will forever be one of Nora’s faves. Thank you to Sara and Chuck for letting us borrow the space to shoot, you're the best!
