Cherry Street Pier Stocking Stuffers: Amazing Gifts Can Come In Small Packages 

Seasonal shopping at the Pier is the perfect way to find pocket-sized items to add pizzazz to a holiday card or place in a stocking in need of stuffing. Here are our picks for the perfect pint-sized gifts that pack a punch:

  • Yellow and Black Map Philly 18X18 Pillow Case ($38) by Ana Thorne. Handmade with cotton canvas on the front and super soft fleece on the back. Wash on a delicate setting. Easy to fold. This item is no longer available, but Ana has other items we love like this tote, this hoodie, and this magnet.
  • Aloe Vera Body Butter ($27)  by Nyambi Naturals. Made with a touch of coconut oil, aloe, and a drop of shea butter infused with a nourishing blend of homegrown herbs to relieve dry skin.
  • The Key Lime Cactus Patch ($30) by Cassie Jones. Each patch is drawn on a tablet, printed onto fabric, and stitched onto a backing that is one layer fluff, and one layer felt. The excess fabric is cut away, and a backing is added (backing color may vary). Then it’s cut down to a cute little shape. Perfect for sewing on your favorite items.
