Looking for a local gift for one of the ladies in your life? This list includes some of our favorite brands and businesses local to Boston, with products perfect for HER.
Little Words Project was founded by Adriana Carrig (a mom herself!) with the intention to inspire and encourage people to be kind to themselves and then pay that kindness forward, one bracelet at a time. We had the opportunity to meet Adriana at her spring pop up at The Current, and we absolutely love her team and her message.
These beautiful bracelets, with uplifting messages and inspiring words, are the perfect gift for a mama who might need some encouragement or one who just needs a reminder of how great she is.
Visit Little Words Project online or at their permanent storefront in the Seaport!

Founded in 2014 by fitness instructor Kelly Brabants, Booty by Brabants is a Boston-based company known for empowering women through its inclusive, ethically made-in-Brazil athleisure that follows a one-size approach and entirely removes numbers from the shopping experience. The brand’s durable collection of signature workout-approved pieces, including leggings, shorts, tops, and jackets, is designed to flatter a wide variety of body types while promoting comfort and confidence from the inside out.
Booty by Brabants sells textured and non-textured materials but is known for signature textured styles like Croco Skin™, original, and chrome. Beyond trends that come and go, this brand stands by its high-quality, textured fabrics because of their ability to uniquely conceal imperfections, mold to curves, and fit through every stage of life from the normal weight fluctuations every woman experiences to pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond. All pieces are created to last hundreds of wears without fading or pilling, retaining elasticity unlike many other leggings on the market today. All workout-approved sets are squat-proof and stay in place while in motion. Not only does Booty by Brabants have the perfect gift for every woman on your list, the brand is also loved for its expanding BBB KIDS collection featuring matching, comfortable activewear sets designed to grow with your minis.
To make a purchase, visit the Booty by Brabants site or head to the MA-based BBB store location closest to you: MarketStreet Lynnfield, Legacy Place in Dedham, or Watertown’s Arsenal Yards.
