Maryville Gifts for Christmas

Maryville Gifts for Christmas at Dandylions!

What to Gift

Everyone is starting to make their Christmas lists and starting to shop. This is not the year of re-gifting! NO, this year is the year we all go into the store knowing what to get our friends and family. This is the year we know exactly what to ask for.
Some of my favorite go to gifts are clothes. What girl on this earth doesn’t like clothes. They are hard to come by. So when you have no idea what to ask for or what to get your friend for Christmas you can never go wrong with a sweater. You don’t want to offend them with the size you choose. In this case, you can buy an over-sized sweater. This way no hurt feelings and you bought them their dream cozy sweater.
Another gift you can never go wrong with are with fuzzy socks or a candle. You can never have enough of either. Fuzzy socks are a girls best friend. Recently some companies have been making them with aloe in them or grips on the bottoms. Also, candles aren’t something you would buy for yourself. Either asking for them or gifting them you can never go wrong. A holiday scent is always a fun way to stick to the holiday theme as well.

Dandy Lions is your one stop shop!

These are a few simple ideas on which direction you can take when deciding what to gift this Christmas. There is no way you could go wrong with any of these few options. No matter what you ask for or what you gift, Christmas is still the best time of the year. Being around friends and family is a gift in itself, so get excited the holiday season is creeping up fast!
Dandylions in Maryville is your one stop shop for Christmas this year. We have a little bit of something for everyone! Come see us!

Dandy Lions brings Fall Favorites to Maryville

Dandy Lions brings fall to Maryville, and we could not be more excited to share! Today as we feel the breezy air and unload some of our new shipments, we can’t help but be eager beavers for fall-time just around the corner! Some of the most memorable and coziest moments in life happen during this time of year, and Dandy Lions wants to help you make the most of your season.

Dandy Lions brings Fall to your home

Seasonal nesting creates a feeling of peace, contentment, and happiness. Neutral spaces with pops of color are especially charming as the contrast reveals the perfect mix of clean and vibrant. Personal style extends past what you wear; personal style is a piece of your home, too. If you are a festive person, you will want to decorate with the seasons and show off your creative side!

A Home Should Always Be Two Things: Fresh & Fabulous

This year Dandy Lions has brought in some seriously awesome fall pieces! One thing we love is a beautiful wreath. A wreath is like makeup – it sets the tone for the whole house! Your body and your home is your temple, and you must decorate it.

Another decorative piece that can put your home into a total fall frenzy is our mini pumpkin placeholders! These baby pumpkins give us total PSL feelings. I mean, what better way to cozy up for the season than with a PSL, blanket, and complete fall decor in your home?

Come by Dandy Lions and shop all your Fall with us!

Nesting with Dandy Lions- A Guide to Understanding

What Does Nesting Mean?

“Nesting” in the home describes our inner desire to make our home our own, utilizing creative personal style and design ideas. Dandy Lions believes that every home should feel like a cozy retreat that has been carefully designed one piece at a time. We incorporate antique trinkets to add depth and character to spaces. Nesting can range anything from funky, colorful furniture accent pieces to a small, vintage candle lingering in the corner. At Dandy Lions, we believe in the subtleties in life and design. We believe our ability to nest and incorporate a personal touch into our spaces matters.

How Can Dandy Lions Help You Nest?

We offere a wide array of unique products that serve as nesting “must have’s” here at Dandy Lions! We carry everything from fun, fresh neutral pillows to small, decorative and distinct drink coasters. Our hope is to be able to offer every person who comes in to visit Dandy Lions be able to find something fresh, fabulous, and timeless in our unique crafty boutique.

Below are a few quick tips to helping you turn your space into a sanctuary!

Showcase while Storing:

Group sets of items you’ve hoarded collected to show them off—and save space along the way. Stack coffee table books and back issues of magazines. Use mason jars and glass vases to display petite trinkets.

Pay Attention to the Walls

Frame pictures and hang scarves or a colorful hat or two.

Engage the Other Senses

Light a candle! Dandy Lions carries a wide array of candles to choose from. Pick one that has a scent that sets the tone of the room you are working within! Keep prettily wrapped candies in an intricate statement bowl on your dining room or kitchen table.

The next time you visit Dandy Lions, ask one of our girls to help you “nest“!

Handwritten Letters in 2017

What an awesome goal for 2017!  Let’s add a personal touch into our friends and families lives.  A text, phone call, or e-mail just isn’t as sweet or thoughtful as a beautiful handwritten note.

At Dandy Lions, it all started with our beautiful, unique stationary.

Habits of a Thoughtful Gift Giver

‘Tis the season for giving.  Looking to get in touch with your generous side? Embrace these habits of a truly thoughtful gift giver.

The thoughtful gift giver plans ahead of time.

Considerate gift giving is as much about planning as it is about how well you know the person.  What are there interests?  What is their personality like?  Get to know the wants as well as the needs of those you are buying for.

Thoughtful gift givers don’t focus on cost.

The practice of thoughtful giving offers a wealth of benefits, but that doesn’t mean givers should focus on big price tags. In fact, thoughtful gift givers should not dwell on the cost of presents.  Isn’t compassion what this time of year is all about? So don’t worry if you don’t have a lot to spend. Instead, get creative.

They make gifts personal.

Gifting is an opportunity to let a person know how much you appreciate and love them, and it also shows how well you know them.

Take time to listen to people.  Remember the little things.

And they enjoy giving more than receiving.

Nothing beats the feeling of giving a gift.   Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbra found that people would rather take on costs themselves in order to help others.


Here at Dandy Lions, we want to help you be the perfect gift giver this year, and in the years to come!  Stop by and see what we have to offer to you, and the special people in your life!
