2022 small business holiday gift guide

2022 small business holiday gift guide

With the holidays rapidly approaching - I wanted to find a way to support my friends who own small businesses in some way. So I decided to revive my old blog to create this small business gift guide for the holiday season!

I personally always aim to shop small as often as I can - but when it’s crunch time to order my holiday gifts - I can never seem to find what I need. In the last few years, handmade Etsy sellers have been buried by mass produced junk, social media platforms have limited the reach of small businesses and Amazon certainly doesn’t need any more of our hard earned cash.

SO - here’s a list of small businesses that you can support this season instead (and the deals they are offering!!). These are all my friends… so I know how hard they work and how much every single order means to them. Happy Shopping!
