We feel good when spending our hard earned dollars supporting small business! That’s why we love to shop handmade for the holiday season! Check out our gift guide with 40 great gift ideas for everyone on your list!
Handmade gifts are pretty much my favorite thing ever. The gifts that I give usually end up being a bit of a mixed bag– some I make myself, some I buy from a handmade artist and some I buy from the store. Having been an entrepreneur since I was 24 years old, I know how important it is to support small businesses.
Here’s a few reasons I think it’s so important to support small/handmade businesses:
-Every time you make a purchase from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance.
-You are supporting not only a real person and their family, but also that person’s creative journey.
-A whole lot of love is poured into handmade items, and I like to think that love is passed along to the person who receives it.
-When you shop handmade you are encouraging more creativity to be brought into the world– and that’s such a good thing!
-The item you purchase is one of a kind and unique. The chances of the recipient receiving duplicates of the item are slim to none.
-It gives you great karma. 🙂
I visited my favorite online handmade marketplace– Etsy, and created a collection of gifts that I would love to give (and receive) this holiday season. I hope that you like them!
