Of course I believe it’s important to shop all year round — when you can. I completely understand that sometimes it’s just not in the budget to shop small for every purchase you make, and I’m right there too. But, I do think that we can make the choice to shop small for several occasions. Choosing to make purchases from small business is easy when you’ve got a gift you’d like to buy (holiday gifts, birthdays, housewarming, or new babies). Choosing to spend your money with a small business can help a community grow, help a dream stay alive, encourage creativity and support the growth of a new idea or way of thinking about something.
Below I’ve included some inspiration and links to a variety of companies where you can shop small for anyone on your list. This list hits all price ranges for different budgets. Several of these are my small business owning friends who are all amazing, and others are just some brands that I think are great! Of course there are many other small businesses who I think are awesome, but I wanted this link to be easy to navigate and useful.
I hope you find some inspiration here! Wishing you all a lovely holiday season.
