The gift giving season is officially upon us and when we started to think about all the gifts we need to buy our head spins a little. We love gift giving though and take pride in trying to gift thoughtfully. It gets harder for us to do so when there are crowds and flocks of people shopping at the mall. Which makes it even more reason why you should shop small this holiday season!
When you shop small you are supporting a dream, a family, and supporting your local economy. Give a unique gift to your neighbor, a friend, a teacher, or your family this holiday by buying a gift from a small shop. Most of the time small shops support causes near and dear to their heart's too, so you will be giving a gift that gives back too.
Here are some of our favorite small shops to shop this holiday season:
