Best Shop Small Gift Guide

Hello loves. I hope you find yourself in the midst of good holiday cheer. Today I feature a Shop Small Gift guide- a few outstanding items from small retailers.

“Shop Small” is a mantra that you hear from me often . Shopping small and locally, when possible, is a way to vote with our dollars and support the little guys, and gals. I will try to do a few of these in the next two weeks.

Warning, in advance- the last item in my shop small gift guide is a quirky one… and this particular one is for its quirky appeal, but it is too expensive and out there to recommend.
