This year, we’re choosing to be intentional in our gift giving. It’s been quite the year and we want our gifts to make an impact.

We love Amazon & the big box stores just as much as all of you, but one of the ways we can choose to be more intentional in our spending this year is by choosing to shop small.

In a year when small businesses have been challenged like never before, here are some of our very favorite small businesses with beautiful products that we can’t wait to gift to our loved ones.

Check out these beloved small businesses to find the perfect gift for the people on your list!

You are worthy of meaningful art, and I would be so honored if the special pieces you decide to invest in would be some of mine!”
