𝓔𝓿𝓮𝓻𝔂 𝔂𝓮𝓪𝓻, no matter what you’re celebrating, the holidays tend to become a period of overindulgence. And we sort of live for it. Indulge in all the candy canes, cheesy holiday rom-coms, and hour long loops of Mariah Carey’s  ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’, as you’d like. We don’t judge. But when it comes to where we’re spending our hard-earned cash, we like to think a bit more carefully about the products we’re putting on our skin, the clothes in our closet, and the quirky, perfectly curated, decor we’re putting in our homes. 

 

As a small business, supporting other growing businesses is something we feel strongly about. We know the trials and tribulations of building something up from nothing, and the satisfaction of seeing it bloom. Shopping small means avoiding mass consumption and investing in something that will last, always made with love and care. It puts money in the pockets of people who really deserve it, and for whom one purchase can make a world of difference.

 

So to celebrate the holidays and offer some inspiration, we’ve compiled a list of some of our must-have gifts (and personal treats) from our favorite small companies. From home decor to unique accessories and sustainable essentials, these purchases are ones you can feel good about making.
