Support Small Businesses With These Great Holiday Gifts

Support Small Businesses With These Great Holiday Gifts

Lead image via @shoptenzo 

While many people lose their minds over big business' Black Friday deals, we tend to prefer to do our shopping the following day, otherwise known as Small Business Saturday. Because so many people we admire are independent designers and makers (see: basically every post we've ever done), it's super important that we support their efforts. And the best way we can think to do just that is choosing to spend our money on them instead of giving it to huge corporations. It keeps their businesses going, but it also helps us choose totally unique, thoughtfully made gifts for our loved ones. That said, we've chosen a handful of cool pieces to give the various people on your list this year, and they're all from small businesses—some of which are even offering special deals in honor of Small Business Saturday! Scan through our guide and keep checking back as we get closer to the holiday, since we plan to add on as we find more beautiful indie goods (and as we remember other people we still need to shop for!).
