What I'm Loving: Small Business Saturday Gift Guide
It's Black Friday! While we will be busy today on social media sharing favorite deals, consider doing some of your holiday shopping tomorrow at small businesses during Small Business Saturday!
Some of our favorites that we shop year-round include:
1Canoe2 - Artistic paper goods, accessories and gift items; woman-owned and located in the Midwest. Right now, they are offering Free Shipping for purchases over $50, and 30% off using code LASTSALE21.
Bannor Toys - This shop is my go-to for personalized, handmade baby gifts.
Needlepoint/Yarn Shops - Are you a crafter or are you shopping for one? Visit your local needlepoint or yarn shop on Saturday. Two of our favorites are The Needlepoint Clubhouse and The Wool & The Floss.
Local Bookstores - Small bookstores bring in authors, host book clubs and readings and often have signed books (which make great gifts)! Hint - sometimes authors will share their local bookstores on social media profiles if you're looking for a signed copy.
Spa/Salon Services - Locally-owned spas, blow dry bars and nail salons offer gift cards, which are thoughtful gifts for anyone on your list.
Holiday Cheer - Gifting holiday cheer from a local winery, distillery or micro brewery make for unique and fun gifts for family and friends.
Etsy - We love shopping Etsy to support artisans and purchase unique handmade gifts. Here are a few we can happily recommend:
Wild Oak Stickers - Vinyl stickers with clever sayings that would make for great stocking stuffers!
GemsLittleCo - Have a teen or tween in your family? These are great, inexpensive scrunchies that ship free! Another great stocking stuffer.
topographia - Gorgeous prints featuring topographic maps of memorable destinations. These are wonderful gifts for travelers.
