We are officially one month away from Christmas and this means that you need to start bringing your A-game to finish up your shopping. Although it’s easy to become overwhelmed, don’t be. I am the best gift-giver in all the land. Seriously, the Yoda of gift-giving. And I’ve searched high and low for some of the most amazing, unique, thoughtful, “cry tears of joy”-type shops. Plus, we’ve worked with some of our favorites to bring you exclusive discounts and we’ve made sure to note dates so you don’t miss Santa’s sleigh.
I have an unbelievable amount of admiration and respect for these small businesses. It’s rare to find people that work as hard as these movers & shakers. So this Christmas, shop small. Your gift-givees will be thrilled that you did. If you don’t know where to start, look closer at some of our favorites. The fruits of their labor speak for themselves. Move quickly as some of these shops are cutting off Christmas orders soon!
