Last year when Covid hit small businesses hard, I put together a gift guide as a small way to give back to all the local businesses I love. I thought we would be back to normal by now, but as many of you know, tons small businesses are still struggling in the wake of the pandemic. Plus, with trouble at the ports and shipping, shopping local is the way to go! So this is my second annual Small Business Gift Guide! Instead of spending money with large retailers, let’s give back to the mom and pop shops. The “little guys.” The people who will do a happy dance with each order. Our community.
Literally every picture Rachael posts of her items makes my heart happy. You can also do custom orders through her instagram!
