Truth be told, we are not about accumulating more stuff. We prefer giving and receiving of experiences, handmade items, and upcycled (well-loved) goods. That being said, we totally understand the joy that comes with giving (and receiving gifts). AND, we know (and love) that some of you may have procrastinated up until now. So with that being said, you probably have until tomorrow to order on Amazon to get your gift to the recipient before Christmas. And if you’re at a loss for ideas, we thought we’d share a few of our top picks. Oh, and OF COURSE we support local, small businesses and if you have the resources to spread the love locally, we highly encourage you to do so.
Enjoy and don’t stress about it. If finances are tight, DO NOT put yourself in debt just to spend money on a material gift. We’ve also listed ideas that won’t cost you anything.
