In this crazy, disconnected world of ours the holidays need to have new meaning. And contrary to every billboard and commercial you are likely seeing lately, the “reason for the season” isn’t simply buying things: its about connection. We spend money this time of year to buy gifts to celebrate the people in our lives. To make them feel seen and appreciated. To create connection.

It matters what you buy because your money represents support.

Support for ideas, for areas of interest, and also for the people who made the things you are gifting. It’s a vote of confidence in every direction as you use your resources to share something with someone you care about. This year, while you are showing someone you love that they matter, why not shop small and show an artist or maker that they matter too?!

This is a list of some of our favorite items to help you shop small and love big!
