Small Business Holiday Shopping Guide.

Some years are easier than others when it comes to gift ideas for family and friends — the vast majority of them have very different tastes from mine. This year, both our families have decided to not exchange any presents, and it appears there aren’t going to be many holiday parties or white elephants this month either! And it’s honestly a relief and allows us to focus on each other and the more meaningful aspects of Christmas. But this happens to be the year where I’ve got lots of good gift leads, so go figure! Anyhow, I’m happy to share with you a few of the small business shopping resources I’ve found: fine life co., task new york, elise mclauchlan and mantel portland. Whether you’re shopping for the modernist, the bohemian minimalist, the cocktail lover, whoever in your life, I hope it makes your holidays a little easier. And you can rest easy knowing that the majority of these items are handmade by artisans in the U.S. and Canada!

cheers, ezz.

  1. Thank you so much for including us!!

  2. I love your selections and I would love to be on your radar! If you are in Boston, in the Sowa Art & Design District there is a basement boutique owned by a mother/daughter duo. We are and we sell and promote fair wage/sustainable women’s clothing, jewelry and accessories. We would love to meet you. I am glad you are now on my radar!
