The 2020 holiday gift guide includes presents for the entire family as well as tasteful additions to the home and kitchen.
It’s the season of giving! My 2020 gift guide is here and it includes a gift for everyone on your list (even your pet!). I took extra care to include products that are from small businesses this year. Now more than ever do they need our support. I was stunned by how many amazing handmade gifts I found. Browse through my favorites below and remember you’re supporting a small business if you decide to purchase one of these gifts!

Featured gift: Black-owned business xN Studio sells unique salad servers made of olive wood and bone inlay. A portion of this sale will go toward scholarships and campus upgrades at Suubi Orphanage and Primary school in Uganda.
