22 unique gift ideas #ShopSmall

Samantha Dickey

Shopping small and local means your gift-giving will be unique and rare, and most appreciated by your Loves.

Often times, designer artisans have gifts that inspire & delight because they are hand crafted and one-of-a-kind.  

When you shop with local vendors, you can give items that are made regionally and reflect the best your town or city has to offer.

Be on the lookout for local Craft Fairs, Farmer's Markets, Holiday Shoppes at schools and churches, stores in your local Downtown Shopping District/Main Street, Etsy, and other Online Marketplaces.  

Are you on Facebook?  Your friends and neighbors may have small businesses, and sometimes they'll share what they have on their feeds.  Check out their business pages and websites.  Sometimes they'll gift wrap, deliver, and even create something custom for you.

Think outside the run-of-the-mill gift box for ideas.  Jams, jellies, local fresh produce, honey, local designer bracelets, handmade candles, spa and beauty products made with herbs from the area (hint hint!)
