gift guide // small businesses to shop this season

I am so excited for today’s blog post. A gift guide to small businesses to shop this season!

It’s no secret that the importance of shopping small has become paramount this year… now, more than ever. I’m convinced our world would be far less beautiful without the uniqueness, creativity, and lovelinesses small businesses bring us!

This post consists of nearly fifty small businesses I personally love, businesses I know you’ll fall in love with, too. From bag companies to custom fishing lures to the best hot sauce you’ll ever have and more, there’s something for everyone on your list!

I hope to make a few introductions to you today. Enjoy!

Love from the Sunshine State,
