The Shop Small Gift Guide

I am going to start this blog post by stating the obvious— SMALL BUSINESSES NEED YOUR SUPPORT! Now more than EVER. I am shocked when people seem surprised that so many small businesses are closing during this global pandemic. If you aren’t supporting your local community, what do you expect?

On a brighter note— I curated the perfect gift guide, so you can get your loved one, bestie, or secret shopper the perfect gift while also supporting local. Most businesses are located in Philly, but I also branched out a little bit because everyone could use some extra love these days! There is no specific order to these shops— they are all so special and unique in their own way!

I know most people are balling on a budget around the holiday season, so I tried to keep that in mind while putting together this gift guide. I included everything from stocking stuffers, to cozy knits, and local love decor. Try not to shop too much for yourself. *wink, wink*
