I'm excited to share our latest project, the #SHDHolidayGiftGuide. My idea stems from a couple of places:
- I've connected with so many fabulous creatives and makers over the past year who I want to support and honor and promote;
- Christmas is coming;
- Finding new, fun, local shops is one of my favorite things;
- Etsy buying rocks too; and
- We all love thoughful, hand picked gifts!
In my mind, the project is a win-win-win. What's not to love!?
Here's where you come in - by submitting names for the gift guide! Who are your favorite painters and artists and jewelers? What bakery or local shop is your new hang out? What is this year's best smelling candle, coolest decorative piece, most creative piece of pottery? Comment below with makers and their specific products - or check out our ongoing conversation on Instagram.
I'll be publishing the gift guide on my blog throughout November and will be featuring a few of the shops on Instagram.
I've got a few ideas up my sleeve but want this to be bigger than my corner of the neighborhood. And hey, I need suggestions for gifts, too! Thanks in advance for your input and for making this an opportunity to support small business owners and entrepreneurs everywhere.
