My Ultimate Shop-Small Holiday Gift Guide

December 06 2017

This time of year is magical, wonderful, and particularly easy to get caught up in the must-buy-cheap-shit-now mindset. It's hard to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list, and some people are just downright impossible to shop for. I try to shop small whenever I can, but I know it's not always easy. If nothing seems to fit the bill for that elusive someone, one tip is to opt for gifting an experience, even if it's simply taking them out for dinner. 

Being on both sides of the equation, I can personally attest that buying from a maker or small business is doing two good deeds in one –  a gift for both the maker and your loved one. So in an effort to support my fellow entrepreneurs, here are some of my favorite things from Texas-based small businesses, many of whom I know personally. Happy small-shopping!
