We're kicking off the first gift guide of 2020 by rounding up gifts from 29 incredible small businesses that you have to check out this holiday season! As someone who comes from a big family of small business owners, I have always loved supporting other small businesses. The pandemic has taken a toll on small businesses this year and if you can, I highly encourage you to shop small this holiday season. 

Personally, I think there is something so special about gifting something handmade with love to someone and there are so many talented individuals out there to shop from. I have rounded a few of my small business picks in this post, but I'll be sure to continue to share more on my Facebook and Instagram through the holiday season as well.
