There’s something very wrong with giving the same old standby gift every year … that’s how my mother ended up with 156 elephant statues, with their trunks up for good luck and 58 of those little shoes you buy at the card store.
I’ve been on a quest to buy handmade gifts and it made me realize how much access we have to so many talented and creative people.
The best part of purchasing a gift from a small business (whatever the gift may be) is that I’m really giving two gifts and that makes me feel really good!
I have a shop on Etsy and have found myself spending more time there. Such a fun place filled with amazingly talented people … that are so lovely to work with!
