As we are approaching Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite small businesses. Let’s support them for your holiday gift giving needs. I am highlighting my favorite products from their companies in my first annual Small Business Holiday Gift Guide. You may be familiar with my annual North Carolina gift guides and I am excited to incorporate this one to celebrate small businesses from around the country as well!
10 Small Businesses to Shop this Holiday Season
Simple Times Mixers is based in Columbus, OH and has this great holiday mixer 3-pack that features the following flavors: Blackberry Lemonade, Cranberry Apple Cider Mule, & Pear Rosemary Mule. This would make a great hostess gifts or a set for your favorite mixologist. I have been using the blackberry lemonade mixer with soda water for an afternoon treat. Hotel Lobby Candle is such a great candle company founded by a husband and wife duo who split their time between Brooklyn and Miami. Their Holiday candle is the perfect scent and their packaging is so charming! Hunter Blake Designs is a beautiful earring company out of Nashville, TN where two friends design statement earrings. The pair of black onyx earrings is so pretty and are perfect for the holiday season and beyond!
I absolutely adore my Estelle Colored Glass champagne coupes in iridescent glass. Estelle Colored Glass is based in Charleston, SC and makes the most beautiful glassware in stunning shades. There is a store that I always have to stop in when we’re in New York City is Fishs Eddy and they did a great collaboration with West Elm. I picked up a NYC themed mug and it would make a great gift for your friend who is as obsessed with NYC as I am. For your friend that loves reading, get them this custom ornament from Bryant, AR that highlights all the books they read this year.

We Dream in Colour is such a unique earring brand based in Essex, MA. This pair of earrings is absolutely stunning and a conversation starter. One of my favorite purchases has been this Luv Scrub mesh body exfoliator, made in Brooklyn, NY. You’ll never use another loofah again! This would be a great gift for a favorite things party or in a stocking. This pair of pajama bottoms by Jennifer Vallez based out of Connecticut. I love her artwork so be sure to check out her website for more. For your loved one who is obsessed with paper products, a custom notebook or notepad from A Thing Created is the way to go! Her work is outstanding and so unique.
