The holiday season is such a beautiful time of the year to spend meaningful moments with friends and family. When It comes to gift giving, I like to choose items that have an overall positive impact. I like to think of a gift as an opportunity promote and support my favorite local businesses. Even more than promotion these every-day items usually spark discussion and reflection with the receivers.

I have hand-picked the items below, mostly locally sourced and made by hand. Practical objects that make everyday life beautiful, and free of waste.

A small thank you that can make a real difference.
