Now that we approach the end of a very difficult 2020 it seems that our holidays this year will be a little different this year

Everyone has had a tough time in 2020 and one of those groups really affected by lockdowns are the small, local businesses. Online shopping has become their way to keep going. So with that in mind let’s shop small with unique independent makers and crafters.

Check out these great gift ideas either for yourself (happy holidays to me!) or your favorite yoga and self care fan.

How fun is this? A little handmade rainbow essential oil diffuser for your home or your car. Just a few drops of oil added to the bead and hang wherever you like. It has to be on show somewhere as it’s too cute to hide away!
