With Turkey Day come and gone, we’re in the final stretch as we approach both Christmas and Hanukkah! But don’t get us wrong, we’re soaking in and savoring as much of this season as possible. As the years go by, we find ourselves extra excited over giving rather than receiving. That being said, today’s shopping “holiday” has us in the spirit more than ever. Giving Tuesday is near and dear to our hearts, especially because we know the impact that conscious shopping can do for communities all around the world. As you check off your nice list, we encourage you to take a peek at some of our favorite gifts that will not only spread holiday cheer but give back to the artisans that handmade them just for you.
