The holidays are here! And while some of us are on top of the gift giving... others are still looking for the perfect fit for those we love. I've always been a fan of "shopping small" but now that I own my own small business, I feel even more passionate about supporting small business. Whenever possible, I will opt for the "mom and pop shop" over the big names. If this aligns with your values too, welcome and thank you so much for being here!
In this post, I have put together a list of some of my favorite "gifts for her" and "gifts for him" - many of these could be "gifts for anyone" to make the gift buying process just a little bit easier! While this is a quick round up, I have a few even more in-depth posts for you too (I'll link those below).
While the possibilities are endless for personalized gifting, we do have a few favorites that are great year-round. But they're especially wonderful during the holiday season.
Personalized Gifts for Her
As much as I love personalized display items/decor for a home, having a functional gift that is also personalized is an incredible way to allow a gift to "keep on giving!" This selection is a nice mix of both.
Engraved Cutting Boards:
This might be my absolutely favorite thing to make in the shop because It truly becomes and heirloom within an heirloom.
Personalize this wooden cutting board with an actual handwritten message, recipe, drawing, logo or custom message using a font or custom design. This makes a wonderful gift for any occasion, memorial gift, wedding, cooking gift or for a unique kitchen decor!
Though recommended for decorative purposes, the cutting boards are sealed with a food-grade oil to make safe for food products.
