It’s that time of year when we start thinking about gifts to give. It’s been a challenging year for so many businesses, but we know Costco and Amazon aren’t hurting. ;) Those are great sources for gifts of course, but this year I decided to spotlight gifts made by small businesses, independent makers, and products that are Made in the USA.
Today’s gift ideas are all ones you can personalize for the recipient. Since these take longer it made sense to feature these ideas first.
Engraved Handwriting Leather Tray – 3 Colors
Modern Pet Portraits
Personalized Christmas Tree Topper
Travel Memories Art
Canvas Makeup Bag
Custom Wood Favorite Lake Map
Monogram Cheese & Crackers Board
Engraved Phone Dock

And another easy gift to make for friends and teachers is a desk calendar. I used my Restless Art print shop’s Succulents Square Set and uploaded the images to create desktop calendars for friends. Artifact Uprising will print a set of 12 different images for a desk calendar with silver or gold foil.
More small business gift ideas coming next week! Stay tuned!
