I know you know how much I love supporting the little guy and shopping small when it comes to gift buying. With this in mind I’ve created a gift guide that both supports small businesses, crafters and makers AND is a list of what to buy the person in your life that runs their own small business, whether they are a freelancer, blogger, a maker. Make sense?
When you work for yourself motivation can be tough, especially when it’s just you staring at the same four walls each day. I’ve looked for gifts that are fun, give motivation and are all useful. I do feel like I need to put a disclaimer up here before you scroll down, these are more aimed at women, purely because I’m a woman and a small business owner so I’ve kind of gone for things I like!
If at first you don’t succeed mug- Veronica Dearly
This one makes me giggle for sure! I’ve made many mistakes while running my small business, there is a lot of trial and error and you can’t be afraid of failure, as a few misses are inevitable.
