The 2020 Guide for Mindful Gifting
It’s 2020 and its been unlike any year in memorable history. It is lovely to think about giving gifts at the end of a year like this one and to think about how our generosity can ripple out into the world and support small makers and artisans dreams. In our opinion, there is no better way to end 2020 than with meaningful and mindful gifts.
In the past Christmas time has felt like a scamble and its been easy to just go buy everything on Amazon but this year feels different. There is an intentionality and a slowness that makes us feel as though the gifts we want to give this year should have great meaning behind them. So whether that means making gifts with your own two hands, buying from small makers, supporting women and BIPOC owned businesses, or keeping your economy as local and regenerative as possible, we have a list of gifts that we think would be perfect for any family member or friend on your list.
