We asked, and you answered! Thanks to all of your incredible feedback and recommendations on Instagram, we were able to curate the ultimate women-owned-small-business gift guide by region. We made sure all shops were accessible online and offered thoughtful, beautiful wares. So definitely explore not just the over 50 items we curated (this is just Volume 1, more to come!), but each of these small shops in all their goodness. There are many treasures to be discovered. 

And as our friend Fanny Singer reminded us, "This is a time to imagine the type of world that exists in the future. What kinds of businesses do you want to still exist? And support those types of businesses that nurture the values you believe in."

We hope the makers and small shops featured here inspire your approach to shopping, this season and beyond.
