greetings GENEROUS GIFT-GIVERS!

If I had to give myself a catchy moniker, I suppose it would be something like “Small Batch Savant” because I love me some small batch goodness, including all of the above gift suggestions. In fact, I own many of the products listed and—those I don’t own are on my wishlist.

Shopping small is so attractive because it brings the expected rush of shopping—whether for yourself or for others—AND it provides a cozy feeling of knowing my dollar is going further because I’m supporting a person whose income directly supports others. Those good feelings only grow when I wear or look at my item and remember the lovely lady who made it for me!

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

We categorize our gift suggestions according to recipient personality because we know how difficult it can be to purchase something for the woman who “has it all.” Many of us are privileged enough not to NEED much of anything! And, yet, the holidays are about generosity and sharing and surprises. Figuring out exactly who you’re buying for, her likes and her lifestyle, can go along way to ensuring your gift is well-received.

A LITTLE BIT Woo-woo

This year, we’ve also added in at least one mystical or magical gift within each category. Women everywhere are becoming attuned to their divine wisdom, which in its simplest form is being able to consult (and trust) yourself on a daily basis. We love oracle cards or tarot decks for these kinds of consultations—and we know your lady friends will fall in love with the ones we’ve chosen to highlight here.

WHEN IN DOUBT…

Some gifts you just can’t go wrong with, and jewelry is one of those. Name me a woman who doesn’t like jewelry and, well, I’ll convert her! Small batch made jewelry is so diverse and multi-faceted; there is literally something for everyone. If you aren’t sure exactly which piece your giftee will love, check the maker’s return policy before buying—just as you would with any other gift. (See, that’s not so hard. Is it??!!)

Thank you friends, for browsing our guide. It means so much to me that you're spending a part of your holiday season hanging out with The Perpetual You!
