Unique Gift Ideas : Shop Small

I used to be that person that would have my Christmas shopping done before November hit. It was a huge stress relief to not have to worry about shopping. This year is a little different as November is almost over and I have not bought one gift yet! I'm kind of freaking out a little inside. 

Luckily, this year I have chosen to shop small.  By small, I don't mean just buying a few things, I'm talking supporting small businesses. As a small business owner myself, I know how important it is to shop small and support small business owners. I also am a huge sucker for personalized and unique gifts so I wanted to share some unique shops who take pride in their work and really love what they do!
