Handmade Gift Guide

If you're Christmas or Hanukkah shopping this year (or any time that you're shopping for a gift) please try to buy at least one gift from a handmade artist. It's like two gifts in one, a gift for the person you're shopping for and money for the artist to buy gifts for their own loved ones or to buy things that they need (like rent, utilities, food, and medicine). It's a small thing that can make a big difference for a struggling artist.

I wanted to make it easy for everyone to buy handmade gifts from some people who make lovely products. These shops either don't have a lot of sales yet (fewer than 250 sales) or they're owned by people with (at least one) chronic illness. I included shops with a variety of handmade products for every kind of budget so you'll find some great stocking stuffers and some great main presents among these shops. Click a shop's product gallery image to visit that shop. Even if you aren't shopping this year please consider sharing this guide with your friends on social media.
