Your Amazon gift guide for shopping small this holiday season (and always!)
Before we get started with our Amazon gift guide, we want to acknowledge that there are so many opinions out there about Amazon. However, we know two things are true: their platform is quick and convenient, and small businesses can thrive on the platform. While we always recommend shopping directly from a brand when you can, we also know it’s not always possible.
The holidays are earlier than ever this year, combined with the dreaded supply chain issues we’ve all heard so much about. To help you out, we’ve put together a guide of small businesses that are verified sellers on Amazon so you can still shop small and get your gifts in time for all the indie beauty and small business lovers on your list.
You can check out the entire list on our storefront, or read on for mini-guides for everyone on your list. From dad to your best friend, there is an indie brand for you!
