Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016
May 02, 2016 21:48
If you are anything like me, you just realized Mother's Day is next weekend and you got nothing. Now it's Monday and it's getting down to the last minute gifts. Shopping local is important to you, and supporting indie businesses is even better! Why shop indie you ask? Well, shopping at a small business is saying yes to the one of a kind and the custom-made. You know that the owner of a small business is not using your money on their third mansion, but is using it to put food on the table for their family. Most importantly, money spent at a small business tends to stay in the local economy. This ultimately uplifts the entire community! So here is who Handbrewed Soaps is supporting this year for Mother’s Day. I hope you do too!
Hey Hey Gourmet – Some DAMN good spices! My all time fav is the Lemon Mary Rose. I added it to olive oil and dipped my artichoke in it! Yum! I also just made amazing lavender tea from this small biz. The lavender is grown in the owner’s own backyard!!! So refreshing!
Leading Lady Delights- Incredible morsels of delight!!! I’ve been ordering from this wonderful small biz for the past two years. I strongly recommend the English Toffee. If you’re local to Oakland, you can pick up your order!!! Yeah, save on shipping!!!
Gracious Goats- Let's be honest, all of their lotions and creams are amazing!! This once Oakland biz, relocated to Portland, and they are finally back in business!!! I strongly believe all mom’s need their feet to be pampered. What better way to do this than with their Rosemary Foot Cream!
This is my short but sweet Mother’s Day Gift Guide. These are amazing businesses with amazing products. Please support them!
Stay tune to learn more about each of these businesses in future blog posts!
