Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderfully festive Thanksgiving yesterday. I’m guessing that many of you are off enjoying some Black Friday deals, and/or decorating the Christmas tree with your families today. What fun! The holiday season is officially underway!

For the final day of The Week of Thanks I wanted to encourage you all to make at least some of your holiday purchases this year with local businesses where you live, and/or through small businesses online. As a small business owner myself, I know just how much every single order means for both my current and future business dreams. Supporting local, small, and handmade is a lovely way to foster positive growth in our communities and around the world. I think you’ll agree with me, that this is something that is definitely worth investing in.

So with that in mine, here are just a few of my favorite indie shops to get you started. If you would like to share your favorites in the comment section below, that would be fantastic!

Home + Kitchen

Fashion + Accessories


Goods for Men + Women

Food + Gifts

Art + Paper Goods

Shops for a Cause

I have also included my lovely holiday sponsors in the list above. They not only create and sell wonderful things, but make Creature Comforts possible. So a great big thank you to them! Happy happy holidays friends! xo Ez

P.S. I’ll be back in just a little bit with a fab holiday discount for my shop. It will be the best one of the year…so you won’t want to miss it!

    Thank you so much for including my store. Black Friday was a crazy great day, but today was even bigger and better! 4 of us spent the entire day packaging orders and we still have 90 to go! It’s so encouraging to have so many blog friends supporting us, so thank you so very much Ez <3

    I think when you own your own business and you start making things hand made you really start to appreciate the time and effort that goes into things different artists make hand made. Its nice to see people being encouraged to buy more local or hand made items vs cheaply made mass produced things! :)

    That’s my goal this Christmas, to try and buy as many presents as possible from small businesses. It just feels so good, and the presents end up being a lot more unique. xx
