Small Business Gift Guide
"Our job is not to make the most we can, but the best we can."
David, Founder of Hiut Denim.
Supporting the movers, the makers + the shakers this Christmas is incredibly important to real families and to the economy. You can support small business by purchasing products or by sharing the love and simply telling friends and family about the guide and sharing on social. Every little helps ;)
Below is a list, split into categories to help you find your perfect presents. Also, we understand the need to shop locally and small too. So this season we have teamed up with We Got This Sometimes. The link takes you to just Norfolk businesses. As we grow each year we will add more regions.
