entrepreneurs supporting entrepreneurs: cute gift ideas

We are officially into the month of December! Welcome to the holiday season :)

Like most of you probably have been, I've been browsing gift options and ideas online for WEEKS. My hubs and I operate on a very strict budget at Christmas time, carefully planned out early in the year (usually September) so that we don't go overboard and also so that we don't forget any of the important people in our lives. I find this to be an extra important step because we have 5 family birthdays in the month of December, 3 other close friends, and 3 more family birthdays in January! The gift-giving year is heavily stacked between these two months so I have to keep organized in order to stay sane!

However, I know that most people don't operate like this and I imagine there are still many of you who could use a little gift-giving inspiration. So, I thought I would share some of my favourite holiday pieces by female entrepreneurs this season. As small business owners, we all know how important it is to support each other - I encourage you to buy from another entrepreneur this season and spread the holiday love.

Letterpress print

As entrepreneurs we know that life IS better when we can strike that balance - that amazing sweet spot between work and life demands. We want to be independent business owners and still find time for the other important things in our life. We want to have our cake and eat it too, no?
