2017 Holiday Gift Guide: Seasonal + Personalized Gifts

Hi everyone, happy holidays! Have you started your holiday shopping yet?  Well, if not, no worries, we have you covered! In honor of Small Business Saturday coming up, for the next three days, we'll be sharing thirty gift items from a few of our SCF Alumni, to help you to think of creative, fun, holiday, or happy gift ideas for so many people on your list. Today, Day 1, we are specifically focusing on items for the holidays and for gifts you can personalize.  From Holiday cards to ornaments and gifts for your littles, we hope you love what you see! Each maker, artist, or designer has included links to their specific items so that you can purchase directly from them.  Please remember to shop small this season, and we look forward to seeing you here for the next three days to celebrate!
