Small Business Saturday
My favorite time of year: Small Business Saturday. Looking for that perfect gift? There are so many wonderful makers, doers, and small businesses who can use your support this holiday season. Make their season wonderful.
I might be a little biased because I work with some of these folks, but I just love these companies. Here is my small business shopping guide:
For the Candle Lover—KarmaLit. These candles make wonderful gifts. They smell good and do good too. KarmaLit is proud to donate a percentage of their sales to fund classroom needs. Karmalit.com
For the Avid Bicyclist—FattE-Bikes. They are passionate about the electric bike. At FattE-Bikes our mission is less about biking more and more about driving less. For an eco-friendly gift consider this Denver local company. They have a holiday promo through Thanksgiving weekend. https://fattebikes.com/
For the Chef in Your Life —The Empowered Kitchen. Katrina Brink of The Empowered Kitchen offers meal prep and cooking classes for individuals, families, groups of friends, teams, and couples. Her classes empower students to save time, eat great, and reduce stress. Empoweredkitchen.com
For the Coffee Lover — Pour Coffee Company. Elevate your morning ritual. Who doesn’t love coffee? Support this mom and pop (literally my mom and dad) on-line coffee venture. Send a bag to your friend. Pourcoffee.com
