Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, or nothing but family, food, and friends this season, here are some holiday gift ideas for the women, men and children in your life.
I chose natural and organic items from Etsy.com and PoppySwap.com because I believe in supporting artisans. When you buy handmade, you are enabling hardworking individuals and families, who infuse their time, talent and love into their products, to support themselves and to continue making unique products.
I have shopped with many of these sellers in the past, and several of them have been featured on this blog (an asterisk indicates that I have purchased and enjoyed their creations). Click the images to be taken to the items.
