As we’re almost through November, you may have already started your holiday shopping (no shame). Which means you’re playing jolly ‘ol St. Nick for those special peeps on your list. Aka, furiously browsing online for the best gifts possible. But pause a second to consider this — when’s the last time you shopped locally?
This year, we’re taking some time to check in with small businesses. Especially after the rollercoaster that has been 2020. And to bring awareness to places that you may have never heard of, we paired with Goldman Sachs to highlight small businesses in their 10,000 Small Businesses program. It’s their investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital, and business support services.
And you can support small, too. Remember — a little bit does really go a long way. For even more great gifts from small-business owners this holiday season, check out their #MakeSmallBig Holiday Market.
PS: If something’s out of stock, oops, it was there when we published. And we apologize for any shipping delays due to COVID-19. Thanks.

Because virtual classes are (still) all the rage. We’ve got a folding treadmill, a grip that’ll transform dumbbells into kettlebells, and a yoga mat that has alignment markets. Get ready to sweat.
As if you haven’t baked enough bread. Here are things that’ll make the next few months better. Like an embroidery kit, a mini space heater for your desk, and a book dedicated to staying indoors.
Aka, things that’ll save you time and money. And just make life a bit easier. We’ve got patches that’ll heal pimples, a boot brush to get out scuff marks, and a detergent cup holder to end spills. Phew.
