Did you know I actually got my start on Instagram as a small shop owner selling vintage goods? True story. I no longer run my shop, but that experience has left a lasting impression on me, as I now make an intentional effort to support artisans & makers by shopping small. I know firsthand the amount of heart and hustle that small shop owners pour into their businesses, and it’s a privilege to know that my purchases from them have a direct impact on their lives and careers! There are so many amazing artisans out there, and I wanted to let you guys know about a new way that I recently discovered to shop small: Amazon Handmade. With makers from over 80 countries, Amazon Handmade allows you to shop a unique selection of gifts and décor from artisans all over the world.
I love being able to shop small-batch bath products, and was thrilled to discover The Little Flower Soap Co on Amazon Handmade. This Michigan-based husband and wife team make high quality small batch bath products, and I am here for it! This grapefruit bath salt smells amazing and even more importantly it detoxifies & increases circulation, which is important for me since I have issues with my circulation particularly in this cold winter weather. Their products would make such a great gift all year round for any special occasion!
What is also really neat about Amazon Handmade is that you can enjoy fast & free delivery of your items with Amazon Prime two-day shipping on a lot of products, including items from these small shops: Sunbasil Soap and Kaya Soaps.
I especially like to include items from artisans & makers when I’m giving gifts to others because it ensures that the gift is unique and it also shows that there was thought and effort put into selecting the gift specifically for that person. Whether I’m shopping for a birthday, baby shower, wedding gift, or pretty much any occasion, the Amazon Handmade Gift Guide is a great resource for ideas. I encourage you to check it out to get inspired for those you are shopping for all through out the year!
These beautiful earrings are from Nadean Designs, one of the shops whose items are Prime eligible! Amazon Handmade with quick delivery, for the win!
Candles are the perfect gift for just about anyone anytime, and I’m loving the variety of options from Sweet Water Décor, which also ships fast & free with Prime!
Handmade pottery is a timeless gift and Jays Clay has some incredibly creative items. I love the organic aesthetic of these handmade pieces! This one is under $30 and that includes the free shipping with Prime!
The convenience of shopping Amazon Prime combined with the ability to support small batch artisans is truly the best of both worlds! Be sure to check out Amazon Handmade next time you’re in the market for a unique and meaningful gift!
