Every year we put together a holiday gift guide to make your shopping a little easier. Despite 2020 turning the world upside down, we were determined to find some great clutter-free options for you and the family! Joining me today is SBO Partner, Melynda Weiland. Melynda is the founder of Order to Everything in Austin, TX. Together we scoured the internet to find a variety of gifts that won’t add to the clutter or break the bank!
We broke our gift guide down into 8 categories:
- Bath and Body
- Food & Beverage
- Personalized Gifts
- and my personal favorite, Gifts that Give Back
Although many of these items are physical in nature, they made the list because they are something to use, wear or play-without taking up much space.
In years past, experiences like concerts, sporting events and theater tickets topped the list, however given our current climate, we opted to bring the fun experiences inside our homes.
Every company on our list was hand selected by either Melynda or me. We were not compensated in any way, either with product or monetary to endorse any of these (although we personally use many of them!)
I encourage you to listen to the entire episode to see why each of these made the list.(Links to each company are at the bottom of the show notes.)
Quick side note, I did my best to support small online businesses, local retailers, and artisans this year rather than big box stores. As you shop this list, please consider making your purchases from your local toy stores, boutiques, and family owned businesses who are struggling to stay afloat during our economic shut downs.
