For the fourth year running, I have made a personal commitment to only buying handmade gifts this holiday season. Please encourage your friends and family to buy (and create!) handmade gifts. Whether you do so online, in local shops, or in your own kitchen, the gift of a handmade item can’t be beat. To learn more, visit BuyHandmade.org.
+ Are you planning to buy handmade this holiday season? If so, where will you be doing your shopping? (And what’s on your handmade wish-list?!)
+ As I did last year, I would like to welcome any independent hand-makers to post links to their shops in the comments. Please keep all links limited to the spirit of handmade goods from independently-run businesses.
