When you buy something from a small business, you’re keeping an entrepreneur’s dream alive and directly affecting their bottom line during these crazy times. Many of our favorite small businesses have made it really easy to shop online and send gifts to loved ones from afar. So whether you pick up curbside or order from their website, check out these great small businesses!
Clif Family – You probably know how much we love the Rosé, but did you know that Clif has so many tasty food products? Their hot sauce is on our gifting list this year. We put it on everything! They're offering 20% off to you too, using code SMALLBIZ.
Whole Spice – You’ll never go back to store-bought spices, after you try their unusually vibrant spice blends. We love their Ras el Hanout on roasted cauliflower! Or their za'atar spice mix with a fresh baguette and olive oil.
There are WAY too many wineries for us to choose from…so what we want to recommend is that you buy directly from a Napa or Sonoma winery this year to support all the small producers that have been hit hard from the fires and the pandemic. They need our help more than ever and often have terrific deals on shipping and gift sets on their websites!
Napa Bookmine – Every time we step foot in this bookstore, we find the PERFECT book that we never knew we needed to read. The staff always just “gets you" and their Instagram is a great way to find out what’s new!
McEvoy Ranch – We purchased the Organic Olio Healing Balm back in January and instantly realized that we were going to need more of it. It’s light enough to use as a hand lotion and has the added benefit of healing many of our small cuts and scratches!
Earthtonics – Their face scrub changed our life, no joke. This jewel box of a store is based down in Ojai and focusses on organic and wild harvested ingredients. You will smell as lovely as you feel!
Bon Tom Studio – We met the owner, Erika. a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love with her line of beautiful, things. Everything in her Healdsburg store is carefully curated and sold with a stylish flare!
Little Blue Lane – Thoughtful gift boxes for any occasion!
Little Sycamore - Beautiful handmade jewelry!
Candles, Soaps and Lotions:
Sweet Blossom – We’ve known Juanita for years, and she makes LOVELY candles and lotions that smell exactly like what is on the label.
