It is finally here! Although for Christmas I prefer to give homemade gifts like spiced nuts, cookies, fermented foods or truffles. These are some of the bits I have hinted to my loved ones that I have admired this year or I either own them already! These are all either small batch, artisan made or from some of my favorite stores or local purveyors. All are for everyday use and are meant to be used. I often feel like holiday gift giving turns into about “stuff” and more is better, rather than one simple, well made piece that will be used and loved. I hope that this is something that you can return back to for other opportunities to give as well as this holiday season.
