Today, I am so excited to share my 2020 Holiday Gift Guide and this year is special. If there is one thing that 2020 has taught us, it’s the power of love, community, and supporting each other. So this year, I wanted to find ways to make gift giving super intentional and making sure I shopped from businesses that had a purpose. That includes a B corporation. If you’re not familiar, Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. So keep an eye out for the B-Corporation logo while doing your holiday shopping this year and know that your gifts have a purpose. And I’m so happy to see so many other business that are giving back this year. From bigger companies to local shops, I’m seeing so many do their part by donating a portion of sales to charities and non-profits. I’ve shared some of my favorites in this year’s gift guide! I hope you enjoy and I hope you all are taking this time to rest, reset, and reflect.
