35 Special Items to Buy in Support of Small Businesses Today

2020 has really done a number on many businesses, but it's pretty much the consensus that none have been affected quite as adversely as small businesses. For that reason and more, it's more important than ever to shop small businesses this holiday season and beyond. And it just so happens that some of our favorite things in the world are made by small businesses, and many of those businesses need your help (and you get something great on your doorstep in return). 

When it comes to big, overwhelming shopping days such as Small Business Saturday, it's always good to have a game plan, and that's where we come in. We curated a lovely list of items that are either small-business brands or sold by small-business boutiques. Among them are loungewear, jewelry, masks, and plenty more special items to keep for yourself or gift. With that, scroll for 35 finds that you'll feel good about shopping.
