If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it probably ten times during the past decade-plus here on AoS… Shop small and local when you’re able, shop larger when you need to. I completely get there are times when we need to shop online for gifts, guilt-free.
And even better — there are ethical brands represented on Amazon, where you can also take advantage of Prime’s quick shipping. If you’ve still got gifts to buy and you’re feeling flustered, take heart: I’ve collected for you a few ideas from reasonable brands, found on Amazon.
First off, books are the best sort of gift — I’ve already curated some of my favorites.
- Homesick Candle from all sorts of places (especially apropos these days; we’re currently loving the Oregon)
