Small Business Saturday - Shop Small Gift Guide

Posted on November 25, 2020 at 9:39 AM by Claire Rodgers

Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country. Liberty's businesses need you now more than ever! When you're shopping this holiday season, remember to shop small! As a special Small Business Saturday edition, we've pulled a selection of Men's, Women's and Kids items from our Visit Liberty Gift Guides that are specifically from locally owned businesses. 

For Her
Anna Marie’s is a tea lovers haven. With an array of premium loose-leaf teas, there's a blend for everyone and the expert staff always have great recommendations. Then, pick up a 345 Perfect Timer ($20) so that special someone can steep their tea to perfection.

Bittersweet carries a variety handmade soaps, skin and home care products that bring a dose of luxury to your self care routine. But did you know that they also carry clothing and other boutique items? This gorgeous French Market Bag ($44) is so versatile, perfect for the farmer’s market or the beach, you might just want to get one for yourself too! 

Bring the fresh scents of the outdoors to enjoy inside . Untamed Supply has a self proclaimed knack for "capturing nature's pheromones" in its candle scents. Try Aspen Trail or Sweater Weather ($20)! Not only are Untamed Supply's candles hand poured in Liberty, they also have a store, The Outpost, filled with all kinds of goodies that makes great gifts. Plus they donate 3% of profits to National Parks. 

With beautiful home décor, florals, and gifts, Petals & Potpourri is a gift givers oasis. These door mats ($35 tray; $24 mat) are a fun touch to spice up the porch décor. Swap out the insert for each season.

The Hammerhand Coffee shop might be closed right now (relocating to new digs) but did you know that they also roast their own coffees? Give the coffee lovers on your list a unique new blend to try! With sweet and bright flavors, try the Everyman Medium Roast Blend. 

While the combination of beer and axe throwing might seem dangerous, it clearly has broad appeal. Anyone can be a lumberjack for the day! Give the gift of manly fun with a gift card to WoodChux.
