What’s the best gift you have ever received? I imagine it was something so thoughtful you know it came from the heart.
Some of the best gifts I have ever received (and given) were handmade. I remember giving my mom a special locket necklace with three birthstones (to represent her three children) and it was truly unique―she still cherishes it today and thanks me for how special it was. It was so fun to put on the custom touches with the artisan, and it made it even more special that I knew I was supporting a small business when I made that purchase.
As we are on the last days of the countdown until Christmas, I encourage you to check out the Amazon Handmade Giftshop. This year has been my first time discovering it and let me just say I am impressed. You can shop by more than 65 countries and find handcrafted gifts from artisans around the world.
