Moms Supporting Moms Gift Guide

  • by

There are very few silver linings that have come out of the last few months. But, shopping and supporting small is one of them.

Just weeks after quarantine started, Facebook groups dedicated to supporting local restaurants popped up and, now, have more than 9,000 members. Business owners have pivoted their businesses to give back to their community. And, most recently, I’ve seen quite a few people looking for local vendors to support this holiday season.

We have a favor to ask, whenever possible this holiday season; please shop small before turning to a big box store. Not only will you discover unique gifts and products, but your support means the world to small business owners.

Inspired by a post looking for homemade holiday gifts in the West Chester, PA Moms Facebook Group, we’ve gathered small shops to support this holiday season.
