What a time to be alive.
The pandemic persists, as do other large-scale (and not-entirely-unrelated) woes like systemic injustice and climate change — all while many of us are trying to make the work week “work” once more. Most of us could use even the tiniest of respites from trying to juggle it all. That’s where our gift guide comes in.
Now, there’s surely something to be said for emphasizing non-material expressions of appreciation, especially as our finances are still rebounding and supply-chain woes place added pressure on shoppers and sellers alike. But for those who earnestly enjoy gift-giving, or for those who want to show they care from a safe distance, we have an array of options that provide breaks, big and small, to recipients of all ages and interests.
Bonus: With these gifts, you’ll be lifting up women-owned small businesses — a sector of our economy that continues to struggle from the effects of a pandemic-induced recession.
So if you’re starting to brainstorm what to get for others as the holiday season nears — from your employees, who are expertly navigating their hybrid work schedules, to your closest gal pal, who’s an unapologetic wine (or weed) mom, and everyone in between — we’ve got you covered.
