With so many people on your nice list this year, it can be overwhelming trying to gather gifts for your tribe. But, there is no need to stress. We’ve gathered a few ways to help you find a unique gift for every person on your list.
There’s nothing like a gift that comes from a local business in your area. During our trip to Strawberry Hedgehog, an adorable soap shop located in Downtown Phoenix, we found gifts for everyone. This sweet shop has been nominated as one of the Best of the Valley businesses in Phoenix Magazine, and is recognized by Phoenicians and tourists alike. With everything vegan, handmade soaps to individually hand crafted oils, there is truly something for everyone. We visited Strawberry Hedgehog and not only found gifts for everyone on our list but we even learned how to DIY some amazing air fresheners for our own homes- bonus! Take a peek at this shop for yourself to learn more.

Buy Gifts That Give Back
Looking for a way to gift as many people as possible this holiday season? Try choosing gifts that give back. Both national and local retailers offer various types of ways to give gifts that keep on giving. If you are looking for a few ideas, try One Hope Wine for the wine lover in your life, Rowve bags for the yogi, or choose your own charity to donate to on Amazon. Regardless of the cause you choose to support, your gift is sure to impact the lives of many.
