Christmas, Holidays

Small Business Spotlight – Holiday Gift Wrapping

Today I am sharing a few special and unique holiday gift wrapping ideas from some incredible small business artists and makers.

Starting my own small business has given me a whole new appreciation for what it takes to run a successful business when you are working solo or with limited help.  I started my business first and foremost because I wanted to create.  I continue to try and make my business lucrative by playing the roles of CEO, marketing director, social media director, shipping department, stylist, photographer, and blogger, none of which I am particularly skilled at.  And I do all this while still finding time to continue to be as creative as I had hoped to be and most importantly staying true to who I am. 

It’s not easy, and I know I’m not alone.  I see other artists and makers everyday doing so much for their businesses while continuing to make inspired artwork.  And it inspires me everyday.  In that spirit, I want to support and “spotlight” other artists and creators as they juggle all these roles, by sharing some of my current favorites with you.  I hope to do this throughout the year, so check back often to see what other handmade creations I have found!

The artists below have created some very special holiday packaging.   Using unique gift tags and wrapping can take your holiday gifting to a whole new level.  Gorgeous to look at and fun to receive, these gift tags and papers are a great way to add something special AND support a small business! 

In no particular order, check out this incredible work!
