Discover truly unique gift ideas that will leave your friends and family smiling all season through our Holiday Gift Guide below.
This year it’s more important than ever to think about where you’ll be spending your holiday gift budget. Small businesses have faced an unprecedented year of challenges, but by rallying around our local artists, creators and small businesses owners we can help them thrive despite the circumstances.
We asked members of our community, folks we’ve featured before and our content partners and subscribers to tell us about the products and services they are offering that are ideal for gifting this holiday season. Content partners help us in so many ways from sponsoring our mission, spreading the word about the work we do and collaborating with us on content like this.
We hope you enjoy the options highlighted below and we hope you’ll reach out with suggestions for additions.

Our handmade California beach epoxy charcuterie boards make an awesome one-of-a-kind gift for Christmas! Each one is made with specific bar top epoxy and colored pigments to capture the essence of ocean waves. The bare wood areas are great for using as a cutting board, charcuterie board and the epoxy area is perfect for displaying and serving your favorite food at your next get-together or party. The back side of each board is raw wood and does not have epoxy so it can be used as a cutting board also. Visit our retail store in Julian, CA to see everything in person on the weekends!

I make Crystal grid candles and manifestation jars. I take the properties of essential oils, crystals, and Reiki energy to create a candle that can amplify the energy in one space.
After going through the dumpster fire that is online dating, I noticed a pattern of men who were lacking emotional intelligence or maturity. I found myself saying, “Men need therapy” so often that it became sort of a catchphrase; thus this shirt was born. Beyond my dating frustrations, this Men Need Therapy shirt is also about promoting mental health and reducing the stigma around seeking help or wanting to work on one’s self. This is a great gift for anyone who can agree with these sentiments and enjoys a little snarkiness in their wardrobe.
We hand-carve nonplayable vinyl records and upcycle them into wall-hanging art. Unique, linking the past with the present in the music and film industry.
