Winner and Gift Guide announcementI wanted to do something a little different from all the gift guides I have seen this holiday season. Something that would celebrate small businesses, and this lil’ state of Vermont that I love. So I partnered with three amazing female business owners right here in Vermont to curate one amazing Lil’ Vermont Holiday Gift Guide. The Country Store on Main, KEP Designs, and Monelle Vermont.

If you see something in this guide that you would love for yourself send this to your husband or significant other, they will thank you for making their lives easier. I tried to make this easy to shop, all Green lettering links directly to the item. If you see something you want to buy for a friend or loved one, please do,  because shopping small changes your community, it changes a family, it truly makes a difference. Happy Holiday’s from our lil’ family to yours! xxoo
