Small Business Holiday Gift Guide

I’ve always been a firm believer of supporting local businesses. Since I started blogging, I’ve connected with some incredible small business owners who were kind enough to help me when literally no one read my blog. While some of them are located across the country, it’s about time I showcase them all. After all, everything’s local online, right?  I’ve linked them all, so be sure to stop by and say Natasha sent you!

Crafts By Corey: I’ve known Corey since elementary school; when I found out he started building, I was so excited to purchase pieces! This would be ideal for Orange County area readers looking for desks, chairs, headboards, etc. His prices are affordable, and his products are beautiful.

Owl Be Sweatin’: My favorite hard working ladies, Mallory and KC, are firm believers in girl power, fitness, and giving back. Their headbands are non-slip, comfortable, and super cute. You can use code “underthesticks15” for 15% off, too.

Pacific Coast Apparel: Located in one of my favorite cities ever, this Encinitas-based company whips out great hats and apparel. Sun protection while repping Southern California? Yep, count me in.

Reclaimed Sonoma: If you’re in the NorCal area, visit Darren at Reclaimed Sonoma. His work is breathtaking.

Shop Josie B: The Original Bye Felicia Door Mat started here, so you know it’s gonna be good. Josie makes adorable door mats by hand, and while she has an abundance of existing designs, she can personalize one for you, too.


**I have not been compensated for any of this, but stand by all the featured products. :)
