Of course, these tiny treasures can be even more thoughtful and unique if you get them from a cool small business.

From family-owned companies to brands from historically underrepresented groups, the brands below allow you to connect with like-minded people and find memorable and special presents for your loved ones that aren’t sold in bulk.

We also share a few details about each company so you can learn more about the businesses you are supporting.
