While it can be incredibly difficult to delete the 156th sale notification email of the day from your inbox, scooping up a gift from an independent store will provide all the warm gift-giving fuzzies you need this holiday season and beyond. On top of that, you’ll have unique gifts that will seriously up your gifting game. We’ve rounded up 18 makers, including a few from the B + C Shop, that are sure to inspire ideas for everyone on your list.
