Must Shop Small Shops

Updated: Apr 19

It's that time of the year again, and the editors at MORE have put together a list of some of our favorite small shops, local shops (to us and where we wish we were) and businesses owned by real people. Between you, me, and the internet, there are a millions ways to support great businesses created by the best people, two of those ways? Sharing their work and buying directly from them. Happy holiday shopping, and happy supporting!

Food + Wine

Do you have a foodie in your life? Maybe you're shopping for the wine connoisseur in your life? Perhaps you want to gift a pal a future meal by paying ahead? Check out these wineries + restaurants for gift cards, wine for shipping + swooping.

Bigger than You

These shops are incredible, not only for their offerings, but what they give back to their community. These gifts can be big or small, just know that what you're buying is bigger than you—be sure you peep their about pages!

Made with Love

Hand-crafted/selected and hand-packaged, these small shops will send packages with that extra special touch to make your gift-giving top-notch. And bonus—you'll be making a business owner's dreams come true!

Thrifted + Selected

Shop secondhand for that perfect vintage style. You know you won't be gifting something they can find just anywhere else! Find quality items with the uniqueness you can't find in a mall (or on Amazon).
