Every year, we do an entire show dedicated to help you with your last-minute holiday shopping. Lucky for you, we’ve got an entire holiday gift guide full of awesome gift ideas, many of which are from handmade artists, indie artisans, and small businesses. So, on this episode, we call out some of our favorites in the hopes that you can knock a few items off your list. And, our awesome Etsy giveaway! You’ll want to enter that, stat.
