As we enter this festive season of Thanksgiving and merriment, I am truly honored to bear the title of a small business owner. Thank you for letting me share part of my life and expertise with you, thank you for entrusting me with part of your life and stories. It is an honor. Learn now how to shop on small businesses with this simple gift guide!
Most of what I share benefits you for free, but some of the links I share, I make a SMALL commission which helps support my family and allows me to keep sharing free content with you. While it doesn’t change anything for you, it makes me do a happy dance. For me, it’s not just about the money (although diapers and food are expensive ), it’s about IMPACT. Whether it’s regaining your energy, feeling confident in your skin or balancing your hormones, this impact matters.
On this Small Business Saturday, thank you for supporting Flourish, my family, and the small team of women around the country who help make everything you see possible!
One of the greatest, and most unexpected blessings, on this entrepreneurship journey has been connecting with other like-minded women run small businesses.
Supporting these small businesses this season and beyond supports both the women behind the brand but also artisans and makers all over the world.

Flourish favorite: Our Little Adventures
Inspired by the French word for sanctuary, Sanctuaire, this lovely home decor shop offers timeless pieces to make your dwelling a calming, happy, and safe place. Each piece is consciously crafted by artisans in the US and around the world.
Their book Together will make you cry every time you read it! It shares the sweetest message with lovely illustrations to warm your heart. As the book says: “It doesn’t matter what we do, something grand or something small, I know our time together is the greatest gift of all.”
Flourish favorite: Together
These small batch candles celebrate seasons and daily rituals and encourage you to savor the moment. They use American made soy wax, phthalate-free fragrances and essential oils and cotton wicks for a non toxic burn.
Her prints celebrate the natural beauty of flowers and nature. We have several hanging in our house and they add so much joy to a space.
I found Few Made through my amazing graphics designer and fell in love with their jewelry! They are also military like our family and work to source materials from ethical vendors.
My go-to for sustainable home decor, baskets, children’s art supplies and more. The shop owner Erica has become a sweet friend and bright spot in my life! You can’t go wrong with anything in her shop and you will treasure these pieces for years to come.

Val Marie Paper
Her prayer and gratitude journals have changed everything for me! I am *not* a journaler, but these simple prompts keep it practical and realistic even when you only have a few minutes. It’s been amazing to watch the miracles and answered prayers unfold. This is truly such a gift of hope!
Organic and sustainable staples made for babies, children and women, their quality is amazing and every item is so soft! We typically use their sweaters for 2 seasons—truly worth the investment – and one of our best advices for you on this gift guide.
