While this guide may be geared towards Gen Z...it's also a gift guide for those young at heart who still haven't really figured out a basic skincare routine or those that just really like Bugles. I mean...why not? While tiktok trends change every day these gifts won't stop giving, bestie.
Why are guys so hard to buy for? UGH! Every year I work myself up over what to gift Dad, husband, bro, Father-in-Law, and Brother-in-Law. This guide is basically just a compilation of stuff I think they would like.

Unlike many gift guides you've seen, these guides feature products from woman-owned businesses, BIPOC businesses, one-person run businesses, and of course a majority local smaller businesses. While Amazon is always an easy buy, finding something special from the wealth of small businesses in the area can be a little trickier! I took the work out of it for you this season in hopes that you will find a way to shop small this holiday season!
