It’s the most wonderful time of year! Which you know what that means…finding the perfect gift for that special someone in your life! One Christmas Tradition my husband and I have started, is incorporating small businesses into our gift buying. Which not only makes us do happy dance’s when we open gifts, it also makes the business owner do happy dances! This year I rounded up some of my favorite Dentonite small businesses and am showing you their TOP gifts this holiday season! Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers, self care, or gifts for her, these businesses have the gifts you need this holiday season!

Denton Trading Company
If you have been to any of my events this year, you already know about Denton Trading Company. Located in the heart of Denton at the Denton Square by West Oak Coffee Bar, you’re sure to find exactly what you need this holiday! These ladies know a thing or two when it comes to the perfect stocking stuffer! From candles, to games, to #GirlBoss moments, they have the perfect gift for everyone! For me, my husband and I love their fun unique card games they have in stock. My personal favorite though has to be their adorable mugs!

This holiday season, buy from a local.
One thing I will always do every season, is support local businesses. For many, the products they sell and revenue they generate is what they need to make ends meet until next Christmas. This season, instead of driving to the mall to fight the crowds, the parking lots, the endless “Try this sample!”. Head downtown, grab a coffee, and shop in Denton’s beautiful historic district! Where everyone is helpful and really embodies the true meaning of Christmas. This year, when you open your local gifted goodies on Christmas morning, or Eve if you’re my family! Be sure to tag the business you snagged your finds from! It’ll be like opening hundreds of presents in their DM’s all day on Christmas!
