This year, more than any other, we want to encourage everyone to shop small businesses (because Bezos doesn’t need more billions, he already has a trillion. Do you know how much that is?1 )

When you shop small you help all of us stay in business and put our money back into our local economies. Most of our gift guide is local to Salt Lake City and every business is locally, female, and/or artist owned. Just remember, when you buy from a real person they need a little shipping moola and a little time, so get right on it and deliver something truly unique.

A beautiful bouquet is a really wonderful and less traditional holiday gift. Or, you could buy a bundle of flowers to add to your gift wrapping. Lucy

  1. Let’s put trillions in perspective. If I give you $1 per second, you will have a million dollars in about 11 days. You’d have a billion dollars in about 32 years. It would take 31,688 years to get your trillion dollars. Let’s assume that a trillionaire won’t live 32000 years and maybe like, pay and take care of warehouse and delivery workers. /rant []
