Gratitude and Gratefulness shop - inspirational and motivational gifts
You may not have thought of it, but many small businesses are online only. The folks who sell crafts at etsy, many of the shopkeepers of Zazzle and Cafepress, independent artists who run small businesses out of their homes and maintain a web presence, are just as deserving of your consumer dollars as any other bricks-and-mortar shop. So if you're in the mood to relax and shop from the convenience of your own home, here is a list of small home-based businesses offering unique gifts you won't find at the mall.
I've preselected these so you can be assured they are (1) safe to click on, and (2) legitimate small businesses.
