I am thrilled to have been selected as a Top Holiday Pick in the Rising Tide Gift Guide, both in the jewelry section AND the home goods section! So cool! This curated selection of makers is an impressive collection of talent. I'm not even close to half way through and have seen more great gift ideas than I can count.
Now I'm not about to encourage you to go buy someone else's jewelry, because hey, I'm jealous like that. So luckily there are lots of great gift categories besides jewelry in there too! I especially love this guide as a great way to find young and emerging fine artists, like the ones featured below, and so many more.
I know I am biased. But I personally always try to give handmade gifts for the holidays. So much capital flows around during the holiday shopping season, and when you choose to buy something from an artist or a maker a real actual person does a little happy dance, myself included! By supporting creative entrepreneurs, you make it possible for hundreds of brilliant makers, artists, and creatives to continue building a business that they love. I think that is the best holiday gift of all. I hope this guide simplifies your search for the perfect gift, while supporting the Creative Economy in the process!
The Rising Tide Society created this gift guide to help simplify your search for the perfect gift, while making it as convenient as possible to support the creative community in the process!
And did I mention that this guide has raised over $7000 for charity. All registration fees are being donated to the Direct Relief disaster fund. This incredible organization supports the immediate needs of disaster victims by coordinating with local partners best situated to assess, respond, and prepare for long-term recovery, to ensure the most efficient use of resources.
What could be better than that? So go ahead and start browsing the guide by clicking on any of the images in this post. I'll see you there.
