We’re pleased to announce a new addition to our collection of resources aimed at helping folks find the perfect gift! A few months ago, we added a Quotations page to our collection of Gifting Resources to provide a solid collection of sourced quotes for easy peasy card and letter writing. Today, we launched a directory of Our Favorite Online Vendors.
What was our thinking behind this page? Sometimes half the battle when it comes to gift giving is knowing great places to shop for gifts - places a little out of the ordinary, doing an exceptionally good job of making (or stocking) high quality products. So, we thought, let’s round up some of our favorite vendors in one place, in an easy-to-access, searchable list.
If you use the internet, we’re guesstimating that there’s about a 99.99999% chance you’ve heard of Amazon.com, along with a host of other nationally, or internationally known retailers. Since it’s likely you already know the big names, those well known vendors are not the focus of (or even included) in our directory - instead, we wanted highlight somewhat smaller operations, be it retailers, or makers and artisans who are selling their own wares or who focus on a very specific niche of products.
The majority of the vendors we’ve included in our directory are ones we have ordered from personally. A few of them though are shops we have not yet patronized. Where that’s the case, they will have popped up on our radar as places of interest, spots where we are likely to shop in the future, either for ourselves, or to buy a gift for a loved one - or both! If we have shopped from a particular place ourselves, you can quickly tell as our little birdie logo will be right next to the vendor’s name.
As we move forward, we plan to keep adding to our vendor directory - indeed, there’s already a bit of a backlog as we have a fair number of favorites. We promise to get on that pronto. In the meantime though, without further ado, please welcome our brand new reference to the Gifting Resources section of the site: Our Favorite Online Vendors. We hope you find it helpful!
