Small Business Holiday Gift Guide 2020

Marketing technology company BrightEdge took a look at ecommerce companies across several different industries and found that online shopping is expected to increase this year compared to last year. While the increase may not be a surprise, it’s worth noting that retail practices have also shifted to accommodate the surge in online traffic. 

Many major retailers will no longer be holding Black Friday events in stores, but will instead be shifting their sales online. In turn, many smaller businesses will also be holding more online sales since that’s where customers will be spending their time. 

In an effort to highlight just a few small businesses out of the 31.7 million in the US, we’re showcasing 15 of our small business customers in our 2020 holiday gift guide. We’re lucky to get to serve these brands and hope you’ll find something you love for your friends, family, or for yourself.

These business owners have poured their hearts and souls into creating and curating beautiful products for their customers. And you may just receive your order in a Brandable Box custom box.

Dive in and check everyone off your gift list.

Vida Bars

We love an eco-friendly brand dedicated to reducing waste. Vida Bars produces solid shampoo and conditioners. Made from natural ingredients, each bar set is the equivalent of 2-3 bottles of product. All the ingredients for each bar — shampoo and conditioner, can be found listed on their website.

Founder Ana created Vida Bars during her own journey to find hair products free of sulfates, silicones, alcohols and mineral oils. Along her journey, she noticed the amount of bottles she had accumulated and looked for eco-friendly options. When she couldn’t find any, she decided to create her own option.
