We all love shopping at popular retailers (Amazon, anyone?), but there is something extra special about buying from lesser-known brands on Etsy. Supporting small brands can make all the difference to the entrepreneurs working tirelessly behind the scenes. Every sale counts for them, so if you are looking for cute gift ideas, consider shopping small on Etsy. Not only are you supporting a small business, but you can find some unique gifts that even big corporations don’t have.
