If you want to shop local without going into a physical store nearby, a great way to support independent, small business owners is by shopping on Etsy. It’s a place where you’ll discover items you can’t find anywhere else (unlike big department store and retailer products!) From musical instruments and jewelry to glass art, pet gifts and even website template designs (for that entrepreneur or blogger friend in your life), there’s something for everyone on your list.

Last but not least, Amazon has to be included on this holiday shopping list. It has almost anything you can think of, in every color and size. Whether you’re looking to buy beard oil for your brother, knitting needles for your grandma or a set of DVDs for Dad, you’re sure to find it on Amazon.

Another perk of this powerhouse company? They offer a lot of great daily deals. Check out the Today’s Deal section before making full priced purchases. And, if you don’t have Amazon Prime, group your items together in a single order. Typically, if purchases go over a certain dollar amount, you don’t have to pay shipping!
