Howdy, happy shoppers! Given how much I love giving gifts … and supporting handmade … and smaller retailers … I thought Curious Jac needed to put out a gift guide for all the wonderful ladies in your lives.

These shops are all ones I’ve either a) purchased from and can personally vouch for or b) admired from afar and have included on my Christmas list this year.

I’ve also tried to keep the cost at $40 and lower, because economy. And any Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals I’ve learned about are included, too!
