Is it just us, or does it seem a little *too* easy to order items from Amazon these days? You don’t always get what you wish for… or pay for. We’ve rounded up the best small business gifts from some fantastic creators to get this year’s shopping list going. From Etsy shops to small business vendors we’ve stumbled upon, cheers to shopping small!

A Healthline editor selected the products below, which were then vetted to ensure that they align with Healthline’s brand integrity standards and approach to well-being. The editor also tested all of these products hands-on. Read more about our product selection process.

The 8-ounce (oz.) version of this candle burns for up to 50 hours. It’s hand-poured in reusable containers. We love the options (including upcycled seasonal mugs) for their ever-exciting rotation of scents. Sea salt and orchid is our fave; it’s great year-round.

Queer Candle Co. donates 10% of their monthly earnings to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, an NYC grassroots organization working to “guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence.”
