One of my favorite bloggers, Naomi Dunford of IttyBiz.com, has written a fabulous gift guide for 2009. Naomi's mission in life is to help little businesses by providing top-notch advice on marketing, social media, product launches and the like. If you run an itty biz or would like to start one, I highly recommend checking her out. She's also funny as heck – I often literally laugh out loud when reading her posts.
Back to her gift guide – Naomi includes lots of suggestions of gifts from small businesses owners and artists, like Tricia McKellar, whose spectacular photography prints would be a terrific gift for almost anyone on your list. I particular like her "Through the Viewfinder" series and will probably end up buying some of her prints for myself!
There's also beautiful stuff for your home (plus stationary and jewelry) at Bailey Doesn't Bark. Is that a catchy, memorable name or what??
You can check out the rest of Naomi's gift sggestions here. A word of warning – Naomi often includes curse words in
her posts (used appropriately, I think), but if that's something that
will offend you, you may want to look elsewhere for small business
advice. But in my opinion, you'll be missing out!
