Tis the season for making lists and checking them twice! If you're looking for a few thoughtful gifts to give this holiday season, keep reading. This list even includes a couple teen entrepreneurs!


I ordered my scrunchies from Gifted Seams because the teen entrepreneur founder inspired me! She creates her accessories with second hand fabric in an effort to reduce textile waste. If you’re looking for stocking stuffers this holiday season, Gifted Seams sells chapstick holders, scrunchies, key fobs and zipper pouches. Follow them at @giftedseams on Instagram, TikTok, and Pinterest. You can buy a gift for a friend, family member, or yourself here:

I met Sheila virtually a few years ago. We have yet to meet in person, but that hasn't


stopped me from being inspired by her instagram and recent book. When she released her book Sketch by Sketch, I bought it for myself and others. The book helps people create a daily sketching practice that shifts you from negative thinking and spiraling emotions into the realm of possibility. There are over 40 sketching prompts on a variety of topics and in the process of sketching, you will find new ways to process your experiences. Give the gift of creativity and healing to you and your friends - buy copies here.


Ariela has been creating her bracelets for over a year now. They are extra special because each sale helps support the PET program at Helen Woodward Center.
