15 Thoughtful Christmas Gift Ideas – Shop Small BusinessUnsplash

Christmas is a season chock full of tradition. Family Christmas traditions, religious traditions, community traditions, a tradition amongst friends, neighborhood traditions and so on. Yes, for sure, we all love our Christmas traditions!

One of our family’s favorite, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s one of yours too, is the gifting! Don’t you just love finding the perfect gift for that special someone? Then the anticipation that mounts from you waiting to see their expression and finally their joy in receiving it! Yes, it’s a much anticipated tradition around here!

Personally I love the classic, simple gifts of Christmas. I adore giving gifts that are practical, personal and overall let the receiver know I was thinking of them specifically. Take a cue from children, they are so insightful! I have found my son’s gift ideas year after year to be perfect (and sometimes comical too, but that only adds to the charm!) for the person they were gifting.

It sure wouldn’t do us any harm in this day and age to bring back much simpler gifts while at the same time stressing the true meaning of the season.

So let’s dive into this gift idea list!

I’ve compiled some long standing traditional gifts as well as classic presents with a more modern twist. All of the gifts listed are made in the USA! Many of these are small businesses that would especially appreciate your business this season. So whether you’re looking for a gift for a boss, hostess gift, gift for your close friend, a gift for an elderly neighbor or even for a family, there’s something here for everyone! I tried my best to compile a very broad gifting list.

Enjoy…and merry Christmas giving!
