Have Yourself a Merry Small Business Christmas

There are two things I love: Christmas and local Small Businesses. As I made my Christmas list this year, I started thinking “is it possible to mostly shop small this Christmas?” I decided…challenge accepted! There are a few local places that I have found have the perfect gifts to give here in Baton Rouge.

Season to Taste (@seasontotastebr – Instagram)

Season to Taste is a local, family-owned business that has a variety of Olive Oils, Vinegar, Coffee, Teas, and various locally made gifts. My favorite flavor of olive oil is Wild Mushroom & Sage – this is a GAME CHANGER for all your egg needs, seriously try scrambled eggs in this oil & you will never go back! A favorite of my husband is Cilantro & Roasted onion, we use this on all veggies.

Our teachers this year are getting their sample set – They are $30.00 and come with a sample of four different oils. You can customize it or ask the nice staff at Season to Taste to pick their favorites! There are a lot of other options for gift sets. I love that this gift is consumable & will not add to a clutter-filled Christmas!

CounterspaceBR is a local bakery that has a variety of sweet treats and is known for its unique salted chocolate chip cookies (Try them, you will not regret it). This season, they have launched a Cookie Subscription Box! You can give the gift of Cookies year around! You choose from one month, three months, or six-month subscription. Each gift box will include 6 of their top-selling Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies and 6 seasonal cookies that are a subscription exclusive flavor!

These subscription boxes start at $33.00.  There are a few out-of-town family members I am planning on sending cookies to, everyone loves a little happy delivered to their door!

Mountain Pure CBD (@mountainpurecbd – Instagram)

Mountain Pure CBD is a locally owned therapeutic CBD product line.  Mountain Pure produces Broad-Spectrum tinctures and an extensive line of CBD capsules, topicals, bath and pet products designed to enhance the wellness of its consumers. I recently tried Mountain Pure CBD’s Revive Bath Bombs. Y’all, every single person needs to experience the relaxation that comes from these bath bombs. You know that post-massage relaxed feeling? These bath bombs are those at home!

The Revive Bath Bombs are $10.00 each and come in two different scents. I am giving these to a few mama friends that I know need a little relaxation in their lives.

There are so many great small businesses in the Red Stick these are just the three I am shopping at this season. I hope you all support local this holiday season!

Tiffany is happily married to her high school sweetheart, Desmond. Together they get to play the roles of Mommy and Daddy to Micah, a gifted Math Wiz of a teenager who is always making people laugh, and Keilyn, a spunky, flower loving, dancing girl who will stop and talk to anyone she meets. She was born and raised in Baton Rouge and has Cajun blood running through her veins. She works full time outside of the home in business administration. She started the journey of motherhood young but wouldn’t have it any other way. Her children have taught her to laugh, play and that sometimes it’s ok not to have a plan! She has a passion for teenagers and is an active mentor in her church’s youth group. In her rare free time she enjoys shopping, coffee, and date nights with her husband. She believes that everyone has a story to tell and enjoys meeting new people, making people laugh, and spending time with friends and family.
