Thank you so much for all of your messages and sweet words about my blog post on Friday, it meant more than you know. Even more exciting was hearing how many of you were excited about the idea of spreading love through sending small surprise gifts to loved ones from small businesses! So for today’s post, I’ve included a LOT of favorite small businesses (and promo codes) to help you find gifting inspiration. Please let me know if there are any other businesses you know and love that I’m missing! Also, if you send surprise gifts to a loved one too, please share what you are sending (without tagging the recipient so it’s still a surprise) in stories and tag me @soph_isticatedstyled with the hashtag #shopsmallwithsophie as well as tagging the small business. This way I can share favorite purchases in stories and on the blog and we can simultaneously promote lots of small businesses at the same time! I can’t wait to see what treasure go out in the mail!

Every now and then I find a brand that is an achilles heel for my bank account and Hazen & Co. is one of them. I have an obsession with their bracelet stacks and am always giving them as gifts.
