Local Christmas Gift Guide: 32 Antiguan Small Businesses to Support

Hey Friends! 

Fa la la la la la la la 🎶 Christmas bells already?! Believe it or not we’re less than 50 days away from Christmas. Where did 2020 go?! Times may be a little different this time around but I hope you guys can still spread some Christmas cheer to those near and dear to you. As such I’ll be sharing a few local (Antiguan) businesses you can support during this time. Supporting small businesses means supporting your community and creating connections. A lot of work and effort went into their entrepreneurial journey, whether they’re offering a product or service, it was no easy decision. Big corporations don’t need your support as much as small businesses do. Let’s support someone’s dream!

What I particularly love about some of these small businesses are how innovative their owners are. Be sure to get your orders in as soon as possible since most of these items are handmade. I’ve gone ahead and divided the list into specific categories: Home Decor, Jewellry, Beauty & Skincare, Hair, Sweet Treats and Gifts for Friends & Family.
