Hudson Valley Makers gift guide

I think you can tell from some of my recurring series (Local Love and Girl Boss, to name two) that I’m a big fan of small businesses and people who find something they’re passionate about and make it work. I also have a soft spot for New York’s Hudson Valley which just so happens to be where I live and which is bubbling with creative awesomeness.

While putting together gift guides for the holidays, I realized it would be crazy to miss out on tapping into some of that local goodness. There are so many talented makers out there and the little guys deserve the spotlight just as much as those with a bigger budget do.

So, I gathered a list of a few of my favorite local makers whose pieces would be perfect for gift giving any time of year to put together a Hudson Valley gift guide that’s bursting with local makers.
