This year it is more important than ever that we shop small and support our alumni-owned small businesses! With each purchase you make from a small business, you help create a more vibrant community. Check out our 2020 Alumni Small Business Holiday gift guide to get some inspiration for your loved ones and make sure to head over to our @EcclesAlumni Instagram to let us know what other small businesses you are supporting this year!

Do you have an adventurer on your list? Well, you are in luck because Bluebird Hats is on a mission to make high-quality hats for adventurous people! They offer 6 styles of knit beanies in countless colors so it might be hard to only buy one. Even better? They offer free shipping in the US!
We all know somebody who seems to have everything. What do you gift to a person like that? A custom painted pair of vans, hydro flask, or Yeti of course! Vegas’s favorite Vincent “VANS” Gogh, Baylea Clayton, can bring it to life and get it to you before Christmas with an additional fee. Check out some designs on Instagram @otwxbay to get some ideas and message her today to place your order!
Our holiday celebrations may look a little different this year. With Busken Bakery, you can ship some freshly baked goodies to friends and family wherever they may be. Check out their coffee cakes and cookies or send a gift card so your loved ones can pick out their own treat!
Is it just us or are charcuterie boards really having a moment? The perfect quarantine gift is the gift of America’s Best Charcuterie through Olympia Provisions. Handmade is just better but don’t take our word for it: The New York Times, New Yorker Magazine, Bon Appetite and more are all raving. Gift a subscription, a set, or an assortment of salami, sausage, and snacks this holiday season.
Experiences are the gift that keeps on giving! With a day pass or season passes (on sale now for the 2021 season) you’ll not only be gifting a warm summer day to look forward to but countless memories too! Check out their deals this weekend.
Looking to check the fashionista off your list? Make a stop at Uptown Cheapskate to find the latest fashions for a fraction of the price. These deals are as affordable as they are environmentally friendly so it’s a win-win! After all, as they say at Uptown “Resale is the king of sustainability.” Spend a day browsing for the perfect gift and maybe drop off some of your own styles while you are at it!
Give the gift of the “Thirst Experience” and the lucky recipient is sure to leave happier than they arrived! Everybody will be able to find a happy treat and a drink to brighten their day at Thirst with an expansive menu of sodas, flavors, cookies, and more! Pick up a gift card or two and a drink for you! Did we mention they have pretzel bites? You can thank us later!
In the quarantine craziness of 2020, we found ourselves binging shows like Tidying Up and the Home Edit before looking at our homes (which we have spent more time in than ever) and seeing all of the projects we’d like to check off the list! Give the gift of organization this season by purchasing a gift card for an organization session with Eccles Alumna McElle Zuro just in time for the New Year!
