We here at Military Moms Blog know that moms are usually the ones purchasing the holiday gifts for everyone from teachers to grandparents to your favorite barista. It’s not always easy to find each and every person a gift. On top of that, many of us just moved to new cities, states and even countries. Some of us don’t even know the language where we are living, let alone where to shop to find that perfect gift!
In an effort to take a little bit of that stress off of your plate and to encourage you to shop small and support some really amazing companies, Military Moms Blog has put together our first holiday gift guide!
From creating jobs for indigenous women in Panama (Luna Blu Mar), to encouraging girls to decide just what it means to be girly (Princess Awesome), each of these brands is doing something truly inspiring for women and families. Plus, these companies all have an online presence, so you can shop from the comfort of your couch.
