DIY: Homemade gifts come from the heart, whether they be masterpieces or works-in-progress the time and effort spent will be appreciated

Give a Charitable Donation in the Recipient’s Name:  Is there a cause they’re behind?  Give a gift to that organization in their name.

Shop Local:  Many fantastic small businesses can be found throughout Santa Cruz.  Think local first!

Upcycled Gifts:  More and more new creations are being made from old materials in an effort to keep waste out of our landfills.  Handbags made from banners, flip flops from scooter tires, wetsuits to yoga mats. You name it!

Gift Cards:  Know their favorite local shop?  A gift card will allow them to buy exactly what they want and avoid any costly returns or waste while also supporting a local business.
