We are so excited to share our first annual Paper & Practice Holiday Gift Guide! Below you’ll find products Grace & I have selected from small businesses that inspire us with their creative products. We also opened submissions to you all to complete our list, so there are a few select winners included as well!

Thank you to all who submitted products, we were so inspired by the creativity and hard work that went into these exceptional products. We love small business because there is so much heart put into the work & we want to recognize that with the platform we have here at Paperandpractice.com.
