Longhand Pencils Holiday Gift Guide

This year, shopping small is even MORE important. With our time and $$, we can support real people in real communities, instead of putting more money into the pockets of big-shot box store owners. (*cough* Jeff Bezos *cough*). If you’re looking for a cute stocking stuffer, a one-of-a-kind surprise, or a way to gift while donating to causes, look no further. Here are great gift ideas for everyone in your life. Yes, everyone.
