Buying gifts for the holiday season for those you care about on a college budget can be difficult. I know most of us eat noodles for dinner and pilfer food from the dining center. I find that during the holiday season, I like to buy from local or small businesses and support them instead of large corporations. I love to buy from Etsy because nearly everything is handmade and from small businesses.
