Just Because I Love RVA & Supporting Small Business!

RVA is filled with amazing small businesses perfect for gifting! I’d love to support all of them, but for now here is a list of just a few of these great Virginia finds. Chosen by me for no reason other than I love what they have to offer! Many of these small businesses create beautiful, handmade, unique items that anyone would love to receive as a gift.
I hope you enjoy this local Holiday Gift Guide! And why not treat yourself while you’re at it?

Even if you don’t purchase anything, you can still support these businesses just by giving them a like, comment or mentioning them to someone else.

Because now, more than ever, local businesses need our support.

Tina Take My Photo has not been compensated by any of the above businesses. I’ve hand chosen each link in this gift guide purely because I love the products and want to spread some love and awareness for local small businesses like myself during the Holiday Season.

If you are a local business that would like to be included in my online gift guide, let’s talk! I would love to know more about your services and products

Or, if you would like to let me know about another amazing small business, please let me know! I would love to keep the list going and support more Virginia businesses.
