Last year, I made a holiday gift guide featuring all female owned Virginia based businesses  HERE! It was one of my favorite posts to create and I couldn’t let another holiday season go by without making another version!

Without further ado, here is another batch of local women who are making amazing and beautiful creations that are must have items on your shopping list this year!

Laura’s Botanicals is a RVA owned company where everything is made in small batches. Laura is knowledgeable and uses a whole plant approach and favors the gentle action of whole plants.
