10 Queer Businesses to Support This Christmas (and Year-Round) - Holiday Gift Guide 2020

Posted by Katrina Darwin on

With everything that is happening in 2020, it is even more important than ever to support small businesses and help keep these small shops thriving. I have created a series of Holiday Gift Guides to show off some of my favorite small businesses, and this gift guide is dedicated to Queer-owned shops. I am only featuring shops in this list that are openly queer as to not accidentally out anyone, and although the shops are all queer-owned, the products they sell may not be specifically queer (ie. pronoun pins). Some products are, but this list is to specifically highlight queer-owned shops and bring attention to those incredible people. 

Note: All of the opinions of these products and shops are completely my own, I am not being paid to promote any of these products or shops and none of the links are affiliate links. I make no money by sharing these businesses, I am sharing these in order to bring more attention to some incredible shops and hopefully spread the love for small businesses. 

1) The Pin Prick

If you are a fan of minimal pride flag pins, this is the shop for you to check out. Made by a queer designer, all of these pins are small and minimalistic, making it easy to show off your pride in every outfit.

2) Snow Rabbit Co. 

Snow Rabbit Co. is a company that was founded on the basis of wanting to provide an alternative  to pop-culture inspired casual- and street-wear to what is currently on the market.
