After the chaos that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there comes Small Business Saturday. The perfect chance to acquaint yourself with smaller brands that create lovely products for your home. While Small Business Saturday was last weekend in the US, it's this coming weekend (December 3rd) in the UK. Not that the dates really matter — any day is a good day to support a small biz.

Though they might not have the same reach, this list of home products will make you wish you'd come across these small brands sooner. We'll be the first to say that we actually prefer uncovering unique finds from lesser-known companies. Straying from the mainstream leads to a home that looks much cooler and is full of personality. You'll find pretty vase toppers, punchy art prints, and tiled side tables for adding a pop of color to your space.

Whether you're gift shopping for your friends or yourself, meet the cool brands worth saving to your notes. To celebrate the season, many are giving out discount codes, too. Support small now (and every day after) by shopping these picks that we're certainly not leaving in our carts.

Global Editor in Chief

Why hello! I'm Melissa, and as the Global Editor in Chief of Real Homes, my aim is to help our community design homes that feel authentic, real, and functional. Though we all love aspirational images and celebrity houses, my team and I are motivated to create content that makes sense for your lifestyle, needs, and interests, whether you own a home, rent an apartment, share a space with your parents, or live in a cozy converted van. I myself am a renter and am constantly seeking out ways to personalize my home – which is, as many people know, a more challenging task than it sounds. When I'm not editing home content, I'm usually staring at birds through binoculars, curled up with a good book, or devouring a new flavor of ice cream.
