Six Reasons to Shop Small

As we savor the lingering flavors of turkey leftovers and embrace the festive spirit of the Christmas/Holiday Season, the whirlwind of shopping events is upon us. Black Friday has left its mark, Shop Small Saturday is here, and Cyber Monday is just around the corner. In the midst of this season's advertising avalanche, we'd like to propose a suggestion that extends beyond the holidays: #shopsmall.

While Small Business Saturday is traditionally promoted on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we invite you to consider supporting small businesses throughout the entire year. Why? Because many of us in the realm of small businesses are driven by a profound passion for what we do and a genuine desire to fulfill a recognized need. It's often about more than just financial gain. Don't get us wrong; the dollars matter because they put food on our tables. Yet, we're not in it to amass great wealth; we find joy in making a meaningful impact on people's lives.

Here at Perfectly Preemie, this sentiment holds true. We are a close-knit family-owned business, comprising Cressie (Mom), Kevin (Husband), Melissa (daughter), and Rachael (team member). Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of preemie parents and their families. Additionally, we contribute to our community by supporting local NICUs and various support groups throughout the year with donations of caps and clothing.

As we embark on this season of giving, we want to share six compelling reasons to consider the #shopsmall ethos. 


  1. Small businesses give back (more) to the community.
  2. They provide great customer service.
  3. They create a sense of community.
  4. They make a major economic impact.
  5. They offer one-of-a-kind items.
  6. It feels good.

Please let us know if there's anything we can assist you with during this festive season. Wishing you a Very Happy Holiday Season!
