2020 has been hard on everyone, especially small businesses. You can make a difference by shopping small.
When you shop with Gravel, you are supporting three little families. We are SO grateful for you.
But don’t stop here! We’ve put together a list of our favorite small businesses that you can support this holiday season.
The Luma Bottle was created by someone who is passionate about the fight against plastic bottles. He was inspired to create a reusable bottle that didn't stink after a week of using it for water. After some research, trial and error he came up with the Luma Bottle: a reusable water bottle that integrated UVC light technology to clean the bottle and purify water.
These make great gifts for pretty much anyone in your life!

Fawn Design was started by a rad mom named Jenny. She exemplifies small business in all aspects and we are so proud to call her our friend.
She found the niche of functional and stylish diaper bags, fixing an industry problem that blew the market wide open. Fawn Design makes super high quality bags for all stages of having children and beyond.
Tristen Ikaika Rings
Our friend Tristen started making rings when he was 12 YEARS OLD. Since then, his rings have sold out multiple times. Every ring is made by him personally, so you know it's going to be GREAT. There are too many cool ones to pick from, so we will let you pick your favorite (I like the Daisy one, myself).

These are a fun take on traditional building blocks. Each one is different giving kids a challenge and a chance to work out their brains.
They are child-safe and super eco- friendly! Rock Blocks use and make eco-friendly and non-toxic natural dyes to give exquisite color to the blocks. Their colors come from Milk Paint, which is a more eco-friendly and non-toxic alternative to regular acrylic paints you find on wooden products. So you can let the play without worry!
Forget your layers at home! Blanc Shirts are the new smart layer that you never knew you needed. Their world-class patented carbon fiber threading is lightweight and gives you maximum range of movement.
This traveling family created the goods for families that they didn’t see in the world. Their goal is to change the idea that you can’t travel with kids or that traveling with kids is difficult until they are older.
With families of our own, this is a company we love supporting!
