This is a special edition of our Holiday Gift Guide – where we are specifically featuring as many Jewish Woman Owned Business (hereto referred as JWOB ✡ or JOB ✡ – Jewish owned business) as possible due to the horrific rise of antisemitism globally. For 25 years on GirlieGirl Army we have been featuring marginalized voices and businesses in our gift guide, now it’s time to spotlight the smallest minority in the world, our own people. We will note which items are giveback’s to our people or Israel in the posts. Any amazon purchase made via the links in this guide support a JWOB ✡— GirlieGirl Army! We are amazon affiliates and receive a small percentage of any sales made via our amazon links below, or our storefront – also filled with thousands of gift ideas! Proceeds are used exclusively to support our mission to promote Jewish Joy! So every purchase below will support Am Yisroel Chai! There a few non Jewish brands included who were pre-selected for our annual guide, and who are allies.
