My Ultimate AKIU Holiday Gift Guide is here jut in time for Black Friday shopping! And just like that 2020 is over! This year has been and done the most and I think we owe it to ourselves to celebrate both the big and small wins like having made it through. And what not a better way to celebrate than to shower ourselves (yes because self care and love are equally important) and loved ones with items and gestures that make us show our appreciation than through this gift guide. The guide has everything for everyone; from local home grown small businesses to foodie favorites. I also have blogger and content creators covered by sharing exactly what I use to create content such as my camera, lens, tripod and my favorite backdrop. Let me stop wasting your time.
