Times are tricky for just about everybody right now, but local businesses are especially vulnerable to certain setbacks, like, say, a global pandemic. The good news: it’s easy and fun to support them. We have compiled a list of ten creative entrepreneurs, whose products make great gifts. This time: The Lekker Company.

The Lekker Company started in 2014 as a Pinterest hobby at Dewi van de Waeter’s kitchen table in Utrecht: she loved making her own beauty products to avoid all the chemicals in store-bought versions. Nowadays, her company focuses solely on vegan deodorant, in a little paper jar, full of natural ingredients. Good for your body and the planet.
