Holiday Gift-Giving Guide

Shop Local This Holiday Season

Shopping is a big part of the holiday season, when families and friends gather to reconnect and exchange gifts. While the popularity of shopping online has grown, we challenge you this year to pause and put down your credit card before adding items to your Amazon cart. Why not support local businesses instead? Buying online is not typically eco-friendly or timely. Also, when you shop locally, you are putting money back into the community. You can feel satisfied with the fact that you’ve redirected your own hard-earned money into the hands of other hard-working local business owners. These people are grateful to you for your business because it makes a difference. They rely on your purchases to pay staff, cover rent and put food on the table for their own families.

We searched for unique and fun products from the area to put in our Holiday Gift-Giving Guide. Surprise your loved ones with something from this list—or circle your favorite items and leave the magazine conveniently opened to this page so that they can surprise you.
