Our holiday celebrations are sure to look different this year. We may not be gathering in large groups. I doubt many of us have office parties. Throngs won't pack the stores on Black Friday. Heck, many of us are just looking forward to putting 2020 in our past.
But perhaps you do want to take the time to remind those you love of their importance in your life, and what better way to do that than with a gift? Whether it's something to tell your parents you wish you could see them more, a gift to entertain your kids so you will see them less or a present for a teacher or caregiver, whom you now realize is worth their weight in ... chocolate? bath bombs? candles? We've got you covered. Our holiday gift guide has ideas for nearly 300 gifts, and most of them are from locally owned stores or local artisans selling online. That's something to celebrate.
So grab your morning coffee (or wine, we don't judge), and peruse our pages. We hope you will find something for everyone on your list on our List.
