"The lights are lit. The cookies are made. The stockings are hung by the chimney with care. But the base of the Christmas tree is looking a little bare. Haven’t quite found that holiday inspiration? Don’t worry, we found it for you – locally.
Shopping local is trendy, but it’s possible to take personalized gift buying a step further to buy items made locally, as well.
