What a fun time of year! Gift giving is just as good for the giver as it is for the recipient, and shopping locally is a gift that keeps on giving to even more people, as it benefits mom-and-pop shops, your friends and neighbors who work locally, and the local economy. There are so many people we have on our gift list–family and friends, co-workers, teachers, service providers, and more–we’d better get started early!
