IMG_3282Local shops offer holiday cheer and the perfect gift or compliment to a holiday party!  Yesterday I  spent the day out with some friends shopping for the perfect gifts while also picking up some much needed items for our holiday party my husband and I are hosting this weekend. I got all our Christmas shopping done at local shops and I feel so thankful I got everyone crossed off my family's list.  I would like to share my great buys, and maybe it will inspire you to head out and finish your shopping at our great local businesses. These are the awesome purchases:
  • Scott Frankenberger decorative porcelain pitcher from Interior Objects for my mother who collects his pieces
  • A clay baking dish from the Artists’ Own Gallery for my Aunt Sally, the baker of the family
  • Purdue t-shirt for my brother, a Purdue Grad, at University Spirit
  • Candy Canes for everyone’s stockings from McCord Candies
