Local shops offer holiday cheer and the perfect gift or compliment to a holiday party! This past Saturday I spent the day with my daughter shopping for the perfect gifts while also picking up some much needed items for our family Christmas this year. We are hosting my sister and her family for a small family dinner, and I picked up some delicious food items as well! 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. And remember, support local and mask up! These are the awesome purchases:

Oh, I love the holidays! While our holidays in 2020 won't look the same during this time of COVID, I'm still finding joy in picking out the perfect gifts for loved ones. I'm already planning for 2021 and the fun holiday parties I can host again. The holidays are a time to be merry!
