Shop local and support our local businesses this holiday season. Check out this list of unique holiday gift ideas from our recent holiday family shopping!

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 have everyone crossed off my family's list. I would like to share my fun and unique buys, and maybe it will inspire you to head out and finish your shopping at our great local businesses. And remember, shop and support local! These are the awesome purchases:
