Holiday Gift Guide 2020: Shop Local•
Posted on December 09 2020
This year the holidays are looking very different. The City is on it’s second lockdown, so the distance and opportunity to see family and friends in person is still on hold. However, utilize this holiday to show and remind your loved ones how much you love and appreciate their presence in your life. During this time, small businesses have been affected greatly, and are now losing out on their best months for the holidays. We encourage everyone to shop local this holiday and make your giftee and shop owners happy. We have compiled a list of some of our favourite products from some of our favourite fellow small businesses!
Giving gift cards used to be faux pas but this year, people will really appreciate it! Buy a gift card from a local business with an online shop that you know your friends love. This will allow people to get what they really need this holiday while also supporting your community. The gift card will never expire and it will provide cash flow local business owners need during this strained time.
