Shopping Guide — Buy Local this Holiday Season!

As the Holiday season approaches, you might be in the market for a unique gift for the special people in your life: something unique and pleasantly surprising to them. It’s hard to know what people already have, be they co-workers you’ve been assigned as a Secret Gift-Giver for, parents, siblings, friends, or a significant other. As a solution, we suggest: buying local and buying indie.

Buying local can help ensure your money stays within the local community, ensuring that everyone in your region has the money to properly enjoy the holiday season worry-free. Cash remaining within its local infrastructure is the backbone of making sure an economy stays stable and strong. But, on a more fun note, buying indie makes for a greater chance that the item you’re purchasing will be new to the person you’re buying it for! Rather than trying to covertly sneak a peek at their bookshelf or find a way to get information out of family and friends, you can rest assured that locally bought, independently-produced titles will be new and exciting reads to whomever you’re giving them to! 🙂

Below we’ve compiled a list of items best-suited for the different people in your life! 🙂
