Supporting local businesses during the holiday season is a wonderful way to contribute to your community. Here are some ideas for supporting local businesses in our area:

Shop Local:

  • Prioritize local shops when doing your holiday shopping. Look for unique gifts and items that showcase the character of the region.
  • Explore local markets, craft fairs, and pop-up shops to discover handmade and locally produced goods.

Dine at Local Restaurants:

  • Choose local restaurants for holiday gatherings, takeout, or catering services.
  • Consider purchasing gift cards to local eateries as presents for friends and family.

Attend Local Events:

  • Participate in community events and festivals. Many communities organize special holiday markets or parades during the season.

Visit Farmers’ Markets:

  • Support local farmers and artisans by shopping at farmers’ markets. You can find fresh produce, handmade crafts, and unique gifts.

Gift Local Services:

  • Consider gifting services from local businesses, such as spa treatments, salon services, or fitness classes.

Book Local Accommodations:

  • If you have friends or family visiting, recommend local bed and breakfasts, hotels, or vacation rentals.

Collaborate with Local Artists:

  • Purchase artwork, crafts, or other creations from local artists. Many communities have galleries or art shows where you can find one-of-a-kind gifts.

Support Local Breweries and Wineries:

  • If you enjoy beverages, explore local breweries and wineries. Purchase locally brewed beer or wine for holiday celebrations.

Give the Gift of Local Experiences:

  • Instead of physical gifts, consider giving experiences such as tickets to local attractions, concerts, or theater performances.

Spread the Word:

  • Use social media and word of mouth to promote local businesses. Share your positive experiences and encourage others to shop locally.


  • Offer your time to local charities or community events. Many businesses and organizations need extra help during the holiday season.

Create Local Gift Baskets:

  • Put together gift baskets using products from local businesses. This could include local snacks, treats, and handmade items.

Remember, the key is to be intentional about where you spend your money, choosing local options whenever possible. Small efforts collectively make a significant impact on the local economy and community, which benefits us all!
