holiday season local gift ideas.

I can't believe I'm typing this...but Halloween is over and now Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. I've never really been a "holiday gift giver."  I get that giving gifts is a kind and thoughtful thing to do, however sometimes I think the expectation of getting gifts for everyone you know can become stressful and take away from the real reason for the season (and put a dent in your pocket book!)


This year, I'm hoping to spread the holiday cheer and give gifts that I love + support the local businesses that I love. Throughout the month of November, I have a few blog posts to share about gift ideas that you can buy right here in North Iowa, or even make yourself.

And conveniently, these are all things I myself love. So stay tuned for some gift giving ideas!

Do you buy local gifts for your friends and family? What do you buy?
