With Christmas around the corner, it's time to start thinking about gifts for those on your list. Whether you go for a classic or something more unique will depend on both the person and on your relationship together. Now more than ever before, it's so important to do your best and shop locally. Purchasing from a small business owner could make all the difference.
Here are five gift ideas that'll show others how much you appreciate them:
Wine or Tea/Coffee
These are classic gift options because people love them. Find something that most people will enjoy; you can opt to pick up a gift card, or pick up some key items and create a basket filled with goodies.
Cozy Drink Mixes & Candles
Think 'cuddling up on the couch while there's an ice storm outside' and you can't go wrong. Pair a blanket with some thoughtful ceramic mugs and flavored hot drink mixes, and a candle; with the cold weather on the way, they'll love it.
Chocolates. Cookies. Cupcakes... enough said, right? If you want to go the extra mile, add a personalized spin to a sweet treat, such as a written cake with a special message, or cookies that are decorated with the gift recipient's favorite band, artist, book characters, pets, or other theme.

Gift Cards & Subscriptions
Are there certain stores you love shopping at? Are there clubs or subscriptions you enjoy receiving on a regular basis? Why not gift something to your clients that you would love to receive? This could include anything from Scribd or Audible (audio books), Headspace (meditation app) or a "box of the month" subscription for different foods, wines, or hobbies.
