Shopping for gifts during this holiday season will undoubtedly be different, as is virtually everything in this unprecedented year. But it is crucial to our beloved independent local businesses that we give them support. In spending time thinking of things to make your dearest people smile, let’s try to shop our values and make our community smile, too. Each year, Arbus Magazine presents our Shop Local Gift Guide so that you can see what locally owned businesses are offering and be inspired to enjoy the adventure of in-person shopping. This year, many businesses are offering online or telephone purchases that can be brought to your car, making shopping safe. We are presenting this year’s gift ideas as ornaments on a dazzling tree because that’s how we see them—shining examples of local wares that are distinctive, special, and unique. Enjoy browsing through the following pages and soak in the tradition and sparkle of the season.
Be safe, be well. Happy holidays from Arbus!
