Gift Guide 2018

Give them gifts they really want.


⇓ Article continues below ⇓

There’s a temptation as the holidays approach to quickly open your Amazon app and start adding things to your cart until you’ve checked everyone off your list.

But that’s risky. After all, how many times have we received those gifts in the mail and been less than pleased because they were two sizes too small or made of the itchiest fabric? Not to mention the impersonal nature of buying that way. This year, we gathered a carefully curated selection of hand-picked gifts you can find locally, and we’ve broken them into handy categories (like foodie and fitness fanatic) for easy shopping. Because your loved ones deserve more than one click.
