Michele Towne, owner/publisher – Colonial Wines & Spirits 

“Who doesn’t love a fantastic bottle of wine? Colonial is a great spot for a hostess gift or Christmas gift for the person who has everything. The staff is so knowledgeable about all of the different wines and champagnes they offer. You can tell them what a person typically drinks and a price range you want to spend and they can direct you with several choices. They also have have tons of stocking stuffers.”

Kim Meyer-Webb, editor – Full Moon

Full Moon offers unique gifts that are sure to delight! Whether it’s a gift to get (LOVE James Hayes glass) or give, the selection is perfect.”

Heather Buckley, art director – Museum of Discovery
The Museum of Discovery has unique toys and gifts that are both entertaining and educational – for kids and adults!”

Ferrell Bonner, production manager – Box Turtle

“Box Turtle gives everyone the perfect reason to shop local! With a wide selection of home goods, jewelry, clothes and goofy gifts, they are my number one stop for holiday presents – and I always end up snagging something for myself. BONUS: They have a rotating troop of furry friends to keep you company.”

Barrett Gay, features and social media editor – Mrs. Polka Dot

“Personalized gifts are always in style. Get the perfect coat, tote, robe (and more) at Mrs. Polka Dot, and then make it uniquely yours! Monogrammed gifts work for anyone in the family, and they make the gift one-of-a-kind.”

Shelly Chapel, sales executive – B. Barnett 

“From high-end luxury gifts to stocking stuffers, B.Barnett has gifts that fit any budget. Makeup, skincare, clothing and shoes – you’ll certainly find what you need from your list.”

Leah Foster, sales executive – Heifer International

“Heifer International has so many unique gifts handmade by artisans from all over the world. I really love their Charitable Gifts catalog. Where else can you give the gift of livestock to a remote village, send a girl to school, or gift a healthy home to a family in need? This time of year, we need to especially think of others and take time to give where it’s needed most.”

Happy holidays and happy shopping!
