Support local this Christmas
As another Christmas draws near and we start thinking about buying gifts for our loved ones, you might be wondering what the heck to buy for that hard to buy for friend or relative.
We can so easily shop from virtually anywhere in the world now with the click of a button.
But this holiday season, maybe it’s time to think about shopping a bit closer to home and support the local businesses around you.
Here are some suggestions of ways you can support local this Christmas:
Eating out in the lead up to Christmas? Why not support that local restaurant or café that you keep meaning to go to around the corner from your house?
Chance are it’s run by a local family, or young person following their dreams. And if you like it or love it, why not buy a gift voucher for someone as a present or give them some review love online.
For the physical presents, see if you can shop within a 5km radius of where you live.
You can support the local nursery, gift shops and even the locally run supermarkets, greengrocers and independent wine shops. You will get personalised service and will be supporting the local community and economy.
Give the gift of experience:
Why not give the gift of experience by either taking someone you love out somewhere local for an experience or dining or take a holiday somewhere in your own backyard?
It could be a quick getaway for a weekend or a day trip to one of the local wine regions.
When you shop local, you ensure that you are supporting local entrepreneurs, you'll find unique gifts for your loved ones to enjoy and you will help support and build communities.
