Are you looking for a perfect gift for family and friends this holiday season, but haven’t got a clue where to start? Check out The Local Store’s thoughtful gift baskets with options ranging from beer and cheese baskets to games and activities baskets for the kiddos. “This year, shopping local is more important than ever,” said Lindsey Quinnies, The Local Store’s manager. “Small, local businesses depend on their community first for both the financial support to come out on the other side of this pandemic and the morale boost to keep fighting another day.” Prices range from $25 to $107, and baskets can be shipped directly to your loved ones for a COVID-friendly holiday surprise. Some of our personal favorites include the Sweet Treats set ($30), the Sawdust City Snack Pack ($30), Cozy Night In ($49), Sweet Aromas ($25), or the classic Self-Care set ($55). You can also build your own online or in-store using a sweet Wisconsin-shaped basket. Throw in a few extra goodies from your favorite Chippewa Valley shops, and you’re good to go for the holidays! “Hopefully we can make this holiday season as fun and stress-free as possible while helping you support local makers,” Quinnies said. “Stop in to see all that this community has to offer.”
