Best Local Holiday Gift Idea for Grown-Ups

Got someone special in your life for the holidays and want to show them how much they make your heart warm during the cold winter nights? The Local Store (205 N. Dewey St., Eau Claire), has you covered with beautiful and unique gift baskets. If something a bit flashy is on his or her list, hop downtown to Token Jewelry (106 W. Grand Ave., Eau Claire) and be amazed at the jewelry they make by hand in their historic, restored building from 1886. Another great handmade jewelry option is Hello Adorn (312 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire), where their incredible team members also donate their time once a month to local organizations in need as part of the company’s mission statement of giving back to the community. –Sheng Yang
