HOLLY LOVES...

Original Gifts

I’ve always believed that presents shouldn’t just be practical. They should touch the heart. Delight the imagination. Conjure up cuddles. And that’s exactly what small businesses do. Each one here has been carefully selected for their originality, quality and talent. Plus when you give a gift from an independent business, you’re giving a gift twice. Once to whoever you’re buying it for, but also once to the person whose life you’re changing by shopping with them. And that’s the greatest gift of all.
