VegasNews.com’s Local Gift Guide for 2020

The holidays are always a special time. We put our hectic schedules on pause, spend time with our families, show appreciation to our loved ones, reflect on the past year, and set goals for the upcoming year.

But this year is different. 

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many may choose to stay home this holiday season. In lieu of spending time together in physical spaces, gift-giving will become more important than ever.

While the pandemic is still taking its toll, small businesses are struggling and need our support more than ever. This holiday season, we are reinforcing the importance of shopping small.

We discovered that some of the best presents come in small (business) packages. Shop local this year: delight your recipient, boost the local economy, have more fun shopping than at the mall, and earn indie cred when sharing the item’s artisan origin. 

Put away your Prime account, and discover the special gems you can find at these independent retailers ahead.
