It is so important to support our small businesses, year round! With holiday season in full swing, it is even more important to be supporting our local businesses. Whether you need a hostess gift, a bottle of wine or a gift certificate for one of your friends, there are so many ways to support a local business.

One of my favorite Southern Willow Market, where you can shop their beautiful home decor and the fresh flower market. You can create your own arrangement or they can make one for you. Pair this with one of their locally made candles and you have the perfect gift for anyone.

Is it just me or do we all feel better when we have a glowing tan? Head on over to Blush & Glow Studio to grab a gift certificate for one of their spray tans. Amanda is so talented and has such an amazing team of girls. They are all very professional and always make you feel welcome. She is the best in town!

What is a party without wine? Am I right or am I right? Maybe you’re on the way to a dinner party and need something to take… a bottle of wine is always a good idea. White Horse in Surrey Center has an incredible selection. The staff is very knowledgeable and can help you pick something everyone will enjoy. My favorite is Three Finger Jack!

Now, you’ve got gifts & wine but what about you? Ever After Beauty & Bridal Suite has their very own Blow Dry Bar. I mean, this is genius! You can schedule an appointment on the way to your party so you will show up feeling FABULOUS! They also offer gift certificates and memberships to their Blow Dry Bar as well. Amy & Avery are the perfect team and have designed such a beautiful set up in their salon. If you are in need of a stylist, please go see them!

Keep these businesses in mind while shopping whether it be for yourself, a co-worker or friend. Maybe you’re looking for something not on the list above… I would love for you to reach out! I would be happy to help you SHOP LOCAL. Your friends will definitely be impressed! Be sure to tell them Sweet & Sassy Apron sent you!
