As we enter December, the holiday season is in full swing around us! From Christmas carols on the radio, to decorations in stores, and sales upon sales being advertised, there is no escaping the holiday spirit! While many people prefer to shop online, holiday shopping is a great opportunity to support local, small businesses. Here are some of our favorite local businesses and unique gift ideas for this holiday season!
Looking for great stocking stuffers or gifts for friends on your list? Get everything from hair products, beauty products, or gift certificates for hair service at St. Germain Studio in Providence. They carry boutique hair products, and have a long list of services for both men and women. Shop the salon or book online at stgermainstudio.com
A night out to the movies is something people of all ages can enjoy. A movie gift certificate to see the newest flick would be a hit among anyone on your Christmas list. Wrap it up in a DIY movie basket with some popcorn, candy, and soda and let your gift recipient pick the movie. Check out your local theatre for gift options.
