2017 Holiday Gift Guide to Small Businesses in and around Duluth

2017 Holiday Gift Guide to Small Businesses in and around Duluth | Duluth Moms Blog

Television commercials and Lifetime Channel movies always make the holidays appear to be stress-free. Moms have perfect manicures and make perfect turkeys. Everyone exchanges intricately wrapped and trimmed gifts. Reality looks a little different, right? You think that mani/pedi gift card you got for Mother’s Day is somewhere in your junk drawer, your bird is still semi-frozen, and you scratched out a few previous names on a saved gift bag and plopped in a present (tissue paper optional).

We see you, mama. You’re doing your best and we’re here to help relieve some of pressures of gift-giving. We are THRILLED to bring you the 2017 Holiday Gift Guide so you can shop local at small businesses in and around Duluth. Find resources for clothing,  jewelry, toys, sweets, and even year long subscriptions, memberships, and experiences. Grab a friend, sneak out without the littles, and enjoy a wintery Duluth day shopping for everyone on your list.

A special shout out to our generous partners, Duluth Microblading Studio and Glensheen for making this guide possible.  While this is a sponsored post, all ideas are 100% our own!
