Gifts and souvenirs are items that some of us shop for year-round. We like to associate a memento with a special visit, we want to share with others, and we plan ahead for holidays, special occasions, bridal party gifts, milestone birthdays and anniversaries, or simply for no specific reason.
Handcrafted gifts, from chocolates to wine to artwork, are all part of the scene, and in many cases, you can watch as the product is made. Weekly farmers’ markets, boutiques and galleries, and coffee shops are a few places you’ll find gifts and goodies to take home.
Many shops are currently offering appointments or browse-and-buy options, with curbside pickup, for safe shopping.
