Finding the Perfect Holiday Gift
It’s a known fact that small businesses help boost the economy so why not find the perfect holiday gift for the whole family in one of our several shops. Many of the stores have unique products that wouldn’t normally be found in a big box store. November 24 is Small Business Saturday so grab some friends and head to the shops of Greater Burlington!
A warm stocking hat, scarf and gloves would make the perfect present for the ladies and can be found at Gypsi, Original Cyns or Melissa’s. Want something a little out of the box for that special someone? Try out Weird Harold’s Records where you’ll find anything from vintage records to calming incense.
The Iowa Store has wonderful Christmas ornaments including the famous Snake Alley and you can’t forget to pick up Sterzing potato chips, which make great stocking stuffers! For that baker in the family a new cookbook from Burlington By The Book would be ideal.
Any creative art lovers on your list? The Art Center or Heritage Center have many interesting pieces and handmade jewelry for purchase. Otherwise bring the artsy friend along and have their gift be a DIY project night at Pinned It Creations.
Maybe your special someone is looking for some diamonds! Becker’s Jewelers offers a collection of many styles and makes every customer feel at home.
To complete the successful gift shopping day, why not treat yourself with a hot cocoa and a chance to see the Lighted Holiday Parade! It's a very special evening in Downtown Burlington that will truly get you into the holiday spirit - especially when you see Santa Claus coming down the lane. Also, there is sure to be a holiday movie playing at the Westland Mall Theatre for the whole family to enjoy.
