Lake Country Holiday Shopping + Gift Guide 2018

The holidays are coming! It is time to start your holiday shopping. Christmas will be here before we know it! All year we talk about supporting small + local. We feel the same way during the holidays, even more so. We are blessed to live in a community with so many local shops, boutiques + stores whether they are brick + mortar or have an online presence. When you shop locally, you are keep your dollars in the community. When you support small business you are making one person, a real person do a happy dance, not a big chain CEO. You are helping their families in such a big way with even the smallest purchase. Each season The Lake Country Mom features small + local businesses in our annual holiday guide!

So when you start your shopping this season, use our guide as a tool to follow, take the time to check out each business, learn about who they are and what they have to offer. Visit their website, follow along on their social media outlets, and visit their locations.

Hartland Candles & Soaps
