It’s no joke that this year has been difficult. I don’t even need to explain….I know you get it. So, in order to help out my clients, friends, family, and supporters, I’ve decided to create five gift guides this holiday season. These are intended to give your brain a break, show support to my fellow Youngstown small businesses, and to garner a little bit of creativity for your Christmas morning.
If you know anything about me, it’s that I love my dogs. Keiko and Archie are my children and I jokingly always say they have more toys than human children….but fact of the matter is that it’s probably true! I am sure it’s no surprise, then, that my first gift guide of this year is geared towards the happy, bundles of joy we call dogs. These are items that I have found online via local business websites, located right here in the Youngstown area. I am not affiliated with these businesses (except my own), and have gathered these recommendations based off of what I would (and probably will) purchase my own furbabies for Christmas this year. So, I hope they may be of help to you!
If nothing else, please support our local businesses this year by shopping small. Big box stores can and will survive without your purchases, but our small business friends may not. I challenge you to shop small entirely this year! How fun, and helpful to local families, will that be?
I’ll be back tomorrow with another gift guide! Until then - continue reading to see the ways you can spoil your precious little pooch for under $50! Links for purchasing are below the images - click on them to be taken directly to the small businesses website so you don't even have to leave your couch! ;-)
