The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is Almost Here….

As I said in my blog from last Friday, I love shopping at small businesses and helping people I know start their business by buying things to give as gifts.  One of the best parts of shopping small is that the gifts are typically extremely unique and the receiver is usually very excited to get something different and fun.  I think it helps to spread the word about small businesses when you gift items from them.  Summit has some amazing little boutiques that have great gifts.  I was getting my passport photo the other day and came across a store that had such a cute gifts for all occasions, which gave me the idea for this blog post…

That being said, here are some ideas for items that I think would make fun gifts, for a few different events or for the holidays…
