Black Friday.  Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. Whatever the day, it's clearly time to start shopping for all those unique individuals on your holiday gift list!  I've partnered with Rachael from The Local Squirrel in Cameron Village to feature some of my FAVORITE gift ideas! Her store is a one-stop shop for just about everyone on your list! She has carefully curated a fabulous collection of unique and special gift items in a wide range of prices. Everything from jewelry, home wares, clothing, art and much more by local area artists as well as small businesses from all over the USA.
