Ok, we all know that supply chain issues are a real thing this year AND we also know our local economies rely on us to survive even the best of years. So, I decided that this year I was going to create a regular Holiday Gift Guide along with an Upstate New York gift guide to support my local community. This gift guide is meant to help you not only shop local but also support local businesses and hopefully find some fun and exciting products, services & experiences locally.
Books & Local Goods
Books, Puzzles, etc. from The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza

Food & Beverages
You can buy gift cards, local items (like cider, cookies, bread, etc.) or merchandise from these local restaurants and shops. Maybe you could even make a gift basket with items from each of these places.
