Thinking about what gifts to get for the Holidays?

Start your Holiday shopping early and forget about the crowds and long lines! Here are some great gift ideas for Christmas, Hanukkah or even Birthday's that won't break the bank!

It's that time of year again, where the Holidayss start creeping up on us. If you're like me, then you also wait until the very last week to do all your Holiday shopping.  But hopefully not this year!

I have some great gift ideas, whether it's for Hanukkah, Christmas or Birthday's!  Check out some of these amazing ideas that won't break the bank and you can feel good about buying, because it was all made locally!

Carissa Black Bags are beautiful! Carissa has some new products that are definitely eye catching and will make everybody wonder where you bought it! I love the back pack Carissa has created, her reversible stylish belt and Newsprint Pocket Book!  Go to www.buylocallyCT.com and under "Shop by Category" look for "Hand Bags."  Carissa Black in Monroe is extremely talented. If you have a certain look in mind, email Carissa and she'll create a bag to match perfectly with any alfit.

Want another great gift idea that won't break the bank? Then you have to look at "Sunroom Herbals" products. All Natural, herbal remedies that help heal our skin in a healthy, non chemical fashion. I personally love the "Chill Zone Oil," place a few drops on your wrist or temples and the soothing aroma will help you relax and relieve the stresses of daily life. Diane's "Aching Everything" Salve is a must have in all households! This salve does everything just as the name implies! Rub a little on and let it provide relief of joint, arthritic and muscle pain.  Massage at night also for decreased morning stiffness. This is great for those working at a computer all day, the work out king or anyone that has a busy life! Don't forget to put some of Diane's soy wax candles in that gift bag with lovely scents of Lavender, Eucalyptus and Ylang Ylang.  Just go to .buylocallyCT.com and under "Shop by Category," you can check out "Salves," "Face and Body," and "Candles." 

There are many products that you can purchase on the website as well. Anything from Goat's Milk Soaps to custom made wood signs. You can even learn how to give a nice relaxing back massage to your partner as a gift! There's also chapsticks and local honey! CT has some amazing things to offer only at  www.buylocallyCT.com.

These are great gift ideas that people will actually use and appreciate this year instead of tucking it away in the closet. So make sure to start your shopping a little early and forget about the stress of crowds, lines and miserable people!
