As the holiday spirit fills Vermont this December, we encourage you to shop local for your gifts. Local businesses are struggling because of the public health crisis. Your gift-giving this winter can support Vermont businesses while you buy high-quality and thoughtful presents.
The Vermont Chamber of Commerce and Vermont Attractions Association have collected gift ideas for you to consider this winter:
