The holidays aren’t just right around the corner, they’re officially here. Hanukkah is underway and Christmas is coming. With all of the busyness of the holidays, its easy to let a couple of things slip through the cracks. Maybe you accidentally overlooked a certain family member on the gift-giving list, or you’re worn out from your day’s events and don’t want to brave the crazy hustle and bustle of going shopping during this busy week.
That’s why we’ve compiled some great gift options for everyone – and you don’t even have to leave the island! All of these items are easily accessible on Anna Maria, and by shopping locally for your holiday gifts you’re helping support a local small business! Win/win.
