Disclosure:: This guide is brought to you care of our many local & national gift guide sponsors! Thank you to those that supported the creation of this resource.
We here at the Anaheim Moms Blog are thrilled to bring you the 2017 Holiday Shopping Guide! With Thanksgiving and the December holidays fast approaching, you’re probably starting to think about what gifts to get your loved ones. Like stockings hung by the chimney, we have put together this list with care, and it includes a wide variety of products, many of which are made or sold by local mamas from our community!
Others in this guide are eco-friendly or small businesses. When you buy from a family-owned/small business, you’re giving a gift not only to your lucky recipient but to the seller as well: the gift of thoughtful spending.
So before you hop onto Amazon and zip through your holiday shopping, maybe, this year, try something new?
(And don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end of this post!)
