IT’S HOLIDAY SEASON, which means the busiest shopping weekend is upon us! We want to remind you of the importance of shopping local this Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. According to Spend Local JP, for every $1 that is spent, 67 cents remains in the local community to help fund important initiatives, like education and infrastructure, which contribute to a better quality of life for all of us. So, we decided to put together a small list of local businesses that you could patron during this holiday season. Whether you decide to shop in person, online, or both we’ve got you covered!
FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS EVERYTHING:
Bonfolk donates a pair socks for every pair sold to nonprofits across the USA
Box of Care Gift Company
Box of Care curates care packages that feature local goods and embodies the spirit of New Orleans culture.
You can find numerous items all inspired by New Orleans!
Pete’s Paper Crafts
These 3D lasercut papercrafts are like postcards that come to life!
They have “a little something for everyone” and they even offer gift wrapping!
FOR THE FOODIES:
You can take a break from your holiday shopping and grab a bite or get a gift card for the foodie in your life!
