We’re in the home stretch of the holiday season and with so much to do, we could all use a few suggestions on how to gift thoughtfully this season. The New Hampshire Union Leader has identified 50+ fabulous finds from local artisans and small businesses. Whether you’re shopping for teachers, caregivers, spouses or the neighbor who has your back all year long, this guide highlights works of art, clothing, foods, and experiences from New Hampshire that will help you show your appreciation to those you care about. When you give locally, it’s like giving twice! Small businesses are more likely to give back to charitable causes and each dollar you spend at one returns 3 times more money to your local community than a dollar spent at a chain store. #shiftyourshopping

The New Hampshire Union Leader holiday series continues with the release of their Holiday Planner. You’ll find a wide assortment of gift ideas (for humans and pets) and examples of independent shops that support local makers. If you’ve committed to joining in our Shift Your Shopping campaign and are striving to shift 10% of your holiday shopping to local businesses this season, this Holiday Planner is a wonderful place to start. The Union Leader has gone behind the scenes with some of our members, including Sunapee GraniteWorks, Good Paws Bakery, The Red EFT Custom Hiking Sticks, Black Maple Glen, and Pop of Color, to learn what inspires their work and their connection to New Hampshire. Soap infused with maple syrup, Harry Potter style wands, jewelry made from local granite, and stylish decor to brighten your home – you’ll find all this and more made right here in NH!
