There are lots of great gift ideas that don’t come from a traditional retail store. If you are looking to shop local this holiday season, you have come to the right place. There are lots of ways to save on local gifts to give this holiday season!
I don’t know about you, but I think wine makes a great gift! There are several places to pick up local wines and spirits, beyond the spirits section in the grocery store. Plus, there are some local pubs and coffee shops offering gift card deals too!

The Midwest knows how to do food right! Give the gift of a basket full of local eats from the Council Bluffs area. Another great option is gift cards to local family owned restaurants.
