I love local guide to the holidays 2021

It’s beginning to look a lot like . . .


he holidays are back to normal . . . at least closer to “normal” than we’ve managed since 2019. Last year at this time the holidays were looking pretty lonely—vaccines hadn’t arrived and family gatherings were a risk. But now many of us are double- or triple-jabbed, and 2021 promises a resurgence of holiday joy. Those excited to spread love with holiday gifts may be intimidated by recent headlines about hiccups in the supply chain. It sounds intimidating—shipping containers backed up by the hundreds at the ports, microchips and semiconductors in short supply . . . We have a solution of sorts: Shorten your supply chain. Spend your holiday gift budget with local vendors and artisans; support the local businesses who’ve suffered through our plague years alongside us. Boulder County is composed of communities, but you know who isn’t a member of any of those communities? Jeff Bezos and Amazon. Every time you spend a dollar at a local business instead of clicking ‘Buy It Now’ you’re enriching your community— those dollars circulate among our zip codes instead of shooting off into orbit on a Blue Origin rocketship. We love buying local, and we know you do, too. So once again we present our I Love Local gift guide, chock-full of local options for your shopping pleasure—after the year we’ve spent trying to emerge from the pandemic, you probably owe yourself a special gift along with the baubles you’re buying for your loved ones. May your holiday season be filled with joy, health, and companionship, as well as the finest goods and gifts our local businesses have to offer.
