elcome to a holiday season unlike any other. After months of lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, drive-up testing, remote schooling, election madness and general chaos, 2020 has felt longer than a year. It’s understandable if crossing items off your holiday gift list is not your number one priority at the moment. After all, you’re likely unsure if you’re going to get to see your loved ones to give them whatever gifts you buy. But whatever your holiday festivities look like, one thing hasn’t changed: The best gifts are available from local vendors, artisans and businesses. In fact, it’s more important now than ever to buy local and support the establishments that make living in Boulder County unique. Every dollar spent locally, as

opposed to on Amazon or at a chain store, ripples throughout the community. And buying local this holiday season could make the difference as to whether a business is here next holiday season or not. So, peruse the pages of
