Food was a big part of Birmingham’s revival, so it makes sense that there are plenty of local foodies to shop for this holiday season. REV’s Taylor Clark Jacobson is one such foodie, and she has some creative suggestions that are sure to delight anyone you’re shopping for.
Remember, that gift cards are also a fantastic option this season especially. Not only will your loved one be satisfied; You’ll also be doing the best thing to support our local shops and restaurants.
Gift cards create a cycle of goodwill. You give a gift. The recipient goes into a favorite local spot or discovers a new one. They spend the gift cards and might even spend a little more if they like the store. Then, they might even become a repeat customer.
As a bonus, any gift or gift card from a local small business enters you to win $100 worth of local gift in The Great Receipt Race. More info below.
Purchases from Birmingham small businesses can enter you to win gift cards from local restaurants and retailers during the Great Receipt Race this holiday season!

Ever host an event where you ordered way too much food and end up with more leftovers than you can even fathom? We’ve been there too – until we learned about Magic City Harvest! Magic City Harvest is an organization working towards ending food waste & hunger in the Magic City. They acquire perishable food from schools, wholesale food distributors, restaurants, caterers, churches, event venues and grocery stores to donate to 30 community partners on the frontlines feeding the city’s hungry neighbors.
We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited!
