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!
