This winter, shop local to elevate your gift-giving and have fun while you’re at it. We asked South Charlotte merchants for their suggestions, and they delivered.

Whether you’re giving to people who “don’t need anything” or to the ones who like grand gestures, we’ve got presents to delight them all (and you) during this season of giving.

Cinnamon Rolls, $5.25 each, Sunflour Baking Company. Brioche dough rolled up with cinnamon brown sugar and iced with cream cheese frosting.

Why not bring cinnamon rolls to your New Year’s Eve party so the hosts can indulge on New Year’s Day? Or, dazzle them with a gorgeous winter-themed cake!

For the youngsters in your life who get immersed in imaginative play, get them a whimsical Maileg mouse.

Know someone who’s always cold? The Kashwére blanket will warm their heart and their toes. And, who wouldn’t love some serious bling for Valentine’s Day, a birthday or just because?

There’s also the Giving Machine, with many charitable gift options, one joyful vending machine transaction at a time.

Enjoy flipping through these gift ideas, and get ready to shop, shop, shop.
