A new Christmas Tradition

Start a New Christmas Tradition:
Buy Local.
Here are a few super ideas for gift giving this year, and great ways to support your local economy.
It's time to think outside the box. Here are a few ideas:
Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local hair salon or barber?
How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the local working guy?
Maybe you know someone whose computer could use a tune-up, I am sure you can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.
How about a gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages.
Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.
How about a date night gift? Offer to watch your friends children and give them a gift certificates to a local eatery?
Maybe you know an eldery person who would love someone to come in and clean for a day/week?  
Maybe something a bit more personal, hit your local craft fairs/bazaars and find something handmade.
Just a few ideas to get you started. Enjoy the season!
