When it comes to the art of gift selection it’s vital to single out an item that embodies the personal passions and tastes of those on your holiday gift list. It matters not how big or small your gift is because selecting the quintessential gift expresses the time spent pinpointing exactly what you know they’ll cherish.
The optimum way to achieve this is to forget the malls and treat yourself to the exploration and inspiration of a local Hudson Valley shop—replete with everything from exclusive items by local artisans to the trendy and distinctive. It’s a pleasurable journey for you with a most meaningful impact for those you are gifting, not to mention the boost to the local economy.
