Whether Gifts for You or Others, Shop Local

Holiday shopping in December is the best time to shop local.

Holiday shopping in December is the best time to shop local. No shipping fees. No delivery delays. Just grab and go with the thanks and appreciation of a friendly community merchant. This is when I like to do my very personal gift shopping.

Both stores I am featuring in this month’s column are packed with all kind of goodies for your fashion needs and more.

I love a good one-stop shop. Bradly’s Home and Garden, 117 E. Cesar Chavez Ave. in Old Town Lansing, now carries a collection of menswear at very affordable prices. The owners have a great selection a of trendy sports coats, that are priced so well you can afford to buy one each season. Also, there are great T-shirts, pants and hats. At the store’s great prices, you can get an entire very trendy outfit that will take you from work to an evening on the town.

Urban Outfitters, 2950 Centre Blvd. in East Lansing, is another great shop. The store carries a large selection of men’s and women’s clothing — a collection of merchandise that could make anyone in your family happy. Shop this season’s long sweater coats and teddy bear jackets for her and stylish oversized sweatshirts and funny socks for him.

Other trending items include knit sets — tops and bottoms in sweater material. Black moto boots are the trending boot for winter, or pick up casual sneakers. No matter what you end up giving, I’m sure your loved ones will be ever so grateful.

Happy holidays to you and yours — and happy shopping local.
