Editorial: Look close to home

We’re not suggesting we all forgo scooping up $2 crock pots or shopping from the convenience of the home (by all means, stay off the roads!), but when it comes time to snag that last-minute gift for Uncle Gerald and braving the mall seems a nightmare, consider the small, local storefronts that will be more accessible and might just have something truly unique. And when you’re just seeking out a gift card for that hard-to-buy-for relative, remember it’s not only national retailers who sell them.

But no matter what you do, try to keep the holidays in perspective and enjoy the best parts of them: family, friends, food and experiences.
