2018 Philadelphia Family Shop Local Guide

What puts you in a holiday mood? My kids and I LOVE sprucing up our home with decorations. And I can’t get enough of the local businesses who create imaginative winter window displays. Whether it’s the adornments, a reason to shop local, or give with intention, this year our team created this Shop Local Guide to cheer you on!


Our Philly Family Community Facebook group helped us curate a list of 30+ favorite places to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list and we had SUCH a great time ogling Instagram feeds that we had to include their handles. Investing your time to find unique gifts from these small businesses supports our local economy and is downright neighborly!
