Scott’s “Haute Holiday Dozen”

Holiday Gift List Horizontal2 1

Our city’s amazing retail establishments have been suffering, along with our community’s restaurants, event vendors and many other business types. As I was perusing websites online recently, I noticed that Oprah had continued her annual “Oprah’s Favorite Things!” I thought this could be a perfect time to showcase some of my favorite fashion, jewelry, gift stores, health & wellness, specialty items and more. I asked each of them to share their (and in many cases my) favorite gifts. I have shared a photo of each item along with a short description, company name, price and website link. I also included shopping and delivery methods: in-store, curbside pick-up or delivery. Please enjoy my list and shop locally if at all possible this season. Our stores need you!

Define Cbd Group

DEFINE

Supermom Full Spectrum CBD Products
Say goodbye to exhaustion with SuperMom CBD.  If you were anything like Henry Richardson, the founder of DEFINE, you were reluctant at trying CBD for two reasons.  1) Does it really do anything? and 2) It has a “stigma” and a “look” that wasn’t very appealing.  However, after the encouragement from his sister, who is the founder of SuperMom CBD, he started taking her new line, and now he says he hasn’t slept so well in years.  His favorite item is called, Chill Pill.  It is a powerful hand pressed blended CBD that you feel working within a few minutes.  The best part … it is all-natural, pure, and has zero side-effects.  Check out a variety of their amazing products from Mom of the Year (fruit chews) to the incredibly effective Muscle Magic for all of your body’s ailments.
