Top 10 Local Christmas Gifts
This year, community and small businesses are more important than ever. Here at Firehouse Workspace, we wanted to make it easier for you to celebrate by buying local, so we created this gift guide to point you in the right direction. We listed 10 of our favorites, followed by a few runners-up, and then more local gift ideas. Most of these businesses are willing to do curbside pickup, even if you can't come in their store. Some only do shipping, which might work pretty well if the recipient doesn't live nearby! Have a local business to add to this list? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
For the Carnivore in your life: Five Heart Farms' Happy Holiday Box
The Happy Holiday box includes a 16-18 oz New York Strip, a 16-18 oz ribeye, and a large sirloin steak. It includes a personalized gift tag as well. This is quality local beef, dry-aged 21 to 28 days. Five Heart Farms offers free local pickup, but they also ship. Hurry, these sell out fast!
For your kids' stockings: Olive & June's Candy Club jars
My kids think candy is a stocking staple. And honestly, even though I'm not a kid anymore, I'd still like some of this in my stocking! With flavors like Gimme S'mores, Rainbow Sour Belts, and Unicorn Popcorn, Olive & June has something for everyone.
For the Quarantine Binge-Watcher: Sage & June's Cecile throw
This cozy throw has a woven tribal design in shades of black and gray, which is reminiscent of New Mexico's Native American heritage. If you're looking for a different style, Sage & June has plenty of other throws to choose from.
For the Foodie: A gift board from Fig + Olive Graze Co. with a bottle of New Mexico wine from Enchantment Vineyards
The moment you see Fig + Olive's creations, your mouth will start to water. Seriously. Their fabulous charcuterie boards will pair perfectly with one of Enchantment Vineyards' reds or whites, depending on your preference and budget.
For the person who can't get enough Christmas: Salvage and Sparkle's Christmas Door Hanger
Let me start by saying that everything in Salvage and Sparkle's Etsy shop is adorable, Their leopard or houndstooth accented door hanger makes it easy to add a festive touch to your front door (or back door, office door, guest room...)
For the Coffee Lover: Fresh roasted beans from Blackwater Coffee, plus a cool Campfire Mug
Blackwater will ground the beans for you, if desired. Personally, I like the ritual of grinding my own beans every morning. I can imagine sipping fresh brew from this mug while sitting on my porch watching the sun come up. I mean... I can imagine someone I love sipping from this mug while sitting on their front porch watching the sun come up.
For the man who likes to feel pampered: The Artisan Clover's Hello Handsome! Soap

For your preteen niece: Over-the-knee socks from Rebecca's
