2015 California Dreaming Gift Guide
As we enter December, we can officially say it’s gift buying crunch time. But before you head to the mall, consider this info on holiday spending. The National Retail Federation estimates that the average American will spend $805 on holiday gifts and goodies this year, totaling more than $630.5 billion—now that’s a lot of jingle balls. Just imagine if that money was spent entirely on U.S. made products, what the result for the economy would be. This year, make your holiday gifting a local affair by finding products produced in the Golden State.
Here’s a curated guide of our favorite local finds for everyone on your list. Consider it our gift to you.
