Gifts for the Home: 2012 Small Business Holiday Gift Guide

Looking for a gift that will look great at home? Check out our gift guide of local, small businesses in Oak Park and Forest Park that will look great in your home, or as a gift to the host of a holiday party.

In the last week, I've traveled to nearly every boutique, shop and store in Oak Park and Forest Park on the hunt for great holiday gift ideas. I've been amazed at the wide selection these stores have to offer and the great prices they offer their merchandise at.

Shopping locally at small businesses saves money on shipping and gas, allows you to see and touch what you're purchasing and keeps your money in the community.

We've managed to assemble a great collection of gifts that would look great in your home, or the home of friend. Many of these gifts are also priced right and are perfect for grabbing to give the host of a holiday party you're invited to. Here's what we found.
