The holidays are going to be big this year. Given the emotional roller coaster ride we've been on the past six months, the familiar refrain "We All Need a Little Christmas (Right This Very Minute)" takes on a whole new meaning. Even if you won't be getting together with friends and family in person this year, you can still spread holiday cheers with gifts. Here are some local vendors and artisans to help you fill out your holiday wish list this year.
