Gifting… Treat Yourself… Locally!

It is better to give than to receive. 

As you search for that perfect gift this holiday season, treat yourself to stress-free local shopping at the many unique and trendy boutiques that surround our Tri-state region.  The Berkshire charm is greatly attributed to the diverse, independently-run businesses that are woven throughout our communities.

Gifting is a custom with great social value.  Nearly all cultures have celebrated and strengthened bonds with one another through generous ceremonies of gifting.  It was believed that he who gave the most would see the most fortune.  Interestingly, psychologists have learned that it is often the giver, rather than the recipient, who reaps the greatest benefit when exchanging gifts.
