With only a few remaining weeks until Christmas, it is time to start checking off that gift list. There are an abundance of options for buying gifts locally - especially if you are looking for a unique gift with home town flair. If you love vendor markets, you will not want to miss the Christkindlmarkt with crafts and local vendors on December 10th from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM.

For the beer lover, 1792 Beer Co. has a wide selection of bottled and canned brews, unique non-alcholic beverages, gourmet snacks, apparel and gift items. What to get for the person who might be hard to buy for? Roxboro Area Chamber of Commerce gift checks are a perfect solution! Chamber Gift Checks can be spent at over 100 member businesses in Roxboro and Person County. Have a farmer or farm enthusiast on your list? Tuck a "Support Your Local Farmer" Person County shirt into their stocking. Available from our very own Visitor and Information Center Gift Shop, in three colors and a variety of sizes. If you are still stumped for gift ideas, Hoppers Poppers created a crate gift package customizable with popcorn, coffee, frosted nuts, and chocolates. They also offer "ice cream for a year" coupons - with a scoop per month of 2022, it is the gift that keeps on giving. Madison Marketplace makes shopping a breeze - have your loved one add their name and favorite items to the Madison Marketplace wish list and take some of the guesswork out of your holiday shopping. Our last highlight is Specialty Design Co. in Uptown Roxboro. Specialty Design Co. is full of wonderful gift options including a handmade wood North Carolina cutting and serving board by Rock & Branch. Specialty Design Co. is also once again offering their annual Person County ornaments.

The true gift this season, is the quality time shared with friends, family, colleagues. If additional gifts are a part of your holiday season this year, remember to always Shop Small and reach out to the Visitor and Information center or Roxboro Area Chamber of Commerce for guidance on where to shop!
