Kitchener Waterloo Region Gift Guide

As promised, today I am sharing my Kitchener Waterloo Region Gift Guide

(I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's Canadian Christmas Gift Guide!)

There are so many reasons why it's important to shop local. It benefits our local economy because locally-owned businesses often purchase from other local businesses, service providers and farms which ensures more money stays in our region. It also provides jobs in the local economy, customer service is always better than a big box store and you get the expertise of the shop owner. 

These are our neighbours and our friends so let's support them this Christmas season!
