It’s the holiday season and you’re trying to find the perfect item for that special person on your list. You’ve searched the malls, but you’ve come up with nothing. You can shop online, but where’s the fun in that? Why not tour the boutiques, shops, and attractions around the Cumberland Valley to finish your list?

Everyday beginning on November 19th through December 10th, we’re giving you a calendar of gift suggestions for everyone on your list! And even better…we’re giving them away!

Beginning on Saturday, November 19th, we’ll be posting items that you can find in the Cumberland Valley (some exclusively) on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Not only can you find these suggestions, you can win them! Just like, share, comment or retweet for your chance to win each day’s prize (see a complete list of rules at the bottom). Gifts include tickets to the Nutcracker, jewelry from K Novinger, kitchen utensils from the Kitchen Shoppe, golf equipment, a kids bicycle and more. Check back as we reveal each new item every day and remember to support local businesses on Small Business Saturday on November 26, 2016.
