As you may have noticed from the festive red bows throughout the neighborhood, the holiday season is in full swing in MVT! Sure, the holiday cheer and time spent celebrating safely with family and friends is wonderful, but shopping for everybody on your holiday gift list can be difficult. So this year, why not give the gift of local? To help make things just a little bit easier, MVT CID’s Holiday Gift Guide covers fantastic gifts at every price point from businesses around the neighborhood. And consider making gift cards an important part of your holiday shopping checklist. They make perfect gifts for those on your list who already have everything, and our businesses will appreciate the immediate cash support during these slower winter months. Be sure to check back often as we will continue to add and update promotions as they become available!
