The ‘225’ team shares its ideas for local gifts this holiday season

We hear it all the time: the importance of shopping local. The good news is it’s easier to do than ever in Baton Rouge, with so many great makers, artists and food businesses in our midst. And during the holiday season, when we’re constantly remembering someone else that needs a gift, those local businesses are there with just the right stocking stuffer or unique item to wrap up for them.

It’s been a tough year (or two) for many of us, and Christmas shopping is already daunting enough on its own. That’s why inRegister’s sister publication 225 magazine has been trying to make it easier on their readers with a list of holiday pop-ups around town to check out, and even some 225 swag to add to a gift bag.

And in the spirit of keeping it local, the 225 team has some suggestions on their favorite locally made items to gift this year and local shops that always come through for stocking stuffers.

To read the full roundup, scroll through the story from the “225 Daily” e-newsletter. For our own lists of local gift ideas, check out our stories on stocking stuffers and home goods.
