Holiday gifts from local businesses for everyone on your Christmas list.

My favorite thing about the Holidays is giving gifts to my friends and family. Finding the perfect gift that matches the receiver’s  personality can be difficult. That’s why I have created this Holiday Gift Guide with specific gift ideas from either a local (NC), small, family-owned, or mom-owned business. Each gift idea will match someone on your list plus you will be supporting a small business.


Ladies Who Love Bling ( even the mom that wants to add more bling to her look)

Lilla Rose a direct sales business offers the prettiest and simply elegant hair clips that make adding bling to your look simple.

The Busy Mom or Family

I am so glad I met Leslie of Fresh From the Kitchen Apex at a local business conference. Leslie prepares delicious meals and delivers them to your home in Raleigh, and Western Wake county communities. Meals are priced at $24 for 2-servings and $40 for 4-servings. The price includes delivery. I know that as a family of 4, a meal-out costs more than $40. You can purchase a gift certificate for a friend or family member to use or you can order a meal of your own (perfect during this busy time of year).

Fresh From the Kitchen Apex delivers home cooked meals to your home.

The Fitness Enthusiast

I am always motivated by a challenge, and that is why I usually sign up for race at least once a year. Training for a race motivates you to eat healthy and exercise regularly. I usually run a 5k, but I recently started training for a 4 mile race that will be held April 22, 2017 in the hilly, yet beautiful town of Chapel Hill, NC. Give your fitness and running friend the gift of a registration for the Tarheel 10-miler or Fleet Feet 4-miler. Save $5 off registration by using my exclusive code:TH10Rachel
