Do you still have items on your Christmas list? I know I have a few! The items I usually leave for last are the hardest ones to buy for. Think the co-workers, in-laws and my brother (hehe). This leaves me with a small amount of stress and not a lot of time. What to do in this small town? Well, luckily we have some pretty amazing shops here in our area that I know will cover the remaining gifts I need to get.
Below I am going to share those ideas from a few of our wonderful local businesses in town. Hopefully, I can help you finish up the list so you can sit back with a nice glass of red wine and search for those yummy sides, like my roasted Brussel sprouts, for Christmas dinner.
Here are 8 ideas for last minute gifts and to shop local:
1. Wildflower Boutique - The One Stop Shop for the females in your life. This chic boutique located on front street of Morgan City has clothing, shoes, jewelry, candles, accessories and baby gifts from brands like Kendra Scott, Julie Voss and Vera Bradley.
