Your Presents is Requested at these Children’s Shopping Spots

Even in today’s age of technology, it’s hard to pick out the “perfect” Christmas gift for children online. There’s really no substitute for going into a store and seeing the items in person. Luckily, there are lots of local businesses that will let you do just that. Make this Christmas special with something chosen from your heart, not something forgot about the instant after you put it in your online cart.

I know we’ve been here before, and I’m not stopping now. Books are incredible. A great gift that will give forever and ever. Copperfield’s has a great selection of children’s books and it will warm my heart to know that I’ve spread the word about reading. What can I say, I’m a bibliophile, and I want to see more bibliophiles in the world. I swear, they aren’t paying me.

Toys, Clothes, Shoes, and more. It may be hard to pick out gifts for children, but these great local shops make the job a little bit easier. This Christmas season, shop local, Sonoma, and enjoy the gift of giving.
