‘Tis the season for gift giving (and making your own wish list)! We love supporting local businesses in our hometown, Baltimore, and asked our team to share the locally made favorites that they’re excited to give (and get) this year. Most are available for national delivery, so you don’t have to be in Baltimore to enjoy the Baltimore-based gift ideas on our gift guide!
1. Gundalow Juice
This Baltimore based company makes small-batch and chef-inspired juices, made from only fruit and vegetables. (We love that transparency.) The vitamins and minerals from the fruits and vegetables will elevate your energy and fuel your day! This is the perfect gift for your health-consciousness friend who is looking to turn over a new leaf in 2018.

2. Annie Howe Papercuts
From start to finish, each Annie Howe papercut is handmade and tells a story. From a simple sketch, Annie transfers the design to drawing paper, then carefully cuts away symmetrical details to reveal a beautiful, illustrative papercut, infused with an artist’s touch.
