Your 2020 Twin Cities Holiday Shopping Guide


Let's be real.


2020 has been a year unlike any other. It's shaken up our communities, changed the way we live and interact with each other, and shown us what's really important in life. For nearly all of us, it's been a really tough year. And despite everything that's happened this year, the holidays are still a time for spreading some joy and connecting with our loved ones - even though our traditions won't look or feel quite the same this year.


Small businesses have suffered a lot this year. Many small businesses have had to reinvent their business models multiple times to try to stay afloat. Many others couldn't sustain their businesses in light of the new and ever changing rules. It's more important this year than ever that we invest in our local economies to help keep our precious small business communities alive and well.

In this shopping guide, you'll find a variety of businesses based in the Twin Cities (where Casa Del Sol Designs is based) that offer quite a range of products and services! Don't worry; even if you don't live in the Twin Cities, many of these businesses offer shipping or online services!


So, if you have the means, please consider shopping local for your holiday gifts this year! And if there are any local small businesses you'd like to add to the list, let me know in the comments!
