Holiday shopping can be stressful, and with the challenges 2020 has thrown at us, this season might be a little more stressful than most. Small businesses have faced new challenges as well, but this holiday season many of them are still offering great gifts that are both thoughtful and uniquely Detroit.
We highlighted some local businesses a few weeks ago for Small Business Saturday, and here’s an even bigger guide to local shopping in the D.
