Welcome to our December Notebook. Typically this is the busiest season for retail and small shops. Though with rolling lockdowns across the country and around the world 2020 continues to be a challenging year for small business. As we are all mainly shopping online this holiday season our inboxes are updated daily with a deluge of gift guides. So we are highlighting some of our favorite gift guides in our December Notebook.
