ShopCOS 2016:: A Locally Sourced Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday season is upon us!

We had so much fun putting together our ShopCOS 2016 Holiday Gift Guide for you! Let’s be honest: moms are usually the ones purchasing the holiday gifts for EVERYONE, and it’s not always an easy task. We often find ourselves scratching our heads wondering what to get everyone. Throw this in with the stress of the holidays, and it’s easy to find yourself thinking, This is NOT the most wonderful time of the year! In an effort to take a little bit of that stress off of your plate and to encourage you to shop small and support the families in our community, Colorado Springs Moms Blog has put together a stellar holiday gift guide just for you! It is our hope that this post will encourage you to turn to local Colorado Springs stores and merchants for all of your holiday gifts and shopping needs.
