It’s never too early to get in on the holiday spirit. If you’re starting to plan out your Christmas gift ideas, we have you covered. Each week leading up to Christmas, Detroitisit will share a themed Holiday Gift Guide highlighting gift ideas for the whole family from local Detroit businesses. This holiday season, don’t forget to shop local, shop safe, and support small businesses!
After being forced to tremendously slow down this year, we have extra time to focus on the most important thing of all: ourselves. If you’re looking to encourage someone you love to invest time in themselves, their physical health, and their mental health. We’ve rounded up the best Detroit businesses in the beauty and wellness realm where you can purchase a gift card and or service to gift to a wellness lover that needs a little extra relaxation this season.
