2021 Holiday Shopping Guide

Holiday shopping procrastination. Whether we admit it or not, we all fall victim to this stressful habit. It’s easy to prolong the inevitable weekend shopping exhaustion and replace it with a quick online shopping spree. Some of it never arrives on time, some of it looks nothing like the picture on the website and most of it creates interest payments on a credit card. All of the gifts bought from online big box stores have one thing in common though, they don’t support the local businesses that keep our community vibrant!

This holiday season, the Ord Area Chamber wants to help you fight the shopping procrastination and holiday spirit drain by showcasing local products that make the perfect gifts for everyone on your list! No matter who you’re shopping for, there’s something for everyone right here in Valley County.
