Local Gifts Are More Special
Gift giving has become a complicated act. There was a time where selecting gifts meant hours of time was put into the effort to find one single quality gift, instead of selecting dozens of below par quality ones. As mass production has settled into society and very few things are unique anymore, finding a special gift has become difficult. What does that leave us with to give to our loved ones? We could try to make something, but I know personally, that I lack creativity or the ability to easily make anything. I may have good intentions, but the final product would come out horribly deformed. What is the next option then?
A growing option now is the option to give local made gifts. Most cities and towns have their specialty items. If you live in one of those places, why give your loved one a gift that was mass produced all the way across the world in a shop where the product was made with dis concern for the overseas consumers, when you can buy it at a local company that may even know your family or your friends by name?
One such shining example of a company that could be selected in the Ohio area is Bloomer Candy Company. They have been located in Zanesville, Ohio for over 100 years and have worked on perfecting chocolate the entire time. Chocolate goes well for almost all holidays and its sweetness has been enjoyed by people for centuries. In addition to chocolate, they offer an assortment of other sweets to go along with their famous 5 pound basket of chocolates.
Their chocolate gifts have a tradition in families in the region and is a perfect example of how a gift can be more special if it is selected locally in a company that makes a difference, has a history with the public and has been making product with care for a long time. As Bloomer’s CEO, Jerry Nolder put it, “Our story is an American story and we remain true to our middle class values. We offer high quality and high value to our customer base.”
Take a look at what your local city, county or state has to offer and select your gifts from those you know and trust and have been committed to providing memories and gifts for loved ones for a long time.
