At a loss for what to get all those on your list this holiday season? The perfect presents are right here in the Valley. Cooks will enjoy a cookbook straight from the farm. Or, brighten someone's home with some Arizona-themed décor or locally made and seasonally scented candles. Gift baskets, holiday drinks and fun serving sets that give back are also great choices. And of course, we have something for Fido, too.
