Give Concord for Christmas

Support your city by shopping at small businesses and gifting memberships to local organizations. Here are some suggestions for showing Concord some love this holiday season.

Running out of gift ideas for the hard-to-buy-for? Looking for something a little more unique?

One option is to step away from the online shopping cart and the big-name stores — and come on home to Concord instead.

Shopping at the mom-and-pop shops in the city helps keep these businesses alive, and there are plenty of ways to support local organizations this holiday season with your gift-buying choices.

Here are a few suggestions of how to give Concord for Christmas:

  • For long-time Concordians and history buffs, buy them a membership to the Concord Historical Society. It's $25 a year or $500 for life. Download a membership application form from the Concord Historical Society website.
  • Some locally owned businesses have gift cards available for purchase. Check with management at your mom-and-pop shop or restaurant of choice to see what's available.

Great ideas! You could also give a homemade coupon for a volunteer date at these places for some quality time.
