This holiday season, the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce is offering personalized gift recommendations to shoppers who submit their requests at flintandgenesee.org/holidayshopper.
Here’s one question we received:
My sister moved to the east coast five years ago, but is still a Michigander at heart. This Christmas, I’d like to get her a something that reminds her home. Do you have any gift ideas that are made either here or in the state?
Looking Local in Burton
And here’s what our resident holiday shoppers had to say:
Hi, Looking Local,
Glad you asked – we have several ideas for you!
For instance, GoodBoy Clothing recently opened a storefront in downtown Flint. The business manufactures nearly everything in-house and has an awesome selection of streetwear for men and women.
If your sister is a fan of the Flint coney, swing by Abbott’s Meat to purchase the famous topping for diehard fans. Or, check out Koegel’s online store, which sells coney dog party packs as well as the company’s beloved pickled bologna.
These are just a few of the many Genesee County-based businesses that sell locally and Michigan-made products. Hopefully, this list helps you find the perfect gift for your sister!
Wishing you a wonderful holiday,
