Shop Local. Support Moms | A Holiday Gift Guide


Christmas is a great time to show our support for the hard-working local businesses. Here at Dallas Moms Blog, we want to do everything we can to intentionally support those local businesses that are owned by MOMS. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather my money go to my fellow moms who are working hard to do and create things they love. Think of the gift we are giving these moms by purchasing gifts from them, as opposed to big box stores. Let’s rally together to support these local moms (that live right here in our community) both now for the holidays, and year round! Bookmark this page, pin these businesses’s websites, and remember to shop these mom-owned businesses whenever the opportunities arrise!

  1. Hello, Dallas moms! Thanks for helping to spread the word about local businesses and products! I’m a singer/songwriter and new to the area. Just recently moved to Dallas from Nashville. I have a brand new CD out of original, whimsical music for kids. It’s called Commander Salamander, and it’s available in several great locations like Monster Yogurt (Casa Linda), Random (Lakewood), and RaRa’s Closet (Lake Highlands)! You can listen to the whole album on my website, and bring your kids out to upcoming shows where I’ll be playing like Whole Foods, Lakewood, on Dec. 22 and The Galleria Mall on Jan. 5. My 2 children inspired every word, so I look forward to connecting with other moms and sharing my music with your kiddos! Thanks for this wonderful forum to help to spread the word!
