The city you live in should be a place you’d never have to leave for anything. All the essentials – and preferably more – should be conveniently within arm’s reach. Not every city holds true to such wisdom, but if you’re in Greater Daytona Beach, it’s safe to say a trip to Orlando should never be a necessity. With Christmas and Hanukkah just around the corner, it’s officially crunch time for holiday shopping.
Picking the perfect present is tough, but Daytona Beach Mom is here to help — at least when it comes to a target audience that goes nuts for luxe gifts and all things food and drink. These locally themed gift suggestions range from marble serving platters for the chic hostess to indestructible dining sets for kids. Need more ideas?
