Helpful hints for the holiday shopper

The facts speak for themselves — online shopping grows more popular with every passing holiday season. And everyone knows that buying presents at mega-store chains may even save you a few sheckels.

Still, in our humble estimation, the joy of mingling with other shoppers, discovering unique gifts at quirky and magnificently decorated neighborhood stores, and supporting local businesses and shops beats the impersonal nature of Internet commerce by a long shot.

In this year’s Jmore Chanukah Gift Guide, we’ve searched Charm City and its surroundings to find the best gifts for everyone on your shopping list. Please take a look at our selections and head over to these nearby retail establishments in time for the Festival of Lights, which will be observed Dec. 12-20.
