Does it make our hearts sing? Yes! Will it keep them warm, both inside and out? Will it last to be handed down to our grandchildren? Or will it simply make us smile every time we see them running off to play, with it tucked over a shoulder? One, or all of the above. That’s how we selected these gift picks for our Locally Sourced: Young & Young at Heart.
