At PJ Morgan Real Estate, we can’t say enough about how much we love our local small business community! We are so lucky to have a wealth of unique and creative makers and stores in our metro area, so we want to encourage you to spend your holiday dollars locally this holiday season. We have created three gift sets with all locally purchased items to give you inspiration for your holiday shopping list!

For a Fun Night In

Tis’ the season for lots of events, nights out, and often over-indulging in delicious food and drinks. Often by the end of the holiday season, we’re ready for a little break. Why not give the gift of a quiet night in? For this gift set, we have paired these Omaha tumblers from Made in Omaha with a bottle of non-alcoholic spirits from Sandhills Elixir to create a delicious mocktail (or mix with your favorite spirit)! Pair these with an Omaha landmark puzzle (designed by Graham Burkum and also available at Made in Omaha) and you have provided the tools for a wonderful night in.

For the Reader

Book lovers thrive in the winter. What could be better than a good book, a hot drink and a cozy space to read while the snow falls outside? For this gift set we suggest a book or gift card from The Bookworm, a nice candle like this one Happy Place Candle Co. (found at Made in Omaha and popping up at Bench:MADE), and a cozy throw blanket like this one from Spruce. Anyone on your holiday list can embrace a little hygge with this comforting set.

For the Vinyl Lover

As the colder weather drives us indoors, many are dusting off their records to set the holiday mood. If you have a Vinyl lover on your gift list we have many great options in town! We recommend pairing the book “Booze & Vinyl” from The Bookwork with one of the records from the book. If you don’t know their collection, a gift card to Grapefruit Records will do just fine. Pack it all in a record crate and check another gift off your list!

And if you’re looking for more great local gifts, members of our team have given us some of their favorite places to shop locally:

Crystal Archer, REALTOR®, loves purchasing gifts from Earl & Gray in Bennington.

Commercial Accountant, Ben Verdoorn, recommends Homer’s, Next Millennium and Nebraska Aquatic Supply.

Kelsey Wallerstedt, Graphic Designer, loves everything Julia M Illustrates makes. Her neighborhood prints make perfect gifts for real estate agents to give to their clients.

Assistant Property Manager, Derek Emmert, shops for nostalgic goodies and gifts at The Emporium in the Old Market.

Andrea Foley, REALTOR®, finds foodie gifts at Old World Oil & Vinegar in Rockbrook Village.

And our Marketing Specialist, Jill Brosnahan, always finds great gifts for everyone on her list at Dusk in Little Bohemia.
