50 Small Valley Businesses to Shop This Holiday Season

We try to spend our money where it pays for our neighbors' groceries and not for a millionaire's third vacation home.

By Diana Bonilla and Natalie Arroyo Camacho

The best thing we’ve learned this year is to invest our dollars in our community. There are so many creative, talented, and intelligent individuals in the Valley — so many of us pursuing our passions, building businesses, and purchasing homes here (to keep the gentrifiers out, of course).

Valley Gems creator Diana Bonilla collaborated with Viva the Valley to encourage us to put our money where it pays for our neighbors’ groceries and not for a millionaire’s third vacation home.

Shop these Valley businesses for all your holiday needs, and remember: You can always buy gift cards!
