Many of us have temporarily hit pause on travel plans due to the worldwide pandemic, but that certainly doesn't need to kill our wanderlust completely.
To keep spirits lifted and minds wandering during the holiday season, fill the stockings of loved ones with gift cards, and memberships from Cortland County establishments to spend or experience later. Not only will you be supporting local businesses who need our help more than ever, but it will serve as a symbol of hope for all the adventures to be had in the future. Plus, gift cards can be used whenever the time is right, whether that’s three months from now, next year, or beyond!
If someone on your nice list loves eating locally grown and produced products, check out these specially agriculture gift certificates and merchandise available in Cortland County that can be used to plan for future adventures.
