Calling all Greenvillians on a budget. Between travel, gifting, decorating + eating out with family and friends, holiday costs can add up quickly. Americans usually spend nearly $1,000 on gifts each year:
- $648 for gifts for family, friends + coworkers
- $231 for food, decorations + cards
- $118 for other non-gift purchases
For those looking to save some money where they can in the coming weeks (because honestly, who isn’t?), we’ve rounded up five local gifts under $50 that you can buy online directly through Surcee, GVL’s very own local shopping platform. Surcee is a curated collection of dozens of local-favorite GVL retailers, and ordering is easy: All you do is hop on their website and browse until you find the perfect product. You don’t even have to leave your couch.
