Rochester Holiday Gift Guide 2020


Happy Holidays Brunchies! 

I know that this year everyone is dealing with things a little differently. There will be no longer be long lines of people in tents and law chairs outside stores on Black Friday eve, or endless store adds that get us out of bed at 4am for that new flat screen. This year is different, so we should think differently too.

 We here at Brunch lifestyle wanted to give you all a tool to support small businesses locally. Our little Rochester is filled talented entrepreneur's that deserve our support! We have personally read through every website on our list below and they have touched us in a way that we knew we had to feature them! Small businesses have suffered in 2020, lets give them some Holiday cheer and order small before prime.
