Well, we’ve never been more relieved to say goodbye to a year than this one. Though we know we’ve had our fair share of highs and (very low) lows, we also have to acknowledge that this year was one that reminded us to delight in the simple things. 2020 forced us to slow down, to simplify, to recognize the basic needs that connect us all. We have never been hungrier for connection and community, but the acute awareness of that hunger was made possible by such a year as this.
We want to thank the local businesses that took part in our Christmas Giveaway this year. And if you didn’t win, you can still browse the businesses and brands listed below for inspiration—who knows, perhaps you’ll find THE perfect gift.
From all of us here at The Lausanne Guide, we wish you a wonderful holiday season full of warmth, good health, and joy. See you in 2021!
