This is a great way to support a local business and also help the Old Mission Women’s Club support local nonprofits through their annual grants, like this year’s recipients, Old Mission Peninsula School and Peninsula Community Library.

Owned by Julie Millen, Benjamin Twiggs was founded in 1966 and offers lots of great gift items for all the moms in your life, including local cherry products and individualized gift baskets and goodies. They’ll even ship them for you. If you can’t decide what to get, buy your mom a gift certificate and she can pick out what she wants. Win-win.
