Another holiday season is quickly approaching. Where has the year gone? The stores are already beginning to put out their big holiday displays and the malls are becoming a little more crowded with everyone, especially the children, starting to get into the spirit.
Once again, we present our Holiday Gift Guide filled with great ideas for everyone on your list and all are from local businesses across the area. Within those pages you’ll find everything from spa services to jewelry, to theater tickets, plus the “Ms. Anthony” handbag and more. RWM has even included a special section for that little furry friend in your life.
On our cover, in the hot red Mustang convertible, is Kitty Van Bortel, owner of the Van Bortel Group of dealerships. Everyone knows Kitty as one of Rochester’s most successful business women, but the story doesn’t end there. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Kitty to discover more about this fascinating woman and the driving force behind her success.
And, speaking of the holidays, don’t we all want our homes to look extra special this time of year when we’re entertaining guests? Check out our “Dress Up Your Home” feature on pages 22-23 for some great tips on how to make your home the envy of all your guests. Our experts Vicki Ruff Interiors and Grossman’s Garden & Home have some unique ideas that are perfect for any home!
As you prepare for the craziness that is this holiday season, be sure to take a minute for yourself, (or sneak off to one of the incredible spa’s that are advertised in our holiday gift guide), and then curl up with a nice glass of wine and your favorite local woman’s magazine.
Happy Holidays everyone!
