In recent years, there has been a growing movement urging people to support their local communities by “shopping local.” Here at, we may be a bit partial, but we think no matter where you live – everyone should “Shop Finger Lakes”!

So whether you live in the region year round or if you just visit when you can, here are a few great Finger Lakes gift ideas!

Finger Lakes Books

Give a great book about the Finger Lakes. One of our favorites is the award winning  “Summer in a Glass – The Coming of Age of Winemaking in the Finger Lakes” by Evan Dawson. If you are in the region your local bookstore should carry it, otherwise you can buy it online and support a local writer.   Here are a few more Finger Lakes books to consider.
