    Northeastern Pennsylvania is full of mom-and-pop shops and independently owned and operated businesses. Large commercial stores have their place, but this holiday season we’ve provided a list of suggestions for finding intricate, thoughtful and creative gift items that are either hand-crafted, locally made or, a bit more novel than the usual Christmas gifts. The region’s small businesses work hard to provide authentic goods and expert services to communities throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. At these locations shoppers are sure to find intriguing and unique gifts and gift ideas while interacting with more locals. Why not try something new this year and shop locally.

    Circles on the Square

    9 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre

    7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Mon.-Fri.

    If you want to start your own whimsical band you can get started with a metal kazoo ($4.95) from Circles on the Square, which also offers pan flutes for $5.99 and a harmonica in the Key of C for $6.95. What? You thought this clever little deli was only a sandwich-and-salad kind of place?

    The musical possibilities continue at Circles on the Square, where your opera loving friends might appreciate the gift of Woodstock wind chimes designed by musician Garry Kvistad. One of the larger sets in the “Chimes of Tuscany” collection ($44.95) has been tuned to Verdi’s “La Forza del Destino.”

    Barnes & Noble

    7 S. Main St. #1, Wilkes-Barre

    Do you know a little girl who loves Elsa and Anna and all their friends from “Frozen?” The Barnes & Noble Wilkes-King’s Bookstore boasts quite a collection of memorabilia, from a sing-a-long book to a kit that helps you make paper dresses, similar to what the princesses wear, to a set of five paint-by-number images ($9.95) from the cold-weather but warm-hearted story.

    A young or young-at-heart friend who still appreciates the magic of unicorns may enjoy this “Unicorn Rescue Kit” that includes a little plush horse, small enough to fit into a stocking; an adoption certificate and an explanation of legends about unicorns. Available at Barnes & Noble for $9.95.

    Tough guys who DON’T like unicorns may prefer the Zombie Bowling Kit, also available at Barnes & Noble. This decidedly less cute stuffing stuffer contains one “zombie head” bowling ball and 10 decapitated zombie body pins, all miniature of course. $8.95

The salt crystals are said to emit negative ions that kill bacteria, reduce radiation and soothe the body and soul while the light adds a soft glow.

    Looking for a tiny gift for a child or anyone who likes charming little objects? You can find a tiny woven bag of Guatemalan worry dolls for $1.95 at Shambala. According to legend, you can tell one of your worries to each of the dolls before you go to sleep and they will take your worries away.

    According to a legend from Turkey, you can ward off bad luck, jealous thoughts and the “evil eye” by wearing a pendant that appears to be an all-seeing eye. $6.96.
