A partridge in a pear tree? Two turtle doves? Three french hens? Though these were possibly wonderful and festive gifts at some point in history, they're simply not a practical gesture today. Rather than try to scrounge up eight maids-a-milking, or ten lords-a-leaping, this holiday season Old Town Home has partnered with the Old Town Boutique District and twelve of its member stores to throw a wonderful Twelve Days of Christmas Reader Reward!

Through the generosity of these small businesses in Old Town Alexandria, we'll be giving away a $50 gift certificate to each store over the course of twelve days. Here's the exciting lineup:

I love that you are supporting local businesses! Will all of the giveaways need to be used at the store in person, or will some of them be able to be used over the interwebs for us out-of-towners?
Hi Emily,

We're really happy to be supporting local businesses. Unfortunately, the majority are in person and in store only. If any allow out of towner redemption (by phone or online) we'll be sure to put that item in the fine print on that specific giveaway.
