A great way to get behind some local businesses is to buy gift vouchers for your loved ones, or yourself of course! If you're prepared to buy in advance, you might find yourself with some great deals and something to look forward to.

SOS Business is a platform that's been created to encourage locals to spend on small businesses across the country by buying vouchers for cafes and other small businesses now, when they need the cash, and redeem later. It's a great way to #supportlocal. Check it out.

It's always a treat to get takeaways every now and then, but now is the time to feel guilt-free about splurging on the most delicious, tasty treats around town. A great way to find out if your favourite local eatery is operating, check out their social media account or website. Now remember, with every greasy burger fix and takeaway coconut latte you purchase, you'll be supporting a local business!
