For the next few weeks, the Keys Weekly will feature a local gift guide for the purposes of making the holidays simple and bright. We’re supporting local, small businesses and hope our readers will too. The gifts on this page are perfect for the fashionista in your life, the one who interprets “Keys Casual” like an “Insta” trendsetter.
