Stylish and locally-made reusable face masks can be great last-minute stocking stuffers or the final addition to someone on your gift giving list. We have compiled a list of five local brands that you can buy from this holiday season.

If you have a lot of people left on your list or want to stockpile masks for the upcoming months, Hippo Hug has a lot of bulk options for both adults and kids. But, rest assured, all of their bundles come in funky and unique patterns.
