Are those stockings stuffed? The neighbors, gifted? You’ve got your coworkers covered, teachers taken care of, friends finished, etc, etc.? If the answer is yes, you can simply sit back and enjoy some delicious eye candy. If, like me, you’re nowhere near ready for Christmas to be just a week away, Gardner Village has you covered. It’s a convenient, FUN, one-stop spot for anyone left on your list. Today, we're taking a closer look at smaller ideas that make checking off that lengthy list of extended friends a bit more manageable.
(Pssst... Find hilarious white elephant ideas here.)
There’s a reason so many holiday carols focus on home. It’s a special place. Speak to that comfort with a gift that will brighten up the homes of those you love.
KITCHEN LOVE @ Down to Earth Design & Home Furnishings
These measuring cups… Where’s the heart-eye emoji when we need it? Wood beads are also a very hot topic right now, and you can’t go wrong with artificial greenery this time of year.
A LITTLE HOME HUMOR @ Layers Bedding
Any parent from any ‘hood will get a kick out of this sign, and a Volcano candle always lights up the giving experience.
DON’T BE SHEEPISH @ CF Home Furniture & Design
For good girls and baaaaa…d, (forgive the inability to resist a pun), this massive store is full of farm house fashion.
OH, DEER @ Simply Flowers
Christmas and all year through, any neighbor would find this handsome fella on point.
Wearable Wishes Come True
Forget the halls. Deck the bodies in cozy hats and sparkling accessories!
BEANIE BUSINESS AT Willow Hill Yarn Co.
These hats are soo soft. I guess that's to be expected when they’re being sold by yarn experts.
ALL THAT SPARKLES @ Boda Bridal
Brides aside, Boda is a chic stop for anyone shopping for teens, tweens, girl friends or a little something glam to wear to that upcoming office party.
For the foodies on your list…
SWEET TREATS @ Chocolate Covered Wagon
Not sure where you fall on the Naughty/Nice list? Seal the Nice deal with the gift of candy.
FRESHLY-BAKED BREAD AND SYRUPS @ Naborhood Bakery & Cafe
Show your holiday-party host/hostess that (s)he’s the mostess with a delicious loaf of freshly baked bread, or butter up even the crankiest of neighbors with some of the best syrup they’ve ever had.
GIFT CARDS @ Archibald’s Restaurant
That hard-to-buy-for friend can always use a night out. Treat them to dinner at Archibald’s Restaurant.
Oh Boy, it’s Toys!
We mustn’t forget this must-have category. Here are a couple of ideas for your youngsters to give their friends or each other that won’t break the bank.
BEANIES @ Storybook Nook
Of course, storybooks are well stocked and make an excellent gift, but you’ll also find furry friends that just love to cozy up in a stocking on Christmas Eve.
HOT ITEMS @ Santa’s Toys
When asked what the big sellers were this year, this was the answer. It’s a bitty R.C. car and a sequin mermaid. You’re welcome! :)
Decorating Done Right
HANDMADE TOUCHES @ Posh Paperie
There’s still time to add a handmade touch to your holiday party decor and gift wrap. Let the elves at Posh Paperie lend a hand.
