Holiday Gifts for All Ages and Holiday Outfits--No matter how you celebrate the holidays, most traditions involve some gift-giving which can be wonderful and stressful. My hope is that you'll be able to maintain a generous and cheerful heart as you power through your gift list, since the real point is simply to say you care. Just looking around getting ideas is an act of kindness toward your gift recipient: Who are you? What would you find delightful? How can I add to your life? The good news is there are many good gift options for anyone on your list, and you get the privilege of choosing the ones that work for your taste and your budget.
Check out all our upcoming events to celebrate the season and making holiday shopping the festive time it was meant to be. Be sure to join us for our annual Magical Holiday Party December 6, part of Temescal Art / Hop First Fridays. Enjoy Bakesale Betty snacks and special party discounts, and the usual holiday family fun!
