The holidays are right around the corner and that means the inevitable holiday rush. Every year I try my best to plan ahead on holiday gift purchases, yet I always seem to be rushed regardless of what I do. I love shopping local during the holiday season, especially while the kids are in school. The Downtown Holiday Open House is a great time to get gift ideas while strolling through the downtown shops and seeing what catches your eye. My kids are still young so it’s fun for them to point out what they want while I make a mental list in my head and plan to return at a later date.
I love heading back while they are in school. That way I can take my time and even pick up a few extra items here and there. Grandpa Shorter’s Gifts, it’s new sister store The Katydid and the ever classic J.W. Shorter & Son’s Mercantile each offer FREE gift wrapping by friendly staff members while you take your time picking out and choosing holiday gifts. My husband also loves this service because well, he can’t wrap a gift to save his life and Grandpa Shorter’s ‘elves’ do an impeccable job!
