While this year may look and feel a whole lot different, there's no reason December shouldn't still be filled with joy. We may not be able to cozy up around the tree together, but here at 417 we still want to spread the love. For this year's (virtual) office holiday party, we've kept our white elephant gift exchange alive and well. The rules are simple: spend no more than $20 and purchase your gift from a locally-owned business.
From bottles of booze to home decor, gift cards and more, we're all so lucky to have been able to give and receive these tokens of joy this year. If you're still on the hunt for a last minute gift, look no further than our staffers' picks!
From us and ours to you and yours: here's to healthy holidays and a very happy New Year (emphasis on the new)!
