Buckle up, buttercups, we’re going headfirst into the merriment and mayhem of the holiday season. It’s fun, it’s spirited and it can also leave you feeling like you just got run over by Santa and his eight (not so) tiny reindeer. Well lucky for you, I’ve gathered some of the best local gifts and getups to get you through another season of soirees—which means you can finally enjoy that long winter’s nap.
Hot tip: Simple yet thoughtful, a host or hostess gift is always a must. And speaking from experience, do yourself a solid and write that thank you note as soon as you get home from the party. Otherwise, you’ll likely start 2023 with a stack of unused stationery.
