The countdown is on, and I’m sure your “to do” list resembles mine to some degree. While I have most things purchased and wrapped, a few gift evade me, and naturally, we’re at crunch time (plus add other holiday prep to the mess, and well – you know how it goes). So, that said, I wanted to throw a few other easy, local gift ideas your way, perhaps a few things we missed during Round 1.
If you’re running late (to a party, to Mom’s, etc.) and/or you’re completely stumped on what to get your uncle Bob, go with booze. From gifts card and accessories to Wine of the Month Club, you can find great holiday gift ideas here. (Disclaimer: Do also know when this is an inappropriate gift.)
For the winter sports fanatic, family (group gift) or that teenager with extra energy to burn this winter, get a gift card to Roundtop Mountain Resort. Even your season passholder will appreicate a gift card to Fireside Pub & Grill, the family will dig a day of tubing — and that teenager will burn energy galore riding the slopes by ski or snowboard. Click here for options.
Missy’s Ugly Cookies in Hummelstown recently decided to close their storefront, but she’s still doing cookie orders, which is my recommendation for the sweetest hostess gift or a mail-order gift for your best friend living in a different state.
Midtown Eats has this list of Midtown-centric shopping ideas and deals.
Hershey-Harrisburg Visitors Bureau blog holiday gift guide (by yours truly) has more local ideas.
Adams County Winery is selling wine gift sets to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. These gift sets are available in either sweet or dry and include two special 150th anniversary glasses available in this gift set only. Or, try Adams County Winery’s new chocolate wine.
Another great “in a pinch” gift idea is a gift card to a local restaurant. Many offer incentives for you, like if you buy $50 worth, you get a $5 or $10 card for you. Check out deals at Houlihan’s, Devon Seafood Grill, Cafe Magnolia, TJ Rockwell’s, Flinchy’s and more. Feel free to leave more gift card deals in the comments below.
Finally, my buddies at The Sports ‘Burger offer their own gift guide for the holidays.
