The Nest has great vintage gifts of so many types. Vintage couches, blankets, clothes, dishes, books, & all sorts of decor. I love giving gifts from this local shop. Junkee’s in another shop in town that has items like vintage toys, furniture, & tons of collector items. You can’t got wrong getting a gift from either of these places.

Something Brewed

Or to one of our local coffee shops, like Old World, The Hub, Coffeebar, Magpie, or Vertical Coffee Roasters to get them a bag of beans to brew at home. Throw in a gift card, tee, or mug & you just won Christmas!

Something Chocolate

Locally made chocolate, what a treat! Sugar Love Chocolates inside The Basement has the best flavors with such great detailing in their decorations. Dorinda’s Chocolates have a wide assortments & all the classics. Get a bag of both & be the judge of who is better!

I hope you enjoy the last few days to shop! Remember, no matter what you get them, they will be thrilled that you thought of them in the first place.
