Holiday Wrap-Up in Lincoln, NE – 2018
The countdown to Christmas has begun! We are “wrapping up” our holiday series this month with advice on how to make it through this busy time—from packing in all of the festive parties and events, to getting all of the last-minute plans and shopping handled. If you’re looking for suggestions regarding any of those things, you’re in the right place! There are so many great local businesses (emphasis on LOCAL!) that have just what you need to make the season merry and bright.
All across Lincoln there are fantastic places to find all of those last-minute gifts or handy services. At Strictly Business, we are passionate about supporting and promoting local businesses; and not just the business, but the people behind the business. It feels good to know the people behind the product. When you resist the urge to online shop and you choose local products and services, you enjoy a connection you would not otherwise have. Think about how you celebrate when a favorite local business succeeds and you mourn when it’s forced to shut its doors. As consumers, we make the difference. This is an important message we wanted to share this time of year when the most shopping is happening. Keep reading to be reminded of all the local stores and services in Lincoln that can help you master the holidays.
What’s Under Your Tree?
While the holidays allow us to spend time with our friends and family with fun celebrations and gatherings, we also experience the stress of finding gifts for everyone on the list. Of course, there are financial pressures, but also just the matter of finding the right gift for the right person. If you’re getting your holiday shopping done last minute, your stress level is even higher.
When it comes to last-minute gifts, jewelry is a good place start looking. Sparkly and shiny are a staple during the holidays. Sartor Hamann Jewelers has been voted “Lincoln’s Choice Jeweler” and “Best of Lincoln” for years, which is a testament to their commitment to providing quality service in our community. At Sartor Hamann Jewelers, they pride themselves on helping their customers find gifts for the most special times in their lives, and there are so many gorgeous gemstones and styles to choose from right now, with special one-of-a-kind pieces in stock just for the holiday season. You’ll find all of the top brands and so many different styles to suit varying tastes. Sartor Hamann also specializes in creating custom pieces. Dazzle that special person this year with a unique piece that they will treasure for years to come!
Through December, Sartor Hamann is having a once-in-a-life-time holiday sale! They are liquidating stock up to 70% off to make room for the latest jewelry of 2019. There’s something for everyone from men’s watches to diamonds and bracelets and pendants! Limited financing is also offered. Maybe buy yourself a little something for being good all year!
“Gifts are our specialty at Rachel’s Boutique,” says Cherie Travis with Rachel’s Boutique. “You’ll find many one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, clothing you don’t see at department stores, and we are more than happy to provide personal assistance with gift selection. While shopping for the perfect gift you can also find the perfect outfit or accessory for the holiday season!
On Thursday, December 6 starting at 2 p.m., we will be hosting a holiday open house event where you can get many gift ideas. We will specifically be featuring the BLO Vintage jewelry line at the event. There will even be a special designer appearance from BLO Vintage’s Allison Stackpole. Allison’s BLO Vintage line is handcrafted jewelry that features various types of whistles, harmonicas, and pitch pipes. She can create one for you on the spot! Customers who purchase a BLO Vintage product will also receive a free gift. These are one of the best gifts you can give. It’s not just a whistle; it is a personal safety device that happens to be pretty.
There will also be a Brighton holiday open house on December 18. Attendees can choose a Brighton locket, frame, or ornament and our Brighton representative will download a picture of their choice in it. There will be lots of last-minute gift items available at these events so don’t miss out!”
Rachel’s Boutique, located at 7121 Pioneers Blvd., is a women’s clothing, jewelry, and accessory store, carrying top lines, such as Brighton, Paige Wallace, Simon Seabage, Multiples, Trollbeads, Waxing Poetic, Joseph Ribkoff, and Nebraska apparel and accessories.
Also nearby is Habitat, Lincoln’s premier kitchen, and gift store. “We will be offering several exciting events and special deals this holiday season,” announces Jana Clark with Habitat. “As you stroll through our store, you’ll find a nice variety of unique gift items as well as beautiful and functional serving pieces for any of your upcoming gatherings. For the cook in your family, we have quite an assortment of items ranging from the kitchen staples to innovative gadgets. In fact, we have a whole wall full of fun culinary gadgets that can be gifted independently or bundled together. We can put together any type of gift basket from our huge selection of goodies, including holiday coffee, caramels, brittle, cocoa, bread mixes, gingerbread house kits, shortbread cookies, olive oil and soup mixes. Customers have been raving about Olivelle, a line of gourmet food, featuring premium quality oils, and vinegars on-tap, dipping herbs, artisan sea salts, spices, and rubs. We are very proud to become the first and only retailer of Olivelle products in Nebraska. No need to order online! Just swing by Habitat.
As a fun opportunity for men who may be struggling with their shopping ventures, we will be hosting a Guys’ Night Out at Habitat on Tuesday, December 4 with brats, beverages, and free gift wrapping. This is a great chance to get that special gift for her—the one on her Habitat wish list that she keeps talking about—and take it home to put under the tree. Check out our Facebook page for more event details and special holidays deals!”
Buying local has benefits beyond mere convenience, such as interactive opportunities that allow you to really see what you’re buying before you make the purchase. Like the last couple businesses we heard from, James Plucknett with Four Star Card & Gift Gallery noted that when you support local business owners, you get a better level of service. “When you shop at our store, you get the service of a neighbor. It’s a personable experience. Plus, we have a lot of local-oriented items that you can only find here. We have four custom Nebraska charms for Pandora bracelets. In addition, we have “Legacy of Nebraska” playing cards that have been produced by Four Star Card & Gift Gallery with the approval and cooperation of Nebraska artist Todd A. Williams and the Nebraska 150 Foundation.”
Another local vendor is Moonlight Custom Screenprint and Embroidery. Owners David and Tammy Barth moved their office to 6101 Havelock Ave., STE 2B. While the company is based out of Kearney, they branched into their first Lincoln location in 2017. Moonlight has a large inventory available, including sweaters, hoodies, quarter-zips, and polos. There are also a variety of holiday designs to choose from if you’re interested in ordering something specific for the occasion. Keep Moonlight in mind for employee gifts. Consider ordering custom apparel for your business that has your company logo on it. Not only does this make for a good holiday gift, it helps brand your business!
From supplying merchandise for your next tour, to outfitting your family reunion, Moonlight Custom Screenprint and Embroidery promises quality in every order and neighborly customer service. They take care of everything from design to delivery and pride themselves on their timely completion.
If you’re shopping for someone who enjoys playing sports or exercising, do some Christmas shopping at Play It Again Sports. Play It Again Sports carries gear for any sport or fitness-related activity, and they buy, sell, and trade top brands such as Rawlings, Marucci, Wilson, CCM, Proform, and many more! The best part about this store is that you can recycle any quality used sports and fitness equipment that you don’t use anymore. This is great if you’re a parent shopping for your child. Kids outgrow sports equipment so fast but their old gear is still in great condition. So, clean out your cluttered garage, basement, or closet and sell or trade in used sports gear, offsetting the cost of your holiday shopping expenses!
Another classic option is getting someone a gift card. Gift cards don’t have to be a “cop-out” gift. If you know someone has a favorite place to shop or eat, why not give them the flexibility to shop for someone they like on their own time, or let their next couple meals be on you. PILLAR Restaurant Group has announced a unique holiday promotion: If you or a loved one enjoys any of the PILLAR Restaurant Group’s concepts, you can purchase a gift card that works at every restaurant. That means a single card can be used as payment for Venue Restaurant & Lounge, Piedmont Bistro by Venue, any of the five Lincoln Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs locations, and the most exciting, the brand new Cactus Modern Mexican & Cantina by Venue!
Cactus is a Mexican eatery and cantina, offering a new dining experience in Lincoln by serving up traditional Mexican dishes with a modern twist! The restaurant just opened in November and people are raving about how good the food is. As a family-oriented restaurant that utilizes fresh, locally-sourced ingredients to dish out an innovative Mexican cuisine, Cactus has got it figured out. Plus, the restaurant features an impressive cantina bar, private dining room, and a spacious patio. Treat yourself and your guests to Cactus Modern Mexican & Cantina by Venue!
Another gift that offers some flexibility is a Pogo Card. In November, Pogo Card released the 25th anniversary edition of the Pogo Card, featuring offers from various restaurants, businesses, and golf courses in the Lincoln area. For only $20, you can give someone access to deals at 150 local businesses. Talk about a perfect stocking stuffer! This would also make a good gift for a coworker.
In conjunction, the Pogo App has been completely redesigned and relaunched to bring users a better value and overall experience. The app brings convenient mobile access to many of the same offers as the printed Pogo Card, as well as more than 350,000 national discounts. With app location services enabled, the Pogo App allows users to see discounts near them, wherever they are!
In celebration of the new 2018-20 Pogo Card, you can now buy a Pogo Card and get access to the app for free with the donation of a new toy! This special holiday promotion goes until December 15 and can only be redeemed at the Pogo Card store (2655 S. 70th St., STE A). Pogo Card is a registered trademark of Gemar & Associates, Inc.
Spa services also make a desirable gift. Massage therapy promotes wellness and is a great way to relax and release, which your loved one will surely appreciate! Or get a gift for yourself, especially if you’re feeling overwhelmed with all the holiday planning. Give yourself a break. Massage therapy, in particular, is a wonderful way to relieve some of that holiday stress. It’s great as a gift for someone else or to yourself, and chair massages are a big hit at corporate events, including holiday parties.
“When gifting, keep in mind that at 5 Elements Massage anything is possible with a massage,” Erin Lange with 5 Elements Massage. “There are a lot of targeted techniques that can be applied depending on one’s specific needs. A massage is not just a ‘pampering once a year’ kind of thing; it has the power to boost your health and overall wellbeing in many ways if utilized correctly. Regular massages help with depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, stress, insomnia, aid in removing acute pain and in managing chronic pain, along with its positive effects on many other issues in our daily life. 5 Elements Massage offers a wealth of services including the ever-popular Swedish and deep-tissue massages, along with a much larger selection of modalities to pick from such as prenatal, heated bamboo, sports, hot stone, reflexology, fire cupping, salt or sugar scrubs, chocolate wraps, and more. Additionally, aromatherapy is available and can be added to all modalities for extra relaxation.
This holiday season I’ll be offering various spa-like specials you can pick and choose from, with a variety of bundles in addition to all of the individual services that are available. These are perfect if you know more than one massage would be beneficial or if you want to treat yourself or someone else to a little something extra with a massage, such as a salt or sugar scrub with focus work. If you know someone who suffers from headaches often or works way too much in life, perhaps the idea of a massage could be worth looking into as a gift. Then there’s always a gift certificate, available in dollar amounts or the exact price of an appointment.”
Or, how about giving the gift of an experience or an event that can be attended together! People have too many ‘things’ nowadays and oftentimes they would much rather enjoy an experience. This is how memories are made, and memories are priceless!
Every December, the Lied Center for Performing Arts presents an impressive lineup of performances, and tickets to these amazing shows make an excellent gift—or a gift card to the Lied Center to use on any upcoming show. Again, it’s nice to have flexibility.
A notable show, specifically with the holidays in mind, is Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by GRAMMY® Award winner Chip Davis. This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the Christmas Tour and release of “Mannheim Steamroller Christmas,” an album that revolutionized the holiday season music category. In addition to being a holiday tradition for many families, the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Tour regularly attracts repeat attendance from multigenerational guests and is one of the longest running tours in the music industry. With a soundtrack that’s designed to bring the audience all feels, the show is referred to as the top-selling act ever in the holiday music category by Business Week.
The Lied Center, known as “Nebraska’s Home for the Arts,” is so excited to bring this show to Lincoln that they just added a second performance on December 20; one at 3 p.m. and another one at 7:30 p.m. Gift cards are also available for shows like Paul Shaffer; Nebraska Jazz Orchestra (January 10, 2019), The Broadway Princess Party (January 19), The King and I (February 1 – 2), Purple Reign – The Prince Tribute Show (March 16), and many more.
Tickets, starting at $49, to these performances are available on the Lied Center’s website, by phone at (402) 472-4747, or at the Lied Center box office located at 301 N. 12th St. UNL students can purchase tickets at a 50% discount with a valid NCard, and children 18 and younger are eligible for half-price tickets.
“Giving the gift of a fun experience is also an excellent idea for someone who wants to get something for their group of friends or perhaps their immediate family,” adds Jen Miseno with Sun Valley Lanes. “Creating memories while doing something special lasts a lot longer than any tangible gift, in my opinion. This is why I encourage people to check out Sun Valley Lanes.
Spoil your group this holiday season by treating them to Sun Valley Lane’s exclusive Hyper Bowling games. HyperBowling is a new way to play, where anyone can win a game, regardless of skill level, and play to win!
If you’re specifically shopping for someone who loves bowling, consider surprising them with a Player’s Club membership at Sun Valley Lanes. As a part of the membership, every time the recipient visits the center, they will earn points for every dollar spent. Each point can be converted to QCash to be used within Sun Valley Lanes, including Splitz Bar and Grill and The Pro Shop! Earn enough points and get they’ll move up to the Player’s Club Gold Level or even Platinum Level, which includes free bowling as one of the perks. Check out all the details about member benefits on the Sun Valley Lane’s website.
When you get someone or a group of people an experience as a gift, chances are it will turn into a tradition. Traditions lend a certain significance, spirit, and texture to our everyday lives.
“Start a new holiday tradition this year by getting a group together at Burton & Tyrrell’s Flowers for a chance to create your own decorative arrangement!” Encourages Gary Tharnish with Burton & Tyrrell’s. “We offer a Friends and Flowers workshop, which allows you and your friends to immerse yourselves into the world of flowers and greenery. Fresh or silk flowers can be used to create a holiday-themed bouquet. Your group is also welcome to bring wine and snacks to make the experience even more enjoyable!”
In addition, Christmas flowers from Burton & Tyrrell’s Flowers in Lincoln are the best way to send Christmas cheer! Flowers and poinsettia plants are a great way to spread joy throughout the season, but also make quick and easy party decor. Burton & Tyrrell’s Flowers can help you with any Christmas styles or colors with our Christmas decor accessories. Need a centerpiece or a Christmas wreath for your party? Burton & Tyrrell’s Flowers has it, and more! There is an entire page of Christmas arrangements on Burton & Tyrrell’s Flowers website, just go to the ‘Holidays’ tab!
After you’ve shopped for all your human friends, don’t forget about your furry ones! They will probably be the easiest to shop for; there truly is nothing like the unconditional love of a pet. However, in all seriousness, you really can get something meaningful for the animal in your life.
“After spending thousands of dollars at the vet and losing two precious dogs to illness, we decided to take a closer look at what was in the food people feed their pets every day.” Explains Kelly Donnel with Pet Central Station. “What we found inspired us to open up our own store in order to give dogs and cats a fighting chance for their immune system and overall health. Making the right choices regarding your pet’s diet is the single most effective way to prolong and improve their life. By being conscious of important factors like your pet’s age, medical issues, the brand of food they are currently eating, and any special dietary restrictions or sensitivities to which your pet may be prone, you have all the information you need to provide your pet with the most nutritious and healthy diet. If you’re already feeding your pet quality food products, we have a selection of entertaining brand-name toys and accessories that would make a fun gift as well for your furry friend.
We will be hosting our first annual Christmas party at Pet Central Station on December 19. This is a great opportunity to check out our selection of nutritionally sound food products. Plus, there will be Christmas photographs with Santa! Santa will actually be at Pet Central Station several times during December to pose with you and your pets, so keep up with us on social media or call the store for more details.”
Ringing In The New Year!
Let’s talk about holiday parties… while there are probably already a few lined up for this month, there is always room for more celebration. How will you be ringing in the new year?
“If you haven’t made New Year’s Eve plans yet, consider booking one of our party packages,” suggests Jennifer Davis-Korn with 48 Bowl, Inc. “We have four different party options for all ages, hours, and budgets. If you would like to have a fun, early celebration without a lot of extras, consider our NYE Family Fun Package, with includes two hours of bowling, shoe rentals for up to six people, a 60 oz pitcher of soda, and family-friendly music and videos for only $60 per lane. This package is available in two-hour blocks, starting as early as 12:30 p.m.
If you want a family-friendly package with extras, the NYE Family Glo-Zone Package from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at Parkway is our most popular party and sells out quickly every year. for $120 per lane, you get 2.5 hours of Glo Zone Bowling, shoe rentals for up to six guests, two pitchers of soda, two large pizzas, glow party favors, music, videos, and an early countdown. If you’re looking for a late party for adults, we offer NYE Rockin’ Red Pin at Hollywood Bowl and NYE Rock & Bowl Glo Zone at Parkway. These parties both begin at 9:30 p.m. and go until 12:30 a.m.
If you have a house full of people for the holidays, bowling is a great activity to get everyone out and active together. 48 Bowl, Inc. (Parkway Lanes and Hollywood Bowl) has a few holiday offerings perfect for groups. Our Winter Break Bowling Special is two games of bowling and shoe rental for only $8 per person and is offered weekdays from open to 6 p.m. at both bowling centers when Lincoln Public Schools is on winter break.
This is our busiest time of year, so to help you get on a lane more quickly, we recommend the following: 1) Call ahead to verify lane availability before coming to the center. We may be full with leagues, office holiday parties or daycares at various times. 2) We usually get a rush immediately after lunch. The best times to come are in the morning or after 3 p.m. 3) We recommend a max of six bowlers to a lane. If you have a larger group, consider making lane reservations. Details can be found on our website.”
January is becoming a very popular month for holiday parties. November and December have proven to be very hectic months, so people are opting to hold off until after the holidays to host their festivities.
Specifically, regarding corporate holiday parties, Matthew Rogge with Talon Room advises, “It’s become common for events that are focused on client entertaining during the holidays to take precedence during the holidays, with events to thank your employees for their hard work the past year following in January and February. Alternatively, both types could be well-positioned in the beginning of 2019 and even beyond.
After the holidays and everything has settled down a bit, you can dedicate more time to your party arrangements. There are a lot more open dates to choose from too when it comes to booking your venue and vendors of choice. Likewise, your clients and/or employees will be able to enjoy themselves more without having to worry about everything else that’s going on in their lives.
At the Talon Room, we have an ideal amount of space to host large and small groups alike. It’s an intimate venue with a lot of character, which lends well to all types of décor. We offer all-inclusive packages that include the space, food and drinks, decorations, and live entertainment courtesy of our deejay, all at one price.”
In agreement, Sara Reyes Sudman with Fields Floral adds, “The advantage of hosting your party after the holidays is getting to actually enjoy the holidays, without the additional stress of planning something. Plus, it’s always fun to have something to look forward to in January.
That being said, all you need to put together a quick office party or for entertaining guests in your home to celebrate the holidays is great food, drinks, and great company. Of course, adding a few decorations doesn’t hurt either.
If you are crunched for time, let us help you. We can come to your home and decorate your tree or all throughout, and the same applies to your party venue or office space. We decorate several churches around Lincoln and create many centerpieces for various parties. We also have a lot of seasonal holiday arrangements that make great centerpieces and each Friday, we offer $10 bouquets, so stop in and take one home.”
Besides holiday arrangements, Fields Floral offers gifts for every personality, including drink enthusiasts, cooks, writers, baby, gardeners, and pet lovers. One of their most popular products is the Organic Grow Kit, which allows you to grow herbs in the comfort of your kitchen. Stop by their shop, located by Union College, today!
The basics of entertaining remain the same in your home as they do at any other venue around town. Key details to consider include atmosphere, food, drinks, and entertainment.
If you’ll be welcoming guests into your home this year and will be cooking dinner, let Country Sliced Ham help you out in the kitchen. Country Sliced Ham offers signature ham, bacon, turkey breasts, and other daily specials as a part of their lunch and deli menu. As ham is a popular holiday entrée, order yours in advance by calling Country Sliced Ham. Your guests will be very impressed!
As for desserts, give the sweet tooths at the table something to drool over by ordering your holiday treats from Butterfly Bakery. Butterfly Bakery began in March of 2009. From fresh breakfast pastries, decadently decorated sugar cookies, or an original occasion for your special event, anything you can think up, they can create. Butterfly Bakery products are always made fresh, from scratch, using quality ingredients.
“Our innovative designs and attention to detail truly make every item a piece of edible artwork,” notes Katie O’Connor with Butterfly Bakery. “We will do our best to make sure every detail of your creation is absolutely unforgettable, adding that special touch to your holiday dinner spread.”
Allow your guests to wash down their pastries with a good ole cup of joe! Nothing pairs quite as good. R.U. Nuts and Ahroma Specialty Coffee is unique in the coffee industry because they flavor only specialty grade, top-quality coffee for the best tasting cup possible. Or if you want a delicious strong cup, their French Roast and Colombian are wonderful to go with any dessert. Roasted here in Lincoln, keep a pot of Ahroma brewing all day long to keep guests happy and alert! Ahroma coffee makes a wonderful hostess gift, and our Coffee Lover’s gift basket can be shipped to family or clients anywhere.
“If you are coming as a guest to a party, offer to bring something,” says Charlotte Ralston with R.U. Nuts and Ahroma Specialty Coffee. “If you’re anything like me, you don’t like showing up empty handed. A lot of people take this opportunity to bring a nice bottle of wine, but what about bringing coffee? When you bring in a gift that’s able to be shared by everyone, it’s often something that they remember and will be very thankful for. Every day is a holiday when you’re drinking Ahroma Specialty Coffee!
Don’t forget about our snacks, either! R.U. Nuts trail mixes and roasted nuts are perfect to keep on hand. Taking one of our food and coffee filled gift baskets along to a holiday gathering or having one conveniently shipped to arrive will make you the most popular person at the party! R.U. Nuts gift baskets are filled with gourmet chocolates, nuts, coffee, and more, so you get huge value and variety. They are a tangible and welcome way to say ‘Happy Holidays!’ or ‘Thank you!’”
Speaking of food, a great restaurant in town to keep your eye on is Stur 22. With a poppin’ event calendar and a delicious menu, this is the place to be. Take your guests to Stur 22 if you don’t feel like doing all the cooking yourself this year. Not to mention, they will likely have something really fun planned at their location for NYE.
Stur 22 Lounge is an attractive and vibrant gathering place. The lounge is a chic and welcoming space serving a unique and colorful array of cuisine’s incorporating Caribbean and West African flavors. Their drinks and cocktails menus features a lively and tasty selection of mojitos and our own hand crafted signature cocktails.
The great room has a stylish and attractive bar and the soft and inviting furniture represent a mix of colors from Africa and countries in the Caribbean. The artistic and electric environment will also feature upbeat music diverse from the 80’s, 90’s, today’s, Jazz, Caribbean, and African playing in the background but always at an appropriate and reasonable level. Stur 22 Lounge is a place where adults can mingle, network, and socialize with people of like minds and like ideas in a respectful, clean, and enjoyable environment.
Another fun memory just waiting to be made is found at Graduate Lincoln. Since the hotel installed three Topgolf Swing Suites in their lobby, people have the option to swing a golf club with friends (and pros!) all year round. With Full Swing golf simulator technology in each bay, you and your group can rent out one to play a round of gold while enjoying food and drinks from the hotel’s restaurant, John J’s.
“We’re situated in a great spot with plenty of action within walking distance,” Tom Benes with Graduate Lincoln adds. “With the Haymarket, downtown, and the nearby Railyard District coming alive during the holidays, especially NYE. Graduate Lincoln is the perfect place to gather.”
Arrive In Style
If you’re going out on the town for NYE this year, why not arrive in style? Leisure Limousine & Sedan is your premier transportation service, offering a wide array of vehicles to ensure the best fit for your group. Their fleet includes a limo bus, seating up to 34 passengers, providing the ultimate experience—upscale features include stunning interior design elements, leather seating, a great sound system, and even two 42” televisions!
“Remember to book transportation for you and your guests,” says Lori Hiebner with Leisure Limousine & Sedan. “It is always a good idea to have a car ready and waiting after the party in case you have a guest that had a little too much to drink. Let us pick everyone up, keep everyone safe and keep the party rolling!”
In addition to stylish transportation, make sure you’re looking fresh and glamourous too! The holidays are filled with photo opts, so you’ll want to look you best. Satisfying a niche in the beauty and cosmetic care industry is LadiiEgypt’s Brow Paradise®. The salon officially entered the Lincoln market this September, offering semi-permanent cosmetic eyebrow procedures and non-laser tattoo removal, customized to each individual’s needs. Eyebrow services at LadiiEgypt® include 3D Hair Strokes (Microblading), Combo Brows (Microshading), and Ombré Powder Brows.

LadiiEgypt’s Brow Paradise® wants to celebrate the Holidays with each of you, so they are going to be gifting each client who comes in before the New Year kicks in with a $100 gift certificate! Everyone deserves a little extra cheer and happiness, even if it’s as simple as getting your eyebrows done!
That’s a wrap, folks! We hope you have the most wonderful Christmas and NYE with your friends and family. Gifts aren’t everything, but they can be creatively given and received. The most important thing is making lasting memories with the people you love. There is truly so much to celebrate! We’ll see you next year!
