For the parent looking to
get back into shape

With Thanksgiving in the rear-view mirror and Christmas and New Years just ahead, it’s been hard to find the time to workout and get back into ship-shape! If the parent in your life is looking for a great way to get back into shape why not get them a membership at HotWorx for some hot yoga, get some personalized training at Discover Strength, or boxing classes at Title Boxing Club for a more a healthy start to 2023! You can also never go wrong with workout outfits or a gift card from Athleta  at the Shoppes!


For the cool aunt/uncle

We all have that aunt or uncle that are way too cool! They have the coolest gadgets, interests and taste in everything. The only way to out-cool this member of the family is to get them something special that will blow their mind. Why not head to Down in the Valley to get them vinyls and unique gifts!


For the grandparent 
that has everything 

Grandparents give us so much, why not show them how much we appreciate them by getting them on-of-a-kind locally made organic products from the last Farmer’s Market of the 2023? Make sure to mark it down in your calendar as Dec. 20 is your last chance to get your hands on artisan small batch wool & yarn, gourmet dog treats, some goats-milk soap and so much more. If they truly have everything why not make a donation in their name to Cross Services!

Look into passes for skiing, snowboarding and tubing! If your kid prefers some indoor fun why not look into a gift card for indoor go-karting at ProKart!



For the work bestie
