Luckily, we’re here to help you with some heavy lifting and have rounded up four excellent emergency gift options; all mindfully made by lovely local makers and costing less than a bottle of fancy vino they won’t remember drinking.
Even better, simply add a note in your order at checkout that your purchase is a gift and we’ll make sure it arrives on your doorstep wrapped real nice. No more last-minute sticky tape wrestling for you!
So, without further ado, read on for four MM products to keep stashed up your chimney this silly season.
