The holidays are just around the corner + this year you may want to do your gift buying as early as possible. Hanukkah starts Sun., Nov. 28, Christmas is 47 days aways, and Kwanzaa starts on Sun., Dec. 26. Long story short — we’ve got some shopping to do. Here’s our curated list of 40 quali-tree gift ideas.
On the Editor’s list
This year, we’re shopping at House of Swank + Edge of Urge, plus adding some locally-made Usu Candles to the cart. However, the details of what exactly is on the holiday shopping list cannot be shared — the recipients might be reading this right now. Hey, mom + dad. 👋
