Can’t stop shopping yet

You listen all year long and carefully take notes on what your eldest son or oldest friend wants under their tree this year. But if you thought that process was time-consuming, what about choosing a gift for that hard to define recipient—this close to the big day?

Instead of purchasing a coffee mug for your boss, or bringing a fruitcake to your hairdresser, we’ve got some ideas that are sure to put you on their favorite gift-giver list. 

For your neighbor
Somehow your neighbor seems to always buy a few more boxes of cookies from your daughter than the amount of wrapping paper you purchase from their son, and they always have a cup of sugar on hand for your wife’s baking needs. Repay their kindness by delivering a treat from Emporium Pies to their doorstep.

For your child’s teacher
We know that every teacher is a work-a-holic when it comes to making sure our children get the best education. Why not treat her to a choco-holic cupcake from Smallcakes Cupcakery in Southlake to say thank you. Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing topped with valrhona chocolate sprinkles sums up your thankfulness nicely. 

For your boss
While you may think a mug displaying “World’s Greatest Boss” will get you kudos this year, try for something a little less obvious. The new PGA Tour Superstore in Southlake offers golf lessons and club fitting. Why not give your boss a gift card he can use toward improving his game? This is definitely a gift that keeps on giving year round.  

For your hairdresser
With a profession that requires her to stand for most of the day, your hairdresser will enjoy some “time off.” Give her a gift certificate to a spa for some much needed rest and relaxation. Corinthian Wellness Spa in Southlake offers a variety of treatments you can use to create the perfect spa package for your favorite stylist.
