There is still time to find the perfect holiday gift for everyone on your list!
For the dad who insists (every year) that he just needs socks
Alpine Shop: Go ahead and get him the socks but throw in something more fun like a new pocket knife, hammock, or Yeti tumbler. Barred Owl Butcher: The gift your dad didn’t realize he wanted – a holiday basket from Barred Owl. Quantities are limited, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 573-442-9323 to reserve yours (ask for Brandy or Meaghan).
For the mom who ‘already has everything she wants’
Top Ten Wines: Top Ten Wines has 2500+ different wines… that’s a lot of options. Let the team help you pick out the perfect bottle for your mom, or if you’re feeling especially generous, you can treat her to PV’s Picks Wine of the Month Club. [Top Ten also has a large whiskey and gin selection if your mom isn’t a wine-drinker.]
The Southern Rose: This local boutique has a huge selection of cute gifts including holiday shirts, ornaments, jewelry, home decor, accessories, and more. We guarantee you’ll be able to find the perfect gift for mom here.
For the one who introduces you to new music
The Blue Note: Check out the list of upcoming events and get a pair of concert tickets for that friend of yours who loves discovering new artists.
Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival: Pre-sale tickets are available now for the weekend for only $130! The festival includes over 30 artists performing throughout the weekend along with a variety of delicious food vendors. Last year’s musicians included John Prine, Emmylou Harris, Leon Bridges, Band of Horses, and Gary Clark, Jr.
For the college student
True/False Film Fest: Every student should experience True/False at least once! Simple passes are on sale for $100 and allow the passholder to reserve up to 10 tickets for films Friday-Sunday. [True/False is coming up March 1-4, 2018]
Lucky’s Market: Give the gift of groceries to your college student – pick up a gift card in-store or have one mailed out by calling the home office at 303-530-0782, extension 147.
For the child who is technically a pet

For the one who is always eating
Peggy Jean’s Pies: Peggy Jean’s does this cool thing where they will SHIP PIES TO YOU. The pies come in cute little jars, and they are just as delicious as a standard-size pie. Of course, you can also order a normal pie to pick up from the shop.
GoPo: This gourmet popcorn is available at Plume, and offers flavors like Snapped Ched, Cookies N Cream, 1/2 Caramel, Everything Tiger, Slowburn Kettle, and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt.
For your grandparents
Give your grandparents a special gift made by you at The Canvas on Broadway or Confetti Craft Co. The Canvas has several holiday paintings coming up, and they walk you through each step (perfect for those of us who aren’t artists). Confetti Craft Co. gives you the option of unique projects like wooden coasters, string art, a dog leash, and a mason jar planter.
For your boss
The Candy Factory: The Candy Factory has everything from mugs and holiday to decor to fudge and, of course, candy! You’ll be able to find your boss a small, easy gift here.
