Indie Ogden’s Holiday Gift List week 3!
Christmas is on Friday, and if you are like me, you just realized you haven’t finished shopping, and you should probably get on that. For last minute gifts, you will definitely want to avoid big box stored unless you want to get trampled by moms on the verge of nervous breakdowns. Local stores are much more relaxing, and right now there are always great last minute deals.
For your family
You’re stressed, you’re busy, and your family is driving you insane. What you need is a fun adventure to take your mind off of the 50+ Christmas cookies you consumed at midnight and the growing pile of winter laundry…so many socks! Bailey’s Sleigh Rides is a fun way to get outside and enjoy the winter wonderland we live in. View elf and reindeer from the comfort of a sleigh and you can even pick out a Christmas tree!

For the fur babies
Ok, this one might be more for you than for your pets, but you don’t have to tell them that. Laundro-Mutt offers a relaxing grooming session for your fur baby and they can even do fancy cuts like faux doggy hawks and whatever a widget is. Grooming comes with a free photo magnet to commemorate that time your animal didn’t stink for 5 minutes.

For your bestie
Your bestie is your partner in crime, your therapist and your diary all in one. Treat them to a relaxing day (or 10!) at Crystal Hot springs. A punch pass is an excellent way to encourage them to soak, add an extra $10 to help them feel like a kid again in their heated water slide! The punch passes don’t expire until two years after purchase, so they have plenty of time to use it up.
For a co-worker
Have an office party coming up and not sure what to get? Grounds for Coffee has created kits you can put together and ones that are already made. Easy peasy! These baskets are filled with coffee or tea, syrups or honey and, of course, a mug to sip it out of. Nothing says ‘Thank you for not microwaving fish in the communal kitchen’ like a lovely local gift!
