Use our 100+ “Outside the Box” gift ideas (below) and Edgewood Chamber Business Directory to find local businesses, or… Here’s an easy plan for wrapping up the final 7 days before Christmas and keep your stress level low:

MONDAY (12/19) – Order holiday pies at Chili Hills Restaurant or Dough Re Mi Bake Shop. Stop into The Frozen Yogurt Parlor for 1/2 price quart of holiday flavors (freeze ’til needed) and add a gift card/mug set if desired.

TUESDAY (12/20) – Give them gifts that last all year long, activities like annual membership to Wildlife West or Founders Ranch Shotgun Club or MAGS indoor range.  Or, make life a little easier with local news subscriptions, or computer services that come direct to them.

WEDNESDAY (12/21) – How about a gift of auto services or home repair  they’ve been putting off? Or a little pampering for them?

THURSDAY (12/22) – Some traditional New Mexico gifts or jewelry plus  FREE gift-wrapping, look no further than Trails West.  Don’t forget to pick up your pies (you ordered them on Monday, right?)

FRIDAY (12/23) – Unique finds can be had at our local retail specialty stores . Then, pick up a take-home dinner and relax, you deserve it.

SATURDAY (12/24) – Wrap the gifts, make cards announcing specialty services (add a bow), and pat yourself on the back. You did it, stayed sane and supported your local community in the process!

SUNDAY (12/25) – open gifts with family & friends, smile, laugh, hug and enjoy! Merry Christmas!
