With all of the tree trimming, cookie baking and partygoing, there is so much to do during the holidays that it's easy to leave shopping for Christmas presents until the last minute. But by then, the malls and chain stores are usually chaotic and the mere thought of battling crowds is exhausting.
Here are some ideas for easy gifts that can be bought locally and require little stress:
- Go to Mike's Pastry, located at 300 Hanover Street, and order a festive cake or box of cookies that would be a delicious complement to holiday dinners. There are also jelly beans and assorted items for the holidays.
- Go to Twlight Boutique, located at 12 Fleet Street, for festive clothing and accessories. The phone number of the shop is 617-523-8008.
