AOA's holiday gift guide

Three_little_pigs.jpg

These little piggies are on the AOA holiday gift guide.

OK gang, we're down to the wire on this whole holiday shopping thing. It is officially the time of year when those who haven't finished shopping (or started) might begin to panic.

No need.

We're kind of big on thoughtful gifts here at AOA, so in case you still haven't been able to think of the right gift for someone on your list, we've been compiling a list for you. If you've missed them, after the jump you'll find a list of local gifts we think would be fun to give (or get).

Got some fun favorites that aren't on the list? Help an elf out and post your suggestions.

Comments

Great suggestions, but might I add the fabulous gift shop at The Albany Institute of History and Art? You can buy all kinds of great gifts from handmade scarves, jewelry and pottery to calendars, ornaments and toys for the kids. Best of all AIHA members receive a 10% discount on their purchases. By shopping at Albany Institute you support your community and the arts!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

MassMoca has always been a huge hit with the assorted nieces and nephews I've hosted. You can combine it with a lunch at one of the places over there, too. Cooperstown is also a fun day trip. Whether or not she's into baseball doesn't matter, the town is charming and the Farmer's Museum is worth a visit.
