Think outside the box

We’ve all done it. You know what I’m talking about. When you need a last minute Christmas gift so you go scour the aisles of Target looking for a mug that *fingers crossed* has something to do with an inside joke you and that person have printed on it or one that is at least their favorite color or has their initial.

And just to be clear, absolutely no hate against mugs. We are pro-mug over here! But picture this: What if you made your very own mug to give to that special someone? That way, it could look just the way you want it to and be completely covered in inside jokes, favorite colors and initials!

This year in Southie, we are focusing on the experiences that you could either give to someone else, that you can attend to make a gift for someone else, or that you can just attend because #treatyourself.

Check out these crafty and creative classes that can contribute to your Very Merry Experience-mas, while supporting local businesses!

“At our Clay Lounge Holiday Night community members will be able to hand build or wheel throw two items that will be ready in time as holiday gifts for their loved ones. At In Good Company we believe in intentional gifting – giving gifts that are filled with meaning and there really is no better gift than this one! Not only does the recipient receive a meaningful experience, they are also able to pass that experience on to another loved one through a piece of handmade pottery made with their own hands!”
