The Baristanet Last Minute (Local) Holiday Gift Guide

Montclair wine bag, $24, Table Leg Home, 4 S. Fullerton, Montclair

Shopping local is always great, but during the last week of the holiday season, when the roads are crazy and malls are crowded, shopping local is the perfect escape from holiday madness. Here’s our gift guide with suggestions for gifts, stocking stuffers and more!

Check everyone off your holiday gift list, avoid the traffic and crowds, and even find time to enjoy a meal, coffee or some holiday libations at a favorite local eatery. And you’ll be treated to traditional holiday music on Church Street by Salvation Army musicians and at Watchung Booksellers, browse for best sellers while being serenaded by Julian Keenan.
