One week until Christmas, and I'm definitely into the holiday spirit this year as I've enjoyed reading all of Holly Hendricks' holiday tips. While my house is decorated, I still have a few last-minute holiday gifts to purchase. Are you like me and have a few gifts to run out and buy? Did you forget about a gift for your boss, co-worker or Secret Santa? Are you racking your brain for a few ideas? What about something different? How about a homemade/handmade gift from a local business right here in Hendricks County? Well, I've got you covered with five places to get your last-minute holiday, handmade gift. 59 W. Marion St., Danville, phone (317) 745-4200 For: The person who enjoys a gift with that personal touch. I enjoy receiving gift baskets (a fun basket with a mix of items) and why not go to a store who knows all about designing and packaging the perfect gift basket. What you'll find: Gift baskets ready made or for you to design. Need a few suggestions? How about going with a theme like a foodie gift basket, candy gift basket or a movie gift basket.
