Boise Weekly

GIFT GUIDE 2016

your path to the perfect gifts this holiday season ‘Twas just weeks before Christmas and all through the city Leaves fell from the trees, making sidewalks look pretty. Celebration planning would soon be in high gear, Shoppers’ anxiety would be, too, as they wondered, “What do I get everybody this year?” The elves at Boise Weekly were saddened by the thought, They felt the holidays should be joyous, not full of tension and fraught. So they put their heads together and settled down for a long night of think. They brainstormed, they discussed, they had much to drink; Then, in a flash there appeared an idea so brilliant yet clear. It sprang from their heads like eight dashing reindeer, “A Gift Guide!” they shouted, “A Gift Guide!” they yelled, (“A shower,” said one, because by now, the rest of them smelled.) “We’ll ask local businesses to show us their best, And we’ll put all of their items in one book to put our readers’ minds to rest.” So, in Gift Guide 2016, you’ll find stuff for everyone on your list, And feel cheery about the holidays instead of Grinchlike and pissed. The elves at Boise Weekly hope this Gift Guide makes your season bright, Happy holidays to all and to all a good night! — A M Y AT K I N S

TICKETS TO THE NUTCRACKER Prices start at $38

It’s been more than 60 million years since dinosaurs ruled the earth, but they’ve never gone out of style.

For most people, there are two priorities for the holidays: have fun with family and don’t go broke. OE helps with both.

Ballet Idaho’s “The Nutcracker” is as much a part of the holidays as eating turkey, decorating trees and wrapping presents.
