You’ve got less than two weeks to go. All the easy gifts have been bought.
The only people left on your list are The Ones.
You know, those folks who have everything. Who go out and buy what they want. Or who you just can’t seem to make happy.
It’s time to think outside the box.
These hard-to-please peeps may have everything, but they sure haven’t done everything.
And that’s where the awesomeness of Louisville comes in.
Put back the scalp massager and return the slippers. Don’t give your dear relative another Goodwill contribution, give them an experience. Louisville is full of local businesses that have plenty to offer.
