It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is only a week away. Perhaps the beautiful fall foliage in Port Jefferson will be blanketed in snow and the holiday season will be in full swing. As you’re bustling around making last minute plans for Thanksgiving, I just wanted to remind you of the great local resources we have here in Port Jefferson that will make your holiday festivities unique.
Keep an eye out for the holiday window at Earring Tabu in Port Jefferson which will be transformed around Thanksgiving. It’s always my favorite sight to see! Some things just put you in the holiday spirit and it’s easy to be tempted by the beautiful window display promising the array of gifts offered inside. Everyone has a budget this time of year so be sure to sign up for their texting and email VIP program to be included in top secret sales that only last for a day or two (text TABU2 to 21242!). Oh, and did I mention they have beautiful, free gift wrapping?
If you want to keep your shopping local to Port Jefferson, but also enjoy the convenience of online shopping, many of our great local stores have websites which are easy to navigate and place orders. Lavender Fields has an awesome website and they always offer free shipping on purchases over $50.00. They even ship worldwide! Send a piece of Port Jefferson to loved ones on the other side of the world! Who wouldn’t love cozy jammies, a new robe or elegant accessories as a gift?
For your favorite beer enthusiast (there’s one on everyone’s list!) don’t forget to stuff their stocking with pint glasses from the new Port Jeff Brew Company. Pick up gift certificates for your selective loved ones and for those who enjoy instant gratification wrap up some of Port Jeff Brew Company’s newest beer, a whiskey barrel aged porter.
To decorate your Port Jefferson home for the holidays, make Greentique a stop for very unique, uncommon home goods. The price points are very competitive with what you’ll find anywhere else and you’ll be improving your well-being by purchasing environmentally safe goods. The owner pays special attention to buyer goods at savings she can pass along to the consumer. She is particularly sensitive to how cost conscious we all are in today’s economy which is a huge relief around the holidays!
Of course, there’s always one person on your list you’re stumped on for a gift idea. Boardwalk Games will have a creative solution for anyone, young or old. As we all know, local businesses are a big part of what makes Port Jefferson a friendly place to live. Make sure you stop in to a few of your favorites this season to keep them in business and to sustain the local economy.
Although we haven’t sat down for our Thanksgiving feasts yet, wreaths and garland adorn the light posts on Main Street. A hot chocolate and a stroll through the streets of Port Jefferson will instantly put you in the Christmas spirit. I look forward to seeing you around this holiday season!
