Gables Style: Holiday Gift Guide
By Maria Tettamanti of The Wordy Girl
It’s time for some post-turkey shopping, folks. And I’m talking the kind of shopping that will knock everybody off your got-to-buy-a-gift list. A jaunt to Downtown Coral Gables is a must once the holidays roll around — and yes, I’m looking at you.
For the father who loves reading the paper, the latest New York Times bestsellers and playing a heated game of Angry Birds, the Nook is it. Prying him away from the Nook may prove impossible, but at least you didn’t buy pops another boring tie or pair of pajamas this year. Available at Barnes and Noble.
Your mama…she’s extraordinary. So gift her with something unforgettable! A Pandora bracelet with commemorative beads (Friendship! Love! Weddings! Babies!) is a unique way to cherish life’s memories. Available at Montica Jewelry.
