Nothing says "I really put some thought into your gift and made something special just for you" like a one-of-a-kind hand-crafted thingamajig. But let's face it--good intentions aside, last-minute scrambles to the mall in search of that one last mass-produced gift are not unheard of. Not this year, though. This year is going to be different and Flying M Coffeegarage has you covered.
Put on your walkin' shoes, grab a friend and make your way to Nampa. What started out as some local crafters coming together to sell their stuff five years ago has evolved into the valley's hippest hot spot for happenin' gifts, and if you have never been, there's no time like the present. The White Pine, The Shed, Brass Razoo and Puffy Mondaes all wanted in on the action, and the number of crafters selling their stuff has almost doubled since the market's inception. With items like candles, jewelry, toys, knitted hats and scarves, lotions and metalwork, it's almost a given that you'll find something for just about everyone on your list. Heck, you can even get your handmade holiday cards and specialty coffee while you're there, and many of the crafters have their own Etsy stores so you can prolong the experience.
So even if you didn't personally make that one-of-a-kind gift, you spent a fab day shopping for just the right thing, stress-free and relaxed. And that is a gift in and of itself.
