#5: Put a pom pom on it! We have locally hand-made pom poms that match any yarn or finished project; if you need a quick gift for a knitter or crocheter in your life, you can’t go wrong with a nice worsted or bulky skein with a matching pom pom! Prices range from $11.95-15.95/each.
#4: All of your holiday/birthday/anniversary shopping in a box!
