Wrap Anything @ Our Extreme Gift Wrap Event December 7, Benefiting the Childbirth Collective

On Saturday, December 7, our neighborhood of St. Anthony Park will bring out its Holiday finest! Shops and restaurants up and down Como and Raymond Avenues will be offering a wide variety of holiday cheer!

For our part, our professional gift wrappers (Millie and Dan, mostly) will wrap any present purchased anywhere for a $2 donation to the Childbirth Collective, a fabulous local support group for new and expecting women and families. Bring what you've got and see how quick we can wrap it! (After 14 years of offering free in-store gift wrapping, we're pretty darn quick!)

12/4 UPDATE: We'll be matching all gift wrapping donations up to $300! Now that's twice as sweet!

 So, whether you're gifting tools, chocolates, or books, get them wrapped all at once and help out a great cause! (Note: Really big stuff may cost more.) And, of course, there will be free hot cider!

But wait, there's more! 

December 7 in Saint Anthony Park

Visit our neighbors for reindeer-pulled sleigh rides and Santa photo-ops at Sunrise Banks, cookie decorating at Tim and Tom’s Speedy Market, a wine tasting at the Little Wine Shoppe, and an artisan market at Milton Square. Bungalow Pottery will host candle-dipping for children with Gibbs Museum and Micawber’s Books will donate a portion of the day’s sales to St. Anthony Park Elementary School. Muffuletta will be serving mulled wine on the deck, Complexions on Carter will have skincare specials and sell jewelry and stationery from local artists, and Lady Elegant’s Tea Room will offer discounts in the shop. If you spend $5 or more at Finnish Bistro you get a free chocolate chip cookie.

And if you need a festive cap to the day’s festivities, Santa will be on hand at 5:15 p.m. Saturday to light the tree in Milton Square. Visit the Park Bugle for the full schedule of the day's events.
