Hours: Mon.-Sat. 8:45 a.m.-7 p.m., Sun. 9:15 a.m.-6 p.m.

Though Keller's is more traditionally known for its awesome butchers, it's not a bad place to find New Mexico-centric gifts, either. Send out-of-towners some Cibolo Junction green chile stew or posole mix. There's also Santa Fe Season's red chile-cranberry sauce or green chile jam. Throw in a jar of whole chestnuts, attractive gourmet pastas and ready-made gift baskets of Keller's meat marinades. Beyond food, this grocer carries dreidels, holiday cards, plush stuffed animals, books on herbal remedies, aprons, candles, cocktail sets and a “Turkey 101” cooking kit.

2801R Eubank NE (in the Eastdale Shopping Center) • 292-0020
Hours: Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m.

It's hard to take in the hundreds upon hundreds of collectible figurines, delicately painted and neatly arranged in almost every square inch of Lorrie's. Christmas dominates in the jungle of ornaments, Christmas villages, religious figurines and manger scenes. But a cast of characters from Disney, Warner Bros. and The Wizard of Oz make appearances on the shelves. Prices vary, and this is a great place to shop for people who like to display pretty things in their home.
