You’ve made it through the first round of gift buying, knocking off the easy folks—the ones you know well enough that you can zero in on the things they want or need most. But don’t breathe a sigh of relief yet, because now it’s time for Level 2. These are the people who are a touch more removed from your day-to-day life. The Uncle Jacks and Aunt Marthas you see exactly twice a year, the in-laws whom you’re still trying to figure out, the co-workers whom you’ve got to get a gift for because you know they’re going to give you something.
It’s time to scramble, and you’re maybe flying a little blind here, but that’s no excuse to shirk your responsibilities. You’ve got to get these guys something and it ought to be something good. Fortunately, the Alibi’s in your corner with a gift guide to some of the best items you can find from local Albuquerque businesses. Flip through the next few pages and you’re sure to come away with some perfect gift ideas for the people toward the bottom of your list.
