Temperatures outside are dropping, the local mall parking lots are filling up and the deadline to get stuff to the post office to ship off to your-out-of-town relatives is fast approaching. (Dec. 14 for USPS Ground, Dec. 20 for First Class and Dec. 22 for Priority Express, in case you were wondering.) Much as we hate to say it, Christmas is closer than you think.
If you want to get through this holiday gift-giving season—whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or something else—Alibi is here to help. Our strategy is simple: stick to your part of town. Albuquerque is full of cool, interesting and—most importantly—local shops, stores, galleries, etc. that are filled with unique gift options. No need to race all over Burque wasting time and gas looking for that last-minute gift when you can stick to your own backyard. For this year’s Last Minute Gift Guide we’ve asked our Alibi editors to pick out some of the best shopping spots around town.
