12 Ways To Make Your Christmas Perfect, Arizona-Style
Can you believe Christmas is already less than two weeks away? If you haven’t already completed your shopping for presents, be aware the clock is ticking! If you’re not quite sure what to give your true love for Christmas, don’t worry. We’re drawing inspiration from the song “12 Days of Christmas” to give you some ideas for Arizona-style gifts and experiences.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Okay, some of these things might be a little difficult to gift to your true love; some of them act more as experiences than presents you can wrap. Instead, we recommend checking out our humble shop for some actual Arizona gifts that are stylish and cozy. You might even find something for yourself!
