The Nantucket Looms Effortless Holiday Gift Guide

The Nantucket Looms Effortless Holiday Gift Guide

The season of giving has officially begun, and we know you are busy like us trying to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. We also know the difficulty that comes with deciding what that is exactly. We asked our owner and gift giving guru, Bess Clarke, what are her gift suggestions for an effortless shopping experience. Read below to see her top picks.

The holidays mark my favorite time to work in the shop. For the past 49 years people have come to Nantucket Looms to find special gifts for friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and teachers. Which is why helping to find that “perfect gift” is one of my all-time favorite challenges. I like to find out a little about the person and determine what kind of budget you have to work with. There is no use in suggesting a $2500 painting when you only have $25.00. And just because you may have a limited budget, it doesn’t mean you have limited options. In fact, my mom, Liz, believes that if the wrapping looks like a million bucks you don't need to spend a fortune. Did I mention we offer free gift wrapping? So let me begin with my gift giving suggestions for the 2017 holiday season.
