Calling All Those in a Panic: Last Minute Gift Ideas from Connecticut Shops
(page 4 of 5)
For the hosts:
You're destined for a big holiday party and are determined to impress. Look no further than Stew Leonard's in Norwalk for the best gourmet gifts, from popcorn, fruit and baked goods to a large assortment of all the store's most popular munchies. Each gift basket is hand-packed and artfully presented.
What won't they create in ornament form these days!?! You can find most forms of holiday design and decoration at The Historical Christmas Barn in Wilton (which is now located in Lambert House, the town's oldest residence). Got an animal lover on your list? Check out the Joy to the World Pet Collection, representing dogs of many breeds and cats of all coat colors.
There's no more civilized gift than tea, and no lovelier place to find it than Pomfret's Celebrations Gallery, Gift Shoppes & Tea Room. Not only can you buy teas by Harney & Sons, Adagio and The Foreign Office (pictured), but you can also treat a friend or family member to a gift certificate for one of Celebrations Monthly Themed Afternoon Teas, such as February's "Steeped in Love."
