Christmas and Hanukkah are almost here! Are you finished with your shopping?

Every year I tell myself I’ll get to things earlier because, let’s face it, December has a way of evaporating quickly. December 1 feels like it’s the beginning of the holiday season and then all of a sudden it seems too late to order gifts and everything you need.

No worries.

Local businesses have you covered. They can make your life so much easier. We’re not just talking about finding the perfect gift. It may seem like a slight inconvenience to make your purchases in-person after getting used to making them online, but it’s so wonderful to enjoy time in our beautifully decorated businesses.

Have guests coming? Get your home into terrific shape by calling a house cleaner to come in and do the things you don’t have time for.

If you find yourself overwhelmed with guests, no one said you have to cook every meal. We have some many delicious restaurants here. Take your group out or bring in food.

As far as entertainment is concerned…

What about Christmas Tree Lane? I don’t know about you but I love the lights. Nothing gets me more excited for the holidays than visiting that special neighborhood.

No matter what you need, you can find it here in Alameda.
