Perhaps you are struggling to find a gift, so let us recommend you redirect your efforts to an experience instead. We are all cooped up and wanting to get out into the world to live big again, so consider picking up gift cards for a nice dinner out, a spa service, a wine tasting, a hotel or bed & breakfast stay, a history tour, or fun experience like axe throwing, an escape room, electric bike rental or a river cruise on a paddlewheel boat or private gondola or a pontoon rental for the day.
How about a cooking class at Cooks of Crocus Hill, DIY craft workshop at Darn Knit Anyway or Smith & Trade Merchantile or painting pottery at Kari’s Create & Paint Studio or for someone expecting a baby a luxury 3d ultra-sound experience at Peek a Baby.
What about local coffee shops or sweet treat stops for their next walk on the St. Croix River Loop Trail? Have someone on your list that loves golf? Stillwater has several courses, so make it a golf getaway!
Think big…what about a bucket list dream of a hot air balloon ride over the St. Croix River Valley?
For those who prefer to pick out something that fits their style, gift certificates to boutiques are a welcome gift, too!
Call, stop-in, or event order online for many – it’s an easy gift but very thoughtful as you can customize the idea to their taste!
Know someone sick of working at home, give them the gift of rental at beautiful office space on main street.
