All We Want For Christmas is Fort Wayne

All We Want For Christmas is Fort Wayne

The holidays are upon us and if you are anything like me, you are probably scrambling to get that perfect gift for a special someone. Here at Living Fort Wayne, we love to shop local and promote small businesses right here in the heart of downtown. To continue on with this tradition, we asked our staff what they wanted the most for Christmas. So sit back, relax, read our 2015 edition of All We Want For Christmas is Fort Wayne, and hope you’re not on Santa’s “Naughty” list.   Leslie Snare Well, I’m hoping Santa (or someone equally as cool) gets me a Brewerker membership from Summit City Brewerks. I’d definitely be better equipped to deal with the holiday shopping crowds! Plus, membership includes a t-shirt so that’s an extra special bonus! This membership also includes a SCB logo beer glass, birthday fill, membership card & sticker, and even special invitation-only events. Becca Bell I want a Patagonia pullover from Fort Wayne Outfitters and a year’s supply of weekly bottles from Juice Jar. I’d love for Santa to add to my collection of Susan and Steven Shaikh’s gemstone rings, which are sold at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art Paradigm Gallery. Also, mugs from Laura Brandenburg’s Stonewares. Tim Zink I know this is an old standby favorite in Fort Wayne. Since I thoroughly enjoy cookies, I wouldn’t mind having a box of cookies from the Cookie Cottage to replace every meal for a couple days (or to share…I guess). Jasmine Bejar I’ll add anything from Hedgehog Press. I love the unique and Fort Wayne-centric prints and art! I’m specifically itching for some of her wood cut coasters. Some Hedgehog Press products are also sold at Valontine Vintage inside the City Exchange Shops. Jade Kelsey If Santa could bring me a shiny new bike from Human Motor Works, I promise to be good all year! Human Motor Works also sells great running gear, bike accessories, and everything you’ll need for your next triathlon! Lynn Altevogt I just want absolutely everything from Fancy & Staple! But since I don’t expect anyone to spend quite that much money on me, a gift card would do just fine. Honestly, browsing around the shop is half the fun. I usually have to make two or three rounds to look at everything. Here are a few things on my wish list from there:     Travis Bartlett  I would love a bottle of beard oil from Valontine Vintage and some gourmet popcorn from Poptique, both located inside The City Exchange Shops. Some goodies from the Vanilla Bean to satisfy my relentless sweet tooth and I would also...
