All We Want for Christmas is Fort Wayne

It’s that season again, stockings hung, chestnuts roasting, twinkling lights, and sugar cookies. You know, all the things that make the holidays warm and cheery. Last year we asked some of our volunteers what they wanted for the holidays and we posted it in our first All We Want for Christmas is Fort Wayne. This year we are continuing the tradition with a 2014 edition of a #ShopLocal holiday gift list. Read on to see what local things our volunteers hope to see under their trees. Lynn Altevogt DeBrand Fine Chocolates – DeBrand is Fort Wayne’s favorite chocolate, and I’m not sure there is much they offer that I haven’t tried. I’ve been really craving the Gourmet S’mores Kit, the perfect snack for cold winter nights. Summit City Bikes and Fitness – Have you guys heard of “fat” bikes?

Cardinal Tattoo – I am in need of some more ink and I am in love with the work done by the boys at Cardinal Tattoo. They did all our 3RRC tattoos last spring and I’ve been itching to go back ever since. A $50 gift card should be a good start. You know what, let’s just make it an even $100.

But you know what would be even more handy? — a gift card to Affine. Wendy Englehart Smells from Old Fort Soap Company – Any scent will do. Specifically, Coconut and Shea, Carrot and Calendula or Lavendar and Lemongrass. Oh, and a bath bomb so I can relax in some bubbly effervescence. Mahnin – Green Curry please, large size with seafood. Make sure they go heavy on the Thai Basil and Asian eggplant. Ask them to keep it mild, because even the heat from that will knock my socks off. Bottle of Barreja from Two-EE’s – This is a self-explanatory, can’t-go-wrong gift. Tickets to C2G’s Janis Joplin Tribute on Saturday, January 17th – If you aren’t familiar with Come To Go, or the C2G Music Hall, this is an awesome venue for both worship and outstanding acoustics. I’m pretty sure musicians just sound better here. Emily Farmer 1-Month Membership to Studio Seva – I was recently notified that they have a yoga class with a twist…SevAerial Yoga! That’s right.
