Holiday Helpers

With all of the gift wrapping, holiday shopping and yule tide cheer, we’ve found there are a few things we tend to forget in our merriment each year. To prepare you for the happiest season of all, we’ve stocked our favorite items to have on hand at McIntyre’s Books! See our list of items not to miss below!

The season of giving means lots of beautifully wrapped gifts under the tree. Don’t lose track of those presents, pick up quirky and fun gift tags at the bookstore. And for the gifts you and yours receive, there’s plenty of thank you cards to choose from as well! 

Whether you’re repairing last year’s tacky sweater or someone’s favorite holiday socks, a sewing kit will help keep those stitches looking sharp. Pick one up at the bookstore on your next shopping run.

The winter chill has no respite for busy holiday hands. A favorite all year long, the Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Cream is a perfect holiday treat for yourself or someone on your list!

To keep the merriment all aglow, we’ve stocked plenty of the beautiful Rosy Rings candles, or the hand-poured artisan Paddywax candles. Another option for a last minute gift, which also make great complements to holiday decor in any home.

If you’re looking for Beltie t-shirts, sweatshirts and more, there’s lots in store to help you check off your holiday shopping list. If you’d like to see our full gift-guide, check out the blog.

Happy Holidays from McIntyre’s Books!
