    Bit to Do

    Buying gifts is hard, especially when you have a lot of people to buy for. We want to help you out. Here's what we wish we were getting this year:

    Bruce Springsteen tickets
    The boss is coming to the YUM! Center on February 21. Get your tickets here! 

    Ugly Holiday sweaters from Regalo
    These hilariously loud homemade sweaters are unlike any you've ever seen before and are the perfect thing for everyone on your holiday shopping list.

    A bottle of anything from 502 Winery
    The perfect gift for the host of that upcoming dinner party!

    Gift cards we actually want
    Such as those to each of the following places, Starbucks, Heine Bros., Please and Thank You… (notice a trend and/or what most of our paychecks are spent on?)

    Another one of our favorites: Mussel and Burger Bar. The OLE Restaurant Group (owners of M&BB) have a pretty amazing special going on right now for those who purchase them. When purchasing a gift card during this holiday season, you'll get an additional 20 percent, so if you buy one for $50, you really get a $60 gift card. And yes, you can use it at ANY OLE Restaurants: M&BB, Taco Luchador, Artesano, Guaca Mole AND Mercato Italiano.

    Anything from KY For KY
    Kentucky pride is on the rise and many of us have admired this Lexington-based company’s clever tees and trucker hats. Now is the time to gift that Y’all sweatshirt we all obviously need. 

    Beard products by A.J. Murrays
    This local company has a line of natural shaving products for men (and women). Check out our recent piece!

    Free Parking
    “I would like a free parking card that would allow me to park wherever, whenever. Oh, and I’m the only one in city who has one.”
    Realistically, you could load a Smartcard for your friend who’s always having to park downtown. It’s basically giving the gift of convenience.

    Twin Limb's new EP, "Anything is Possible and Nothing Makes Sense"
    Because it's perfect wintertime cruising music and everyone, even your cousins who live in Colorado will like this music. You can also find a ton of other albums by Louisville artists at your local record shops!

    Annie St. Clair shirts
    What says "I love you" more than a $70 tee shirt? Nothing. Nothing says it more. Look out for our review, coming soon!

    The array of cute Christmas candy from Cellar Door chocolates
    There are little marshmallow snowmen, wreath pops, even tiny sprinkle-encrusted Christmas hedgehogs.

    A nice bottle of mid-shelf bourbon
    Or one of these great bourbon-themed gifts.

    Holiday-themed bath bombs from LUSH cosmetics in Oxmoor Mall
    If you have to shop at the mall, LUSH is a pretty good company to support.

    Anything from Sink or Swim art gallery on Baxter Avenue (right next to America. The Diner.)
    The cthulu face-warmers, skeleton hand necklaces, necklaces depicting delicate bits of female anatomy, Alice in Wonderland themed jewelry… they're definitely keeping Louisville weird.

    Pro Tip: Head to Butchertown Market
    Check out Work the Metal, in Butchertown Market, because their Christmas displays are on point, and because their Christmas displays are totally on point.
    Moss Hill has an array of bath products available, and Bourbon Barrel Foods will provide you with some tasty additions to any kitchen.
