Present Tense
Your Last-Minute Gift Guide. It’s Here.

Naughty. Nice. You’ve never put that much thought into it, really. Everyone deserves a little something. And speaking of... you should probably find those little somethings before it’s too late. So below: five local gifts you can get today. Or tomorrow. Or not and say you did.

UD - They’ll Be Needing This Bloody Mary Kit

FOR THE LATE RISER

They’ll Be Needing This Bloody Mary Kit

Midmornings were made for one thing: pancakes. And maybe Froot Loops. Definitely vodka. And for the latter, there’s this Bloody Mary kit from H&F Bottle Shop. It’s loaded with things like homemade Bloody mix, pickled okra, tall glasses, a bar towel and a Moleskine notebook. Presumably for... taking Bloody Mary notes.

$125, available at H&F Bottle Shop, 2357 Peachtree Rd, 404-841-4070
UD - These Jams Are Made with Wine

FOR THE PB&J SOMMELIER

These Jams Are Made with Wine

Never: show up to a holiday dinner party without bearing gifts. Always: show up to a holiday dinner party with a bunch of alcoholic jams. Jams like Tipsy Onion and Garlic made with white wine. And Cabernet Sauvignon made with... cabernet sauvignon. They’re great with gouda. So maybe bring gouda, too.

$8.50, available at Peridot Distinctive Gifts Buckhead, 514 E Paces Ferry Rd NE, 404-261-7028
UD - A Wool Poncho She Can Sleep Under

FOR THE SLEEPY SOCIALITE

A Wool Poncho She Can Sleep Under

Guess who’s getting this new Scottish cloak from Ann Mashburn? Some girl. That’s who’s getting this new Scottish cloak from Ann Mashburn. But she’s a pretty lucky girl. Because it’s wool (good for insulation), it’s long (good for doubling as a blanket/dress/cape) and it’s red plaid. Good for not being polka dot.
411:
$275, available at Ann Mashburn, 1198 Howell Mill Rd, 404-350-7132
UD - Some Circular, Opinionated Flasks

FOR THE SARCASTIC IMBIBER

Some Circular, Opinionated Flasks

So there’s this testosterone-y shopping event at Huff Harrington this weekend. Gratis beer and champagne will be there. And sausages. And things like this circular, stainless-steel flask. Get the one that says “To My Health” for a colleague. Or a neighbor. Or your mom. Or your dentist. It’s for their health.
411:
$25-$30, available Dec 23, 1-5pm, at Huff Harrington Home, 102 W Paces Ferry Rd, 404-467-0311
UD - A Chess-Patterned Butcher Board

FOR THE EASILY DISTRACTED BUTCHER

A Chess-Patterned Butcher Board

You know that one friend who’s really overambitious in the kitchen... well, you’re getting them this. It’s a solid wood butcher block made by a Georgia carpenter that looks like a big cherry-and-maple wood chessboard. You know, for slicing things and playing chess at the same time. That old scenario.

$85-$90, available at Doc’s Woodturning, 706-624-3252
