Merry Christmas to All

We were planning to do a last-minute shopping guide today, but then we realized, there's only one thing we'd suggest: If you still need gifts, steer clear of the big boxes (who needs that headache?) and shop locally. It's the gift that keeps on giving — to everyone on your list and your community.

Speaking of gifts, let's take a minute to be thankful for the ones we already have: health, happiness, family and the chance to live in one of the best places on Earth. You can't buy those at the mall, but they're more valuable than gold. Here at the Maven, we're also thankful that all of you have been so supportive over the last year. We are thrilled to have you as part of our online "family" and wish you all the best.

Finally, for all you real procrastinators — the ones who have put off all your shopping until today — we have only one place to recommend: L.L. Bean. It's another one of those things we take for granted 364 days of the year, but it's days like today when we're glad the place doesn't have locks on its doors.

Have a wonderful holiday, and we'll see you next week!
