14 Fredericksburg Parent and Family • December 2017 & January 2018 Ask the Expert a sk t h e e x p e rt Q: What are this year's hottest Christmas gifts? Anything personalized! The trend of more per- sonalized gifts is definitely here. Things Remembered is an excellent store for these special items. They have so many different kinds of gifts that can be engraved. Think: watches, picture frames and even purses. Personalization just makes your gift a little extra special. Q: Can you give us a few ideas for unisex gifts? I know many of us have Secret Santa par- ties this year! A lot of people don't know this, but HomeGoods has a gourmet food section. One year for my dad's birthday, we made him a "Taste of Italy" gift set. We bought him pasta, sauce, capers, an apron, etc. You can really go crazy at HomeGoods! Plus, their prices are amazing! If you're a Costco member, they have a huge wine section. Sometimes they even have wine gift sets. Are you ready for the holiday season? spotsylvania Towne Centre is! With festive concerts, an iceless skating rink and Santa Claus himself in residence, they have everything you need to get into the holiday spirit and get a few gifts marked off your list. Mandy Smith, marketing director for the Spotsylvania Towne Centre, gave us the lowdown on upcoming events, gift ideas and more! Q: What holiday activities does Spotsylvania Towne Centre have in store this year? We have some favorite holiday traditions like the Concert in Lights and the Iceless Ice Rink! During the month of December, we will have several festive concerts, including "Tuba Christmas" and Spotswood Baptist Church's choir and orchestra. On December 16, JCPenney Salon is hosting a Cute Cuts and Crafts event in the food court. You won't want to miss it!
