The holidays are always hectic at my house. Between work, school finishing up, and family getting into town, it can be hard to find time to get all the Christmas shopping done. I try to stay ahead of the game, but there are inevitably a few last minute gift needs that come up every year. Thankfully Cracker Barrel has some great last minute gift ideas to help save the day!
My husband and I love Cracker Barrel stores. We used to go in for lunch back when we lived in Arizona. Now that we’ve moved to Portland, I still find my favorite Cracker Barrel items online, and with their shop selection, I know I’ll always find great holiday gifts my friends & family will love. Cracker Barrels stores are located along many of the major freeways all over the country. If you’re road tripping for Christmas with the family, be sure to pull over to get some breakfast, lunch, or dinner and do some last minute shopping at the store!
Gifts For Him
My husband is surprisingly easy to shop for, thank goodness, but I still like to get him something he didn’t ask for each year to surprise him. These are a couple of my favorite gift ideas for him.
I don’t know a guy around (big or little) that doesn’t want a drone for Christmas. This Quadrone Remote Control Drone can do all the cool tricks he wants with its 360-degree flips and ability to fly up to 100 feet! He’ll be playing with this toy for hours, so be sure to buy plenty of batteries!
Even in the winter, we spend a fair amount of time grilling. There’s something so delicious about foods cooked over an open flame. The grill master in your life will love this Butcher Shoppe BBQ Gift Set, complete with a pork cuts ceramic serving tray, a bottle of hot sauce, a Southwest spice rub, a spice shaker, and tongs!
