With the holidays right around the corner, it's time to get into the "Holiday Shuffle," i.e., a frantic scramble to make sure everyone in your family-and-friend circle gets a gift before Christmas Day.
And we all know what happens next. You go on the internet to search for gift ideas, and you get overwhelmed with options. Before you know it, it's 2 a.m. and you're watching cat videos on Youtube! (We've all been there).
Rather than sitting at the computer and turning online holiday shopping into a search and research project as lengthy and involved as a doctoral thesis, why not take a quick look at three, fun gift ideas we put together here at Anderson Design Group. These gifts are perfect for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.
