SRQ editors hit the ground running to pull together a mixed bag of feel-good goodies to hygge out at home if you’ve become accustomed to a socially distanced lifestyle. If not, flip through to our picks for outdoorsy adventure gear to enjoy a quintessential Gulf Coast outing. Or, dive into some ticketed activities and local excursions we stumbled upon for more experiential gift ideas. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t feature a cellar’s-worth of celebratory bubbles to manifest a holly jolly good time upon the end of an historic year of pandemonium. This holiday season, you deserve more than ever to “treat yourself” and your loved ones. 2020, it’s been real, but it’s time to let loose, pop a little champagne and recoup on some missed merrymaking.
