Hopefully you’re reading this over the remnants of a lavish turkey (or tofurkey) dinner and surrounded by family and friends. Hopefully you have no intention of getting in line at midnight outside a big-box retailer and running like a bat out of hell toward that thing being offered at such a deep discount that you think you have to have it.

Hopefully, Weekly reader, you’re far more measured than that. You’re going to take your time, shop local and independent, and use our guide over the next five weeks to help inform some wise shopping choices. And, bonus! We’ll also tell you what great holiday events are happening each week so a season of shopping becomes much more than that.

This week, check out gift ideas for your beau, and gift ideas for your teen. Next week, get ready for something new and different. The one thing the lists have in common? They’re all carefully curated by your friends at the Weekly
