Skip the junk stocking stuffers and do this instead.
If strolling Blue Moose Gallery gives you a shot of a little creative inspiration, you’re in luck—it offers classes for the aspiring maker crowd. So instead of making a frenzied Target run, sign up to watercolor your own holiday cards, make lip balms and lotions, dye a silk scarf or cut and fuse glass to make earrings and pendants. Class fees run between $30 and $50 and include supplies. bluemooseartgallery.com
