Some of the best gifts are handmade... and if you find yourself not-so-artistically inclined, you might want to leave the DIY to a local artist. Thankfully, there are four great stops this weekend where you can gaze upon their wares and cross a few names off your list.

  • Holiday Art Sale at KIA - Kalamazoo Institute of Art, Friday, December 1 (4pm-8pm) through Saturday, December 2 (9am-3pm). Ceramics, jewelry,  glass, hand-woven scarves, paintings, photographs, metal sculpture - it's all there.

  • Holiday Gifts and Greens Sale - Kalamazoo County Expo Center, - Friday, December 1 (9am-6pm) through Saturday, December 2 (9am to 1pm). Trees, garland, wreaths, poinsettias - all the holiday flora you could ask for is in this one-stop-shop. Admission is free... and I bet its going to smell amazing.
  • Bazaar and Cookie WalkSunnyside United Methodist Church, Saturday, December 2 (9:30am-1pm), Free! Not everyone can be Betty Crocker, so when it comes time to make the treats we all love around the holidays, leave it up to the experts. Give as a gift, or keep for yourself.
