A List of Christmas Sweets and Treats for the Kids and Adults Alike

A List of Christmas Sweets and Treats for the Kids and Adults Alike

Read Time: 4 minutes

The best part, you can find homemade favorites all in one place and delivered right to your doorstep

 

 

Malls are honestly the worst place to be in when ‘Ber months kick in and more so in November. Literally everyone is trying to get their Christmas shopping and what have you done. I’ve been to the mall maybe twice in the past month and both instances, I had to crowd surf my way to a public toilet. So if you still need to do some shopping, especially for food (cause you know, potluck parties are always right around the corner) but prefer to stay in or away from the crowd, there’s always honestbee.

 

And no sis, they don’t just deliver groceries and restaurant-ordered food anymore; they recently added local homemade favorites, flowers and toys—from Hamley’s and Hobbes & Landes no less—to their list of services.

 

Here’s another handy guide to gift shopping. You’re welcome!
