The holidays really are the most wonderful time of the year. Finals are over, you’re finally registering the feeling in your tired, frozen toes, and it’s high time to fill your heart with loved ones and your stomach with hot chocolate.
Whether you’re going home for the holidays or staying in Berkeley, we’ve compiled some gift ideas to help you give a special thanks to the important people in your life — and even to yourself!
But the holidays are more than just about presents. Inside this issue, you’ll find a history of gift-giving practices, a column about discovering a love for gifting and a holiday mixtape to inform and enliven you this season. We’ve also included a simple holiday recipe and a photo essay of the best places to find gifts in the Bay Area before you ring in the new year.
Best of luck and happiest of holidays from the Daily Cal!
