It’s down to the wire. There are only 7 days until Christmas. How’s that list coming? Still stuck on that brother-in-law who only seems to barbecue and watch Dodger games? Parents who are at the age where there’s no more room on any shelf for another knickknack and they constantly say, “Oh, honey, I’m just fine; you don’t need to get me a thing.” And they are fine, but you still have them on your list, and you’re determined not to show up Christmas day with something ho-hum.

Well, once again, maybe Old Pasadena can help. Throughout the holidays many businesses are offering discounts, like the adorable, funky, and fun Lula Mae or the tasty Bird Pick with blossoming teas, and where you can mix and match teas, and a slew of creative pots in which to brew them.

Get 20% off all Broadway books at Old Town Music (or an adorable bass guitar ornament for $6.95) or 10% off art books and artist products at Flower Pepper Gallery & Bookstore.

The Sewing Studio is offering %20 off their collection of clutch bags and designer throw pillows, and they are also offering several “Quick 3-Hour Workshops” in case you’d like to make your own gifts.

162207On the yummy side of things, Slater’s 50/50 and Tortas Mexico are offering free desserts, and if your relief from the stress needs another avenue, Equator is hosting $1 martinis. For a more healthy alternative, Asylum Gym is giving complimentary small group training sessions and Lineage Performing Arts Center is offering half off dance classes throughout the holiday season.
