Celebrating the Holidays at Northstar: Here are 6 Great Gift Ideas

October 27, 2021
Posted In: Life at Northstar

The holidays are magical at the master-planned community of Northstar, located just north of Fort Worth. Whether it is Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or New Year’s Day these holidays present great opportunities to decorate homes, invite new Northstar neighbors (who will likely become lifetime friends) over for parties and celebrate the season. 

Holidays are also a great excuse to find the perfect gift for friends and family members. While it’s always a challenge to find and purchase a memorable gift – one that the recipient will love and use – this year, it might be a little more difficult. This is due to the supply chain backups, caused in part by the pandemic.

Fear not! 

Everybody loves gadgets, and the annual My Smart Gadget collection has been announced. These wildly creative products are SO cool that everybody will be nice, and nobody will be naughty – at least until New Year’s Eve!
