Lets face it, people: Buying gifts based on Christmas wish lists is like doing your friends and familys shopping for them. This year, give a gift that proves you actually know someone, instead of the gift that proves you can read mass e-mails you were BCd on. Spacetakers Winter Holiday Art Market is a good place to start. Local artisans sell their wares everything from jewelry to paintings to clothing just in time for the holiday season. Sure, mom would appreciate that perfume and lotion gift set from the mall, but what about a basket of handmade soaps or a one-of-a-kind necklace with matching earrings? Not only will you likely be the envy of all the other gift-givers, but youll also do it without having to battle the holiday shopping nightmare at the mall. WHAM kicks off today with a pre--shopping party including DJs, food and beverages from 6 to 10 p.m. The market continues noon to 8:30 p.m. tomorrow and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Winter Street Studios, 2101 Winter Street. For information, call 713-862-0082 or visit www.winter-holiday-artmarket.com. Free.
