Shopping: His and hers holiday guide event

A sweet necklace from Heather B. Moore offered at TownHome.

Imagine if every girl opened her holiday gift from her significant other, only to discover he's bought her exactly what she's wanted all along.

Wouldn't that be nice?

If this was applicable to countless couples across the Greater Philadelphia region, retailers would be dealing with fewer returns and thinner crowds the day after Christmas, not to mention there would be less disappointment for all parties.

This Wednesday, Nov. 28, TownHome Jewelry & Boutique, the arbiter of unique, stylish jewelry, is hosting its first of two special Holiday shopping events. From 5:30-8 p.m., ladies will have the opportunity to compile their respective wish lists while enjoying wine and light bites from Marc Vetri. The boutique offers brands like Heather B. Moore, Jennifer Meyer and Me&Ro, so it shouldn't be too difficult to compile a list of wants.

Then, on Tuesday, Dec. 11, the boutique will host a gifting guide event for guys, complete with whiskey and food from Whiskey Pig and Vetri. Owner Dana Bank will be on hand to help men choose great gifts for their ladies, so all parties can avoid the crushing disappointment of failure.

And if you're unattached, still stop by for a selection of cool gifts, free food, cocktails, and a one-time discount offered to all guests.

Event details: TownHome's "Make Your List, Check It Twice" event, Nov. 28 and Dec. 11, 5:30-8 p.m., 1616 Walnut Street
