Give the Gift of Time This Holiday Season

Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be quite a challenge. Finding the perfect gift during a pandemic presents even more of an obstacle. This year, instead of running from shop to shop, stay safe at your The Isle apartment and instead brainstorm some ways to give the gift of time to your loved ones. While many of the events gift-givers usually think of—theater, sports games, movies—aren’t an option this year, there are other, smaller-scale excursions that are still in play.

If you’re looking to pick up some new skills while enjoying time out with a loved one this holiday season, check out Philadelphia Woodworks. Located in the heart of Manayunk, just one mile from your The Isle apartment, the venue is the city’s premiere woodworking club. It offers memberships for those who want to really roll up their sleeves and perfect the art of woodworking, as well as one-on-one instruction for specific projects and special events like date night outings—so no matter how you want to spend some time with a loved one this holiday, Philadelphia Woodworks can help you do it.

No experience is necessary for the venue’s public classes, but you’ll pick up lots of experience on your visit! Classes include everything from an introduction to woodworking hand tools, the basics of bowl turning, women-only events and workshops where you can create everything from pepper mills to tables to cutting boards. If you or someone on your list has had a woodworking project on your to-do list, this holiday may be the time to get it done, as you can schedule personal classes where woodworking experts will guide you through all the steps to put the finishing touches on your project.

Getting out and about to celebrate the holidays and your loved ones will be a little harder this year, but with some creativity and by taking advantage of all that Manayunk has to offer, this can still be an exciting and memorable holiday season.
