Christmas: The time of the year for Kris Kringle, monito-monita, Secret Santa, and strategic office gift-giving (you'll definitely want to give your boss more than a mug). What do you give away? Nothing too expensive because your bonus can only go so far. Nothing clichéd (because really, no one deserves a 27th mug). We empathize with the struggles of the season, which is why we dove back to our favorite store and dug out some rad gift ideas. 

True Value, it's a treasure trove that will never let you down.
