This year, we can finally celebrate the season of merry-making as we used to when we didn’t have to turn in proof of vaccination along with an RSVP, or have to finagle sipping a cocktail while wearing a mask. The holidays just seem more joyous. Even the city itself seems to be brimming with holiday spirit. The jingle of Christmas music, from the recently upgraded sound system, drifts along the thoroughfares. There’s a new Hanukkah menorah statue and a 14-foot Christmas tree in Beverly Gardens Park, a light sculpture exhibit at Beverly Canon Gardens, and a light show projection at City Hall. And as you eye your stack of invitations to holiday parties or begin to plan a gathering you’re hosting, you may be looking to step up your cheer quotient this year as well. We’ve compiled this collection of the latest offerings at local shops to inspire you to sparkle up your wardrobe or warm your home. You might even find some gift ideas for loved ones on your list.
