From a smooth Chianti to limited edition cigars, fun, festive, and uniquely Wilton gifts are still available. Yes, the “last minute” is quickly ticking away until the annual bacchanalia known as Christmas arrives.
Some may call you a procrastinator. But really, you’re just holding out to make sure you don’t miss something really cool. Call it Holiday FOMO. And Wilton Manors is the place to check off all remaining names on your holiday list.
To The Moon easily has the best display window on The Drive. Constantly changing merchandise means it’s worth poking your head in anytime you walk by. Hundreds of ornaments hang from the ceiling, naughty and nice greeting cards are in the back, with hundreds of other stocking stuffers in between.
Antonio Dumas has owned the store for 20 years and says this has been a good season.
“Holiday season is going amazing. This year might be a little busier than last year. So far, so great.”
One of his most popular sellers is vintage candy bars and European confections that aren’t easily available in the United States.
Speaking of food, Delizioso is a new spot on Dixie Hwy. bringing your favorite flavors from Italy to South Florida. This place is as Italian as the Leaning Tower of Pisa or the canals of Venice.
Owner Stefania Curino curates made-to-order gift baskets, featuring all kinds of Italian wines, pastas, and more. Don’t know exactly what you want? That’s okay, Curino knows her stuff. Tell her the vibe or tastes of the recipient, and she’ll get you on your way.
Another business celebrating its first holiday season in the community is Tap That Ash. The wine and cigar bar has created its own line of cigars. With the sleek packaging and artwork, their expertly crafted cigars will delight any stogie connoisseur.
Across the street on Wilton Drive is World of Smoke & Vape. Of course they have all the usual accouterments you’d expect in a vape store. But they are also replete with mugs with quirky sayings, odorizers, and Bongzilla, a pole-mounted beer bong with a funnel and tubes so there’s no waiting.
