As you kickoff the holiday season, we’ve got a Holiday Bucket List that’s sure to get you in the spirit!

Catch a holiday movie – or three!

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has a FULL month of holiday favorites. Let’s just say the Elf and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation never get old!

Stuff those stockings

The very best kind of stocking stuffer? The chocolate kind! Head to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and pick out custom assortments for everyone on your list.

Take a stroll through the Season of Lights

With more than 100,000 white LED lights throughout Turner Park, the Season of Lights is a must-see! …Even better if you’ve got a Culprit Café coffee or Cold Stone Creamery hot cocoa in hand. Be sure to snap a selfie in front of the giant tree in Farnam Court, too!

Catch up with friends over brunch

Instead of exchanging gifts, how about sharing a meal together? We all know the best meal of the day is brunch – and Modern Love just announced a brand-new Sunday brunch menu. You’re welcome.

Game on at Spielbound

Spend a cold, snowy day playing board games and sipping lattes at Spielbound Board Game Café. With more than 2,500 games available to play, they’ve got something for every group!

Leave the wrapping to the pros

If the thought of wrapping your holiday gifts has you stressing already, head to The Afternoon. In addition to an assortment of FUN, thoughtful gifts, their team will wrap your gifts for you. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Cheer for the Buffalo Bills at Ray’s

Did you know that Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings is the Bills bar of Omaha? Every game day, you’ll find Ray’s packed with football fans. Pair with an order of wings and your favorite adult beverage – and you’re set!

Order Tamales from Cantina Laredo

Heading to a holiday potluck? Reserve a dozen or two of Cantina Laredo’s Signature Tamales – and introduce your friends and family to a new holiday tradition!

Ship a Wohlner’s steak

Send your out-of-state family, friends or clients, a taste of Nebraska beef. Wohlner’s offers fabulous hand-trimmed steaks – always USDA Choice or better – and bundles with dry ice for a fresh, delicious steak.

Break out that ugly sweater

Special discounts await those in ugly sweaters on Saturday, December 7, as Midtown Crossing and the Blackstone District partner to produce the Farnam Ugly Sweater Crawl!

Give local

Hutch has a lovely assortment of gifts, handmade by local artisans. Whether it’s a watercolor print, candle or jewelry, you’re not only giving a great gift, you’re also supporting a local maker.

Raise a glass with your work pals

Once a Mutual tradition, Kamikaze Christmas is open to the public and set for Friday, December 20 in Liquid Sunshine Taproom. Music by Bozak & Morrissey, bar specials – and a holiday “cheers” await.

Complete date night with a holiday cocktail

Proof is Omaha’s home for craft cocktails – and they’ve just announced a brand-new menu of holiday cocktails – and you’re in for a treat. Hot Toddy. Buttercream Bananabread. Rye Rhonda Rye. Just saying.

Take time to pamper yourself

Don’t forget about yourself during this crazy busy season. For hair and spa services, Garbo’s Salon and Spa is the best in town – and for nail services, Gel Nails is your go-to! #treatyoself
