Show you care with clothes that keep them cozy in the February chill. Shop Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods and Westbrook Outlets for plenty of stores that match their style. Foxwoods’ Panche is filled with fun accessories and fashion. Tidal River Clothing Co. has the brands you know and love for the ones you love for the kids to grandparents. J. Jill offers easy, relaxed, inspired style.
Perfect for the Practical
Hard to buy for? How about hardware? For Mr./Ms. Fix-it there is no better gift than a shiny new tool or yard supply from Tractor Supply Co. Maybe the fixtures from Frank Webb Home and the paint from Ring’s End for a planned renovation is just the right way to celebrate your life together. Pick up all you need at Surplus Unlimited or Walmart.
