p>We’re really getting into the holiday spirit here at TipnTag! And, with the recent tree lighting and opening of the ice rink on Frog Pond, Boston is decked out for the holidays.

One of our favorite parts of the holidays are all of the fun parties we get to go to, including maybe the best theme party of all, the Ugly Sweater parties! If you have one coming up and need a tacky holiday sweater in Boston, check out your local Goodwill store. Be ready to hunt for the perfect tacky sweater, but you can get one really cheap at Goodwill. Some other great and popular options include The Garment District, Urban Outfitters (if you don’t mind spending more money) and Buffalo Exchange! If you have an Ugly Sweater party planned soon, Boston’s got plenty of options to find the best holiday sweaters.

So, after you host the year’s most awesome Ugly Sweater Party, you’ll need some Christmas cards to thank your guest and wish them a happy holiday. Our Tipsters love Urban Outfitters and Barnes and Noble for their holiday cards. Urban is great for those funky, unique cards that will make your friends chuckle. B&N carries more classic holiday cards, including the UNICEF pack, so some of your purchase goes to a great cause!

And to top it all of, get your perfect holiday dessert at Cupcakory, Boston’s bakery in a truck! Cupcakory features a salted caramel cupcake that is to die for. Your holiday guests will flip for these cupcakes, so head to their website and place an order!

So now that you know some of our favorite holiday activities, tell us yours! What’s your favorite holiday tradition? Leave a comment here, on Facebook, Tweet us, or ask a question!
