Christmas 2012 Gifts: What Are You Hoping to Get?

Yes, already—even before Black Friday. We know the Christmas shopping tends to get done earlier every year in Homewood, Flossmoor and everywhere else. So, here's your chance to tell your friends and family what Christmas gift you want in 2012.

Head to downtown Homewood or Flossmoor or any nearby stores and you'll see that it's already beginning to look a lot like Christmas 2012 in and around the village.

All kinds of gift ideas are out there.

For totally local, you can get to Bella Vita, Global Fusion, Poppies or Art 4 Soul to find a one-of-a-kind gift in the heart of H-F.

Maybe the big box stores are your thing?

Walmart has already announced it is offering layaway again this year, with the iPad and HP Ultrabook-based laptops on the list of eligible purchases.

The store has changed the policy on its open fee, which is kept if you ultimately can't pay for the item or refunded as a Walmart gift card when the item is fully paid off. That fee — or credit — has been increased from $5 to $15.

Walmart or off the wall, what kind of gift do you want? Tell us in the comments below — and then point your friends and family to Patch!
