Portobello Road Shop and Wrap event

Miranda Pollitt

Finals preparation can be very stressful. While trying to balance studying, taking exams and turning in projects, things can get pretty hectic. But with the holiday season quickly approaching, many students need to get their shopping done before the tests arrive.

Portobello Road in Ames will be holding an event to help busy students prepare for the holidays. The boutique on Welch Avenue will host a Shop and Wrap event from 4-7 p.m. Dec. 1.

Seniors Alexa Foster and Hannah Lilienthal, and junior Dana Melcher organized this event for the PR 424 class. The event will help students get their holiday shopping done without having to wander far from campus.

At the event, shoppers can take advantage of buy-one-get-one deals, refreshments and a free wrapping paper station. Refreshments include cookies and hot chocolate.

At the free wrapping paper station, you can get multiple gifts and wrap them in one place. For busy students on the go, this is an opportunity to get your holiday shopping done.

Portobello Road has a wide range of products. From mugs and candles to jewelry and clothing, there is something for everyone.
