12/23 Christmas Wish | Neck warmer

@BR Ednote:EDITOR’S NOTE: Every holiday season, The Bradenton Herald staff picks favorite gift selections from local businesses.

Gift: Hand-knitted head and neck warmer.

Description: Vera Tillett is an accomplished knitter, and among the products she sells in her family’s store are wonderfully-soft scarves and hats. They are part hat, part scarf and can be worn atop the head like a hat or around the neck like a scarf.

Cost: $18.50 each

Where purchased: The Citrus Place, 7200 U.S. 19 N., Terra Ceia (941) 722-6745

Why I like it: These lovely items keep your hair in place and your ears warm if you’re in the wind and you can move it down to keep your neck warm.
