2018 Holiday Gift Guide

It's our holiday gift guide on FYI Philly. We've got a list, we've checked it twice and it includes gifts for her, ideas for him and presents with a purpose. Plus, we visit three local markets packed with handmade items and a 6-pack of pieces crafted by some of Philadelphia's top artists. We'll preview the 50th annual performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker and hear from the Grinch himself before his debut at the Merriam Theater.

FYI Philly airs Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday night after Action News and Sports Sunday.
