Holiday / Gone are the days of Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth (well, maybe not Beth), where all little women are expected to stay at home to watch the kids, clean the house and set the dinner table for their husbands who bring home the bacon.

To celebrate the modern-day working moms on the island, Baby Awearness is hosting Handmade Holiday Market, featuring gifts locally made and handcrafted by over 20 home-based businesses and “mama-preneurs.” The goods are all one-of-a-kind, so you can get your shopping done without becoming overly saturated with typical Christmas gifts (no more dancing Santa dolls, please). The event also has food (Mama Nita scones, anyone?) and entertainment by musician Uncle Wayne and paper crafter Randi Kamauna. You can even take a yoga break with Omolulu to stretch out the shopping kinks. Your keiki will love the pictures with Santa, prizes and an evening parade, so don’t hesitate to bring the whole family.

Manoa Marketplace, 2752 Woodlawn Avenue, Sat., 12/10, 11am-4pm, free, [], 988-0010
