Good for both humans and animals, Critter Control has been using humane wildlife-removal and management techniques since 1982. When bats, birds, raccoons, skunks, ducks, or other creatures invade living spaces, they gently swoop them up and relocate them to their natural homesteads. The crew's experience also extends to pest control, which keeps homes and businesses free of sugar ants, spiders, wasps, box elders, earwigs, silverfish, beetles, and more.

Collectors stock up on train sets and Department 56 village-collection pieces, and gift givers load their sleighs with goods from Fontanini, a business that began sculpting nativity scenes more than 100 years ago in Italy.
