Christmas in Detroit conjures up all sorts of memories, from finding the perfect tree, to finding the right gift for that special someone. It’s also about giving back, and helping those in need.
Shot at the Gardner White store in Macomb, along with other select Metro Detroit locations, the Detroit Holiday Gift Guide is a half hour of everything that makes Metro Detroit special during the holidays.

Here’s an outline of the show.
Events & Festivities!
When we were putting this show together — the first thing we said we had to get to was the Christmas tree lighting down-town at Campus Martius. Nothing gets you more into the holiday spirit like this new tradition started just a few years ago. The Christmas tree won’t be up after New Years Day, but remember, you can hit the skating rink all winter long.
Staying downtown? Head to one of Detroit’s hotspots. Whether you want to take a roll of the dice — or relax in the lap of luxury this holiday season – Greektown casino is the place to be. Be sure to keep Greektown in mind if you are looking for a place to stay for a night on the town – or the perfect stay-cation.
O’ Christmas Tree!
It’s time to hit the great outdoors for a long-standing holiday tradition. Hit the tree farm and talk to the experts to find out what you need to know before you pick out your Christmas tree. The drive to Dexter is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. It’s about an hour from downtown Detroit.
It doesn’t matter what people say — jewelry is a perfect gift for the lady in your life. Get a look at a great place to shop for the perfect gift for that special someone.
Let There Be Light!
Be merry and bright as we hit the streets of Rochester to see what Christmas there is all about.
You can’t forget about the guys, and you know they’re always hard to buy for. Find a one stop shop that’s sure to fit the bill. Is your guy ready for that wicked winter weather? Maybe he needs some new work clothes. Well look no further than the last stop on our holiday tour.
The holidays are all about helping out those in need and for decades the marines have played a key role with their Toys For Tots program. Learn about the history of the program, how you can donate and how Gardner White has been involved.
It’s time for some holiday giving, and one local charity has been working for decades to help feed the hungry around Metro Detroit. Here’s how you can help Gleaners’ food bank. Sometimes the best gift you can give is your time.
We want to say thank you to our sponsors Gardner White Furniture, Garner’s Jewelry, Contractors Clothing and Greektown Casino & Hotel for sponsoring this special presentation and helping us get in the spirit of the holidays.
