On December 23 and Christmas Eve, prepare to see some Santas around town that look nothing like the plump, rosy-cheeked fella of your childhood. Men's e-commerce brands Tucker Blair and Ministry of Supply are hitting the streets of Boston to deliver last-minute gifts, so should you still need to gather gifts for the men in your life, be sure to take note.
Tucker Blair has drawn fans from all corners of the prep world for cheeky needlepoint accessories, but with its Boston headquarters, the brand is testing a direct delivery promotion this holiday season. Purchase any gift—belts, flasks, cardholders—between now and noon on Monday for delivery that evening within the city of Boston, presented by a Tucker Courier dressed as Santa with an Uber car as a sleigh.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Supply team will also hand-deliver last minute purchases in Santa caps on Tuesday, Christmas Eve. Place one of the first 100 orders between 12am and 3pm on December 24 for delivery to Cambridge, Boston, Brookline, Somerville, Newton, Waltham, and Watertown.
