|Panic is the suspension of reason. It often happens in relation to holiday gift giving. The gift’s intention gets lost in the frenzy of the season.
We vowed to do it differently this year by tying the gift to some meaningful thought. What we’re buying now:
Hang a Wreath
Ancient Greeks and Romans used them as symbols of victory and eternity. Today, they’re an ubiquitous symbol of seasonal events.
The Wreath Lady creates modern masterpieces worthy of display, and gives each one a special significance.
Rock a Friendship
|Marilyn Monroe sang “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” like she meant it, but in the end the diamonds didn’t do her much good. Perhaps a Friendship Stonewould have been a better rock to lean on. At least it would have had some real meaning behind it.The Friendship Stone offers stones for sharing, wearing, and commemorating love and friendship. The Power of Two Friendship Stone Gift Pack helps generate support for Big Brothers Big Sisters, with a 20% donation on all sales.|
Take a Note
Customizing a gift means two things: you’ve thought about it in advance, and it can never be re-gifted. The former is an important sentiment in avoiding the latter.
Karen Cole imparts her graphics with a personality too precious to re-gift anyway. These note cards are worth the time and the stamp it takes to send them out into the world. Karen Cole Papers donates 10% of all proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Basic balsamic is so Cooking 101. For the seasoned cook, go a step beyond. Honey Ridge Farms Balsamic Honey Vinegar is distilled from pure honey. It’s sulfite-free, with a delicate sweet tart taste. Try the Lemongrass Coriander or the Fire Roasted Chili blends.
