Making a List and Checking It Twice...

I don't know about you, but as much as I look forward to the holiday season each year, there is always stress surrounding what to buy for some folks on my gift list. Since we are only 33 days away from Christmas I thought I would offer some of my best, and most affordable ideas! Oprah has favorites, why can't I, and I admit that some of my favorites...came straight from her lists. All of these gifts are available for purchase now in our store, with the exception of the wine...sorry!

For the cooking enthusiast friend (under $30)
Earthworks Limone hand wash for the kitchen sink, recipe cards or a market list note pad, oven mit or kitchen towel.

For those who like to try new things (only $5)
A small, but nicely packaged, thoughtful gift: Tea Forte Small Tin containing two silken tea infusers. A terrific hostess gift, party favor, "thank you" gift or stocking stuffer. Our best selling flavor - Citrus Mint - cool, brilliant peppermint is complemented by sunny citrus zest.

For the stylish friend (Kate Spade! for only $25)
Box of 10 engraved correspondence "Snail Mail" motif cards with gold lined envelopes.

For the perfect hostess (around $30 depending on your wine selection)
A bottle of wine and a "What A Character" Initial Bottle Stopper.

For the business man ($12-$18)
A Moleskine notebook. Moleskine® is the legendary notebook used for the past two centuries by great artists and thinkers, including Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin.
For the environmentally concious writer ($12)
Package of 8 artfully designed note cards by Waste Note Paper. Waste Not Paper is dedicated to the idea that what is used everyday can be not only beautiful and creative, but friendly to our world.

For the preppy little one ($20-$25)
A personalized T-Shirt or onesie from The Paper Menu. Available in short and long sleeve, various sizes and designs. Outfit your baby in style!

For the die-hard alumnus ($49.95)
Personalized self-inking return address stamp. Many colleges to choose from. Brand new for our store. Makes the PERFECT alumni gift. (Ships directly to you in 10 business days.)

For the engaged couple trying to survive the holidays while planning the biggest day of their lives, perfect stocking stuffer! (only $6.95)
Bride & Groom IOUs. Each voucher takes the worry out of asking for big favors, from in-law management and honeymoon planning sessions to permission to splurge or a weekend that's free of wedding talk.

For those who just have it all ($4.50 to $18)
Paddywax candles, packaged ready for gifting. Includes free little box of matches. We guarantee that the person who already has it all doesn't have this candle fragrance...and it is truly our best seller - New Mown Hay, with scents of cut grass, thyme and verbena. It seriously smells fabulous for any home or office.
Happy Shopping :)
