Very Merry Holiday Gift Giving

Every holiday shopping list has one… that impossible-to-buy-for friend or family member.  But there’s really no need to despair - just think outside of the box.  Spending a few minutes thinking about the person’s interests will help you come up with a very merry and clever gift.

Embellish wine bottles with pretty ribbons and tie on wine-related accessories.


For the arts and crafts lover, give tickets to a local museum exhibit, art supplies, or craft idea books and magazines.

For the wine enthusiast, slip a bottle into a wine bag and embellish with wine-related baubles like pretty stoppers, wine charms, cocktail napkins or a fancy corkscrew.  

For the sports fan, choose game-day memorabilia, clothing and accessories in favorite team colors, or tickets to an upcoming sporting event.

For the out-of-town relative, create a gift basket filled with local specialties, make a scrapbook of vintage family photos, or gather beloved family recipes and present them in a festive container or tin. 
Fill a vintage basket with locally-made soaps, candles or chocolates for a unique presentation.

And who says gift cards aren’t personal?  They can be extremely if you keep the recipient in mind – a round of golf, a pedicure at a favorite spa, or dinner at a special restaurant.

Remember, whatever you decide to give your loved one, it’s the thought that counts. 
Have a great week!
