Mother’s Day Thoughts

This year on May 12 we will be honoring our moms, grandmothers, nana’s, step moms, foster moms … well you get my drift.  Those all important ladies who mold us, inspire us, guide us, and yes, party with us to make us better people.  I have a suggestion to help you send them shopping. All the way to their favorite store for some fun time. Maybe they will let you go along.  And stop for lunch. You can treat.

I created this cute purse shaped greeting card that can be personalized with her name or whatever floats your boat. It can be for a birthday or other special occasion.  There’s room inside for your sentiment and a place to include a gift card or money. Check it out at my Etsy shop.  Purchase by May 5 to ensure time for shipping.

Spring is almost here!

Well that plucky groundhog told us SPRING is almost here.  Time for us to get planning for those upcoming weddings,  Mother’s day  and a graduation or two  – – may I suggest you pop over to my Etsy shop for some spring shopping.  I have something for everyone on your Spring list.  Just think of me as your Spring Cleaner of gift shopping.

 

Easy Peasy Holiday Shopping

Why stress about shopping on black friday? who needs to stay up all night, get trampled in those crowds to buy the perfect gift? I’ve got you covered right here.  Just make a list and leisurely pick up needed gift cards right in the grocery store when shopping for your turkey.  Then head over to my Etsy shop to get the perfect gift card holder for all. 

A super cute coffee cup works for most of your list as who doesn’t like coffee, tea or sweet treats? Perhaps a die hard mall shopper friend would enjoy a gift card to her favorite lingerie shop. And for him – a manly tape measure card to hold a hardware store gift card.  For the whole family? a night at the movies of course. Just pop in that movie ticket gift card in my savory popcorn style card.

I’ve got you covered my friends. Your welcome! Just click here to visit my shop for other great gift ideas.

Beat the HEAT

Wow it has been sooooo hot here (and I live at the beach) so what’s the best solution? Air conditioning of course.  So we usually head to our favorite cool movie theater.  It has food, beer, stadium seating in those awesome loungers, candy, flavored popcorn and did I mention draft beer?  LOL Anyhow, I was thinking it would be a great idea to give the gift of cool movie time to others.  Just pop in a movie theater ticket (you can buy them online or in any store; grocery, target, etc) in my cute popcorn box greeting card and you have the best birthday, anniversary, end of summer, back to school gift ever.  It’s the perfect gift for that hard to buy for relative. A great thank-you to your summer carpool friend who dragged your kids to the beach with hers. And the best gift for that dog – cat -house sitter while you were on vacation friend. Check it out in my Etsy shop. 

 

School’s Almost OUT!

Time for the summer plans to begin. But before you do, don’t forget to show your appreciation to your child’s teachers, aides, tutors, coaches and other mentors in their lives.  They all could use a coffee shop gift card (coffee, tea, snack, dessert, etc.) I designed this Coffee Cup so all you have to do is pop in that gift card.  I will even personalize it with their name.  Check it out at my Etsy shop soon.  Thanks A Latte!

 

Reward that Grad!

It’s that time of year for celebration! Especially if you have or know of a successful student who will be graduating soon.  And we all know they will need lots and lots of gift cards to enjoy the summer, buy clothes for college, buy luggage for the big trip, or just to say congratulations!  I made this cute way to give that gift card (or cash).  Just flip the hat open, write your sincere message, pop in gift card and you’re set!  Look for it at my Etsy shop today. 

Count It Down

Begin the count down.  You know the one where you look at the calendar and count how many days left.  Only X number of days until the big event:  vacation, graduation, wedding, baby due date, RETIREMENT, etc.  Well I am here to help you get even more excited about that event.  I created a cool way to keep track of the count down.  This magnetic white board will stick to your refrigerator. Use the dry erase marker to change the number each day.  Now your family and friends can see how many more days to the fun. I have come up with some designs but I will work with you to personalize it.  Check them out here.  P.S. This would make a great gift for the bride to be, or mother’s day, or your soon to retire dad, etc.  Also other cool white board ideas at my shop at Etsy.
