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. 

Back to the GRIND

Some of my grandchildren live in Georgia where they start back to school in less that two weeks!  This got me to thinking about all the teachers, school bus drivers, car poolers, and moms that are busy getting ready to go back to the grind.

Check out my fun way to help them ease into it with my coffee shop gift card holder. It is a sweet coffee pun that will make them smile, especially when you add their favorite coffee shop gift card.

A Wee Bit of GREEN

Rumor in our family is that my mom was a wee bit of Irish (however, there is some questionable ancestry involving circus performers-lol).  Anyhow as long as I can remember, I was told I’m half Irish.  And on St. Patrick’s Day isn’t everyone? So here to help you are some items from my Etsy shop.

Shoot your family wearing some green. Use these awesome St. Patrick’s Day party props to update your Instagram or Facebook page. Bring to work on the 17th and make them smile. And for those family and friends far away, let them know you love them ‘a latte ‘with these St. Patrick’s Day coffee shop cards.  Just pop in a Starbucks green gift card and mail.

Never Late

It is a joke in my family on how I NEVER can stand to be late. Not for meeting folks late, not for getting to theater late, and definately not getting to a restaurant late.  LOL

But I realize we are not all me (thank goodness) and for those who might have let the pending Valentine’s day count down sneak up on you, I have the perfect gift idea.

You have till 2/7 to order, receive in mail, pop in gift card and get it mailed out to your sweethearts. Or if you are just handing them the card, you can even stall till 2/9. So you now have no excuse to be late with-gift-cardgetting the perfect gift!

 

 

 

Valentines Day is almost here

Hard to believe that it is just over a month away for HEART DAY.  I have already put up my valentines decor (love that red and black).  And best of all – my early bird approach is going to make you smile too.  In my Etsy shop I have three wonderful ways to show your love some love.

First a  manly tape measure card that holds a gift card from any hardware store – a sure way to his  heart.

Next I fashioned an awesome popcorn box perfect for popping a movie house gift card inside. Good for family, friends or that special move date.

Lastly a great idea for mom.  A cute coin purse for your shopping momma.  Just put in a gift card from her favorite store.

Now you can say “thank you” for making your Valentines Day shopping a breeze.
