What do you buy for the person who has everything? (Other than a bottle of wine, that is.)
During the holidays, we try to find that “special thing” to get for our loved ones, our teachers, our mentors, and sometimes for people we don’t really know. We tend to spot things that we like, instead of things that they’ll like. (Good for building our own wish list, but can result in the Homer Bowling Ball incident.) What to do though, when you don’t know what they like? What colours their home is decorated in?
Tactic #1: Get something that speaks to your relationship
Did you tour the gardens this summer at the Garden & Art Tour? How about Mountain Harvest, the garden book from NCES?
Maybe you like to go for coffee or tea on a regular basis; how about a nice gift basket of appropriate accessories?
Did you share a rant recently about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? We have several products that help cut out the daily plastic in our lives.
Tactic #2: Look for the pretty
Most people appreciate the finer things in life (and they don’t need to break the bank!).
Salt & Pepper shaker sets are a great way to splash up a table, don’t take too much space, and are fun to get even if you already have some.
Tactic #3: Get a Gift Receipt or even a Gift Certificate
If you’re not sure, put your mind at ease by asking for a gift receipt. They’ll get something to unwrap on Christmas morning, and you’ll get the piece of mind that even if they don’t like it they can exchange it for something amazing for their home. If you’re short on time or really just don’t know what to get, or maybe you know they’re saving up for a juicer, get them a Gift Certificate. We’re happy to accommodate any denomination in store, or even for a specific item like a Cake Decorating Class.
