Need a Few Gift Ideas?

I am just starting my gift shopping and wanted to share a few great gift ideas for those people on our list who are tough to shop for…

Unusual gifts – How about whiskey rocks (shown on left) that will keep your drink chilled but not watered down?   I found and they have lots of fun ideas, including a portable ping pong set – don’t we all need one of those?

Personalized stationary – I am big believer in hand written notes and this can make a wonderful gift that you know will get used.  Check out or for inspiration.  Also, a nice pen makes a great gift; Silberman Brown Stationers has a great selection of pens and a multitude of options for personalized stationary.

Cooking classes – Not only a gift, but a fun experience as well. features classes like “Better with Bacon” and “Cooking without Recipes” to bring out your inner chef.

Terrarium – If you prefer something homemade, find an interesting glass vase or jar and add rocks, shells, mosses, orchids or succulents, these are beautiful on bathroom counters and make great hostess gifts.


Most importantly, your presence is the greatest gift you can give, so be sure not to over-do it this holiday season and remember to take care of yourself so you can fully enjoy your time with friends and family.  Enjoy the season!
