Thinking about a favorite hostess gift this year…

What will the gift be that everyone wants. Last year we sold our Native Union telephones. You remember the telephone that connects to your phone and keeps 96% of radiation out of your ears. I think that was and still is a great gift. The colors are fab and there are many new things in the line here in the store. The company has added a speaker set. You set your phone on the front of the speakers and you have a great sound system, or just chat and use it as a speaker phone. It’s great for anyone with an office!!!

I have three host gift favorites. My first are my tassel key chains that take on the Hermes or Chanel look. They’re $35.00 and I love the olive leather one… now I can find my keys in my purse!!! The next are the NEST Holiday candles. The scent is so wonderful you can use this one year-around. Three different sizes and many other NEST selections as well, soaps, sprays are great gifts. My third is anything in our chocolate, caramel, candy section available in the store!!! All of you know what a SUGAR person I am. The caramels with sea salt are killer, candy canes infused with chocolate and chocolate covered figs… Oh the power of suggestion, I’m signing off to sample the chocolates… again.

Happy Holidays to you and all of your families. Terry

Girls meet the new powerful man in my life…

The perfect Holiday gift for the gadget guy or gal. If you’re like me there are never enough outlets for all my gadgets. Electroman Multi-Outlet Surge Protector to the rescue.

The Electro Man is intended to be a friendly-faced alternative to everyday multi-outlets. Plug it into a safe and grounded outlet and you’re ready to go. This product is not recommended for appliances that draw higher amounts of electricity (like air conditioners, heater, hair driers, etc.). If in doubt, don’t plug it in. Green light indicates when power is running to arms and legs.

Electro man’s legs and arms have three-prong sockets with enough room even for the biggest adapter.

Features a circuit breaker switch and grounded plugs for safety.

Fun alternative to the standard, clunky multi-plug.

Perfect for home, school or office.

Measures 14″ L x 12″ W x 1/2″ D with a 28″ L cable length

Thoughts on when to “Deck the Halls”…

I was determined no matter what to wait until AFTER Halloween to decorate the store. I am told all the major cities have decorated for Christmas already, ornaments, music, even Santa is walking around. Let’s breath a little bit and celebrate each holiday as it should be. Thanksgiving is coming up, my favorite holiday. For over twenty years we have celebrated Thanksgiving at our house. This year we are going to my daughter’s house. New location but same fabulous experience with everyone adding their touch to the meal. We have gone from 12 to a 43 person sit down dinner. I usually bake a turkey and everyone brings their specialty dish we have come to love so much. My brother, Andrew, makes the best yams with pecans dotted with marshmallows on the top. Kim makes the desserts, salad by Kim R, stuffing by Laura, everyone contributes. A toast is extended, we dine for hours and roll out the door for the ride home.

Table settings are near and dear to me, as you may know. Juliska’s Berry and Thread pattern is so classic and pretty, it goes with everything. For fun I have been using NESTcandles and giving everyone a little candle as a gift. I love the combo box, you can give out 12 different candles and the packaging is great. I’ll show you a picture of what I mean. As the holiday season approaches enjoy your day with your friends and family, I wish you joy, health and love and oh by the way I was born on Thanksgiving.  Lucky me!!!
