Hello Gorgeous! Normally, I offer you tips each month on hair and skin care, but this month I felt drawn to offer tips on holiday gifts. This came about after spending time with Santa. I took him my list and he was so impressed with it that I thought I'd share a few of my ideas with you. What impressed him most was that nothing on my list was for me. It was what I want to give to others. He was shocked by it and said I was the most caring soul who'd sat on his lap in a long time. That made my mom proud. Ruff, ruff, ruff! Here are some of the things I had on my list and my reasons why. Hopefully it will get your ideas flowing so your giving brings joy to a loved one this holiday season. Charlie’s Top Five Gift Ideas 1. The Texas Almanac says we are in for a colder winter than we’ve been accustomed to. Give socks, a hat, or a wrap to make sure your person stays warm. 2. Ladies love purses that are fashionable. Give one with a story behind it that says, “You're helping the environment while looking chic, cool and unique.” Purses by Smateria offer this. 3. Buying local boosts our community's economic health and creates jobs close to home. I want to give my best friend Larry (she's a Goldendoodle…yes Larry is a girl) something special and unique. I found a Doggie Spa Set by Nuluv. It's been pup tested and doggie approved and it's made locally in the Texas Hill Country. 4. A good night's rest is worth a lot, and you can get that when you sleep on a 100% Mulberry Silk pillowcase by Blissy. I hear they help keep your face moisturized and your hair from getting frizzy while you sleep. What a gift it is to wake up looking glamorous! 5. My fifth idea is for those of us who don't know what to give to bring joy to someone we care about. Try a Garbo Gift Card. When you give a gift card, the receiver gets the pleasure and joy of getting exactly what they want. You can purchase these for any amount; however, if you buy a $250 gift card, you get a $50 bonus gift card. That's a $300 value for only $250. Can't go wrong with this. All these things are available at Garbo. AND now through Monday November 28th you'll get 20% off all Boutique Items. And one last thing, if you purchase $85 in AVEDA products, you'll receive a complimentary trio…three travel sized AVEDA products of your choice. It carries a $35 value. Hurry in while they last! If you have any questions, you'd like me to answer, please email me at email@example.com. I hope these ideas help guide you in this season of giving. Shop early before it gets Ruff…Ruff out there and before the good stuff disappears. Happy Shopping and Happy Giving!
