• Tell Your Friends

Shopping for little kids can be extremely fun. No matter how many toys they already have, they’d still love to have as many as possible. The possibilities are endless! Adults are a different animal. Often, they don’t want anything, and you’re forced to buy something utilitarian that they really need (new make-up mirror, extension chord, oil change). Instead, to keep it fun, I like to dip into my list of “life’s little luxuries” when searching for a thoughtful and appreciative gift the recipient has no idea they want. My no-fail list includes lusciously scented soy candles from local boutiques, chocolate truffles and luxurious throws.

Alpaca Throw

These ultra soft, hand-loomed solid alpaca throws from the Canvas Home Store are exactly what I’m talking about. They’re probably not on someone’s birthday wish list, but they’re so luxurious, they’ll do more than just sit on the receiver’s shelf. Who wouldn’t love one of these? If that’s you, leave us a comment before 12/11c Monday, July 4 to be entered into the random drawing for one of these velvety-soft blankets.

This week’s question: What’s your go-to gift for the person who has everything? Specialty coffee from a local roaster? A comfy, luxurious throw? Rich hand cream from your favorite spa?

    My go to gift is a custom made gift basket of whatever their guilty pleasures may be… candles, coffees, margaritas or game night! Throw in some gift cards and even if they have "everything" the gift is useful and thoughtful.

    I make homemade aprons. They always seem to be a big hit. They are one of a kind so I never have to worry about it being a duplicate!

    Chocolate with a gift certificate to be pampered!

    A bottle of wine, loaf of bread and several different cheeses in a gift basket……so easy to do.
