Mother’s Day

It’s no secret that Mother’s Day this year will be a little different due to Covid-19 but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less special than other years. Whether you’re a state, city or street away from your mom, you can cross that divide with a special and unique gift.

Most moms are happy with a simple message and phone call but here are some ways to send her your love while social distancing;

  1. Order from her favorite restaurant and have it delivered right to her doorstep
  2. If she has any hobbies like gardening or knitting, check out online retailers for items she’ll love
  3. Dropping off flowers and a personalized card are a classic go to
  4. Have a bottle of her favorite bevvy delivered and partake in a virtual happy hour celebration
  5. Plan for a future outing and send her details of when and where you’ll be taking her

And of course, to all the moms out there, we would like to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day.

Christmas Gift Guide

With just a few days left before Jolly Old Saint Nick comes down our chimneys to place gifts for you and yours under the tree, we want to make sure your holiday gift buying is all taken care of and completed.

So what do you do when you run out of gift ideas? Here are some tips to help you make this holiday season unforgettable.

If you can’t think of what to get that special someone, especially if you’re already out shopping, scroll through their social media for items or brands that they post with or about.

When it comes to our parents, gift buying is a little more difficult even though they usually don’t ask for anything. But think of hobbies, restaurants, or their daily routine and what items they use daily. No matter how big or small they will remember you gifted it to them when they go to use it.

And of course, the kids. Contrary to popular belief they are the hardest to shop for as so many options exist and choosing the right one is a 50/50 chance. Kids will typically use toys for a short period of time and then move on. However, we have a trick that could save the day!  Buy small gifts, wrap individually and turn into one BIG bundled surprise. Their love for the holiday isn’t really based on what they get but how many and how big their gift is.

Try these tips out and let us know what tricks you have up your sleeve, Happy Holidays.
