Great Gifts You Don’t Have to Wait In Line For!

comments 0

As I relax here on Thanksgiving night in my favorite chair with a tummy full of terrific food, I find myself browsing online to see which stores will be offering Black Friday specials on their sites. I am not one to spend hours in line to score some savings, though I know many people who are! But – as long as I’ll be awake anyway, watching holiday movies and just generally soaking up the goodness of the day, I thought it could be fun to get some great online buys. Much to my surprise, I found that I’m late to the game!

While some stores are sticking to their 12am, Friday schedule, many began their Black Friday sales days ago. And while it looks as though I’ve missed out on some sales I would have been happy to take advantage of, I must admit I’m even happier that I didn’t know about them. The past few days for me have been full of food shopping, slow cooking, catching up with family and friends, and lazy cups of coffee. In short, I wish more days were like them. Surrounded by good people, good eats, and some much-appreciated time to relax, life has been…well…good! And I’m grateful that goodness wasn’t compromised by taking time out to track every early Black Friday sale, inevitably taking the focus off this most special holiday. Because let’s face it – once you start, it’s hard to stop!

If you enjoy the thrill of the Black Friday hunt, I hope you’ve been having a great time this week and are primed for even more awesomeness later tonight! And if you’re like me, and are trying your best not to let the temptation of limited time prices and limited quantity items rob you of sleep and sanity, I hope you’ll consider our Christmas gift baskets when you do decide to shop. In fact, I think one of the things I love best about gift baskets is that they allow you to gift something wonderful without all the rush. You can shop on your own time, browse at your own pace, and send something to someone special that is slightly indulgent, impressive in appearance, and importantly, fun to receive! After all, in the Christmas season especially, more mail than we’d like turns out to be bills. And a gorgeous Christmas gift basket beats bills any day of the week – not just Black Friday. 🙂

Thanksgiving Gift Baskets: Send Your Hostess Gift Ahead of Time!

If you’re among the many people who will be trekking across many miles to spend Thanksgiving with your family, you’re keenly aware of how stressful many elements of this journey can be. There’s time away from work to schedule, clothing to pack, plane or train tickets or gas to purchase, and pets to prepare for the trip or prepare for a sitter. And that doesn’t even touch on the time involved in getting from Point A to Point B when it seems everyone else in the country is taking the exact same route you are! It’s no wonder most of us end up picking out little presents in the airport or shops along the way instead of shopping ahead of time.

The trouble with these last-minute gifts is that it’s usually not too tricky to determine that last-minute is exactly what they are. As we’re already struggling with luggage and a small amount of space, we’re restricted to tiny items we can easily fit in our bag. In addition to this, there is a limited selection and limited time – a dangerous combination that can lead to pocket-sized flashlights, key chains and gum! We have a better idea that is not only a much more desirable gift, but also saves you from the added frustration during an already impossibly busy time – Thanksgiving gift baskets.

Within our extensive selection of Fall and Thanksgiving gift baskets you’re sure to find the perfect something special for your friends or family. And – you can order it to arrive a day or two ahead of you! Imagine your loved ones’ surprise when they receive a gorgeous fall gift basket days before the turkey hits the oven, rather than a hurriedly-wrapped ballpoint pen set with the price tag still stuck to the bottom. Not only will they enjoy a fantastic gift, but they might finally believe you when you say you’re growing up! That said, we can’t guarantee you won’t still be at the ‘kid table’ this year, no matter how old you may be. 😉
