It’s that season again—full of holiday joy and holiday craziness. No matter what holiday you celebrate, December has become the traditional time to show appreciation for the people you’re grateful to have in your life— whether it’s your best friend since childhood, the mail carrier who comes in the snowstorm, the bus driver who is never late, or the neighbor who checks on your cat. This year, celebrate the joy of giving with gifts that will make someone else’s life just a little bit easier.
Local food. Everyone loves the touch of home cooking … but most of us barely have time to get dinner on the table! Hit a winter farmers market and scoop up locally made baked goods, artisanal cheeses, local wine and beer, or cold weather favorites likes soups and dips.
Little luxuries. The best gifts are things people really want—and they don’t have to be large or expensive! Cashmere gloves for the crossing guard, a bag of the best coffee beans for the bus driver, or elegant hand lotion for the teacher will be used and appreciated.
Blooming beauty. Bring sunshine into someone’s life with colorful houseplants, a sunny flower arrangement, or winter blooming bulbs like paper whites or Amaryllis—and let the gift of nature keep on giving.
Comfort and joy. Anyone who is on their feet a lot will appreciate the gift of Okabashi sandals and flip flops. Our Copenhagen clogs will keep feet happy and healthy by supporting proper alignment and posture all year long!
