Secret holiday gift guide revealed

post by Village Antiques

Over Thanksgiving, I ran into a major problem.

 

A TON of my friends had just had birthdays…

 

But I had been so busy with my store that I hadn’t had a chance to get them any gifts.

 

Sure I could have just gone and picked up some generic gift, wrapped it, and been done with it…

 

But I wanted to get them something special.

 

Something unique and beautiful that they would remember forever.

 

So I brainstormed…and brainstormed some more…and brainstormed some more until I found a gift that would speak to their heart.

 

It was such a joy to see my friends delighted by these carefully-selected gifts.

 

And I realized then that my customers —  in all their fabulousness — are probably trying to find beautiful and unique gifts that they can give to their friends and family too!  

 

But like me, you might be overwhelmed with trying to find it all!

 

So I’ve put together a complete list of all the holiday and hostess gifts that I brainstormed.

 

Because you know I’m always trying to make your life easier,

 

And this list will take all of the hard work out of gift buying.

 

Its packed with unique and gorgeous gift ideas that will amaze your loved ones. Check it out below:

Recently, I read a wonderful book that I would love to share with you. I gave this very book to two friends over Thanksgiving. I cried at least 7 times reading this book, I love, love, loved it.

Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone by Brene Brown

It’s stuff you already know in your heart, but need to read.  My only regret – not having one of those gorgeous velvet bookmarks to keep my place!
